WHY I TAKE VITAMINS .............MAKING ME A BETTER ME...........



Ok here I am a few years ago..... ....and as you can see I was a bit green around the gills.   I have always been "pretty healthy" but ............life was interupting.........


NATURE MADE HELPING ME TO BE A BETTER ME




   This is my family a few years ago.......... yep.... you can see they are such great little  "bundles of joy." They bring such calmness to my life especially at Christmas as you can tell........ they were probably singing "silent night" or something close when this was taken.......ah ...... the bliss.............  



   This is me dealing with my eldest bundle of joy on a typical visit to my house.  I don't often have to defend myself but when I do ......... you see I have to get my equalizer out.......... My paddle and my .................NATURE MADE VITAMINS......... 



 

NATURE MADE VITAMINS........I have an arsenal of them.  I am one of the fortunate ones I don't have to take an prescription medicines or over the counter medicines like most of my friends do that are my age.   I attribute this to our family genes (look at the picture again and you will scratch your head and question that statement I am sure) and also my taking some NATURE MADE VITAMINS.  







This is me with my "boys" recently ......as you can see there is no paddle in sight..... just a smile and a BETTER ME..... but my boys...well, as you can tell , I am dealing with a new generation of "bundles of joy." 

Staying healthy and away from the doctors office is a top priority in my life.  I want to eat well and keep my body healthy and free of medications as much as possible.  I feel that my chances of living longer, staying calmer and happier in my life are increased by doing so.   It has to be helping..... I know it is as a matter of fact!
I took a test (cholesterol) at the doctors office a while back and my scores were over 200........ I didn't want to start any medications if I didn't have to , so I cleaned up what I was eating (a bit) increased my water and started taking CHOLESTOFF by Nature Made.  I took another test a few weeks later and my scores were dropped by 25 points ...... and my doctor said "keep doing what you are doing and you can increase the Cholestoff if you like."  I wasn't even taking the recommended dosage and got a better reading!  

I want to save money and get quality products for less (everyone knows I am the FRUGAL freelancer.......LoL and not only does NatureMade offer coupons  
they also put their products on sale and also offer a rewards program too........ not to mention when they have new products they sometimes offer free samples too!  Saving money by avoiding the doctors office is great, saving money on my vitamins is even better........having more money
As a matter-of-fact this week at CVS they are BOGO this week (thru the 24th) and if you buy $20 you earn $5 in ECB TOO!



I want to stay healthy, have more money in my pocket and face my bundles of joy more calmly.... this all makes me be a better me......after all I do have lots I would be missing out on if I didn't!........ THANKS NATURE MADE! :)

Great blog! I'm not one for taking medicines, but I have decided as a New Year's Resolution for 2012 to start taking a daily vitamin. I need to find smaller ones though, or liquid, because I have trouble swallowing pills.

Vitamins are important, but why only take vit D in the winter. Most of us have shortages year round. If you wear sunscreen, you probably do not get enough D.

I also like Nature Made vitamins!
