Trying to Make #NutritionPossible for This Busy Mom with Centrum ProNutrients

As you all know, I am a 40 (err…umm, yea something) year old mother of 6 children from the ages of 22 all the way down to 2!  I’m a busy mom.  I work from home, I clean constantly, I cook, I blog, and all the while I try to keep up with these babies!
I try to live a healthy lifestyle, I try to eat well.  But this doesn’t always work out for me.  In fact, it rarely does.  I’m just too busy to pay attention to what or when I’m eating!  And often, I just don’t eat at all!
So I take vitamins and supplements (in an attempt to fill all of the voids in my diet), and I stay active.  Of course I stay active!  I’m always running after the babies!  No matter where we are, they are running and I’m the one that runs after them!  

I recently discovered the new Centrum ProNutrients Line of supplements and did some research to see if they would be right for me and my needs. 
They have a fruit and veggie supplement that is 100% naturally sourced from grapes, blueberries, raspberries, plums, carrots, and tomatoes.  It claims to support cell protection and general health (which is exactly what I need).

They have an Omega 3 supplement said to promote heart health, as well as brain and eye structures.  Intriguing for sure.  I think this will be the next thing I add.

And they offer a Probiotic.  I am already taking another brand and it has done wonders for me with my digestive health.  If the fruit and veggie supplements work, I believe I’ll be trying these out as well.

I liked what I read and decided I should definitely go with the fruit and veggie supplements to add to my daily regime of a multivitamin, zinc, calcium, and probiotic.  I’m hopeful that this new regime will help me in my plight to keep up, stay active, and stay healthy!  “At my age”, it’s important to maintain my health so that I can keep up with the babies now and be around for them for many years to come!

There really is A LOT of running, playing, skipping, twirling, and jumping left to do before they are grown!  I have to stay healthy, I have to stay active, so I’ve made up my mind!  I will do everything possible to maintain my health for them!

Before heading to Walmart, I again visited the Centrum site where I was able to print a $3.00 off coupon for Centrum ProNutrients.  The babies and I loaded up and headed out on our daily (yes daily) shop. You can view that below if you’d like to see what we found and an insight into my decision-making process.

I’m really hopeful that these Centrum ProNutrient fruit and veggie supplements will give me the added boost I’m looking for!  As of yesterday, I have added them to my daily routine and I’m keeping my fingers crossed!  I’m a busy mom, that won’t change.  I’ve tried to change my eating habits, but can’t seem to “fix” that.  I always remember to take my vitamins before going to bed so hopefully getting two extra servings of fruits and veggies (one serving per mini tab and you take 2 a day) will be exactly what I need!
I’ll be back to tell you the results in about a month so stay tuned!  Now if you’ll pardon me, I need to go run after the babies!
