Another not so bad night. Which makes me happy. Although I found out from my fellow supervisor that our manager had asked all of us to work 12 shifts on our weekend with NO OVERTIME. WHAT??? I was STEAMING MAD. I have not been approached by him yet, thank goodness, because I need to maintain my professionalism and answer appropriately, but that is absolutely not going to happen on my end. Thankfully I think we all agree and will respond collectively.
I WAS ABLE TO GIVE BLOOD AFTER WORK!!!!! One of my co-workers who normally gives, had been called to donate because they were in need of type O and she asked if I wanted to go. I was giving myself to the end of the month to see if my hemoglobin increased but I decided to try earlier. Well it went up. Last time I tried it was 11.4, today was 13!!!!! I was shocked. I wonder if it has anything to do with the Vit B12 I am taking now? I just Googled it now and turns out B12 helps in the production of red blood cells which carry oxygen in your blood with the help the protein hemoglobin. So I guess maybe it HAS helped!
After getting home I was exhausted as usual and hopped right into bed.
I slept SO GOOD.
AND…when I weighed myself today…I FINALLY broke that 200 lb mark. I am in the 190s. I am pretty much in shock. I don’t think I’ve seen that number in close to 4 or 5 years.
Dinner was a new recipe which was awesome. Our chicken patties cooked up and sliced on romaine lettuce, garnished with sharp cheddar cheese, red onion, cucumbers, tomatoes and croutons. SO GOOD.
A 1 hour nap after dinner and then my shower.
Only one more day on!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 19)…
~~who among us has not fallen into a downward spiral?
~~who has not known the insatiable hunger of darkness?
~~ahimsa is the practice of listening to the voice of lightness, cultivating that voice, trusting that voice, acting upon that voice
~~lightness has a call that is hard to hear but each time we choose to hear it, the call becomes a little clearer
Things making me happy today: being able to give blood, sleeping good, weighing under 200 lbs finally, yummy new chicken salad meal, mild temps
