Pills, pills, pills

Lately, I've been feeling like an old woman with her stacks of pills to take each morning. I've been taking a multi-vitamin, a fish oil (omega-3 fatty acid), and ibuprofren (and actually, I've been taking the recommended dosage of IB twice daily). Together, they make a neat little stack of medication. Plus, a friend recommended, and gave me to try, "Mona Vie" which is a supplemental drink that contains a cocktail of natural juices and, perhaps, ground-up elves for good measure. That, I take in a one ounce shot, and actually, it's kinda tasty.

All of this crap better be worth swallowing.

I used to be a bit of a pill freak--then I went totally off pills, and have barely ingested anything unless I'm experiencing a migraine. See if you notice a difference with all the med...if not, I'd say try a different approach.

What's the Mona Vie for?

Fish oil is supposed to be great for reducing inflammation. But if you ever try to get pregnant, stop the fish oil; I've read that it can negatively affect fertility (not in the long-term).

Hehehe. I agree with Neese. Until you have the pill box...it isn't too bad! I too take a multivitamin and omega-3, and then Ibuprofen most days! The fish oils are supposed to be really good for the muscles...I believe..

Only take CLA as part of my weight-loss plan...on top of the yoga. Organization is the key. Everything will work out.
