Feelin' Better

So who knew what a little iron sulfate twice a day could do for a gal?

Monday, headache gone, I hit the gym at lunch and actually RAN for a little bit. Turns out the shortness of breath was part of the iron issue.

I am a much happier girl!

So... 1 out of 5 women is anemic. If you have frontal heacaches, exhaustion, irratiblity, shortness of breath... talk to your doctor!

I am now motivated to get back to working out, to general be a happier woman, and to not go to bed at 8pm.

let me know how things are working in a week....I hope it doesn't make you consitpated. Just thinking about it is causing my colon to come to a complete stop!

YEAH for running at the gym!

Well, that's good news!

I'm pretty sure I'm anemic. Is Iron Sulfate sold over the counter or did you get a script? I've always been slightly anemic but I think it's gotten worse.

Yeah Iron! I wish that would cure me :)

I'm glad you got to feeling better.

BUt you know what a little iron sulfate does for me? Metallic burps. ALL DAY. My husband keeps asking if I'm taking my iron.

I nod. And he asks why I've had the same bottle for 2 years now...

and putting it in the freezer DOES NOT help.

I think I've learned more about iron then I really needed to prior to 9 AM. Feeling good about eating steak for dinner last night and thinking maybe we should have it again!
