Who Needs Medicine?

I work for a health insurance company and every year we have an opportunity to decrease our annual medical benefit premium by participating in a biometric screening.  They measure our cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, BMI, and blood pressure.  I signed up last week and silly me forgot I had it this morning.  I drank my green smoothie with kale and ate some bacon (3 slices).  I was supposed to fast for 9 to 12 hours!!  EEK!


I also had boot camp this morning, which I did not feel like attending and Monte had us running and running and running.  We ran 5 miles today plus did over 700 ab reps!  I thought he lost his mind.  I left there so tired.  My feet hurt and I probably need to buy new running shoes because I already wore these out after 6 months with all of this boot camp running!


I arrived at work and checked my calendar for the day and lo and behold….there it is!  I have a 9:15 am the appointment for my biometric screening.

I almost panicked because I knew I had been eating, did not fast and was rushing in to work to start my 8:30 am call which can turn out stressful.  I go down early, about 9 am, and go through all of my screening.  They have a counselor at the end to review your results.  My results were EXCELLENT!  I was soooooooo excited.  Check it out!IMG_0371

My HDL was so high (over 100) they didn’t record it.  Same goes for my LDL – it was so low they didn’t count it.  My triglycerides were on point and so was my glucose level CONSIDERING I drank a green kale fruit smoothie this morning (16 oz)!!!  HOT DOG!  My blood pressure was 90/60 and I had to ask if that was considered too low.  She said keep doing what I am doing because she wished she was in that range.  My BMI was 24.2 (I just skated by).  I am 5 foot 2 and 132 so I think that isn’t too bad.  I WAS 140 and then 137 so I am going in the right direction!

Who needs medicine when all you need is good exercise and a decent diet?  Fresh fruits and veggies and treats in moderation?  I am so happy for Monte and Heather pushing me so at the tender age of 43 I have biometric stats of a person much younger.  God willing I plan to be around for a long time and consistent exercise (5 days a week) is MY MEDICINE!!!!!  And it tastes GOOD too!!!!

    also agree with your opinions that drugs were used in cancer medicine. An addiction that is growing rapidly in our country and there are many elements working in our society to control this epidemic. I appreciate your steps that have you taken against drugs addicted.
