I track my sodium, proteins, fats and carbs now. I tracked calcium for a time and found I was consistently low, which I knew, so I have been taking this and Vit D for years. My iron intake is low too but I know your body stores that and my levels are OK.

Slow but will get there!

I track calories, fat, sodium, carbs, fiber, protein, calcium, and caffeine. I started tracking caffeine because I was drinking a lot of soda. Now I just track it for when I actually do have a soda, but also because sometimes I take caffeinated supplements and don't wanna go overboard. I'm usually low on calcium. I wondered how much iron should you be taking a day, and why? One day soon (when I get to a computer and remember to), I'll change my tracker to track other vitamins.

I use to keep track of fiber but was going over 'cause of fruits & veggies. I didn't want to get discourage & not eat veggies & fruit.
I keep track of sodium & calcium.

Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down.

sorry this challenge is late, but happy Monday to you!

Your challenge today is two-fold:

1) Go to your Nutrition page and make sure you have items in your tracker that follow important vitamins/minerals. For instance, I have mine track:

*Vitamin C
*Calcium
*Folate
*Vitamin D
*Iron
*Potassium

(Feel free to have your tracker track what nutrients you and/or your doctor feel are important)

2) Do your best to get in ALL OF THESE in your daily menu. That means you need to EAT HEALTHY! Should you find yourself not being able to meet these through your menu, your multi-vitamin should cover the rest.

Have a great Monday!
