We're Gettin' Healthier!

Ahhh, to feel healthy again! I think my sickness is finally behind me! Thank God! I've never had anything like that before and I'm so thankful it only lasted three days- three days too long still- but at least it's over. I'm still not back to my regular appetite and eating light and easily digestible foods, but we're getting there! And just in time for the nice spring-like weather we've all been anxiously awaiting here in the Midwest. :)

I'm not the only one that's gettin' healthy around here. I get email updates and newsletters from the Healthiest State Initiative Iowa has been involved in during the last couple years. The 2012 rankings of the Well-Being Index were just released recently and Iowa's movin' on up! We moved from 16th in 2011 to being ranked 9th for 2012. And we've moved up 10 rankings since 2010 when Iowa was in the 19th spot. I'm so excited and happy about this news! It means that our state population is really starting to take to heart their health and well-being.
