Celebrate the 4th

Friday, July 04, 2014

Is anyone else sick of being told how we should or should NOT celebrate our freedom?

Of course not to interfere with anyone else's freedom ...... but celebrate your way!

Good deed done

I almost never get to donate blood as I am always in the midst of training for something and it tends to knock me down a little.....but since I am on the injured reserve list right now, I did!

Not my favorite thing to do but I am glad did it! Pretty proud of myself!

    Thanks for donating, it's a great way to give back (literally) and can help so many people. Plus you get cookies!

    Good for you!

I find that donating blood tends to disrupt my schedule, and I have to be careful to hydrate adequately pre-donation; but donating is important, so I do. I'm glad you do, too. There are many people who can't donate blood. You and I need to donate for those who can't.

    I hear you. After each of the surgeries of last year, my exercise options were limited.

Although nothing was a replacement (for me) of good cardio, walking, and weights, I was able to find some activities that helped. These included static abs, arm bike, isometrics for the arms, and even VERY SLOW walking. For me besides the more obvious effects, exercise serves as a vehicle for meditation, and relaxation.

Best wishes,
