My time online has waned, and in all honesty, my time doing most things has waned. I'm absolutely and completely wiped out. Why? In my mind, no good reason! I'm most likely anemic, seeing as it's historically been a problem, but MAN-O-MAN is it hitting me harder than ever!

I feel a bit cheated, as my diet almost always has good iron-packed things in it. Mind you, it often has the rubbishy things as well, but I'm a bean queen, pretty good about my greens, and now I'm even on a natural iron supplement. I guess I just feel like venting, seeing as I know plenty of people who live off coffee, sugar, and hydrogenated fat and they're full of energy!

Okay, my rant's over. Given that I've been so sluggish, I'm not exercising nearly as much as I would like, and my diet, well...it's improving. I know exercise generally recharges me, but these days, it only seems to wipe me out all the more. I've cut out caffeine and am really trying to eat foods with a reasonable glycemic load so my blood sugar stays pretty stable. I'm seeing my homeopath on Friday, so hopefully that will help sort things out.

I hope others out there are doing well and meeting their goals. Mine are on hold at the moment, but I know once I'm well again, I'll meet them. I suppose new goals have taken over, those being above all things, to have a bit of respect for my body. It's definitely not a bad goal -- it's just not quite as weight-focused...we'll see how things go.

    Good, maybe your homeopath has some other ideas for your anemia. It seems strange that after all the steps you take to ensure you're getting your iron, that you're still having problems. I'm very sorry to hear about your tough break. Sometimes it's just so much easier to focus on one thing at a time instead of the whole package, and with your stress level for the time being, I'd recommend it. You've done so great thus far, you're not going to let a little thing like this stand in your way. I'm proud of you, girlie! XOXO - Liz
