You’d think that living in South Florida…the Sunshine State that I’d get enough Vitamin D, but on my last visit to the doctor, my blood work showed a Vitamin D deficiency. She explained to me that as we age, our bodies have a more difficult time absorbing the natural sunshine, plus we all use SPF sunblock to protect our skin from the damage caused by the sun. She suggested that both Mr. S and I begin taking a regular daily dose of Vitamin D.
I was happy that the doctor’s orders were over the counter and easily purchased at my neighborhood WalMart. I could pick up some Nature Made supplements when I did my regular shopping. I knew that I’d been neglecting taking care of myself. I can’t tell you the last time I did REGULAR exercise, and my eating habits have become atrocious. I needed to be pushed back in the right direction, and beginning with taking a much needed dose Vitamin D3 would be the first step.
As promised, my local WalMart offered an entire aisle of supplements that ranged from the basic letters of the alphabet, to supplements that I’d never heard of before. Thankfully, they were displayed in alphabetical order, making finding Vitamin D simple. I picked up a bottle, along with a few others. and finished my regular shopping. I love being able to buy everything from Magnesium (the nurse practitioner had put me on this last year), to a t-shirt, and the makings of a great salad all in one store. Plus, I never have to wait for a sale like at those over priced vitamin stores, since I can count on WalMart to have everyday low prices on Nature Made.
Once home, I decided that my New Year’s resolution needed a resurrection. I headed directly to the the Nature Made Daily Boost program for a dose of “Vitamin do.” It’s time. At 62 years old, I want to make sure that I stay as healthy as I can. I know that if I change one habit at a time, that I have a better chance at success. My goals are to…
- Take my supplements
- Lose 30 lbs
- Walk 30 minutes a day
- Do water aerobics in my pool on warm days (it’s not heated)
- Make healthier food choices
