I'm feeling so much better today. It's great to not have head pain anymore. The chiropractor took care of that, and boy did I hear it when my foot was put back into alignment,by him Friday, from when I twisted it two and a half weeks ago.
My lower back was still mighty sore (yes, from being put back in alignment) even this morning, but I decided to try low impact aerobics (4 miles with Leslie Sansone) and I'm glad I did. I'm feeling much more normal now.
Still have a goose egg from the curling iron falling on my head, but I was able to retouch my hair color without any problems with that.
Still not looking forward to trying shakes again since I got sick using them last week, but I will remind myself, when I take them to work, that I got sick due to raw zucchini, and I'm not using that anymore.
Started the day with pancakes- haven't had any in some time due to being allergic to wheat. This is a gluten free mix. It does have buttermilk in it, but I used anti histamine and it's not like I'll use it all the time, so I think I'm okay with it today.
Also used bread for a sandwich, though gluten free bread, so far, leaves a lot to be desired...
We have snow on the ground. I don't know why the outdoors affects me indoors as it does, but I'm dressed pretty warmly and feeling pretty good.
Been mainly catching up on some tv shows online and reading Catching Fire. :)
I hope you're having a really good Sunday.

Yeah, I threw up way worse today. At least it was AFTER work this time.
So time to get down to the figuring out of it all. What was in common two days ago (when I first threw up) that wasn't in common yesterday but was today....zucchini and celery. This is a curious thing. I looked up zucchini and interestingly found that many people have had such a reaction as I have to raw zucchini. Nausea, bloating and oftentimes the people also have vomiting. Okay then. So what is IN zucchini that could cause it? It looks like it could be oxalates. There are oxalates in zucchini, celery and spinach- which is the combination in my shake just before the worse vomiting I've done this week. SOOOO I'm thinking it could be oxalates. I don't like the list of what things have oxalates.
I already have a very limited list of foods I can eat due to allergies, including the nickel allergy...do I have to narrow it down even more? It's looking like it. Well, at the very least, zucchini, it turns out, is known for being allergenic- who'da thought? So after this awful week with it being used in my shakes and upchucking them, I am going to definitely be done with zucchini.
On a better note, I went to the chiropractor today and he took care of my foot/ankle that I had twisted two weeks ago yesterday, and the other foot I'd landed on a rock sideways with, and my neck that really got nastied up from the conk on the head by the one pound curling iron that fell 1.5 feet onto my head the other day (Boy I sound like a clutz!). Plus all the back issues that came about from all those things happening. I am sore, from everything being back in place now, but no pain is a great thing. I did have to take a couple pain killers to help bring the swelling down. Hubby and I did some walking that helped ease some of the soreness, and went out for dinner (I had some steak and veggies and sf jello). So the day turned out good.

Yeah, great topic, huh?
So here's the story, in case you're still with me on reading it.
I bent over to plug in my curling iron. When I did, the larger curling iron came flying down and hit my head behind my ear. What a sound that made inside my head. Okay, I've had concussions before. Was trying to figure out if I had one again. My pupils looked okay. I was a little shook up... maybe slightly achey in my head. Maybe a little bit queasy. I'd eaten about an hour and a half previously. I drove to work and seemed to do fine this morning with my first student. Then drove to the next work place. Had my shake real quick, as usual, and walked the walk to the bus stop. After the bus came, she and I walked to the work site. I wasn't feeling so great along the way, so I confided in her that I had hit my head and was feeling a bit queasy. So we get there and she starts working and I bend over to do something and when I stood up it felt like I needed to throw up. I tried hard to not let it happen. Almost excused myself to go to the restroom. It did stop. Then after a few more minutes it happened again. This time I knew I wouldn't make it there, so I went for a nearby trashcan. Two times in a row I threw up. All within a matter of a minute. The dirty dishes she was to wash kinda hid me from the student. There was another sink and paper towels so I took care of myself with those. The girl is such a sweetie she said it was okay when I said I was sorry. I told her now that that was over I didn't think it would happen again. Did fine after that, pretty much. It has been almost four hours since I ate, and I'd normally be pretty hungry, but I am afraid to have anything. The thought of food makes me think of the vomiting.
Anyhow, I got to thinking, does the protein shake and the water I took in before I threw up still count on the nutrition tracker? How in the world do you count for sure when this happens? Silly I suppose.
I'm having a lemon lime zevia (soda made with stevia) presently, and doing fine. Figuring it might settle my tummy some if it still needs such to happen.
I'm kind of afraid of my shakes now since it happened right after having one.
Oh the thoughts that go through your head on such a day.
And how sweet of me to share them, right? :)
SSSSOOOOOO, no exercise for me for a bit....not if I might have a concussion.

