's been a wee bit of a fight over here

Damn I hate this Metformin. I started back on the 3 times daily dose last Friday and it's been a fight to stay functional around here. I've gotten so I do not want to even eat because I KNOW I'll have to take one of those damnedable pills just afterwards. I think you were right the other night iggy, it's possible the sugar keeps crashing out. Just enough to tire me out, but not enough to do anything worse yet. So do I wanna be tired because I havent eaten OR do I want to be tired because I had to take my medicine? Not that I have a choice...Im supposed to be taking the stuff for something OTHER than my blood sugar anyhow. The first pill makes me drowsy...kinda like I hadnt eaten in hours OR hadnt gotten enough sleep (not that I normally get much sleep but I do get enough to function on). By the second pill, Im ready to crawl into bed for the night. Hubby came home last night and took one look at me..."Honey, what's wrong?". Ok this tells me I dont look right either...gee thanks. By the 3rd pill....well I gotta apologize to Chicago...sorry hun, I did mean to come back into MSN.... At 1015pm I was in bed and by 1030pm I was snoring. Does this mean I got a good night's sleep? Hardly as I was awake half the night for one thing or another. It took me 2 hours to get fully awake today....I ate my first meal about 2 hours or so ago but didnt bother with the pill yet because I really need to get things caught up first. I *think* I got all the blogs read and pretty much commented on. I do have another 1-2 entries planned but I suspect once I take my first dose, I'll be out of it again so this will have to suffice. I've written the obgyn's office again and Im hopin to get a note in the next day or so (she's out of the office until Thursday) so I plan on staying the course until then. *sigh*

I have, however, managed to get my rides in daily...tired or not.

Calories burned: 362.0
trip miles: 10.34
ave mph: 20.68

Calories burned: 370.2
trip miles: 10.57
ave mph: 21.14

Both trips were done shortly after takin my meds and boy I was whipped afterwards. I havent taken my pill yet so Im hoping for a slightly better ride. Id better go grab a snack before I hop on the bike.

Huggssss Styxie. I hope your body adjusts to the medication soon. Being tired all the time isn't any fun at all. Hang in there - and I am SO impressed that you are still pedaling even though you are wiped out! Awesome job.

Intense Guy said...

I'm impressed too - heck I wish I was doing as well - but I haven't been.

Go Styxy go!!

Thanks you. What kills me is the fact that before I was on this med, many times I'd be up for a second ride within an hour or so after the first ride. Now, not so much. And if I have even one dose beforehand, I have to fight to get myself ON the darn thing.

I hope the doc is able to get things fixed for you, I don't like you feeling this way.

I hope they get your meds figured out soon. The way you've been feeling latetly isn't good for anyone. *hugs*

Wa-hoo Look at all those miles!

I walked up and down my stairs eleventy billion times decorating. How many miles do you think that is? haha

Iggy: Considering your's is an outdoor activity, I wouldnt expect that you'd be able to get out much, unless you took to walking in the malls first thing in the morning. Plus, your activity takes up a good deal mor time to do. It only stands to reason (especially in the weather coming) that you'd be a little less willing at times to get it done. So no worries on the occasional slide, just dont allow yourself to make it a habit.

Chicago, Alice and Tori: ~grinz~ She did ;) more on it later. I dont like feeling like that way, no how. Let's just say the wheel squeaked good and LOUD!!

Carrie: yeah...I'll have to post some totals later when I get downstairs (the spread sheet's on the laptop). Dunno what that would translate into, might wanna ask iggy... First he'd need to know how many stairs in the staircase...then double it for round trip and multiply by eleventy billion....then multiply it all out by how many inches each step is and divide it by the number of inches in a mile...

Now if ya'll excuse me, I think my brain just fractured geeking out like that!! Besides, it's time for some crunchings and munchings....
