Not to brag, but I'm a -20.

So for my health insurance through work, we have the option to have a yearly screening that, if you score in the "healthy range" (cholesterol, weight, blood sugar, metabolic functions, yada yada yada) you get a huge discount on your  health insurance rates.  Basically, you want a "0" or less (On a scale from -20 to +20)  And, I am happy to announce that for the second year in a row, i am a -20!  Apparently, I excel at health!!  I have been pre-diabetic for years, and i am very pleased that for a second year in a row, i have just managed to squeeze my blood sugar level into a healthy range.  So apparently, running lots of marathons is good for you.

I don't know how to put this, but I'M KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

There is literally no other point to this post than me bragging about my amazing cholesterol levels and discounted health insurance.  Maybe i should turn this into healthy living blog???

I'm just kidding.  This will never be a healthy living blog.  I love gummy bears and vodka too much.  Both together and separately.   Is it Thanksgiving yet?


  1. Way to go. I guess Bloody Mary's, Guinness, gummy bears and Oreos are part of the diet of healthy living people! :-) I wish my insurance plan would give a discount to me. They just raised my rates a lot for next year.

  2. Good job Sara- you should get a triple gold star for being so healthy. You must have scored a -20 because you don't mix gummy bears and vodka. :-)

    I wish that it was Thanksgiving because I want my cheat day darn it!

  3. Good for you!!! Also, I see that you're Daily Mile is happy again so it looks like you are officially a Healthy Living blogger!!!

  4. Good for you! And you just prove you can have good numbers and not be a healthy living freak (I mean that in a nice way, of course).

  5. Niiiice! My company does something similar - there is this whole points system, and a variety of things you can do to earn points (so if your blood work isn't as stellar, you can earn points by exercising or doing self-education).

  6. CONGRATULATIONS on your -20!!! That is AWESOME!!!!! What great news for you to receive during Thanksgiving Week, now you can live it up on Thanksgiving Day and for the holidays!!! =)

  7. very nice...I think I need to get my numbers checked its been a couple of years...and Oh YES, Thursday I will be thankful for pie and wine!


  8. Yeah! Way to go!

    For me, running helped get my asthma issues under control. Training for a marathon helped more on my lung function tests than months of taking stupid asthma meds.

    Yay, running! The wonder drug.

  9. Woo congrats!! Definitely something to brag about :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!
