Day 971- Day 23 of Whole30...When Migraines Attack

Today was a pretty crappy day.

I woke up with a migraine and just felt like giving up. I was so sure that Whole30 would be the cure for my migraines, and yet, now 3 weeks of clean eating, and I wake up with the same stabbing pain behind my left eye.

I'm not sure I'm ever going to get rid of these things. And that makes me sad. I have improved so many parts of my life and yet started getting migraines a year ago, after losing 90 pounds. I just feel so defeated by these headaches. I couldn't go to work because I was nauseous. So I went back to bed and slept til noon.

I did get to go to get my BodPod reading redone and I was right. I went from 29.8% body fat in November to 29.4% when he used the correct lung volume. Not a huge decrease but moving in the right direction.

So now I'm probably going to go to bed early in an attempt to lose this headache. Even taking my migraine medicine this morning, it continued throughout the day. So I'm really hoping a good night's sleep will really get rid of it.

While I could have thrown in the towel with Whole30 and said, I only did it to prevent migraines and I really want a piece of chocolate, even though that won't solve my migraine either...I didn't.

I'm going to see this Whole30 through. But it's back to the drawing board in terms of migraines.
