Want to lose a pound in five minutes? Give blood!

View the top 10 reasons to give blood and the top 10 excuses people use to not give.

When they did the finger stick to check my iron level I came out at around 50%! Wow. I ate spinach salads all week. I am sure that is why it was so much higher than usual. Last time I was around 41 or 42%. My blood pressure was low - 99/59. That's only the second time I've seen both numbers below 100. The other time was when I took a blood pressure test at WalMart. Last time I gave blood my blood pressure was 122/66.

Here's the photos from my blood donation Friday. Click any photo to enlarge.

I broke 2 million steps yesterday! Go me! I started tracking August 22. Not too shabby. Scroll down the link to the "Million Steps +" area and then look for "Newbirth."

Filming for Prince Caspian, the second of the Narnia movies to be released, is underway in New Zealand! I guess this means I need to re-read the book post haste!

Congratulations on your achievment. 2,000,000 steps! You are now going on to the next 2,000,000 +. No wonder our feet sometimes complain!!=-( Time to give your feet a reward. How many millions of steps have they supported you in? =-)

Maybe you should get them a Valentine card and give 'em a day off.=-D Put your feet up and watch CSI marathon.

They have you sit up when you donate? Every blood drive I've ever been to (and I've been to a lot; when I was in college, and I was in a no-donate window due to my tattoos, I used to volunteer at a quarterly blood drive) has people lying down when they donate.

Yep, all donations are given semi-sitting (they do let you recline a bit). Probably why I get lightheaded frequently. I have low blood pressure to start with and the donation makes it drop even more.

If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

The best food for good health to maintain the system of your body I really engaged for.
