Energy level is way up. However, experiencing severe mood swings, which aren't normal for me. Not PMS time for me either.
I take my multivitamin at night right before bed, and sleep through the nausea. I've been using "One-A-Day, Women's Weight Control (or is it Weight Smart?) IDK, for years and years now. It has 18mg of iron, and I need every one of them.

My goal this week

I will go to the gym 5 days a week.
I will do yoga 2 days out of 5 days.
Eat under 1500 calories a day
Drink atleast 5 cups of water (I don't drink water so this is going to be hard)

Have you tried one of those Emergen-c packets? One of those mixed in water will also serve a dual purpose--nutrients and drinking more water. You could drink it over a couple of hours and see how your stomach feels.

One packet won't meet all your RDAs, but they do have high amounts of Vit B6 & B12. So I don't think I'd take more than one packet a day, though, because of the high Vit Bs. I esp like the Calcium & Vit D one. I drink it while exercising at the gym.
