 Finished #11 - Find out my blood type October 7, 2012

Since I wanted to follow the blood type diet for another one of my goals, I of course, needed to learn my blood type. I'd been wanting to find out what it was forever anyway, mostly because of the way the Japanese believe that blood type is a factor in a person's personality. So my girlfriend and I bought the blood type test at Vitamin Cottage and did it together.

My girlfriend did the finger stick for me, and it was probably the least painful finger stick I've ever had! XD So we did our tests and I came up A-. I knew I'd be either A or B because my mom is O and my dad is AB. I didn't really expect to be A, lol but it's pretty cool that I know now, and it explains a few things.

According to 'Live Right 4 your Type,' type As have a higher basal level of the stress hormone Cortisol, which makes them more prone to stress. About a year ago, I was trying to do Jillian Michaels' workout programs, which are very intense, and while an already healthy A can do more strenuous exercises like what Jillian has you do, I'm really not that fit, and her workouts were just too stressful. Type As should do things like yoga and Tai'chi, both of which I've been wanting to take classes for.

So yeah, I've been unduly excited about finding out my blood type, but according to the blood type diet, I should avoid quite a few foods that I really like, like eel and squid D: Not that I eat a lot of eel and squid, but blood type As are supposed to be largely vegetarian.

Well, now that I know my type, it's time to work on following the blood type diet!
