Not a vlog...

Monday, August 20, 2012

I wanted to make a vlog today but I'm super duper tired, and fighting a massive headache, so sitting quietly is much more desirable right now than running my mouth about nothing. I woke up around 1 am with a migraine headache, got up to take something for it and get an ice pack, and mother nature called. (By the way, Mother Nature is the reason I have this headache in the first place). Probably got back to sleep around 1:30. Woke up 4:00, head still pounding, asked Paul to switch my ice packs (he had been up to pee), fell back asleep, woke up 4:26 with an itchy shoulder blade, been awake ever since. The headache is off and on... mostly comes "on" after my meds wear off. When it's off, I've gotten some cleaning and cooking and unpacking done (yes, I'm still unpacking!)

I am back in the 250's now. Me no likey. Perhaps I can chalk a little of it up to mother nature again, but she sure is getting the bulk of my blame today.

There is no way the gym is going to happen today with this migraine. Even if I didn't have this migraine, I would be too tired. I hate using that excuse, but I am totally tired.

In the Facebook weight loss/fitness group that I am in, we have a partnership/accountability challenge, in which we are paired up with a partner and we have to support each other through the end of September. My end of September goal is simply to hit 245, and keep it there. My current goal is to hit 235 by Thanksgiving. Approximately 15 pounds in 3 months. Doable, realistic, achievable? I think so. Maybe a little lofty, but I have to DO SOMETHING! I need someone to check on me everyday, to kick my ass if I act up, and to tell me to go to the gym. Looking forward to the challenge.

I need a nap. I'm cranky.

    I hope you are feeling better soon! I hate migraines. I used to get them (10+ a month) before I had surgery to close and remove mother nature's factory! Now I still get them but not so much only one or two a month.
    Here is hoping you find some relief!
