Today’s post is all about supporting a healthy lifestyle. For me this includes weight loss, bone health and women’s heart health… Has any of that been on your list of goals for improving? I didn’t make a new years resolution but, I’m making better life choices. Who else want’s a healthier lifestyle?
This topic makes me feel kind of vulnerable. Let me tell you why. To be honest I have gained more than few more pounds than I’d like to admit. I need to take my own life choices and lack of exercise into my hands. Starting with a heathy plan. What about you?
Let me share the good/bad of my healthier journey this year. The good: I’ve been focusing on eating healthier. Portioning out my food choices onto smaller plates for serving, which helps me. Eating smaller meals more often vs. going all day and really feeling hungry!
I bought a new pair of walk/running shoes. Although, I know I won’t be running anytime soon. I am using them to power walk more consistently. Plus drinking plenty of water. And adding vitamins back into my regimen. I’ve made myself accountable and included the family too. Why? Because I love them.
My favorite place to walk is the beach when I get a chance to drive out there. But, for everyday I end up heading out with the dog in my neighborhood.
The bad: Walking daily hasn’t been as consistent as I’d like. Whether it’s been weather, motivation, too busy working or racing the kiddo around…. I want to get outside daily! And increase my routine with other activities too.
The good: Remembering to eat smaller meals more often. Lunches that are light, healthy then add vitamins to supplement anything lacking in my diet. And support my immune system! My choice is Nature Made for getting back on track.
No matter what age or stage we are at there are healthy choices that we can make. And sometimes those choices make things easier for the long run. For example I’m not a huge milk drinker, I work indoors and am getting older. The combination equals lack of Vitamin D. Although getting outdoors will help a little at my last Dr. visit she suggested I take vitamins, specifically Vitamin D. Something I really haven’t focused until now. But, it’s worth doing, I know I used to take multi vitamins.
I don’t know why I stopped taking vitamins for a while. I used to take daily ones when I was younger, then vitamins when pregnant (as prescribed by the Dr.) I think you just forget sometimes how something so simple can make things better for your health. Supplementing what your lacking in your system. Especially as women with all the things our bodies go through over the years. I mean, seriously we encounter so many changes and even monthly challenges (if you know what I mean) where our bodies and system could just use a boost.
I love Nature Made soft gels, tablets and melt a ways. There are so many to choose from to suit your needs. The melt a ways are great for anyone who doesn’t like to take pills. My teen prefers the VitaMelts to the capsules. I also love the new packaging, with safety seal on the outside and inside too.

Here’s an in store photo of when I had the chance to go to Walmart to pick up some Nature Made Vitamins. Walmart is a great place to find them, priced afforable and the selection is large to fit any of mine/your needs!
