Day 26 & an explanation

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Today is day 26 of my diet. I went to the doctor last night for my monthly weigh in and visit. I've lost 14 lbs. My blood pressure at the last visit was slightly high. It is now back in the normal range.

I also got the results of the blood work they did on my last visit. Everything checked out fine with the exception of my iron count. Turns out I am slightly anemic. It explains why I feel so tired all the time.

My tiredness matched with my new found energy levels makes for interesting times. If I give in to the tiredness then I just kind of collapse around 8:00 each night. If I don't give in and I keep moving I will be up till 1:00 a.m. cleaning.

While I would prefer some kind of middle ground on my energy I sure wouldn't mind keeping the energy bursts a few times a week. But, this tiredness has got to go.

I'm off to celebrate my weight loss with a new outfit. Luckily online shopping doesn't take too much energy :)
