3/24- My first physical in a decade. And in medicine, the numbers matter. Weight: 240 on Mar 1 227 on Mar 24 Blood pressure: 112/78 Later today, I'll add my blood work numbers to my Healthier Me page. $675 The hospital bills have come in from Zach's urological issues in Jan and Feb. We go in for his follow up today- I fully expect that he will pass with flying colors. 15% I got a raise at work. Kind of. When my company was acquired, we all had to be "mapped" into 3M's job descriptions and pay grades. I ended up in the group who were underpaid. 3M developed a plan to give small increases over the course of 3 years to bring us up to the very bottom of our pay scales. Yes, there are many, many, many problems with that. Anyway, back in January, I got a 3% increase for that project. In March, I got a similar increase for my merit increase. And yesterday, I found out that, in April, I'm being bumped up to the bottom of my pay scale- 3M found a way to put those funds into the salaries of those impacted. It's quite a big jump for me- an overall 15% increase! $25 That's the amount of money I've been able to raise for The Race for the Cure so far. I have a $50 donation to make from my father-in-law, too. I'm really hoping to be able to raise more money and at least meet my minimum goal of $150. I'm halfway there! Personally, the most important number to me is 11312. That's my bib number for the Race for the Cure. Never dreamed I would ever have a bib for a 5K of any kind!
