Ignore blank cells when using loop to insert formulas

I'm trying to parse the date and time out of a date-time field.  I know how to loop through my data using VBA to insert a formula in a new column. I want to make sure the loop ignores cells that are blank. Otherwise I end up with date 1/1/1900 where there should be nothing.

Sub GetTotal()
Dim lstrow As Integer
Dim i As Integer

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

        lstrow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row

        Range("X3:X" & lstrow).FormulaR1C1 = "=INT(RC[-1])"

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

How about modifying the formula to "ignore" blanks....

    Range("X3:X" & lstrow).FormulaR1C1 = "=IF(RC[-1]="""", """", INT(RC[-1]))"
