Taking A ME Day...Again
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
Monday I fought a headache most of the day. And in all reality I knew that if I didn't sleep very well, I would be in migraine territory. Which means 3 days confinement to my room (no lights, little sounds, little movement) and painkillers. So opted for a Benadryl night. This means I would be fighting off sleepiness for most of Tuesday as well as a false sleep.
It did stop the migraine from coming, but I got that false rest. Not really sleeping, not really resting, just not awake. I didn't get my migraine, but I feel no better today (Wednesday), than I did on Monday, before I took the Benadryl (Monday night; Tuesday I didn't take anything).
My knee is hurting me, and I am having issues staying balanced because of the pressure in my head and ears. So for my own safety I am staying off of the treadmill and away from the elliptical. I could go to a stationary bike, but like I mentioned before, I am just not in the mood.
On the up side, I lost 1.6 pounds from last Wednesday, and basically maintained my weight since Saturday. I am at 146.6, and it is kinda driving me crazy. I really wanted to be 145 by Monday, and I probably will be 145 point something, which works as well. I am just happy that I am finally below 150!
I feel bad not working out, but I know I need another day off. At least I am not gaining any weight.
On the nutrition front, I am not really eating great, but not badly either. Nothing is sounding good, and when I eat something that does sound good, it's not as good as I thought/remembered it should be. So I am pretty much just eating whatever we have, which is good. I will be watching my calories today since I am not exercising, but I'm sure I won't go over. I just need to make sure I get enough protein. Thank goodness for greek yogurt and my Mootopia (milk with twice the protein, and half the sugar).
Well everyone have a great day. I am going to make some tea....
