So far yesterday the diverticulitis pain was minimal. I ate bland – eggs, potatoes, rice, and peanut butter and crackers. Not exactly liquid but I felt I could get by with this. No fever yet or anything so that is good. I got a really good night’s sleep last night. Only minimal pain this morning so I will keep with the bland today. Have salmon patties tonight but I will pick at it and chew it really good.
I took a look at our SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO’s versus the Persona vitamins out there. I actually took their quiz to see what vitamins they recommended for my personalized pack. That was very helpful as it lays out for me what vitamins I should be taking. I then compared against what I’m taking. I have only started with this process. Last night I compared the main multivitamin. That SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO’s version of the a.m. and p.m. packs have about twice the mcg’s or mg’s or IU’s that Persona does. Also THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO’s cheaper. I still have to compare the other supplements taken throughout the day – such as the mid day supplement I take that has cinnamon and pepper in it for digestion and also the evening pill that has magnesium. So I guess this will be a weekend project to grab the product book and compare.
My intentions are to do a shake up improvement of what vitamins and supplements I take. I think they will help. All this in an effort to get my gut biome to a normal state. I’m also looking at probiotics and doing some research on that.
I know there is a lot of controversy out there on whether vitamins and supplements help. However, I can tell you from experience – they have given my life more value as I have energy back and less pain in joints. I can tell the mood is better with certain ones. Ask just about anyone you know and they will say that vitamins and supplements help them. I think there are probably some bum ones out there that are ineffective due to the casings they are in, etc. But I do think it’s time to do a shake up and renewal of what I need to be taking. And our diets can use some improvement as well – as always.
So this will be a project. My intention is that I will be comparing to see what is in the SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT COMPANY THAT I DO’s then I’ll see what of all that I can get cheaper. I’m just not ordering enough product now to even get my $200 in free product through the challenges anymore. That is how I paid for my vitamins. So I will try to find them cheaper. George is also taking a lot of the same ones, so we’ll combine probably from a main stash. But if I know me, I’ll want to keep mine separate for inventory control. lol
Anyway, that is all for today. I need to gather makeup on and get out the door. Much to do today. Have to do a check run, pay 401k, pay weekly taxes for this week, do quarter end returns and a whole stack of other stuff. Never ends.
People need kindness out there in a big way. Make someone smile today. It really isn’t that hard to be nice to others. Everyone has their own situations going on. So try to make it a good day. Give a smile on a day when hugs can’t be given.
