Two Up, Town DownPosted: December 16, 2009
Today had 2 ups and today had 2 downs. And it went down, down, up, up.
It started at work when I headed down to donate blood. First my co-worker and I waiting forever when non one was there only to find out that I did not pass the iron test, twice.
I had matching middle fingers for the rest of the afternoon and down one. The most disturbing part was they gave me a list of foods I should eat to increase my iron, and I currently eat all of them minus my reduction in meat!
The tech also said it could be due to the fact that I had two cups of tea this morning? I have never heard of that before, but oh well. I have only been turned down from donating one other time, and I really wonder if it is that big of a difference due to my decrease in meat. Do vegetarians have a hard time donating? It got me thinking.
For lunch we had Indian Food Day, but I did not take a picture. I had a delicious yellow curry and naan.
My afternoon snack of choice these days, yogurt and granola.
Finally at the gym I could run away the day! This is where down number 2 comes into play. As I was running, a child (seriously not over the age of 10) was placed on the treadmill next to me by a personal trainer to run for 2min at 4mph…he could not do it, and his trainer could not care less. I wanted to say something encouraging to him, but I didn’t really know if I would scare him or make him feel bad. I couldn’t help thinking that he should totally be playing rec basketball with his friends, not at a smelly gym with a PT! He is a kid! Anyway, it was a bummer.
When I got home I was pretty blah, but I opened the mailbox and saw two amazing things!
On the plate: a pizza with tomato, pesto and flax sauce, feta and parm, pesto tortalenni, broccoli and mushrooms.
My spirits are lifted and my belly is full. I am going to go read my new Real Simple, sit with Sissy and
lower my iron a little bit more have a cup of tea.
Have a Great Night!
Huge day at work tomorrow ahhhh!!!!
