I woke up feeling much better today.
Thank you all for your prayers and warm thoughts.
I'm beginning to believe that my migraines may just be stress related, meaning I will probably have them most of my life. I just need to try and make my life less stressful.
As you all know, J.D. is in the job search, and we're getting married in November, so this point of my life is just a stressful time. However, running seems to help me destress as does yoga, so I'm going to keep trying to do those frequently.
The last three months of wedding planning ares supposedly the most stressful, so I'm going to hope that J.D. and my mom can help me out with some of the stressful choices so that I can avoid headaches. The fact that his migraine only lasted a day is still an improvement over my 4-5 day migraines.
So there's always a silver lining, I guess. Today I weigh-in at Weight Watchers at Work and I might finally hit 5 pounds down since I started tracking at work. It's definitely taken long enough but with weddings, holidays, showers and etc, I just made too many excuses. Whole30 has helped me realize that I just need to eat healthy to reach my goals.
I know. What a revelation right. *slaps forehead*
But I think that Whole 30 has given me the power to realize when a small indulgence is worth it, versus having small indulgences frequently because I think I can get away with it or balance it out with my exercise and other food choices. I don't need nearly as many sweets or fried foods as I was treating myself to during the 180-190's plateau of 2012-2014.
I'm going to reach the 155 that's on my driver's license by my wedding. I KNOW I CAN.
