Walgreens #WayToWellTour | Mommy Runs It

Last week I told you about the Walgreens Way To Well Tour – a community outreach program that provides free preventative and early detection health services to communities across the country. And earlier this week, I got the chance to visit the tour bus when it stopped by my hometown.

Way To Well Tour Bus

As promised, I participated in all of the available health screenings. And guess what – I have the “real body age” (one of the tests) of a spry 38 year old. Go me.

I was also screened for total cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index, body composition, skeletal muscle, resting metabolism, visceral fat, real body age, and body weight. The health screeners took my blood pressure, did a finger prick to collect a sample of my blood, and measured me on a body composition scale/monitor. The whole thing took less than 20 minutes and was nearly painless (except for the finger prick – because, needle.)

Just about all of my measurements were in the normal range. My body fat was 30.1%, which is a good bit higher than I expected (based on the calculations of my personal body fat scale) but still in the normal range for a woman of my age. My visceral fat (“belly fat”), was 7%, which also falls into the normal range.

Two measurements did fall outside of the normal range:

1) My cholesterol was 204 (normal = <200), but as I discussed with the health screener, this has been my exact cholesterol level for probably 10+ years. In the past, I’ve been told that this is because my “good” cholesterol is high. There’s a good chance that this is still the case, but I need to have it checked out by my doctor just to be sure.

2) My glucose (blood sugar) was 90, which put me in the normal range for someone who is fasting – which I wasn’t. Still, this wasn’t cause for concern – it just indicated that I needed to eat something.

If you’re interested in learning more about the tour and if/when it’ll be coming to your town, you can visit for more info. (You must be 18 or older to participate.)

Balance® Rewards for Healthy Choices

At the tour, I also picked up some information about the Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices program, which rewards members for making healthy choices like walking, running, weight management, and testing your blood pressure and blood glucose.* It’s easy – you earn points for the healthy activities you do. The more points you earn, the greater the reward. And more reward points means more savings. For example, if you earn 5,000 reward points, you redeem them for $5 to put toward your Walgreens purchase. Earn 10,000 points? Redeem them for $10 off your purchase. And so on.

To make things even easier, you can use fitness devices (like a FitBit)  and other digital applications to help track your personal health and fitness goals. You can even sync your device to auto-log your healthy activities into your Balance Rewards account. The folks at the Way To Well Tour can help you do this, or you can do it on your own by going to and clicking on “Connect a Device/App.”

The awesome folks from the Way To Well Tour have given me a FitBit Flex to  help me get started with the Balance Rewards for healthy choices program. And they’re also giving a FitBit Flex to one of you! Just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter to enter. Good luck!
