Four Things

1.  I have always been terrible about taking vitamins.  I always think I’m going to be good and take a multivitamin every day but it never lasts more than a week.  Then I discovered gummy vitamins for adults!  I read about One-a-Day VitaCraves on a blog I like to read and thought “Now, I could remember to eat (not take) those every day!”.  I picked up a bottle of 50 from Walmart and I love them!  They did seem a little spendy at around $8 for a bottle of 50, especially when you’re talking 2 a day.  But I looked on the Sam’s Club website and found the exact same product for $18 for a bottle of 150.  When my bottle runs out, I’ll start getting it from Sam’s Club.

2. Here’s something else that I’ve never liked but changed due to a remarkable product I’ve discovered:  I’ve never liked water.  Not even the delicious (so I’m told) water from Oregon.  Now I’ve been drinking nothing but water.  I received a sample of Mio Liquid Enhancer and really liked it.  You can make it as strong or weak as you want, depending on the size squirt you use.  I’ve tried Fruit Punch and it was good.  I also really like Berry Pomegranate but my favorite concoction is the Sweet Tea flavor with a TrueLemon packet added.  It tastes just like the shaken Iced Tea Lemonade that I used to get from Starbucks all the time.  Our fridge has an ice maker/water dispenser so it makes it really easy to make and I’ve been drinking more water than I ever have.

 3. People in Lexington (and probably the entire state of Kentucky) refer to shopping carts as a buggy.  It still strikes me as so odd when I hear it.

4. For someone who always insisted they don’t like bananas, I’ve been eating a lot of bananas recently.  It started with a super yummy dessert at The Pub called Jamaican Cheesecake.  The description is fresh bananas, banana liqueur,  chocolate Oreo crust, caramel sauce, whipped cream, and macadamia nuts.  CJ & I split one several weeks ago and it was SOO good! I’m a total caramel freak and it was all I could do to not lick the plate clean at the restaurant.  And the banana part of it wasn’t too bad.  Then I remembered my mom telling me about organic bananas.  She told me how much better they tasted then regular bananas.  So when I was at Kroger the other day, I picked up a bunch of organic bananas.   I also found a really yummy cereal that was priced well and didn’t have any form of sugar as the first two ingredients (thanks for the reminder, Dad!).  Active Lifestyle Vanilla Almond (it’s a Kroger product).  So for the last week, I’ve been eating a bowl of it with a banana sliced on top.  It’s really good! And Mom was right about the organic bananas.  But I have to make sure and buy them green coz I still hate bananas if there is any brown on the peel.

    ha!!! I have been reformed by 2 out of 4 of your above new findings 😉 I LOVE mio! I’m in love. I’ve never been so hydrated before consistently. i have SUCH a hard time downing water- I tried Brita, I tried crystal light- I just couldn’t gag down enough! I drink at least about 32 oz of water a day, but for me this is HUGE. I was going w/o any water ever. i fill up my large nalgene bottle every morning, bring in a glass w/ a straw and refill it as I go throughout my work day 🙂 *love!*

    As for the gummy vitamins! WIN! I saw them at walmart, and I had a large bottle of them- and I buy the kiddo version for kbug- but I haven’t taken them in quite a while- I have centrum chewables but I have to gag those bad boys down too lol- bleck. I’m hoping the gummy prenatal vitamins are good enough I found online thanks to you 😉 I’ll take them in my first appt- and make sure. They don’t have iron or calcium in them, so I may have to make sure to pick up some calcium chews 🙂

    you rock!

    and I agree about organic bananas- So much better! and I buy them green too, I won’t eat banana’s that have green speckles. lol- I feed them to kaylee- I dunno they have a weird taste- maybe it’s mental ,but i don’t like it.
