So I went to an on-site health screening for the school district today. $20 off our monthly insurance rates is the incentive for taking the time to go and do it. Fill out a survey, pin-prick blood drawn for cholesterol checks, height, weight, blood pressure, and personal consultation with a nurse practitioner on the results.
Good news, guys. I'm in perfect health! *sarcasm* My waist line is perfect. My cholesterol could not be better. Blood pressure is good. You name it - picture perfect good health. (Its a little unsettling that the state of health in our world is that someone who appears to be perfectly healthy can, in fact, not be.)
There was a red flag on just one thing. I don't exercise frequently enough, according to the survey I filled out. Of which I said, I do a little bit of moderate activity and NEVER vigorous activity.
The nice nurse practitioner/Blue Cross lady says, "Really??? You don't exercise AT ALL?" I explained to her that I just finished 5 months of chemotherapy and I'm tired ALL THE TIME, so currently, aside from gentle yoga, no, I am not exercising.
*shocked silence* The Blue Cross lady will be praying for me.
I find this all outrageously humorous. I'm glad I'm getting $20 off my insurance rates though. Too bad for them that this year they are paying close to a million dollars for my cancer treatment. ha. I cry/laughed about it on the drive back to my building. Sigh.
I do plan to start exercising soon. After I heal up from surgery. I've been pondering different things that I can do, including considering getting a personal trainer to enforce that I actually do them. Zumba has always been on my list of "exercise I can tolerate doing".
Well, I discovered today that the new teacher across the hallway is a Zumba certified instructor and will be starting up some after-school Zumba classes for any of the staff interested in attending.
If that isn't divine intervention, I don't know what is.
