B vitamins?

I also hope you are taking calcium :^:

Are you exercising at all? I know it's weird, but sometimes when I have no energy it helps if I walk.

Ok honey, I will ask the obvious. LOL

-Are you PMSing? I know I lose all my energy 2-3 days before TOM.

-Are you getting enough protein?

-Having too many simple carbs?

I know I am being Ms. Obvious but I have to ask the some questions of myself all the time! LOL

Take care of yourself...do a mani/pedi/facial night or something! That helps me. That, and don't forget "this too shall pass!"

does anyone use those calcium chews? I take so many Pills in the AM I'd like something a little different to take later (not with my iron)

03-18-2009, 01:30 PM
i like those calcium chews, but unfortunately, they each have 20 calories, and in order for me to get the amount of calcium i need, i'd have to have 5 a day, and i just wasn't willing to 'spend' 100 calories every day on a vitamin!!!

03-18-2009, 01:38 PM
ew yeah good point
another Q how do you know how much you need?

03-18-2009, 01:53 PM
ok so I took stock of what I've done differently today
1 I got a little more sleep (sleep energy whoda thunk?)
2 I had a different breakfast Ive been having a super yummy spinach and bP lowering garlic Quicherole and that might not be too good for Princess anemia over here! yogurt and flax
3 I had a coffee with milk not protein shake
4 My lunch was strictly protein 2 servigns of turkey and 2 LCL
5 Im heading out to get some calcium supplements and some nuts for later
(tho one can argue you guys are my nuts!!)
6 I had 2 hb eggs for a snack
7 I'm continuing on the Kierie swilling water hit parade!

I believe most surgeons/nuts recommend supplementing 1500-2000mg of calcium per day. This is usually at least 3 doses, and most are 2 pills per dose (check the label, as there are some popping up now that are 500mg per pill, and some that are less, like the Citracal Petites). Also, be sure it is clacium citrate and not calcium carbonate, as the citrate is more easily absorbed, and the carbonate has the potential to help cause kidney stones. I would also make sure the calcium include Vitamin D, which aids in absorption. And, finally, don't take too much at one time, as the body is only able to absorb up to about 600mg at one time, so doses need to be spread out a few hours apart.

jilly's right - we need to take 100% of the RDA in supplements - and ya gotta read all the labels carefully. i take a separate vitamin D supplement [of course, i haven't taken ANY vitamins in at least a month - so NOW who's cruising for trouble???!!!!! :yikes: ya'll can yell at me now - i have it coming!!!

03-18-2009, 05:58 PM

03-21-2009, 12:40 PM
KIER!!! there are NO STEPS into my townhouse!!!! just drive your little scooter right into the front door and rant away!!!!! <gotta go find my centrums!!!>

03-21-2009, 05:33 PM
Kier..... this might sound wacky but could it be the change in season/weather/time change? I know everyone at work is DRAGGGGGING, tired and foggy feeling, for weeks now. Just a thought.

I have fibromyalgia so I'm sure that's part of it. I've added the chewable calcium during the day and that helps a bit and I'm eating a lot more protein!

Is your colon full of "spackle"? Do you know that people are walking around with 2 pounds of undigested meat in their colon? How about some Colon Cleanse?!?!? I'm so tired of that dang commercial. Of course, I probably have mean in my colon, I'm a dang carnivore!!! And not I don't want to use a colon cleanse!!!!!

Now that I'm done ranting....I'm dying to be able to get outside in the sun and warm up. I've been kind of low-energy because of the danged weather and wind. I haven't been exercising like I should and I just want to be back in Phoenix in the sun where my fingers don't hurt and I can walk just about everywhere I want to go. Whine, Whine, Whine!

Make sure your levels are good. You New Jersey people, just need a good dose of sunshine......ME TOO!!!
