Yesterday was my 67th birthday. Still having my headaches (4-1/2 weeks so far) and had been down and getting depressed because I was having trouble getting my exercises in like I should have been doing - my weight going up and down for a while now.
Well, to make a long story short, my husband and I went out for my free birthday breakfast at Denny's and yes, I did, I had the build-your-own grand slam (healthy wheat pancakes, eggs, turkey bacon, sugar free/low sugar pancake syrup and oatmeal) and, as if that wasn't enough we went to Tony Roma's for my free dinner there - - yes, again I blew it and had the Roma original ribs, baked potato, broccoli, unsweetened ice tea and bread. It was extremely good and I enjoyed every bite. I started feeling a little guilty but I was able to talk myself out of beating myself up over it. It was my day and not something I've really done in probably a year.
Continued from 10/21/13: BUT, today is another day and another fresh start on my weight loss goals. I still have the terrible pressure as if my head was in a vise and someone was still cracking the handle on it but I had made up my mind that I was going to get some exercise in other than just walking twice a day. So, my eating is back to normal, So far I have walked 1 mile, done 2 sets of 15 of wall pushups, 1 set of 15 arm curls with band, and 1 set of 50 hip flexions and yes, I still have the pressure in my head. I will be glad when I can get in to see the neurologist (the day before Thanksgiving) and until then, I will be working on my eating habits and exercising again as much as I can throughout each day.
I'm ok. I refuse to get down on myself because of yesterday. I can and will do this with God's help.
