Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes (to habits)

To Life!
To Spark People!
To Changes!

I thrive on change and lack of habits. I live to put spice and spark in my life. So this morning, I'm starting a new habit.

Actually, I was forced into it last week when the hypothyroid diagnosis said, "Take this pill, then wait about an hour and a half to eat."

And while I was wondering what to do while I waited an hour and a half to break my fast, and wondering if I would become a ravenous bear while I waited to eat my berries, yogurt, and nuts, I read about SP April Rise and Shine challenge. The SP Gods were smiling on me then because I get to rise, take that pill, then do my workout before breakfast. I checked with the doctor to be sure that would be ok.

So you get to watch this streak unfold because I will have to report here on my blog since I closed that Facebook account. No, that wasn't a case of spicing up my life. It seems I'm also very opinionated. But I'm happy to report I have survived without it.

So Rise and Shine Day 1 report: Walked a mile. Had a breakfast of strawberries, raspberries, banana, Greek Yogurt, TJ flax seed with blueberries, and raw almonds. To my opinionated mind, it was a delicious awesome sunrise to this rising, shining morning!!

For you inquiring minds, I DID NOT turn into a ravenous bear. Of course you would have had to be here to form your own opinions

    I have such a conflict with meds and food. I'm diabetic and hypothyroid so on one hand take a pill and wait.. on the other eat every few hours and definitely within a half hour of rising. We are doing a dance.

    YOU? Opinionated?! :)

    I'm sure you will as usual find your way with this and get all the positive out of the situation.

    Mine say to take 30 minutes before eating. That allows me to feed all my pets after taking the dogs out and then I get to eat.

    Don't know what medication you are taking, but mine says wait 30 minutes to an hour. I take it as soon as I wake. It and a glass of water is on my bedside table. I don't like to eat soon after I wake, but even if I did, getting up, bathroom, dressing, making coffee would take 30 minutes or more. Check your medication instructions to make sure you have to wait that long.

    I take the same daily pill. When I awaken in the middle of the night , I take the pill & when I get up 1-4 hours later I can have breakfast without setting a timer.

    Sounds like a great way to start the day.

    Might have been fun to see a ravenous bear playing a harp! Your breakfast sounded perfectly wonderful...for a bear. emoticon
