Taking A ME Day...Again

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Monday I fought a headache most of the day. And in all reality I knew that if I didn't sleep very well, I would be in migraine territory. Which means 3 days confinement to my room (no lights, little sounds, little movement) and painkillers. So opted for a Benadryl night. This means I would be fighting off sleepiness for most of Tuesday as well as a false sleep.

It did stop the migraine from coming, but I got that false rest. Not really sleeping, not really resting, just not awake. I didn't get my migraine, but I feel no better today (Wednesday), than I did on Monday, before I took the Benadryl (Monday night; Tuesday I didn't take anything).

My knee is hurting me, and I am having issues staying balanced because of the pressure in my head and ears. So for my own safety I am staying off of the treadmill and away from the elliptical. I could go to a stationary bike, but like I mentioned before, I am just not in the mood.

On the up side, I lost 1.6 pounds from last Wednesday, and basically maintained my weight since Saturday. I am at 146.6, and it is kinda driving me crazy. I really wanted to be 145 by Monday, and I probably will be 145 point something, which works as well. I am just happy that I am finally below 150!

I feel bad not working out, but I know I need another day off. At least I am not gaining any weight.

On the nutrition front, I am not really eating great, but not badly either. Nothing is sounding good, and when I eat something that does sound good, it's not as good as I thought/remembered it should be. So I am pretty much just eating whatever we have, which is good. I will be watching my calories today since I am not exercising, but I'm sure I won't go over. I just need to make sure I get enough protein. Thank goodness for greek yogurt and my Mootopia (milk with twice the protein, and half the sugar).

Well everyone have a great day. I am going to make some tea....

    With migraines, it feels like a setback to take it easy, but it's the best choice! Hope you feel better soon!

    Take care of you and the rest will fall into place. Listen to your body and get back to the workouts when you can make it.
