Before I became a full time Mom and blogger, I had a job in the H.R. department of a major telecom company. My schedule was routine, pretty much Monday-Friday, 9 to 5. Each day, I got up, worked, had lunch, worked some more, got off work, headed home to cook dinner, rest, chat with friends, sleep, and repeat.
After getting married and having kids, everything changed. My schedule evolved around them, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! No one had ever warned me that a full-time Mom doesn't get any days-off! What a big surprise!
My typical week as a full-time Mom would involve taking the kids to play dates, birthday parties, recreational classes, parks, and library. While at home, I also need to take care of the laundry, cleaning up their messes, and to prepare meals throughout the day! For whatever time I have left, I also need to work on my recipes and blog posts. Most of these activities are without a set schedule.
Out of all the fun and craziness being a full time Mom, I came to realize one important lesson! Which is, I need to take better care of myself before I can take good care of my family. While it is challenging to keep a balanced lifestyle and diet under such irregular schedules, there’s one habit that I have always kept for many years… which is to put my vitamins and supplements containers right next to my coffee beans! Since I must grind and brew my coffee every morning, this strategic storage location allows me to always remember to take my dietary supplements while preparing for my coffee.
Recently, I have added another supplement to my morning routine. It is the vitafusion™ Extra Strength Biotin. Biotin is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fatty acids, and amino acids. Biotin also plays a key role in the health of skin, hair and nails.* I decided to give this a try!
For those who knows me, you probably know that I can’t swallow pills, no matter how tiny they are. Luckily, vitafusion™ makes their great-tasting vitamins in gummy. This also allows me to pop two gummy into my mouth, while grinding the coffee beans, without the need to pour myself another glass of water!
For those who always read the Supplement Facts label, vitafusion™ products are gluten-free, and made with natural fruit flavors and colors derived from fruits, vegetables and plants. They contain no high fructose corn syrup, and no synthetic (FD&C) dyes.
I feel great adding the vitafusion™ Extra Strength Biotin to my morning routine and I cannot wait to see how things go in a few months. The vitafusion™ gummy vitamins are available at club, drug and grocery stores nationwide including: Costco, Walmart, Target and Walgreens. More information can be found at www.gummyvites.com.
