This morning at work I had my annual health review for lower insurance rates. They do blood work, weight, BMI, body fat %, etc. It's great to have cheaper insurance but I wasn't very happy during my personal assessment meeting today.
In 2005 my body fat was 1% lower that it is now. That was 2 kids and 6 years ago. I'd think only varying by 1% would be a good thing. But this sweet young girl who was doing my analysis challenged me to do better. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Obviously I'm a bit wound up about this. She should have been telling me great job on maintaining myself in my old age. She also told me that snacking every 2-3 hours is the best way to eat. Agreed. However, I simply don't have time to prepare healthy snacks everyday for myself so I choose not to snack. It's not like I'm eating candy bars between meals. But still she told me that everyday when I get home from work before doing anything else I should pack up my lunch bag with healthy snacks for the next day. Great idea - maybe she'd like to get my kids settled, dinner on the table, homework done and signed for me so I can pack myself some snacks.
I'm done. There were other things that I felt she shouldn't have said to me and maybe if I would have just agreed with her instead of telling her why I do the things I do it would have gone better. But I pride myself in being a pretty healthy person and my results were all in the "good" category so she should have just backed off.
Now I'm going to go get today's 7 mile run in and maybe eat a healthy snack :)
