pizzas and headaches.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

WARNING, rant coming on... emoticon

so here i sit with a huge headache emoticon ... it has been this way, most of the day. i don't know if it was the unstable weather or the people smoking right outside the laundry mat, but wow, does it hurt. i get migraines, but this one just seems to be a bad headache. emoticon

while i was sitting at the laundry mat, watching my clothes tumble around in the dryer, and reading a very old magazine, i suddenly had this terrible craving for pizza emoticon ! i was determined to get some on the way home. BUT much to my surprise, once i got close to the pizza joint, i kept going! emoticon . haHA! i did it, woo-hoo for me! i go home, make myself some healthy lunch choices emoticon emoticon emoticon and preceeded with my day. as the day went on, my headache increased. maybe i am a little dehydrated, it is rather humid out, so i got a big glass of water. emoticon then, i thought, i didn't sleep well, maybe i need a nap. emoticon , so i rested. i woke up thought i might just need some meds, so i took something for it, with another huge glass of water. emoticon , headache was still there! emoticon then, my daughter came home, and visions of pizza danced in my head! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

i couldn't stand it any longer, so i went and got my favorite pizza (jet's medium cheese only pizza... )FOUR slices, and dipping sauce, later... now i feel awful! emoticon i still have the headache, and now i have TONS of GUILT to go with it! i know, a slip up here and there is okay, but this past week, has been a total STRESSFUL week, i have exercised, but my eating habits took a dive, and i am supposed to weight myself tomorrow! what was i thinking when i was eating the pizza??? emoticon

on top of that, i still have the headache, so i know i can't exercise tonight. i CAN exercise tomorrow, but then i do three 13 hour shifts in a row, so i know i won't be working out any of those days! i am just frustrated with myself. pizza is one of my weaknesses, especially when i am stressed or hurting...

hopefully, now that i wrote out my feelings and that stress and pain are a couple of triggers, i can learn from this mistake. although, i have been told, it is only a mistake if you don't learn from it. i think i have learned... don't know if i am gonna give in, but maybe not eat as much?

dreading getting on the scale tomorrow, i deserve whatever number there is, i just don't want to focus too much on it...

    I would wait a couple of days before I stepped on the scale - don't stress over it. Give an extra day for the pizza to go! emoticon

    Last time I had a killer headache I actually went to workout in hopes that getting my body moving and getting some endorphins in the blood stream would help. It did. It didn't go away completely but it took about 50% and I felt better overall. Maybe try strength training or a brisk walk tonight?

    I get migraine munchies too.

    Try an ice pack on the head when you lay down. That helps me sometimes.

    Feel better soon.

    Pizza in and of itself is not so bad a food. It's the high fat meats that make it a killer. I have found mushrooms, onions and green peppers to make a satisfying combination (not as good as if you add sausage and pepperoni, but that like multiplies the calories by two and a half)

    Make Today a Great Day!
