Day 58/365 Blood Donation
I gave blood today. I have always enjoyed doing it. Such an easy way to bless another life. Today I hit the two gallon mark. 16 people have received my blood throughout the years. It would have been a whole bunch more but you can't donate while pregnant and it's a good thing to avoid while your nursing so you don't mess with your fluids. After spending the last decade doing both, I haven't been a regular at the blood bank.
If you have never given blood, I encourage you to give it a try. They are so good to you at a blood bank and it's painless. Today, I didn't even feel a poke, she was that good. Did you know it takes less than 10 minutes to squeeze out a quart when you are hydrated? (Be sure to drink a BIG glass of water a couple of hours before you go in.) If I could do this weekly, I would.
What I did today:
Elliptical Trainer 15 min. @ level 15
