The Supplements I Take and Why
Since I had time to exercise in the a.m. yesterday, I was able to come straight home after my last client of the afternoon. And I liked what I came home to;)
Grillin’ time! AKA – husband does the cooking time :b
On the grill this time was asparagus, potatoes, burgers for him, and grouper for her.
And while Shane cooked, I read my book:
Shane borrowed my Kindle when he was on business last week, and since I can’t go three hours without reading, I started a real live book!! It’s pretty good. I love me a good thriller every now and then
Dinner was done in no time!
so yesterday morning I took a trip to go see my chiropractor. For a while, I’d been seeing him every other week, but after my hip stopped hurting I stopped going to him. Then after a little morning when I ran a little race called the Illinois Half Marathon, it started talking to me again. Sooo I landed myself back in his office.
My dr. is also a homeopathic doctor and helps me out with basically whatever is ailing me. During yesterday’s appointment, he did his usual routine and then we started talking about about sleep. Basically, I told him I’m tired a lot and have trouble falling asleep 3/4 weeks of the month. Yah, no bueno. He performed some tests and determined that I am definitely not getting enough deep sleep. I’m not really sure how, but he also determined the cause may be that I am lacking in magnesium and handed me a perscription. It got me thinking about all the supplements I take…which really aren’t that many!
Currently, the only supplements I take are from my homeo doctor. I’m not a huge pill popping fan, and only want to supp what I’m deficient in.
Aside from protein powder, these are the supplements I take on a regular basis:
He said in a few days I should be able to tell a difference. I sure hope so! I’ll keep you guys in the loop, too
So that’s all the supps I take! I try to consume as many fruits and veggies as I can, so hopefully I’m getting my nutrients the natural way:)
What’s your stance on taking vitamins/supplements? Which do you take? I’m not against taking them, but I only like to take them if I’m in a deficit of that certain one, ya know?
It is STORMING here. And I’m off to train a client. Eek! I hate driving in storms…wish me luck! Try and have a wonderful, Wednesday, friends!!
