I'm really back

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Now that I've gotten used to the new meds (Topamax), I'm finally in a mental place where I'm ready to start back on an exercise program. I start today (food plan started yesterday & I meant to start exercising but time got away from me).

The upswing of migraines that I had in the Spring was so sudden and so severe that it was a huge interference in my life. My house is a mess. I work full time and I'm a part time graduate student and a newlywed and it was all I could do to keep everything going.

Sunday nite I got home from a 3 week vacation where I finished the medication increase schedule. I think I'm used to the med side effects enough now that I can pretty much function.

I used my vacation to mentally get where I needed to be to get back on my eating and exercise plan. While on vacation I did fun exercise things like bike ride, walk in the woods, and kayak. Here in St Louis I find the summer heat and humidity too oppressive to do anything other than exercise videos or gym workouts, but that won' stop me.

I gained weight before I went on the meds b/c I was so inactive due to all the migraines. I gained weight on vacation. The weight gain is behind me.

I'm back.
