Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

Farewell health insurance. Lets hope I don’t need you anytime soon.

Total deadbeat blogger here. I’ve abandoned my duties because I kinda haven’t head anything all that exciting to say.

As you know, I spent this past weekend at my mom’s house. We did a lot of relaxing, eating, shopping and movie watching. We watched It’s Complicated (I swear that movie makes me want to get ripped), I am Sam (my eyes were blood-shot and puffy from crying so much) and Because I’ve Said So (starring my all time fave- Mandy Moore!! Yes, I’m serious.). We attempted to watch Remember Me (purchased from Red Box–coolest thing ever) but it was a total snooze fest and called it quits after 20 minutes. Why do people like it so much?

So as of next week, I am without health insurance. This means no more Mimi (my therapist) which is okay because I’m kind of over it. I LOVE her therapy style and hope to emulate her with my clients but I guess I’m not fully committed to doing the work. Such a bummer because life would rock without my insane food issues. Lack of health coverage also brings up a slight concern about whether it’s a good idea to do a triathlon without coverage. God forbid something happens (especially in the water) and my medical bills are through the roof. What do you guys think about this? Is it safe to participate in a triathlon without health insurance? Would you do it?

I’m making something delicious tonight so tune in. Unless you’re not into ketchup that is.

  1. I would say yes…I don’t think you should live life thinking, “what if?” all the time 🙂

  2. I would say it’d be safe if you felt comfortable in the open water swim part… but you said you didn’t, right? It could suck if you get even more paranoid because you know that you don’t have health insurance while you’re in the water.

    I went without it for a few months after I graduated from college and didn’t think it’d be a huge deal – I hadn’t used mine for anything but birth control prescriptions for the last 4 years. Well, 1 month before new health insurance would kick in I got a killer… well, we never really figured out what it was. Food poisoning/something similar that lasted for 2 weeks and got so bad that Chris made me go to the hospital. $550 later… no new information & no tests (the doctor just told me to take immodium and wait it out) plus that lovely bill. I was so pissed.

    Err, not to say you’ll end up like that. Good health vibes!

  3. I think it would be okay….I mean I have done tons of races and haven’t ever needed Health Insurance. (knock on wood) but it is totally all about what YOU are comfortable with that matters the most!!!

  5. you shouldn’t have any problems with the triathlon. in the water, they have lifeguards out on kayaks and stuff, so it’s no less safe than going swimming in a pool or lake for fun!

  6. Remember me was amazing in the last seven minutes.. I fell asleep and had to rewind the whole movie and watch in reverse…
