Tomorrow is plasma day!

So, these three have been with me ever since early Saturday morning.

Tomorrow I’m booked in (again) to give plasma at the mobile Red Cross van. The last time I went to donate, my veins decided to play hide and seek, probably because I hadn’t drunk enough water.

So this weekend I’ve been really diligent. While I didn’t measure exactly how much I drank, I just made sure the bottles were being refilled and emptied by me the whole weekend. I’m hoping it’s enough.

Unfortunately I had super busy week and often, in addition to sleep, the first thing ‘to go’ is my water consumption. I’m so bad at drinking water sometimes particularly when it’s a bit cooler.

I’m not completely convinced that my weekend water binge will be sufficient to make up for a shocking week, but I’ll keep you posted.

But then once I got back to work, I was STILL logging in. I could feel myself getting out of control. Continue reading “Logging off … an update”

Fat Girl Swimming …

First swim of the year down at Cudgeon Creek this afternoon. And despite a little sunburn (what was I thinking not putting on sunscreen!?!?!?), I continue to be amazed at just how I’ve learned to give-n0-fcks about going into the water. Continue reading “Fat Girl Swimming …”
