What lab tests should I get?

I'm changing from Kaiser to a PPO plan starting next year, so I'd like to take advantage of the lab tests that Kaiser offers before the end of the year.

I've recently had urinalysis, hemoglobin, glucose, TSH, and B12 tests, all of which turned up normal. I'm an Asian female, 25 years old, 5'1", 105 pounds. I don't have major health concerns, but I'm not as healthy as I should be, meaning at most I go for a half hour walk once a week and drink sugary drinks more often than I should. I don't smoke or drink alcohol, however, and have cut down a lot on junky snacks. It's a work in progress. I do have issues with fatigue sometimes, and I hardly ever feel rested upon waking. I have also had ongoing skin problems, starting with severe acne as a teenager. While my skin has smoothed out, I still have red patches on my cheeks, chin, and sides of the nose. I may just need to drink more water, though. Who knows.
I'm just wondering what other lab tests, if any, I should be considering.
