SUNSHINE



Who doesn't need a little sunshine??? Yes, those winter blues can hold you captive...so ENJOY the sunshine when you can! Today it's a bit warmer here...and I'm getting ready to take the kiddos around the block. Not only will it get in some extra exercise, it will help catch some much needed Vitamin D!!! Most of us are NOT getting enough vitamin D....even with fortified milk and cereals. As a dietitian I always recommend "eating" your vitamins and not popping your pills...but unless you're getting in lots of SUNSHINE and fish (tuna, salmon, sardines) you might need to add this supplement to your daily regimen.
SO... GET UP from your computer or away from that tv...bundle up...leaving some areas exposed for the sunshine to enter...and WALK outside for a few minutes. You're body will thank you for the exercise and the Vitamin D!

Cheers with some Milk tonight won't hurt!

you are funny! I love vitamin D and I need more of it! I had sushimi tonight...does raw salmon count towards vitamin d? I'll miss you all and the pictures tomorrow--I would def be one of the ones w/ makeup! Spent 30 minutes on the elliptical at the Y this afternoon. Didn't make it to Bodypump....b/c we bought a new car this morning!!! I finally got my SUV!!!
