I know this is going to sound like a cop-out but it isn't.
I gave blood today and must eat. Today was complicated by me passing out, twice, and yes - I overate and would do it again if my health requires it.
I have absolutely no idea how many calories I ate today and will just estimate it at 3000 and be done with it. I will enter what I am sure of, and leave out what I cannot log.
It is only one day out of the rest of my life.
I post this only because I do know that there are people that check my logs - I want people to know this can happen and we can overcome any obstacles in our journeys.
Life will go on and it will return to normal tomorrow.
P.S. I am fine. I am relatively certain it wasn't my blood sugar dropping - I think it was my blood pressure which was a bit lower today before giving blood: 116/60 - I don't remember my bottom number ever being below 69.
After leaving the blood bank, I went to pay taxes and I was standing in line and I do have trouble standing for any length of time after donating blood. *sigh* Scared the devil out of my poor Ray.
P.P.S. So I am human - it seemed like a good time to eat that Reeses Peanut Butter Cup and that Butterfingers small bar!
In for a dollar, in for a pound, lol. Tomorrow is another day!
**1/8 - feeling much better and lost .3 lbs, lol.
**1/9 - ok, time to quit eating like a pig, lol. found that .3 and then some!!
