The past few weeks I have been exhausted all the time. Well, not exhausted really. More like very sleepy. I can get things done but I really just feel like lying down most of the time. Today I slept two extra hours and didn't work out this morning at all (not even a 20 minute workout). Then later on I took an hour nap. I've still been dragging through the day. Black tea is not doing anything. And now at 7:45, I'm more than ready to go to bed.
It's such a puzzle! I had some blood work done on Tuesday. I'm going to call tomorrow to see if the doctor has the results. I've struggled with anemia off and on over the years--even when I was eating red meat. I can't say that I am eating a lot of good sources of iron--a little here and a little there. Not sure if I'm meeting the daily requirement. Maybe I am anemic again. If so, it's back to the Floradix Floravital Iron and Herbs which during my first pregnanacy worked like a charm. It's a huge plus that it tastes good and is non-constipating and (obviously) easily absorbable (i.e. it really works).
