Struggled Through

Found today tough, and lacked energy, but got it done. Feels good to be close to the halfway mark, but still lots of work to be done.
I had to drain off a pint of blood yesterday, and I always feel weaker the next day. I have a genetic condition called hemochromatosis which ironically means I have way too much iron in my blood. How funny! Anyway, rather than take nasty medication, I can manage the condition by draining bloody regularly. Should have married a vampyre.
Hope you are tracking well team!

haha ...that IS funny ...I wish I had enough iron lol...I have the exact opposite problem ....have to take iron in high dose for months to get my levels in order.
Draining blood is in MANY ways a good thing ...so good for you :)

    It's crazy! I thought that my blood would be great for people who have low iron, but my doc told me that it doesn't work that way. Shame. So you take iron supplements to get yourself sorted?

      I think the workouts when you are low on energy are the most admirable. #gettingitdone!

        Omg wow! Yes, is totally funny but glad there is a solution : )) Your pic is hilarious. I'm feeling the same about getting to the halfway point, but still a long way to go for me too.

          I’m with Janet. Getting it done is a real demonstration of character. Great work!

                    While not funny it is funny. I hope you know what I mean. The Kenzai IRON King suffers from excess Iron...hmmmmmmmm...I'll be joining in September.

                      "Draining off a pint of blood"...now that's a line you don't read everyday around here. Guess that's what happens when you do Iron like a dozen times in 3 years. Power on to a killer second half Iron Man!!!
