Reporting In

It's been one week since I confessed my bad behavior of not faithfully taking my vitamins. It's actually been two weeks since I've gotten myself back on track though (Vocabulary Lesson was the start of my recommitment). I'm just reporting in so that I'm accountable to you, my readers, as well as to myself.

Since December 7th I have taken nearly all of my vitamin and calcium doses. There was a couple days when I was short one of my calcium doses, but otherwise I've been on track with my vitamin routine each day. It's still a struggle and I still have to give myself a stern talking to sometimes - but it's becoming easier each day. I believe it will take another couple weeks of sticking to the routine before I feel fully comfortable in saying that I'm 100% back on track.

I'm actively using the alarm system from My Med Schedule and I'm getting text messages sent to my phone at my scheduled times throughout the day. It helps to remind me of my commitment.

What else do I need to do better on?

  • Getting that final 20oz bottle of water into the end of my day (just grabbed a glass of water)
  • Getting to bed earlier (said as I write this post at 11:35 p.m.)
  • Eat more vegetables (do dill pickles count?)
Thanks for your support!


  1. I agree, it all comes down to accountability, I have a pill pack I load every day with my vitamins and calcium as well as my meds and if I miss any I leave them in there all week so I can see where I missed and make more of an effort to stay on top of it.

    Now I need to go back to charting protein and water for a while

  2. Thanks T'Rina! I sort all my vitamins into 7-day pill organizers for 3 weeks at a time, then each day I carry a little one-day pill box with that day's stuff. It makes being accountable a bit easier when there's a system in place.
