So I'm up 4 lbs. from last week. Doesn't surprise me. I gave blood on Friday so I binged on all the cookies and crackers they have for snacking afterwards so I was off plan for two days in a row. Body fat is down. It bounces around a lot - up to 2 percentage points a month, up or down, but 23% is the lowest reading this year so that is good. Hopefully the trend will continue down overall, even if it bounces up since the scale is not the most accurate method.
Mom called me Thursday night. She and Bill are in town for their yearly visit and wants to meet me for lunch on Saturday after church. Brad can tag along if he pays for his own meal of course. She and Bill wanted to go to Quinn's Lighthouse, but I suggested The New Zealander since it's another good restaurant and they have never been there. I wanted to introduce them to it.
Friday I gave blood and binged on bad carbs - tons of cookies, crackers, and bars. I hate being off plan for two days whenever I give. I asked them about Saturday hours and that might work. They said they are open from 7 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday so I could go before church, or we could leave right after Sabbath School. This would leave me off plan for just my one usual day and be much better overall for my diet. Plus, I think giving blood on Sabbath would be in keeping with the day since Jesus said that it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath (Matthew 12:12).
However, my next available date for giving is Halloween, which is a Friday, and I think it would be very apropos to give blood on Halloween. :)
After giving blood Brad and I hiked the East Ridge Trail for about 2 hours and 20 minutes. I usually feel drained after giving blood, but this time I felt awesome and had plenty of energy. I hope it is the thyroid and/or iron pills kicking in and not some temporary thing.
One other point. When they tested my iron it came up 12.5 on their machine. The guy said that I was right on the border and I asked what the border was. He said 12.5. Boy, was I close! I have been taking my iron pills every day, sometimes doubling up. I think I need to double up and take two every day because I have got to get my iron levels up.
Saturday Eleanor called me at church and said she was leaving for New Zealander. This surprised me because nobody said anything about her coming. I thought it was just supposed to be Mom and Bill, and Brad and I. It put me in a bad mood, but Eleanor hasn't seen me in a long time. You can't tell an older lady no or that you don't want to have lunch with her that day, so I had to acquiesce.
I did well with my meal (bunless lamb burger with a side salad instead of fries), but I caved in for dessert and ordered the chocolate torte. It was a huge cake layered with chocolate mousse and it was divine! It was also totally illegal for me. I have been slipping more and more lately and have got to get a grip! Someone slap me back to reality please!
The restaurant was hot (they did not care for it or the food), but my apartment was hotter so we hung out at the restaurant for a long time, eventually moving out to the cooler patio area. We finally went to my apartment. They haven't seen the new one so I had to show it to them. They were totally unimpressed since it is so small. Eleanor even asked me if I liked the place! They all live in big places and don't understand that a poor single woman with two cats can do quite well in a tiny place.
After that Brad and I showed them the way to the freeway (they followed us), and then we went for a walk around the lake.
This morning Brad drove me to the gym and then walked around the area. I did a full workout (1 hour upper body weight training and 30 minutes running on the treadmill, 2.92 miles). I met Brad back at the car and we drove toward work.
I wanted to walk in to work from the Damon Slough Staging Area and Brad said he would walk a short while with me. I realized that if we just did about 15 or so minutes out and then back, we could do the whole walk together and still get me to work on time. We did about 20 minutes out and 20 back to the car, and then he took me to work. :)
So a very eventful weekend. Next weekend the pastor's daughter is getting married so most people are just going straight to Sacramento for the wedding. Brent said he would do church (with no Sabbath School) an hour and half early for anyone who wanted to come. A few of us will be there. Since church is early and I do not care to go to the wedding, Brad and I are hoping to do the Lake Chabot bike loop that day (about 12.5 miles). We'll need to get to bed early Friday night to be at church by 9 a.m. and have enough energy for our hike.
