I Have More Energy!

Since I found out I have Vitamin B-12 Deficiency Anemia a few weeks ago, I have made several changes and I can already see a big change in my energy level. I now see how much of a fog I was walking around in!

First, I started taking a B-12 supplement. I was told to get 1000 mcg and take one a day. I found one at Target that said it was "timed-release" so I got that one.

Also, I've been drinking a glass of Cranergy every day, usually after lunch when I would typically get the I-need-to-go-get-in-bed-now feeling. This stuff tastes great, is low in calories (35 calories for 8 ounces), and I truly feel like it helps my energy level.

Do you have things you do for extra energy? And Angry Julie, I already know about your love of Monster drinks!

Disclosure: I purchased these items with my own hard-earned cashola. Ocean Spray has no idea who Sasha is.

Pin It!

I'm glad you found something that is giving you more energy. I'm going to try those.

Last summer I started taking B12 injections once a week or so from a Dr. and they work wonders! Amazing how quickly I felt better. Good for you!

Katy said...

did they do bloodwork to find this out? I know i am anemic for sure. I need to try this drink! thanks sasha!

Katy- I am sure you can drink the juice, but not sure about the B12. I'd ask your doc.

Kathy- yes, bloodwork to check for anemia and B12 deficiency. I also had thyroid bloodwork, but that was normal.

I love the shout out for my addiction. Seriously, I quit drinking Monsters yesterday. They make my crave sugar and that has been horrible for my waistline lately.
