It appears I am mere mortal afterall
Friday, November 04, 2011
Last month I took a free health risk assessment at work. I knew that I had been letting things go a bit, using the logic that I would get on it soon. I got the results yesterday and was shocked at what I seen. First off, I don’t ever think of how old I am and it caught me off guard in print. I’m seven months into year 40 and still raising my pizza slice and ice scream spoon up in the air like I just don’t care. I have not seen a problem with it, my body begs to differ.
So, to sum up how the results look, I would say that they are basically surprised I have not had a heart attack, just not in so many words. Well, here are the words…
"Unfortunately, because you have a waist measurement of more than 40 inches, have low HDL cholesterol, have a reading indicating high blood pressure, have high triglycerides, AND have high blood glucose, you have metabolic syndrome."
Well. Guess it is a good thing I have been off the sauce and smokes for years. It appears I am mere mortal after all. Looks like day one is here on turning this thing around.
