Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Blood Donation

I forgot that I had signed up for the office blood donation today. The meeting popped up on my calendar and reminded me!! However, I had a good breakfast in me, of course (because all people know you can not start the day without breakfast - which was proved by the passed out lady that had eaten a hard boiled egg and a cup of coffee that day... it was 10.30 when she donated!), but the pint of blood they take (although VERY worth it in terms of community service) does not make for a very good fitness day.

I had the sugar juice and cookie after - which helped perk me up right after and I've done all the right stuff today - lots of fluids etc...(and I ate REALLY Well today!! yay me) but really... you can't go and exercise hard in less then 12 hours post donation.

So I will have to skip this one in the name of saving lives.... is there a more Noble Cause!!?? maybe Trrrrruuuuue luuuuuuvvvvvveeeee.... teehee

I've always been so scared to give blood, but good for you that you did!

Donating blood is a wonderful thing!!!

When in high school and college, I volunteered a lot about the local blood center. That was the days before we wore gloves and we'd clean up blood with our bare hands! :-0

Anyway, out of the hundreds of people I witness donate blood, I only saw three people pass out. One lady, my dad and me. lol
