are never good.
i didn't post yesterday because I was tired.
I am feeling better...but it's on and off.
Like today at the gym...I could feel my hands warming up, cooling down..my body is getting there but it is just so D@mn slow about it...(maybe 4 days isn't really slow...but i suck at being sick)
I would start sweating and then feel dizzy and then feel better.
I was still having some heart palps...but really infrequent...
So....I have been to the gym, but light duty workouts. And am keeping my calorie levels at maintenance and am trying to eat as many heme and non heme forms of iron as I can while ingesting iron pills Not tons...just one at 150 percent of normal intake, and regular vitamins and fish oil and water.
blah blah blah.
my exercise streak is still intact.
Talked to my mom yesterday and she said 'YEAH, you always had that problem..."
ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU WOULD GET PICKY WITH YOUR FOOD.
Do you know how HARD it is to eat enough iron just through food.
unless I eat clams..and I don't like clams, or liver.
clams have a crap ton of iron in them...fyi
cream of wheat is my second best choice....
I hate cream of wheat cause I ate it all the time when I was little.
Now I know why.
It was because of my iron problem.
My iron problem it turns out...has probably been a problem for a while.
cold hands being one of the first signs and my hands started getting cold about a month ago...I mean freezing while I was walking indoors.
And having taken these iron pills, the fog in my brain (that I assumed was stress) is starting to clear.
I think I ought to just take some form of iron pill as a daily supplement.
I don't want to get this far 'behind' again.
It's really nasty.
Will have better updates hopefully by Sunday...I will be back on track again.
Life lesson folks.
Don't screw around with your health.
It will put you further behind in the long run.
