The Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour has been in Houston so Willie and I made our way there to get our numbers checked. I had been to the tour before but this was Willie’s first time and he was pretty impressed.
The bus was very nice and the Fitbit and other health devices were on display. Don’t forget you can connect your device to the Walgreens Balance® Rewards*+ account to earn points for your health tests and your steps.
So the first step is entering your information and getting aboard the bus. The first thing you do is get your blood pressure taken and your blood drawn. It’s just a finger prick, nothing serious. The information found out during this test: total cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure.
We moved on to the second room to collect more health information. We stepped on the 7 in 1 weight analysis to determine our body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age and body weight. And after that, we went to talk to the pharmacist about our results. The whole process was very quick and very easy.
It’s important to get your numbers checked so you know that you’re on track with your health. It’s important to stay on top of your health! I’m proud to say that my numbers checked out. This is a big deal for me because I was AFRAID to get my numbers checked when I was overweight which wasn’t the smartest thing. That wasn’t solving anything that was just running from the truth.
I might have a low blood pressure problem, but all blog readers know that is something I’ve been struggling with for a long time. Other than that my numbers came back in the normal range. It’s important to get up and get active! We are living proof that a healthy diet and activity can take you a long way. Don’t make our mistake and ignore your health. Get your numbers checked.

As you know last week, I announced a giveaway for a Fitbit. I am glad to announce the winner is Jessica H. I will e-mail the winner so you can start enjoying your own fitbit.
