I decided that I've been a very bad vegetarian as of late. Instead of changing my eating habits and working out, I vowed to resume taking vitamins. ('Cause that's the same.) Mom bought some vitamins a few weeks ago per her doc, but they upset her stomach and so I simply commandeered these.
Bad idea number one.
I took the first pill this morning with my coffee.
Yeah, don't do that (i.e. bad idea number two).
One of the selling points of this particular vitamin is that it is designed for "Women's Active Mind and Body." Well, this woman possesses neither of those things as of late, so that should have been my first clue that I was barking up the wrong tree. But I liked the idea of getting all my vitamins/minerals in addition to "energy support" (since the slow coffee and/or iced tea drip to which I'm attached all day aren't enough) and "weight loss support."
Maybe, just maybe, they should have indicated that the weight loss method of choice with this pill is bulimia. I puked within ten minutes of taking the mo-effer.
I know, I know. "But Natalie, why the H would you take vitamins on a stomach full of iced espresso? You're so pretty." (That last bit is a condescending, albeit adorable, quip of which my friends and I are most fond.) And you're correct. It was a bad idea.
But if you think I'm giving up my coffee for fear of a lil osteoporosis or vitamin deficiency, you're out of your gourd! I mean, coffee comes from the ground. Vegetables come from the ground. Vegetables are healthy and chock full o' vitamins. Ergo coffee is better than vitamins.
If you don't see my logic, I just can't help you.
