Today is going to be a busy day at work. In fact I might be there for up to 11 hours. On the schedule for today is the Blood Drive (tomorrow as well) and the annual Student Life Crawfish Boil (our biggest event). The crawfish boil is a labor intensive event and will probably last for around 5 to 6 hours total for those working it. The blood drive is typically held Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm, however changes were made earlier this year for this semester.

I still find it odd that I am the chair person at school for the blood drive. I am the rec sports and wellness coordinator. The blood drive is a community event. I do not do much community outreach as we have a department on campus specifically for that. Also, I can see where wellness and blood drive might fit together, however, I do not see much participation or help out of other departments on campus where the blood drive would make sense to collaborate with.

I sound like I am complaining, but we have different departments on campus for a reason. I do not mind helping out and working together. Most of the time though the other departments want to use the gym, in which we provide most of the labor to help setup and are responsible for cleaning up afterwards (unless it is a major school event). Either that or people just want free advice, programs, and help with regards to exercise and nutrition from me.

Getting back to the day, sorry for my rant there; like I said it will be busy. Not to mention I did not sleep all that well and woke up sweating a few times. My workout this morning was tough and surprise I sweated a ton more. All this in the face of working most of the day outside laboring away at the crawfish boil. I will certainly have to replace all the fluids I lost already and will lose throughout the day. My eating schedule is going to be way off today which does not make me too happy, something all the fitness folks out there understand.
