today is my mom and dad's 35th wedding anniversary!

this weekend paul and i went to think cafe to celebrate the project he's been working for months on going live, watched laws of attraction, played cranium and phase 10, watched kiss the girls, the terminal, and the beginning of the forgotten. yesterday morning he woke up feeling mega sick, so i played nurse (don't let yr dirty mind play tricks on you), cooking, cleaning, medicating, and making the boy comfortable. basically, he could have become sick through any number of people he's been around in the past few weeks, including three who were darn sick (including moi). my baby is taking a day off today to rest up. we'll see how he feels today. i didn't accomplish anything major on my to do list this weekend, but hopefully i'll be able to check off some boxes next weekend including painting the trim in the kitchen, painting my bedroom, learning how to use my print gocco, mail out a gazillion late or soon to be late packages (including manda, susie, the mix cd trade, paul's aunt, etc.).

ladies, do any of you take vitamins? for what? do they help? i'm looking into buying a daily women's vitamin, but i really know very little about them. i spoke with diana about it, but i'd like to hear yr opinions. i was at whole foods just staring at all of them and i was overwhelmed. help!

last week i listened to anne summers a lot since putting them on my ipod. there are a few songs that i would just LOVE to cover. yes, i am yours in nerdiness.

Current Mood: okay
Current Music: the clacking of keys & lawyer speak

Vitamins:

This is what I take daily.
- CVS multiple vitamin (not the spectravite). Centrum-like vitamins have a low solubility rate in the body.
- chewable vitamin C
- calcium + D

I also take B12, but that's to supplement what I lose from not eating meat. Also, since you're relatively young, you don't need to start taking anything such as folic acid just yet.

i don't know much about vitamins, but i can tell you about CALCIUM! you should start taking calcium right away, missy. my gynocologist recommended taking daily calcium when i was 22, so it's never too early. a 600 ml pill a day to start with is good, then you can start taking two a day. make sure it has vitamin D.
taking calcium now with make for healthy bones and teeth later on in life - and that is really important. my mother has arthritis now and the medication she is taking is putting her at high risk of oesteoporosis. it's scary!

i take vitamins. theyre not women's ones, just the unisex one-a-day variety. i take them because i dont always eat right & that makes me feel better about it. i notice a difference sometimes when im not getting enough sleep-- generally i'll start to get sick pretty quickly when im *not* taking them, but when i am it keeps me going longer. just my two cents.

Hey, I second the need for a calcium vitamin. My nutrionist started me on Calcium Citrate (I forget what the Citrate part means, but Vitamin D is an important part), a complex B-vitamin (although I think just a regular B is fine, too), and a women's multi.

The women's multi is Target-brand (el cheap), but I've tried Nature's Ready (is that the name? Nature Made? It's a yellow bottle). I don't think the brand matters so much (unless you have vegan concerns) as the content. I would just grab a few and compare what they offer...500% of your daily Iron intake or 600%, that kind of thing. The more vitamins in a multi, the better.

This link is pretty good: http://www.vitamins-nutrition.org/vitamins/index.html. They have an overview on various vitamins and it looks like they have information on brands, too.

Good luck!

Daily:

- Prenatal vitamins [I started doing this when I was working for the OB/GYN in Alexandria]. They make your hair and nails grow like mad.
- Calcium [for the bones, helps PMS]
- A good Vitamin C [keeps the sickies away]
- Iron [I'm anemic, so this is a have-to]

i agree with everyone's advice. i take the Whole Foods brand "iron free adult multi." the iron makes me insanely gassy, but maybe it doesn't have that effect on everyone. most vitamins for older adults are iron-free. unless you are anemic, you shouldn't need the extra iron. this vitamin is also only once a day, which is good.
