Guess I was feeling a bit mentally drained from recent life events.
On Thursday I was invited to a special beauty event held at a wellness clinic (called a wellness boutique – not really a boutique as we know it) in Yaletown. I’ll tell you more about the evening later. An allopathic practitioner administered my very first B12 injection. I’ve always hated needles but at least it was quick. It was a dosage of 1000 mcg by Hydroxocobalamin form which is the preferred form to use because its effects are long lasting and it does not contain the cyanide component of Cyanocobalamin (which I had no idea about). This is the required dosage per month which is given intramuscularly. The rationale being that B12 is stored in the liver allowing for potential overdose. Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin. There is a very low incidence of B12 toxicity even with large amounts up to 1000mcg daily.
So the very next day which was yesterday, I had energy to spare from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm non-stop. Of course my day didn’t end at 7:00pm but I got to relax after that. It began with yoga, then a run, cleaned the house
strenuous physical exercise by itself made a pie, planted geraniums, packaged up some skincare products, shopped for groceries and gave the dog his usual 3 walks before putting together some munchies for my visitors.
