Kinda Fishy

I told myself last week that if I did set some New Year's goals I would start them on Jan 2nd. I was not going to start something "new" on a vacation day! The day after one of the biggest party nights of the year! The day of "bowls" and endless hours of football (okay, I only watched a few minutes of the Cotton Bowl, but still!)! January 1st wasn't going to do, so the 2nd it is.

So, as I am about ready to walk out the door this morning I realize I haven't taken my vitamins. I dash to the cabinet and pull out all the bottles (organization – life long goal!!), open them up and start dishing out the pills: multi-vitamin, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, and glucosamine/chondroitin (I think that is it). I also pulled out Beazer's vitamins – fish oil capsules – you know good ole omega-3's, great for a healthy and shiny coat! I said what the heck and added it to the mix, popped the pills, drank some milk and headed out the door.

All was fine and good until about half-way through a meeting and I start burping. Nothing loud and obnoxious, just fishy!!

NASTY!! YUCKY!! NOT PLEASANT, AT ALL!!

I drink the glass of water I have in front of me. Not really helping. I breathe in after every burp just in case others can smell that wonderful fishy smell that I sure can taste. And as soon as that meeting is over I head for the refrigerator and some food. Hopefully that will settle things. And so far, it seems to have.

I will try taking them for a few more days – and this time not on an empty stomach. If that doesn't help I am going to say the heck with having a shiny coat!!

Yep. I tried the fish oil capsules a few times, too, and got the same results. I tried chasing them with Altoids, but nothing but time seemed to really help much.

This is why I don't eat those fish oil vitamins...

I had the same results with fish oil too. Needless to say, I'm not taking it anymore.

Hahahaha! So, if I get to meet you and you burp on me, I'm going to call you Beazer Breath! :)

Food does help with Omega 3's. I usually take mine with dinner. Just so you know, my face is usually shiny. LOL Or is that oily?
