Blood drive failure
Thursday, November 08, 2012
UGh, there was more snow than I anticipated, so it took longer to clear the cars and driveway, so I missed spin class today. Failure #1
I went to give blood today, I even ate breakfast before my 10 am appt.
I tested low on iron, so I couldn't give. Failure #2.
This has happened before, but I always feel like a failure. I have been tested at the Doc. and I am not eneimic, she says this is common in women. I need to eat more red meat and spinach. She says she dosn't think I need a vitamin as she doesn't like to recommend them, that we should be able to get enough nutrients thru food.
But, I have been avoiding red meat, I have been dieting, so I know that i the reason. Last time I was dieting I made sure to eat meat and lots of spinach salads or take a multi vitamin w/ iron. Problem is that I forgot about the blood drive this time. and didn't prepare.
Bummer. I always feel like I've done something terrific when I donate.
Oh well, next time they come to the office I will be READY!!
Have a great day everyone! I know I plan on NO MORE Failures for the rest of the Day!
