vitamin d, iron and calcium, oh my!!

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Iron, and vitamin d and calcium. oh yea, and fiber too. No matter what I do, I cannot seem to get them, thru food, up to the numbers I need daily.
I am trying, I keep tweeking the foods and trying to put together a diet high in these nutrients and yet, staying under my calories and fat.
I fight a losing battle almost daily.
I am taking an iron tablet, a womens one a day, a fiber tablet, and of course still taking upwards of 5,000iu of vitamin d a day.
I will keep on trying.
Have not walked in the last two days and am pretty angry with myself over it, but mostly angry with the weather.
Some things are just out of our control.
Good thing I learned that lesson and dont beat myself up too bad these days.
So, hoping to see the numbers reflected on the scale this week, in a good way.
Just trudging along.
I set a very specific goal for September, for my birthday and I am quite a ways off.
I know I have time to work harder and maybe i wont reach that goal right on the dot, but if I can get within 5 lbs of that I will be feeling pretty good.

    I follow Dr. Mercola on his web site and he is big on VITAMIN D. I take two Flinstone chewables daily as they absorb well. Yes, they are for children, but an adult can take them.

    Just the fact that you're calculating your food intake so closely is outstanding! Means you're keeping a close watch on your health. You're doing great--the scale should reflect that soon. You're an inspiration!!! emoticon emoticon
