As summer winds down, I’m checking off my list of to-do’s for the kids. Doctor’s appointments are scheduled. I’ve shopped for clothes, shoes and other supplies for them and we are working on completing their summer reading work.
Before I had children, summertime was all about ‘get healthy’ and eating right. These days it’s much easier to focus on my own health when I’ve got a little more time to do it. We have been going non stop this summer in order to squeeze in all of the fun but I’m looking forward to having some time to myself once the school year is underway so I can focus on myself again – at least for a few hours of the day.
My goal this year is to take better care of myself. I read a quote yesterday that a goal when written down into steps becomes a plan, so here it goes:
Step 1: Take vitamins
One of my personal health goals is to get back to taking vitamins regularly, because if I’m not healthy myself then I won’t be much use to my family. While I was in Walmart picking up some items for the kids, I swung by the pharmacy section to stock up on Sundown Naturals® Adult Vitamins. I’m Vitamin D deficient and want to make sure I am getting the support I need for bone and immune health so I picked up Vitamin D as well as the Probiotic and Multivitamins.
Sundown Naturals® are free of gluten, dairy and artificial flavors◊. Plus, I love that Sundown Naturals® vitamins are gummies! Why should the kids have all the fun? Maybe now I will actually remember to take my vitamins.
Step 2: Exercise regularly
I’m going for at least 2 hours per week to start. One of the recipes for failure at the start of a fitness regimen is overdoing it. I burn out quickly, so this time I want to take it nice and slow.
Step 3: Drink more water
I continue to struggle with this. Part of eating healthy for me is drinking water so that my body is hydrated and I don’t mistake dehydration for hunger. I’m going to shoot for 1/2 gallon of water per day.
