Totally Frenched Out

A couple of months ago, I started participating in a government nutrition study that is meant to correlate the relationship between eating habits and overall health.  The first part is a bit time-consuming because there are three days where you will need to fill out a food diary, but after that, they only send one short survey per month.

There's also an opportunity to do a free health check-up at a local clinic.  I did mine last week, and they drew four vials of blood, took my vitals, did a short strength test and then measured my body fat and BMI.  If you've ever wanted to know exactly how much each leg/arm weighs, than this is for you. :)  I'll also get my cholesterol results by mail in a few weeks. 

Besides that, there isn't really any "reward" for participating, but I like the idea that I am contributing towards health research.  They are still looking for other participants, so if anyone is interested in signing up, you can do so at:

En garde !

C: OK, time to clean!
Me: Oh come on, it's 8:30 on a Saturday morning, I haven't even finished my tea...
C: Are you complaining because your husband wants to clean??
Me: Gotta give you that one. Touché!
C: Touché? What are you talking about, I haven't touched anything yet.
