Vitamins For This Later Mom By: Lori Loesch

I started taking vitamins before I got pregnant with my daughter.  A friend of mine from church sold Shaklee Products,  and I started taking Shaklee Vitamins.  It must have worked, because I had a baby at 42 years of age.  My friend joked that, my daughter was such a calm baby, that she was a “Shaklee” baby.   

 I find myself back at the vitamin stage.  I stopped taking them after I had my daughter.  I am very low in vitamin D.  I did a blog about the overcast skies in Central Pennsylvania.  I guess it really matters how much sun we get in a day.  Vitamin D cannot be gotten just from your food source, the sun is a crucial part.  

I’m getting back on the vitamin train.  Multi, D, K, the B’s, and C.  I think I have all of them.  My new doctor said that I shouldn’t take E.  So that’s one less pill to swallow.  I feel like I’m drowning in water, however I do get my daily intake of water, this way.  It’s all good.  

I can’t wait to start my new vitamin routine.  I need to exercise, and start a diet that is lower in fat.  I have high cholesterol, as well. I’m hoping that more exercise, I walk my German Shepherd,…well…I…lolly gag, with my German Shepherd!  Stopping to look at birds, or plants, snakes, or whatever, will give me energy.  I have heard that if you are feeling sluggish, exercise can get you moving.  I think I’m going to dance.  I love it, and music makes me feel good too.  I just hope I can squeeze it into my schedule.
