we don't eat meat at home, so i'm mindful of the holes we need to fill. i want to be aware of getting enough vitamin b12, iron, and zinc. we do eat dairy, but i want to keep my bones strong so am aware of calcium intake as well.
i've also recently read a bit of woman code. i took the quick test on the author's website, and it predicted that i have a magnesium deficiency. i'd also been told about taking magnesium for the heart palpitations that i experience. i've been taking fish oil (sporadically) for a couple years for that as well, but finding second reason to believe i may be deficient in magnesium motivated me to take action.
so with my vitamin b12, iron, zinc, vitamin d, and vitamin c covered in a multivitamin... my magnesium + calcium supplemented... and fish oil accounted for... i now have four pills to take. i'm determined to take those vitamins every day, and have been proud of my consistency over the past three weeks. the problem is that in the past few days, i've realized that i've gotten so used to taking my vitamins that i can't always remember doing it.
oh, habits. it feels a little dorky, but i've succumbed to the pill organizer. i looked for a non-plastic option, but didn't find one. i'll hope this one lasts. now i can keep track and be sure not to double dose.
