Committing to good health on National Vitamin Day


After our move to Georgia, I put my health on the backburner. I was too busy trying to keep up with the day-to-day efforts of adjusting to a new place, from unpacking to signing up the kids for school. Then this fall, I had rotator cuff surgery and struggled just to keep up with work, chores around the house, and trips to the physical therapist. Followed by a busy holiday season and getting our new dog, Nellie, I let even more stuff healthy related stuff slide. That’s why when New Year’s resolution time came around, one of my top five things to do for my health was to start taking vitamins again.

I’ve been taking vitamin supplements since I was a child. My dad was a big believer in supplements, and so am I. And now that I’ve been taking my supplements again, I feel more energetic and ready to take on the stresses of the day – and my “wagon ain’t dragging” at the end of the day. I also feel that’s why my household is faring a lot better than other families when it comes to colds and flu because taking vitamins helps keep us healthy and strengthens our immune systems.

Take the healthy pledge!

Since today’s National Vitamin Day, how about joining me in taking a healthy pledge for 2013 and committing to taking a supplement ? Now I know you’re probably saying that taking vitamins are such a pain. I know they are, since I take so many and some are HUGE and hard to swallow. I often have to drink two large glasses of water just to get them all down.
