Over the weekend, as my husband worked on a house project, Eva, my endlessly entertaining, extremely talkative 4 year old complained that Daddy wouldn’t let her help, even though she had “16 hundred and 45 pieces of energy!” So that’s where it all went! Unlike Eva, I don’t have an excess of energy. I do, however, have 1645 things to do, and I always seem to run out of steam before the end of the day. My husband and parents always end up blaming it on my diet. They’re always convinced I am not eating enough, or eating enough of the right things, during the day. And of course that’s true, but I’m doing the best I can. Some days, it’s hard to pause to eat, much less eat right, throughout the day. So, aside from diet and exercise (what’s that?) – I need to find some quick, healthy energy boosters that will keep me going throughout the day. Here, a few of the pick-me-ups on my shopping list:
1. Omega XL: This is one of the priciest omegas I’ve found, but it’s apparently astonishingly good. At least that’s what the infomercial said, so I bought it. Now I need to find the energy to take it.
2. Fatigue Fighting Cocktail from Dr Oz: More vitamins. Dr. Oz recommends 50 mg B Complex Vitaminsand 1000 iu of Vitamin D3 to enhance energy.