I've let "twisting my ankle" (a week and a half ago) and having a sore neck make me too lazy this last week (I was even able to run, while carrying my heavy work bag yesterday- no pain). So today I decided to catch up on what fitness minutes I had planned for my week. I did it. :) Mainly leg workouts though- and boy am I glad for Epsom salt! I had a nice bath with that stuff in it.
I think it really is best if I exercise before work each day, so that will be my goal. I've slacked off on the shapers Chris wants us to do (don't like them, hah) but plan to add those back in too.
My goal is to lose twice as much weight this week. :)

Yesterday I was cold so much of the time, for some reason. Working on my frustrating computer probably had to do with it (somewhat stressful!). Then I had to go into town and get some things done with my son in law and my daughter. That took some time. We got his computer over here and found out that my monitor doesn't work with it. Okay... I was soooo hungry by then (had not thought I'd be out so long so was well past when I should have ate)- which made me super duper tired. Anyway, hubby and I ate at their place and watched a movie with them. Then the other computer that we'd gotten for them was discovered that it had a connector that fits on my monitor (we had brought it over there to see if it would fit the new computer and then the other could come home with me if so). So he gave me the connector. I was told that they had not gotten anything off the computer- that I would need to delete and save stuff. That they didn't have any discs.
Last night all I got to do was a complete system recovery on the old computer that I couldn't seem to get to work well anyway- but maybe someone else can (thinking of offering it on freecycle), and then work on a backup of the new-to-me computer. I decided to go to bed at one this morning after putting in maybe the fifth dvd for the backup. When I got up I had to keep going with that yet.
After a bit I was finally able to start loading on some of my own stuff, and putting things on that I want to use- bookmark things and all.
Then I had to do copies of the pictures onto discs. My husband was told he could have copies too so I made two copies of each. It took 5 dvds and 1 cd to transfer all their pictures for them. The cd was of my daughter's things, so I just did five other dvds for my hubby (those pictures were of mountain trips).
He was in some of those pictures, and he'd hiked all those mountains before.
Anyway, there is still more to put on the computer and one program is not behaving right. I'm hoping the place I bought it from will resolve the issue.
I am proud of myself that I brought food for myself last night that I knew was best for me. The rest of the family had pancakes, syrup and bacon. After we left there we gassed up the car and decided to splurge on eating out for a little something (the movie was a few hours long)- I got a salad. Hubby got a sandwich and onion rings (BOY did they smell good!). We pulled over, perpendicular to parking spaces that weren't in use, and after a few minutes a police jeep stopped next to hubby's side of the car and asked if everything was all right. He said yeah, we're just having something to eat. He said okay. :)
I was not thrilled with the salad. I had no idea that it was going to have bleu cheese on it- and I'm allergic to it (don't like the taste at ALL). I tried to get as much off of it as I could...
Oh yeah (boy do I keep backtracking), I went to JCP to use a ten dollar off coupon the other day. I was pretty pleased by how I looked in some pants I tried on. Oh, the dress pants didn't fit right (not loose enough), but I liked how my body looked in them just the same. I've come a long way to say that.
