New Med

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I'm trying out the SP coaching choice. So far I don't really feel like I have a personal coach. The check-in page is automatic, sort of like going down the Spark Points page and doing things to get points. I don't feel as though anybody would notice if I didn't work out or went way over my diet limits. The only reason I'd want a coach is so he/she would be firm with me when I slacked off, demanding to know what the reason is. That's the only kind of accountability with a coach that I'd know about. But we'll see. I'll do the full two weeks. But if this is all it is, I don't want to pay for it.

My new med is the same as my old med, but in another form. Instead of taking it two times a day, I take it only once, and it's a time release thing. It doesn't last from one dose to the next. I wake up grouchy and way too irritable. Not nice for the children or for me when I get so irritated at them when they act their age. That's new, and unpleasant. Since I have to teach and babysit from 4 to 8 AM, it's too early to take the next dose. Or is it? Who says I have to take it at a certain time, as long as I'm consistent? OK, solved that problem. Thanks, guys.

    Yes being consistent is important and sometimes very necessary. Give your meds time to kick in.
