So, I think it might mean I'm too stressed if I've had a headache every day this week. Now besides the fact that headaches are no fun, this has really been impacting my attempts to live a healthy lifestyle. When I'm at work and I have a headache, I seem to have this idea that maybe food will fix the problem, so I eat. Then when I finally get home, I just want to go straight to bed which means I make no attempt to work out and usually stuff my face with whatever is most easily accessible before I go to bed. This means bad things for my waistline and probably isn't really helping the headache. I really need to find better ways to cope when I have a headache.
However, on a brighter note, I do not have a headache today. I started getting a small twinge like a headache beginning mid-morning, but I seem to have fixed it by taking ibuprofen before it could get too bad. So, all in all, I've had a pretty good day so far. I haven't gone too crazy food-wise, although I should have said no to the chocolate at lunch. I had a lovely walk to school this morning. It was a humid, blustery day, but quite mild, so I really enjoyed it. After work, I am planning on heading into the city to meet my sister for a bodies exhibit in Fanueil Hall and dinner afterwards. She's working at Mass General now, so that makes meeting up with me much easier than when she was working down in Plymouth. I'm very grateful for that. Anyway, I'm looking forward to it and I have up to 600 calories that I could eat today, so I should be able to find something reasonable when we're out to eat and avoid going over my calories for the day.
I'm hopeful that it'll be a good weekend. I have a fun event to go to tomorrow morning. I'll be dressing up in my 18th century clothes and visiting with some friends at the Old South Meeting House as we discuss the tax on tea, while the public looks on... Should be fun. I haven't yet decided if I want to be pro-tea or anti-tea. I probably should be pro-tea because I've taken to consuming copious amounts of tea lately. It feels so nice to have a hot cup of tea, so who cares about having to pay a 3% tax on it. It's only a few extra pennies, what's the difference? right?
Hope everyone has a fun weekend!
