Vrooom! Restarting that engine
Friday, January 04, 2013
The engine meaning me and my iffy starter motor, if you want to take the analogy further.
Level 1 of RIP30 just about knocked me out on Wednesday. So did my usual stretching routine with the 30 second plank--which, I have discovered, is much *easier* when I hold myself up from my hands and not my elbows! Elbows are supposedly easier! I guess not!
It hasn't helped I've had a three day (this is the third day) tension headache. There might be some visual migraine in there, too. But I'm not sure. Ah, what is a visual, ie ocular migraine, you ask? It's when you get the visual auras in your eyes, but usually none of the migraine *pain*. BUT, with me, when I do get them, my brain slows down, I speak slower, and my brain simply doesn't process information at its usual rate. Meaning, there's still a "brain storm" going on, but I don't feel it.
In any case, the extended tension headache/whatever it is made me cancel out on my very much looked forward to Dog Assessments volunteer hours at the local rescue shelter. Majorly bummed about that. Just couldn't get any good sleep last night because I couldn't get comfortable with the headache and neck tension. Ugh. (I'm starting to think I need a new eye glasses prescription...wonderful...tha
t's going to have to wait)
Today, if I can recover a bit from the headache after taking more Ibuprofen, I'll do a workout. Maybe not RIP30. Maybe kettlebell with Paul Katami. Or kickboxing. I've no idea. Just trying to keep my interest up.
Okay, ouch. Need to go do piled up dishes before they drive me nuts.
