I’ve always on and off taken my vitamins. Usually, I start to take them either right before or after a Doctors visit. This way I am not lying when I tell my doctor that I am or plan to take my vitamins. Yes, I know I am no spring chicken. I am reminded by that daily when I see my Freshman in High School’s friends and I know that they are kids. I think it’s worse when I see “kids” that are in College and I think of them as kids. When did I get to be sooo old. But as Old people often do, I digress. Back to the topic at hand.
My vitamins ran out. I usually just take a one stop shopping women’s multivitamin with Iron. I couldn’t find my normal one and ran across a box that caught my eye.
So I bought it.
Figured why not?
I’m old and could use the extra vitaminss. They are huge! I’ve got a months supply, so I guess I will have to do what I have to do. Besides the size of the pills, I will say that the packets are something that you could easily put together if you were so inclined. It includes: 2 multivitamin & mineral pills, 1 “bone support” pill, 1 “Energy Formula” which is a combo of B12 & a proprietary blend of roots and extract, and lastly the super huge “Super Omega-3” which causes me to have an after taste of Fish. Don’t think I will be able to take that Omega-3 for the month. GROSS! Who wants to be tasting fish all day? I have taken Fish Oil pills before and the good ones do not leave an aftertaste. (just saying). I actually have some good Fish oil pills in the cabinet that I may substitute for this one.
So since I’m cheap and paid for these vitamins, I will take them or most of them.
Yes, I know they are good for me.
Yes, I know that I am getting older
Blah, Blah, Blah.
All that being said, when the month is over I will go back to my normal one stop shopping vitamin. Maybe continue with the Fish Oil that doesn’t taste like fish and add a yummy calcium chew in the mix.
That should help this old Mama’s bones from getting brittle:)
