Something fun happened today. My health care provider, Kaiser Permanente sent me a "Health Log." It said that my blood pressure was within the IDEAL range, that my BMI was within the IDEAL range and that my last LDL Cholesterol test was within the IDEAL range.
HOW COOL IS THAT?
I thought you would never ask. It is very cool. It has not always been so. When I started with Spark, now conming up on two and a half years ago, those numbers were anything but ideal. I was in TROUBLE. But no more.
I am also up to date on all th screenings I need for my age: mammo, colon cancer screening, pneumonia shot, bone density. This means I am taking care of myself, as we all need to.
SO AREN'T YOU LUCKY?
I thought you might ask that. Yes, I am fortunate, lucky, blessed. It's not all our doing. Bad things happen to people living a healthy life style and we don't control everything. So I am grateful.
MY TAKE AWAY?
I'm giving it my best shot to live a healthy life and "Spark along" each day. It's so worth it to do what I can to be healthy. So worth it. And my plan is to never take my health for granted. It's not all up to me, but it's what I can do.
And by the way: YAY!!!!!!!
