I have spent the whole week planning, shopping, and prepping for next week’s big Thanksgiving dinner. As usual I am hosting, and while I really do love it, it’s no secret that it is hard work. I have a birthday tossed in there mid-week as well, so while that is supposed to be a day of celebration and relaxation, who are we kidding? There is no time to ‘chill’! I have a major holiday to host. Isn’t that what we do? We take care of everyone else before we worry about our own desires. As a mom and wife, that is honest to goodness just fine by me. I want to please my family, I want them to have a great holiday, and I am certainly willing to sacrifice my own fun for that. My younger self just came out of my head in shock and surprise. Wow, when did I become a grown-up? I know most Moms and wives can relate though. This is just the beginning, Thanksgiving kicks off the very busy holiday season! As fun as the winter months are, we can be in store for madness. Especially for those of us wearing so many hats as it is. The holidays aren’t just fun times for all, they can represent hard work to make our loved ones feel special, have fun, and enjoy every second of the season. I don’t know about you but, all of this running around can leave me feeling weary, and physically and mentally drained. I recognize that it is so important for me to keep healthy. After all, if I’m not healthy, who will make sure all of the details are taken care of so that my family can enjoy their holiday season? This is why I feel better taking my Emergen-C during the winter months. Taking it every day makes me feel fortified, and gives me peace of mind to know that I can tackle everything this season has in store.
Emergen-C has 1,000 mg of Vitamin C plus other antioxidants Zinc and Manganese support your immune system*. I’ve made taking Emergen-C part of my healthy lifestyle. Many mornings start with an Emergen-C Super Orange Smoothie. It is an easy and delicious way to take vitamins that are super important to my healthy and crazy-hectic lifestyle. Its 7 B Vitamins enhance energy naturally* without caffeine. I love my coffee runs, so I don’t have to worry about over doing the caffeine.
I love smoothies because they are simple to whip up and very easy to travel with. Given that my breakfast is usually a piece of toast in the car on my way to work, this Emergen-C Super Orange Smoothie is a great companion. By the way there are 20 flavors to choose from so you won’t run out of smoothie ideas. In fact I was torn between Super Fruit and the Super Orange varieties. Ultimately I went with the Super Orange, but now I’m thinking I may have to head back to Walgreens and pick up the Super Fruit. I know, I should’ve just bought them both while I was there…ugh! I guess the hubs will be heading on a Walgreens run soon 🙂
Emergen-C is packed with B vitamins, antioxidants†, electrolytes plus more vitamin C than 10 oranges^! This is some serious support to our immune systems!
So I am now all shopped, planned, and prepped out. I am still getting a final tally of guests for Thanksgiving dinner, so I may need to do some more shopping (perhaps another store run for the hubs). I am already tired, but no time for that–now I need to clean the house for my guests, and what the heck, why not just do some Christmas decorating while I’m at it? They’ll love to see the lights as they pull up to our home!
I am not sure how I go from tired to restless in no time flat, but I guess that is what works for me! Keeping myself healthy is really important, this is why I need Emergen-C on the daily.
