The results are back from the well-being tests at work, and I’m in good shape — everything from blood sugar to cholesterol. (In fact, according to this chart, I’m squarely in the “fitness” category, which, yay.) There was a brief moment of terror when I accidentally looked up my body-mass index (which is around 24) on the body fat percentage chart (which you can see on the chart above would not be “fitness.” At all.)

Also, we got $75 from United Healthcare for punching in our numbers to our profiles. I’m sure they’re going to share the info with like a million marketers, but hey, $75 gift card! Rather than opt for a single $75 offer, I took $25 to Bath & Body Works since I’m always buying air fresheners and lip balm there, and $25 to for purchases TBA — digital downloads? hair product? It’s all there.

I reserved the last $25 for, which lets you donate to whichever charity you see fit. At first I felt bad about not giving the whole $75 to them — there are earthquakes and tsunamis going on, people! — but I realized that it was still giving one-third of the money to charity, which is pretty damn good.

And now, off to the gym with Mr.  Torres. We have abs to create!

  1. Congrats to you. My work takes it a different way–if you dont take the tests, it costs you $500 per year.

    • It COSTS you? That’s crazy. I do wonder what they’d do if, say, my blood pressure was 200/100 or something like that — that shouldn’t be part of work hire contingencies, but they’d know about it.

  2. Since they dont share it with your doctor, I have to think they a re planning to charge people with preexisting conditions more in the future.
