|Way too many supplements, and I’m adding MORE!|
I’ve been pretty consistent with my supplements recently. I added black cohosh recently and plan to add a few more to the repertoire soon. Hopefully the new additions will get my whacked out hormones under control. My face has turned into a cesspool of hatred, seemingly overnight. Now it won’t heal. I’m pretty upset about it. It hurts like hell to be broken out like this. I also have been forgoing makeup in hopes that it will allow my skin to heal faster, so in the meantime I look like an absolute haint. It’s humiliating. I feel a desperate urge to explain this ugliness to random strangers, but I can only imagine the looks I would get. Don’t get the wrong idea here, I’m a pretty au naturale girl when it comes to makeup. However, I’m a fan of covering up nasty imperfections and getting gussied up occasionally. Oh well, it will have to wait.
I have been walking more now that the weather is warm (actually, unseasonably HOT). I love taking C out in the stroller after lunch. It’s relaxing to be outside enjoying the sunshine, and I get some good exercise as well. My fiance and I have also been enjoying some evening walks with our little fella sniffing everything in sight. Maybe one day in the future we will have a stroller to push too…
cinnamon with chromium
magnesium with zinc
b6 (this will become a b complex when I run out of this stuff)
*I added black cohosh 3/18*
*I plan to also add in blue cohosh and vitex (chaste berry) as well as choline inositol.
*I also plan to replace the multivitamin that I just ran out of with something that contains FOLATE instead of folic acid. I read an article recently about the evils of folic acid.
What supplements do you take and why? Do you have any experience with the supplements I have mentioned?
