What doesn't kill you...

Monday, May 06, 2013

I thought you all might like to know I survived my blood work this weekend – surprise! Haha. Thank you all for your tips and tricks. I was in such a bad spot, mentally, on Friday. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Never known a blood test to kill someone but it would sure be nice if they made me stronger!

Friday night my BF and I went to eat dinner at this little café by our house where you can sit outside. I had a turkey burger, no bread, and a few fries. I was so nervous I couldn’t really bring myself to eat. Saturday we got up and went up to the blood place… or where it used to be. Want to make a needle nervous person freak out even more? Move your location and don’t tell anybody. Turns out the Labcorp moved about two weeks ago and I had to scramble to find the new location. They ended up taking me right back and the lady said I was the first person she’d seen use their new lie-down table haha. I didn’t pass out, I did drop some severe language, but the woman was really funny and nice about it. My arm STILL hurts today (what is that about?!) but I am glad it is over with.

BF got me a skylite snowball afterwards to boost my sugar, and we checked out a flea market. We decided to head down to try out this new craft brewery that opened in the city. Long story short, between recovering from the anxiety/blood and this little beer jaunt, neither one of us felt that great Saturday night. Oops.

Yesterday we did a serious spring cleaning and ran some errands. As we pull back into our parking lot, I see MY OLD CAR. I was like… that’s my car, that my mom just sold, right back where it came from! My mom had sold my old car to a friend of hers that doesn’t even live in our county, who then evidently gave the car to her daughter – who lives IN OUR BUILDING. How weird is that?!?! My BF was like “It missed you so much, it came back to you!” SO CREEPY!!!!!!! I mean, what are the odds?!?!?!?!

Anyways, last night we picked up some crabs and ate them on our deck with some coronas and forgot that it was Sunday for a little while. We just got a little glider for our deck so we just sat out there rocking and talking last night. It was nice.

I got pretty awful quality sleep all weekend, so I am dragging a bit today. I switched up my usual breakfast of chobani and oatmeal and tried rice cakes with a little PB & banana today. It has really kept me full so far, I think it is a winner! I have training through lunch today and I am meeting my sister for dinner tonight. We’re trying to find something healthy out and about, we might meet up at Panera. Point being – today is going to be one of those days where I just try to keep myself in line nutritionally and probably won’t work out. It happens. I think I really need to have this long serious conversation with my sister and if I have to forego a workout for it, so be it.

I also noticed this morning that the farm stand on my way home from work is almost open! I have been waiting for this! I can’t wait to stop off on my way home and get fresh local veggies!

That is where I am today. Now that my blood work is done, I’m sitting here like “Wonder what the results will be!” – my brain is never satisfied?! I am really curious to see where things like my thyroid levels and my cholesterol levels are. Hopefully I will find out this week!

Besides that, I have my lunches & dinners planned out, I am about to mark off gym time on my calendar, and I’m hoping to make this a great week. I hope you do too!

    Well, I'm glad the blood draw portion is over but I will keep you in prayer for the results.
The farmer's market opening near you will be great! How helpful!
What a coincidence that your car found it's way back. I bet that was quite a surprise.

    Great job!
A year ago I saw our car which we sold about 8 years ago... I really miss that car!!! I was screaming "that's our car!!!". My best friend (who was driving) was scared to death from my scream, but fortunately she didn't trigger an accident or something.

I hope you will have a great conversation with your sister!

    OMG, your old car... that is insane. Creepy stalker car, lol!!!

Did you know that Panera has a secret menu? You have to tell the cashier that you'd like to order from the "Hidden Menu"... It's full of lean protein and limited in processed carbs.

Haven't gotten around to looking for the nutritional info for these items yet though.

Best of luck!!!

    That *is* very freaky about your old car, lol.

The mention of "crabs and corona" now has me jones-ing for a warm day at the beach. Sounds really nice!

Glad you survived the bloodletting :)

Have a great week!
