I try to be creative when I make a subject for my post but I never am. I will use the word “sigh”, “blah”, “stuff” or even use each word 3 times. Haha. The other day J and I were in Target anwere was asking me what did I want out of life. Do I plan on working at the store I work at forever? Did I want to get a new job? He thinks I should find something else. But I am content with my job. I don’t like change. I don’t want to make a resume, I don’t want to go on interviews. I don’t want to buy new clothes for interviews or for the job. I am content with my job and my pay and my clothes. But I did tell him that I would love to start making money from blogging. I love blogs. I love writing out my thoughts. I’ve been doing it since 2001. So for over ten years! But I don’t make any money on it. My goal this year though is to try to figure that out. Which is why I created this blog on here. Though I’m not entirely happy with WordPress. It’s not very user friendly.
We’re going to be on vacation soon and I’m hoping that I can work on some projects here in the house. J’s sister just posted a bunch of photos of things she’s made and I miss that. She even is sewing. I never really started sewing even though my mom sews.
I have a lot of things I want to do for the rest of the year. I want to pay off one of my credit cards. I want to… Sigh. I don’t know.
10 is my pain level right now. Which sucks. I am sitting in bed and don’t want to move. I want to write but it hurts. I was laying down and got tired of laying down. My muscles feel like they’re on fire which is not a fun feeling. I can’t even comfortably type on here even though it is definelty easier. Okay I’m done. Bye.
I read this blog: http://blakleygoesblogging.tumblr.com/ and I wanted to comment on the post where she mentioned low iron. I couldn’t so I went to the ask me anything thing. Well there my options were anoymously or log in to tumblr. I don’t have a tumblr. Then tried to say hey I’m not really posting anoymously on purpose, here’s who I am and put in my blog url. Then I typed and it only lets you type so many charecters so I ran out of room and had to go back and edit. I said what I wanted to say and went to post well then it said I can’t post a URL so I had to fix that and I said I’m velvetfrogg on wordpress. TUMBLR IS ANNOYING AS SHIT.
So YEAH. The low iron thing. A simple blood test can check to see if someone has low iron. A person can be anemic or just above it and have low iron. That’s me. I have low iron but not low enough to be anemic. Low iron is really common in women who are still getting their periods since you lose iron in blood. I don’t eat red meat so yeah, low iron. I was always 115-125 pounds then I gained weight and got up to 170 pounds. OMG. But once I went to a doctor and had the blood test I started taking an iron supplement every day and the difference is amazing. I have lost 40 pounds since October 2011.Low iron causes you to be tired and I was always tired. I would wake up tired. I would come home from work exhausted and every day I HAD to take a nap and they were like 3 hour naps. Taking an iron supplement takes about 30 days to see positive results. Eventually I did see results. I stopped being tired and having to take a nap every day. Changed my life! Like seriously, I dealt with being tired for about 10 years or more. I was in high school still when I started taking naps every day and that continued until I was 29. My weight started going down then and I’ve lost 40 pounds or so since then and everyone asks me how I have lost the weight. I don’t have a real answer because I didn’t change my diet or start exercising or anything. But taking the iron increased my energy levels so by being awake more on a daily basis allows my body to burn more calories and I think I kicked my metabolism back into high gear.
But you can overdose on iron so always talk to a doctor before taking an iron supplement and get the blood test done to make sure. A regular multivitamin has about 8mg of iron I think and the one I take has 47.5 mg so yeah, if you just started taking that but didn’t really need that much you could overdose and that isn’t something you want to do. It’s dangerous! But trust me, it’s something worth looking into if you have any of the symptoms.
I talked to my dad on my way home from work today. It was a good phone call. I just commented on one of the nail blogs that I read. She’s in the UK and always mentions shopping at Boots and/or that certain products can be bought there. So I commented just now that I had seen that Sinful Colors are now in Boots stores and asked her if she has been lucky to see any. I also went blah blah blah about the partnership of Boots and Walgreens. I am overly excited about it and what it means. A global pharmacy is an amazing idea. We’re going to be carrying some of the brands made by Boots sometime this year and I’m wondering if they’ll be carrying some of our brands too. I’m also excited about the prospect of everything being connected. So if someone is traveling overseas will they be able to walk into a Boots and have their Walgreens pharmacy records accessed? Or vice versa. Will employees be able to get employee discount at either store and/or website? I’m sure employee discount on the websites will happen first. There are Boots in Canada so I’m sure we’d be connected first. Then I wonder if employees will be able to transfer to a Boots if they wanted to move out of the country. The possibilities with this partnership is amazing to me.
I’m a geek, I know.
He got me a bungalow 360 purse and wallet that I wanted. There’s another wallet I wanted too and I might still buy it just to have two. Lol. Then the books I also picked out. I love both authors and I’ve read almost book Karen White has.
