I'm getting smarter...

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Ok...so I'm getting smarter by the day. Being anemic...I know when my count is low, that I get lethargic, tired, sleepy.

For the past week or so, I've actually been taking my iron pills on a regular basis. Imagine my surprise when I realize today that I actually have energy...that I could actually see myself going to the gym and not giving out after 5 minutes.

Then I realize 'Ding Ding Ding'...how about if you take your supplements the way you're SUPPOSE to...you won't sabotage yourself so much.

Here is a tiny portion of the journey that doesn't take a lot of effort or time to do...so that removes my excuses. Why not do it??

I will...why...because I'm getting smarter every day. The obvious stuff...that wasn't so obvious...is becoming obvious and bottom line, I'm going to incorporate it.

The thing is, this is pretty big to me. I absolutely hate taking pills...and I praise God for good health and I say all the time...I refuse to ever get to a place where I will need to take them every day. I've testified over and over about how much God had kept me, even with my weight being what it is. As much as I thank Him for it, I also know HE put the urgency in my spirit to lose weight to maintain this good health.

So I say over and over and over...I won't ever get to a place where I will need to take medicine every day. But guess what...did you read the part where I said I was anemic? Yep, I'm anemic...I don't exhibit any of the classic symptoms...except that sometimes, I get to the lethargic place. But it occurred to me today. I'm ALREADY THERE. I have to take medicine every day...and its for my good. When my iron count is what its supposed to be...I'm energetic..so why wouldn't I take my iron pills everyday? Because I wasn't as smart yesterday as I am today.

I'm looking forward to the ramifications of actually taking this medicine everyday...what will life be like when my energy level is constant...and increases... What will life with an increased energy level look like when I'm able to exercise more, easier...

I'm smarter today than I was yesterday...

Thank you God for wisdom!

    I am anemic too. I stopped taking the iron pills about 6 months ago - big mistake. I was sooo tired and out of it. Went to doc to see what was going on - didn't think it was from the iron - duh... :) anyway, all the iron related vitals were super low so back on the iron AGAIN. blicky... Anyway, like you I noticed I am not struggling to stay awake at work and I can work out at lunch and not drag through it.

    Anyway, you are lucky anemia is your only issue. There are so many people who are dependent on different med for this or that.
