Rounding out my healthy lifestyle with Vitafusion™ Women’s multivitamin

Posted by runnerstrials

Health has always been a huge priority of mine. For the past decade, exercising regularly and having good nutrition have been important to me.


Or so they were.

Four years ago, I had my first child. Almost instantly, I went from doing everything possible to keep myself healthy to just worrying about his health. All that mattered to me was keeping my son – and eventually his little sister – happy and healthy.

By focusing most of my energy on my children, I made the same mistake so many other moms make – I forgot about me. As a runner, the exercise piece of the health puzzle has always come naturally to me. But the nutrition part? That’s slowly gone downhill over the past few years.

My family is always short on time. I run as soon as I wake up, I work all day, and then I try to squeeze as much time in with my kiddos as possible before we all turn down for the night. Since I don’t have much “free” time, I don’t like devoting a lot of it to planning and preparing meals.

I’m trying to get better about this. Good nutrition is a must for good health. I want my kids to grow up eating wholesome foods, and I want to take care of myself so that I’m around to see them have kids.

So, I’ve been experimenting with ways to make the nutrition piece more convenient. Specifically:

We’re cooking larger meals on the weekend:

My husband works long hours, and he’s not home in time for dinner on the weeknights. Recently we’ve been spending Sundays cooking a few meals for the week. Having him around to help me wash, dice, and sauté makes cooking go a lot more quickly – plus we have fun!

I’m taking my vitamins.

I’ve been taking vitafusion™ Women’s Multivitamins and I’m a huge fan of them! I love that it’s a complete multivitamin with so many of the essential vitamins that a woman needs --- yay for folic acid!

These flavorful gummy vitamins taste so good that I never forget to take them. They’re super flavorful, but they’re not made with high fructose corn syrup or synthetic (FD&C) dyes– an ingredient that I try hard to keep out of my house! These delicious vitamins are such a convenient way to fill in my gaps in nutrition.


You can find the vitafusion™ Women’s Multivitamin and other vitafusion™ gummy vitamins at club, mass, drug and grocery stores nationwide, including: Costco, Walmart, Target, and Walgreens. For more information, check out:
