100-Day Challenge On Hold

Monday, October 10, 2011

So, my 100-day challenge has been officially put on hold. I had planned a restart date for later this week, but for right now it's indefinite. I'm in week 3 of a relentless miserable migraine, but at least i have an explanation for it now. I had polyps removed from my sinuses back in 2004, and they've grown back. It appears they're worse than they were then and are causing the pressure, pain and migraine. The steroid taper from last week actually reduced the sizes of the polyps, but I need surgery again. It's no big deal at all, just an endoscopic procedure over in an hour. I just won't be able to work out until I've recuperated. I was able to do some light exercise today and i'll do that as I'm able until the surgery. I'm also back on track with my diet and plan to maintain that. Thank you all for your support!

    emoticon I get migraines sometimes, but none that lasted over a day, I can't imagine having one for 3 weeks. I hope the surgery puts a stop to them, and that the pain eases up soon.

    Glad you got an answer for why it's been so bad. Do what you can until they fix it, but don't overdo it. Soon enough you'll be able to get back at it.
