Black Friday + Me = Hospital?

November 27, 2011

First of all, sorry I have been away for so many days! As I am sure you can tell from the title, I had some issues this past friday! Crazy, right? I am pretty healthy so I have no idea how this happened.

I don’t usually do Black Friday. I don’t think the deals are that great and I like finding unique gifts for family and friends. So it was weird for me waking on Friday morning to go to Joann’s. They had a great deal on fabric and I was very excited!

I was fine, I got my bolts, waited, looked at other products, waited some more. I finally decided to just do the ‘express lane.’ Well I was waiting in the ‘express lane’ for about 40 minutes, when I got warm. So I took off my coat no big deal. I rolled up my sleeves and continued waiting. I still felt warm so I thought, “maybe I should go to the bathroom.” I thought I was going to vomit. But I didn’t want to give up 40 minutes of waiting so I just put my head on my cart and took a deep breathe.

The next thing I know, my head is in someone’s lap and there are people all around me. I fainted. I have never fainted. It was so weird. I don’t remember how it happened, or even if I hit my head (although I am pretty sure I do, because I have a headache).

They got me into a wheelchair, and I called Breon. He was on his way when in the wheelchair I felt warm and clammy again. I also needed to use the restroom. When she tried to help me up to get to a stall, I took 5 steps before my vision when fuzzy and almost fainted again. They finally got me into a stall and after I went they called the ambulance.

They took me to Regions and everything looked fine. I guess I was just dehydrated which didn’t surprise me after taking a look at my lack of water consumption through the past two days.

But now I keep feeling like it could happen again. And I want this headache to go away. I don’t think I have a concussion because the doctor would have said something to that extent and he didn’t.

As for yesterday and today, I am laying low. I am going to try and get some work done when the headache subsides.

Did you have fun on Black Friday?

Life is separated in moments that you remember and those that are easily forgotten. This past weekend in DC, was one of those life experiences that I will never forget. I got to spend time with 12 amazing individuals as well as 750+ inspirational franchisees from Anytime Fitness. Inspiration spewed everywhere from the conference with 4 success stories, 17 awards, 100 runningman tattoos, and innumerable moments to last a lifetime!

The conference was a blast! If I went into everything I did this post would go on for days. So instead here is a mini recap in pictures!

The first and second Anytime Health tattoos were shown off at this conference and I was super excited to see it happen! It shows that the brand that I work on everyday means something, something big. I love that.

I did some major walking through DC, getting lost was fun but cold, as it was raining. I had a blast shooting while walking though because as you can see Georgetown is full of amazing homes and history. I love that area. I wish I had an extra $3,000,000 to buy the home that I walked through!

Your constant inspiration and motivating words keep our site fresh and interesting! You all are amazing, truly and simply amazing. Your voice sings louder than you might think!

I laugh… a lot [maybe a bit too much some times]. A friend used to call me “little miss giggles” because when I would laugh at something I found extremely funny, it [the laughing] could go on for 30+ seconds. Now, just think, 30 seconds is a long time to remain laughing. But it is one of my favorite things. I love life and I love to laugh. I hope we can laugh together on my journey down the road of blogging.

I will be covering a plethora of topics ranging from photography, blogging, fashion, and travel. All-in-all it should be an awesome ride.

A little background on me.

I live in St. Paul, Minnesota. I love Minnesota. It’s not that bad people, I promise. In fact, Chris Hardwick said that we have an amazing cultural atmosphere here. [Sweet, right?] I work for Anytime Fitness. I am a communications and design specialist, with a photographer title mixed in there. I manage the blog at Anytime Health– and I love it. Health has become a huge part in my life ever since starting at Anytime Fitness about a year ago. The culture at the office is unmatched. I love being entertained, whether that is music, movies, comedy shows, or whatever. I love my boyfriend, Breon. He is the bestest [I am sure you’ll get to know him].
