I’ve been dying a slow and painful death over the last few weeks.
I’ve had no energy, I’ve been constantly yawning and basic movements have just been beyond me!
Eventually a light bulb clicked on above my head and I had a major Duh! moment.
Sure it’s only the one thing that ALWAYS causes me to feel like crap -why would I have thought of it!
So off I went to get my usual bottle of iron juice and kick this anaemia thing in the ass after work yesterday.
I found myself in an aisle surrounded by prettily-coloured bottles, all of which were telling me I needed them to live.
I’m a sucker for fads.
I get swept up in a whirlwind of I MUST HAVE THIS and due to my need to throw myself whole-heartedly into every project I undertake, I always go overboard.
Yesterday’s project was Make Hermia Healthy.
Improve your immune system?
You don’t have to ask me twice!
Well my knees have felt a little creaky recently…
Improve you nervous system?
Well I don’t know if I….no wait…what if it happens because I don’t have these!!!!
I was a little enthusiastic…
But I didn’t want to be one of those people that lives on supplements, so off I went to Tesco to build up a nice fruit collection.
Getting up early to make breakfast smoothies seemed like a GREAT idea…last night.
So up I got ten minutes earlier than usual this morning (how precious are mere minutes at that time of day?) and I grumpily trudged to the kitchen to make myself and The Boy smoothies.
I even bought him a little flask so I could just throw him the smoothie mix as he was running out the door.
Out came the smoothie-blender-machine.
Hmmmm what’s that stain?
And that stain?
And that weird black thing?
Turns out The Boy is the WORST dish-washer in the WORLD and had left dried smoothie stuck to random parts of the mixer jug, which had subsequently started breeding mould farms.
And so I spent 15mins cleaning it.
Making me late from work.
Eventually – and not without lots of shouting and WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!!!??? thrown The Boy’s way – the lovely healthy smoothies were made.
And so began my breakfast…
10ml of Iron Juice ….to boost my red blood cell count and un-zombify me
1 Vitamin C tablet ….to boost my immune system
2 Evening Primrose Tablets ….to make me less crazy and hormonal
1 B-Vitamins tablet ….something to do with the nervous system….and skin….and cell making….or something
1 Cod Liver Oil tablet….oil the joints and make skin/hair/nails not crap
1 Ginseng tablet….energy production/making/creation
1 glass of smoothie….contains yoghurt, honey, apple juice, strawberries, raspberries, red currants, blackberries, banana
As you can see, I’m taking a lot of tablets and they may all react terribly with each other and kill me or even give me leprosy, but I feel very smug right now about my health kick, so I’ll take the chance!
I’m making my body invincible!!!
This will probably be abandoned by Sunday….
