Here's how I can tell I'm getting old - the fact that I want to describe to you the number and type of pills I now pop.
Every day I take a multi-vitamin first thing when I wake up, either with a glass of water or a mug of slightly microwaved chocolate soy milk.
After eating breakfast I take a glucosamine-chondroitin capsule with my coffee, mostly for my knees.
At work I have started taking a Mega-T green tea weight loss pill, because you know, the reunion in England this spring. With dancers.
I will try to wait another hour or more before taking two Advil Liqui-gels at my desk, if I need it. Fortunately, I don't usually need it. Tylenol's acetaminophen just doesn't do the job for me anymore.
I have a second Mega-T green tea weight loss pill in the afternoon. Yay, guarana power!
Dinner is consumed with a second glucosamine-chondroitin pill. Damn jogging days of yore . . .
I wait until right before bed time to take any additional Advil Liqui-gels, if I'm still battling cold symptoms and/or feeling any achey muscles. I swear it helps me sleep better, and I'm talking about the regular Advil, not the PM stuff.
On weekends, I still pop five capsules of creatine monohydrate before a workout with weights. Domestic Partner thinks that I will be paying the consequences later, for the long term use of this Red-Bull-in-pill-form.
What pills do you pop?
