sinus headaches are no fun

Thursday, August 16, 2012

Since I've been back in Colorado, I have developed the worst sinus headaches this week! I know it is because of the change in climate after spendng 2 weeks in Virginia, and now I am in the dry weather again. But ugh so annoying. My headache was so bad yesterday that the two advil I took around 2pm didnt help AT ALL. My sinuses felt so swollen that it hurt to even open my eyes all the way!! Needless to say, I did not get in a workout after work as planned - I went home, found some sinus congestion medicine, and rested all night. The medicine has helped though. I still have a sinus headache, but it is atleast more manageable today, and I am taking my over-the-counter congestion medicine to keep it to a minimum so that I can get my workout in after work today - it is leg day, and my legs certainly need a good working out!!

J got confirmation from his boss that he MUST take a vacation soon!! Hooray!! I am really pushing for a trip to Disney World - it is the happiest place on Earth!!! I priced it already, with the military discounts, and it is totally doable, so hopefully we can do it!! We are thinking of going either Labor Day weekend or two weekends after that. But that means no unnecessary spending between now and our vacation - I lost my Coach sunglasses and I really want to buy a new pair, but I think for now I will just have to settle for a generic sunglasses brand. Hopefully we can figure our vacation plans out this weekend before airfare goes up!

I started using MyFitnessPal to track. I got an account a while ago, but havent really used it. But I am in need of some additional motivation. I was trying to join new teams here on Spark, but it seems like all the teams I wanted to join have been inactive for months to a year! Really?? So I have some friends on MFP and I REALLY like the food database!! I cant really figure out the communities stuff though. I also joined fitocracy for some fitness motivation, but havent had a chance to explore it yet because it wont work on my office computer - bummer! So if you are on MFP, friend me! RaineMarie :)

    Hey Raine Marie. Wow I actually did not even have a SparkPeople but after reading through your little article I though, man let me just register for this so that we can talk about your sinus headache, i must say it took me ages to finally get everything registered. Anyways how is the sinus headache going now?
