So, this week I want to talk about vitamins. Every morning, I crack open our cupboard and this is what I take:
Let me sort it out for you.
- a pre natal vitamin - I am still nursing baby J. When he stops, this will become a multi-vitamin. When I went to see my first OB-GYN, she asked me what medicines I took. I told her that I didn't take any. She called me on it and told me that EVERY women should at least be taking a multi-vitamin. I have ever since.
- Calcium Chews - because baby J might have a dairy allergy, I have eliminated all dairy from my diet while I am nursing. I take these chews to cover my basis. I have noticed that my nails are much stronger taking these, which is an added bonus.
- Vitamin D - a couple of years ago, I had my hormones checked. I was told I was low in Vitamin D and that I should take supplements. When I don't have these, I am very sluggish - abnormally so.
- Fish Oil - have you read the benefits of fish oil? They contain those great omega 3s. I know we should have more fish in our diet, we just don't get it. So, I take a supplement.
As a reminder, I am not a doctor. I do tell my doctor about the vitamins I take and she approves.
My challenge to you is to take your vitamins EVERY day until the next Fit Friday.
Who is up for the challenge? What vitamins do you regularly take?
