So I thought I had a handle on the migraines, somewhat.
Monday, I over slept because my head hurt that morning, and then that evening it hit, and it hit HARD. That was one of the worst ones I've had in a while. Everything was making me nauseous. Light was bringing tears to my eyes. I helped matt and his dad hunt a black snake in the dark (it was up in the frame of Matt's truck. stupid thing won, we finally gave up) but I got so dizzy I had to go in the air. I laid down on the couch and had tears in my eyes. Matt made me something to eat, brought me iced tea, and turned off all the lights. I took another pain pill and he helped me to bed. I fell asleep about 11:30pm and woke up at 4:30 the next afternoon. WHaaaaat!?! Sometimes when my head gets really bad I just sleep. My body just shuts down and nothing wakes me up.
Yesterday I slept in a little, went to my mom's to see her since I missed work, then went home and took a painkiller because the headache was coming back. Today it's just been an off and on again headache.
Most of my issue today is freaking period related. UGH I started Friday at the gym. No biggie, since I keep my mooncup in my purse when it gets close. My stomach is so bloated my gym shorts are tight around my midsection. everything feels swollen (all I drink is water and tea, stupid water retention)
So between the cramps, bloating, fatigue, and migraines, I am just ready to rip out my uterus and say I AM DONE. Plus my dad is sitting across the desk from me smoking and I FREAKING HATE CIGARETTE SMOKE. He is the most inconsiderate person I know, no joke.
Okay, I think I am done complaining. just needed to put my thoughts somewhere.

I feel like my blogs lately have been more pictures and links so I wanted to slow down for a minute to reflect and ask some questions.
To start, I do rather well on my calories during the week, but I seem to binge on the weekends. I think it is the lack of structure. I sleep until all hours of the day, eat at strange hours, and don't exercise. I know I should add more structure and get this under control. I hate the idea of undoing an entire week's worth of hard work being spent on two days at home.
Last night, we had frozen Pizza for dinner. Jack's Pepperoni, as an occasional dinner isn't so bad. 1/3 of the pizza is a serving, and being pizza, the calories aren't outrageous for the serving size. NOT healthy or recommended by any means, but the lesser of evils when it comes to frozen pizza. But, unfortunately, we went with out favorite taste wise! Red Baron.
Not to mention, we had Mexican food Saturday. I usually do rather well, ordering vegetarian fajitas, not cooked in oil, I don't eat the tortillas.. but I ordered a chimichanga this time.
Oh well. Can't undo what is done, I can only start fresh each meal. (NOT each day! One bad meal doesn't mean you can binge throughout the day! It does matter!!)
On a different note, my best friend, Brittany, got me to start watching season (series?) 1 of Doctor Who. OH. MY. GOSH.
I AM IN LOVE.
I just finished the first season, and I seriously cannot get enough. I am trying to find the second one so I can start it. OHOH I need to find a Who workout to do during..
Oh, my question for the other spark ladies out there. How do you deal with bloating during that TOM? I drink my water, and do my work outs, but man oh man. my stomach feels huge during. So uncomfortable.
Okay, tmi, but thanks!
I guess I am off to the gym.
edit - *ahem* Doctor, NOT dr. ^_^ EEEKKKK on to series 2!

This absolutely disgusts me in every way. As if there aren't enough people of all ages and of both sexes battling eating disorders already, this adds fuel to the fire. They do it because they think their bodies aren't good enough. Let's just make it worse by telling them if they're not a certain size, they're not welcome in the store. jerks.

So I'm sitting at work, not much is going on, and I have these random thoughts I wanted to throw out.
Blame the coffee, idk.
I'm thinking when I get to a weight that I'm more comfortable with, and I get some upper body strength from weight lifting/strength training, I am going to look into finding the closest pole dancing classes. Seriously. Have you SEEN the upper body strength it takes to do those moves? I'm not talking about stripping down to my skivvies and shaking it for singles; I'm talking strictly to gain the athleticism. I admire pole dancers - whether they're topless or fully dressed- because it's not something anyone could just walk up to a pole and do. Jenyne Butterfly is the perfect example of a Strong Pole Dancer I admire. LOOK at her!
It pops up a warning because it is pole dancing. I promise, she is wearing shorts and a sports bra that shows less than a bathing suit. Just letting you know in case that would make you uncomfortable for some reason. Fingers crossed that sparkpeople doesn't think I'm trying to post anything inappropriate!
Another dancer I admire is Leigh Ann. It's a little more risque, so I won't link it. If you want to see her just youtube search "Leigh Ann Pole Dance Diamond".
in other news....
no, well I guess that was all I had to talk about lol!!!

I'm tickled to say May started off good for me, unlike the rest of my week had! Was up and at work on time, head wasn't hurting too bad. I'm going to make May my...well, month... haha
So, you may have seen me post about No Weigh May earlier this week. What this is, is a challenge I found on Tumblr. Basically, it is to remind us that while we're on a weight loss journey, we want to gain certain things as well. We are gaining back our health, and freedom from the extra baggage (physical, mental, and emotional).
Along the way to a healthier size and weight, we tend to get loss in the numbers. I have often found myself obsessing over the pounds gone/left and forget to look at the accomplishments I have made! I can go further on the elliptical than a week ago! That's an accomplishment that shouldn't be over looked, but it often is.
So with No Weigh May, it is simple. Weigh once on May 1st, take measurements, and take a LOT of before pictures.
Throughout the month, focus on eating right, drinking plenty of water, and getting in touch with your body. You might start noticing progress in other ways, (i.e. pants getting baggy, face looking slimmer, etc) but don't get on the scale! Just keep doing what you're doing!
Come June 1st you will step on the scale, take measurements, and the same set of pictures. Put them side by side and take a look at the difference!
My May 1st weight: 222.6 pounds.
I'll update and add my measurements later! Then on June 1st, I'll share my pics!!!
HAPPY NO WEIGH MAY!!! Good Luck!
