Starting Today



Today’s Motivation Monday post is a little different. Since I’m jump-starting a new health & fitness journey, I thought I’d share with you what I started doing as of today (in hopes that it would motivate you to do the same)…Starting today, I’m going to begin taking multi-vitamins again. I was on top of my vitamins intake last year, but I fell off because I was taking like 9 a day & they were HUGE! Subsequently, I found a vitamin that only requires 1 per day, and it covers mostly all the bases (including hair, skin & nail so I don’t have to take a separate vitamin for that).

Multi-vitamins don’t take the place of nutrients we should be receiving from food, but they are great supplements! Oh, and if you’re taking other medications, make sure to check with your doctor first before selecting a multi-vitamin.


“…Okay, Melissa, I know you’re trying to get fit and all, but what does this have to do with the WORD?! I thought Motivation Monday was supposed to feed my spirit!”

So glad you asked! (LoL) I want to motivate you to start making little changes to take better care of your body, because your body is the temple of the Most High. God promised in Psalms 91 to satisfy us with long life, but, like many promises, if we don’t do our part we won’t see it come to fruition in our lives. Think of it this way, your Great Commission, as a follower of Christ, is to share the Good News & introduce others to our loving Savior, Jesus Christ. So, how can we spread the News if our lives are cut short, or our quality of life is restricted by sickness?

I know my biggest obstacle has been: “I don’t know how!” And, I’m sure that’s the case for a lot of people. That is why I’m going to learn as much as I can, and share it with you guys. Then, we can learn and grow together. **G.I.G.**

P.S. – The multi-vitamin I started taking today day is Alive! Women’s Energy. I may change brands in the future, but this is a start.
