No, my health assessment did not drive me mad. Yes, I'll start blogging more. Yes, I've been preoccupied with a different activity. No, I'm not ready to focus on my weight. Yes, I should be because man I feel fat. No, I have not started smoking again. Yes, I'm on my way toward 2 months. but, I've also been under the weather for the past few days so I'm not feeling terribly motivated. Especially because you don't need to know those details.
Yesterday I did my work related health assessment. By participating, you can get a discount on your premium increase in the following year.
Age: 43 (up from last year, good thing too) Height: 5'8" (same as last year) Weight: 265 lbs. (up from last year) Blood Pressure: 134/82 (similar to last year)
I got my blood drawn as well. Those vampires better say that I'm a non-smoker like they did last year. Last year I was a HUGE smoker and they said I was not. I had to fight to get them to say I was to get the lowest score possible. Needed room for improvement. Not sure how much I improved even though I quit smoking. The weight is up and the age is up. They use it all against you.
I'll keep you informed as I need to start focusing on the waist-line. ...And people thought I have been a bitch from quiting smoking... lol.
Yesterday/last evening, I had wanted to mow the lawn but created plenty of obstacles not to do that work. It could definitely wait for the cool Saturday morning air.
Saturday morning cool air wasn't so cool and I woke up with neck pain. I really did! Not sure how I slept to do that. But whatever I did, I must have been in a really kinked up position because I had to have been cutting off the blood flow. My left arm was puffed up and my hand looked like it was suffering an allergic reaction. It's still a little sore (the hand) but the puffiness has gone down and the hand is back to normal. But still, my neck is all crickey and hurts. Pain is a wonderful excuse not to mow the lawn. But I could do without the pain.
42 year old white guy living in the City of Richmond Virginia. Bachelor's in Music, but I don't do a durn thing with it anymore. Love my job (not tellin till I know ya better). I am 85% positive minded but I do have a 5% negative and 10% evil side. Try to stay on the plus side, you'll like me a whole lot better. If not you'll likely loose me forever.
I may be 42, but I have a 10 year old imagination peppered with sarcasm. You will eventually meet my inner cynic, ...just warning you now. And out in public, don't make me mad, because I will show out.
