Thank You Jesus! Spring break/clean up week is over. The children are back in school and I spent the day at two “Me” appointments. Yay!!! Time alone spent shopping or at the beauty salon getting a facial, hair do or mani/pedi? Nice things to do but no. Instead of decorating the outside, these appointments focused on the inside.
First was InBody body composition analysis provided by my physician, Dr Rani Whitfield. This test provides comprehensive muscle and fat diagnosis essential for monitoring health and fitness. Test outputs include:
- Intercellular, Extracellular and Total Body Water
- Dry Lean Mass and Lean Body Mass
- Body Fat Mass
- Skeletal Muscle Mass
- Body Mass Index
- Percent Body Fat
- Segmental Lean Analysis – (Right Arm, Left Arm, Trunk, Right Leg, Left Leg)
- Segmental Fat Analysis – (Right Arm, Left Arm, Trunk, Right Leg, Left Leg)
- Basal Metabolic Rate
- Visceral Fat Level
The second appointment was a personal nutrition session with Brooke Schoonenberg, MS, RDN, LDN at Woman’s Center for Wellness. I’ve been led to vegan eating the past few months and wanted an education session to make sure all my bases are covered nutritionally. You are what you eat and relying on Dr Google would not cut it. (DYK due to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies now cover nutrition counseling at 100% as a preventative service? Take advantage! Check out all the preventative services covered by the ACA here. Thank you President Obama! )
The appointments were reasons to celebrate. I got very encouraging stats, confirmation that I’m on a good path, and detailed adjustments to continue the journey to my best body.
Knowledge is power. Knowledge of self is essential.
The more I learn about our bodies, how they work, and how to care for them – the more I marvel at God. Our bodies are His handiwork. It is a privilege, responsibility and joy to be good stewards of them.
#TempleCare is for His Glory!
