Not being on much of a pharmaceutical regimen (I take one, maybe two, pills a day, I do no injections), I don't have a lot of ingrained "take your meds" habits. Or practice. So, this afternoon, I got to the usual 1:30 time-to-pack-it-in energy low, and I didn't have any matcha with me, and I didn't feel like slogging to Starbucks to spend $3 on something that I should have made for myself at a fraction of the cost, but I was feeling pretty good, so I say to myself, "Oh, I'll make it."
Nope. That bravura lasted until, oh, 'bout 1:43. 13 minutes of confidence, thereabouts. Big mistake. I hope that today's crash doesn't do me in until next week's energy treatments. But we'll see. I was able to finish a handbell arrangement this evening, and I'm still feeling pretty good about it/life/everything, so perhaps I didn't completely hose myself by forgetting a teaspoon of green tea powder.
In the meantime, I'm off to the next room to pack up some tea for tomorrow. No--my medication for tomorrow. Time for another new habit, it seems.
Live and (with luck) learn.
