Today I am officially worthless.

Monday, December 10, 2012

emoticon Like I said in a status update today, I got a migraine while at work today. I used to get them all of the time, but thanks to Spark I think I'll only get one or two bad ones during my period (because I haven't had one the first three weeks I've been Sparking). But I came home, ate, took a migraine pill, laid down, and three hours later my migraine is still there (which means I'm going to take another pill which will make me feel zombie like) and I have the other awesome symptoms I have when my period is here: major fatigue, overall achiness, and just all around feeling nasty. The good news is this lasts only one or two days. The bad news is I'm literally going back in my room and staying there the rest of the evening. I will refill my water bottle enough to get my 8 cups in, but that's about it.

emoticon EA Sports Active 2 SHOULD come tomorrow, according to the FedEx lady. It's just sitting at the "destination facility" today and wouldn't be delivered today because it arrived at FedEx early. Aggravating! But truth be told I probably wouldn't have felt like really playing it today anyway. But I am going to pretend I will feel tons better tomorrow so I can try it out.

emoticon I'm returning my Stability Ball to Target. It's a POS. It barely lasted one workout I did with it (and I'm not THAT fat!!). The sad part is I kind of liked the workout with the ball, but Target didn't have any other options for Stability Balls that I could exchange it for and I really shouldn't be going elsewhere and buying one. So I guess the Ball waits until Christmas ..

emoticon Tomorrow I will video blog, regardless if I get my game or not. Because I'm going to blog about that plus one other thing. Hope everyone's day is going better than mine!

    I hate being a girl. For years, I was on BC that prevented my period and it was GLORIOUS. I take a day off of life most months, sometimes two. You are not worthless - you are a human and you can't spend EVERYday being as awesome as you are 99% of the time.

I think you are making a smart decision about the ball - I had to try three different ones till I found one that I liked. If you ask for one for the holidays, it might not be a terrible idea to suggest a gift receipt (which sounds tacky, but whatevs, it's practical) since it can be difficult to know which one will be the best fit.

    Wow, less migraines due to Spark! That is amazing. Do you know what made that happen? An allergy to something you aren't eating anymore, perhaps?

I have had very few migraines ever (and am so thankful), so you have my sympathy. :.( are never, ever worthless. emoticon

    Taking care of yourself when you are sick is not being worthless!
You will do better when you feel better.

    Sorry you're under the weather.

I love my stability ball. Have had it for around 6 years and all it ever needs is a bit of air added.

    Here's to a headache free and Cheerfull day for you tomorrow.
Headaches are noooo fun at all. Sometimes I have cluster headaches and they are horrible and they last for about 30 minutes. The awesome part is they are few and faaaarrrr between now that I have been exercising and living more healthy and also going to a chiropractor. He has helped wonders.

    Sorry the Target stability ball didn't work out - I always wondered if they were any good. I hope you feel much better tomorrow!
