I’ve been searching for a new tagline for my blog for the past month or so, and nothing sounded good to me. I searched for something that embodied who I am and all the things that I love to do. But I like a lot of different things, so choosing a tagline was a little difficult.
Then It Happened
Over a month ago, I went to my annual Doctors appointment and did all the necessary blood work. I knew that when I received my results, it would have some bull on it. I was looking forward to my appointment because I was beyond anxious for my doctor to tell me what was wrong with me. Lately, I’ve been feeling tired, and I have to drag myself out of bed. Once I’m up, I stare at the wall for what seems like 4 hours, and then finally, I break my daze. I stumble down the stairs to make a strong cup of coffee, pop my vitamins, drink 20 ounces of water, and fight my way through the day.
Which consist of highs, and LOWS!
So a couple days after my appointment, I received a call from my doctor, and she told me I’m anemic. She sent me my chart with all my blood levels (they ran what looked like a thousand tests). I could have fallen over backward when I saw my Hemoglobin level. In fact, I did fall over, right in my bed, and laid there trying to figure out what the heck I’m doing wrong. I eat clean, workout every day, and I get good rest. I could afford to go to bed a little earlier, but geesh, WHAT THE HECK!
I’ve Reached That Point In My Life.
I mean, have I really come to the point in my life where I need medication or a little boost to help me get along with my day. I can’t just wake up and pop my vitamins like I use to and bounce on my way.
This use to be me!
Nope! I now have to make sure I’m eating enough greens, raspberries, blackberries, a bunch of other stuff and pop my meds.
I’m feeling a lot better these days. Even though it does hurt a little, that I can’t make it through 2 Insanity workouts back to back like I used to. Just the thought of 2 hours’ worth of jumping makes me want to punch someone.
But here’s the real upside!
I found my new tagline. Yep, you guessed it, Stumbling through my 40’s. Because I am literally doing just that. I’ve been through more changes than you can imagine. And every day, I wake up with a new pain or new realization about different foods I can no longer eat.
I could go on and on…and I will in my future posts. No, they won’t all be about my aging body, but I will share plenty.
So you have two choices.
- Stay and lend me your wisdom or share great laughs, which I hope you do
2. Get off this bumpy ride now
Because you are about to stumble through my 40’s with me!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
