Blood taken & I remained conscious. Big accomplishment over here!
My husband insisted we a donuts as a celebratory treat (and the nurse suggested I eat something with sugar and carbs) and I didn’t object.
Obviously, these are NOT on my eating plan. The blood work was for my nutritionist, so I justified the trade off. Getting blood drawn…big step forward. Gluten Free Hummingbird Donut, tiny step backwards. Balance, right?
Getting my blood drawn also required two rest days to get the most accurate readings, so I had a good excuse to be a lazy blob (see outfit in first photo for evidence). Starting tomorrow, it’s back on the grind. Apparently these marathons don’t run themselves.
Chicago People: This Friday, March 1st, Barre Bee Fit is doing a 21-day Spring It On Challenge based on creating a healthy addition or habit in your life AND attending 18 classes in 21 days. The classes are awesome (I highly recommend the Bardio and Barre Brawl) and the social aspect of the challenge is a great way to get support, and connect with others with similar goals.
Have you ever fainted in public? Tell me your story and make me feel better about myself.
Healthy habit you have recently attempted or successfully incorporated into your life? I have incorporated a simple gratitude exercise into my morning routine. It started when I was reading The Magic, and I have continued now that I have finished the book. It has made such a huge difference in my life, and ensures my day starts out on the right foot.
