The training for my new job is not terribly exciting, but I am enjoying it nonetheless. It's been a great review for me on several topics, and the people in the class, both the trainer and the other students, are terrific people.
I got a massive headache bordering on a migraine last night, and I have to wonder if it was the pizza I ate Sunday night or the storm front that was moving in here. I had a headache again tonight, but it wasn't as bad as last night's, and my best friend, Anne, worked on some accupressure points and helped work out lots of it, and yoga class relieved the rest of it. Last night I was in bed by 10:30, and tossed and turned until after midnight from the pain of the headache. Drank a ton of water, hit a few pressure points, and did everything else I could think of to get rid of it. Finally I put on my meditation CD and eventually drifted off to sleep.
After the pizza Sunday night, I've been eating REALLY well. Did have a Coke yesterday, but resisted the siren's call today, and ate my blueberries and drank water throughout the afternoon. I took some rooibos (Type O) tea with me in a thermos, and sipped on that, too. Breakfast today was another banana/pineapple juice/egg protein powder smoothie, and that thing really does get me through the morning - lunchtime comes and I don't even know it. I took blueberries and cherries for snacks today, and also had a few Ghirardelli double chocolate chocolate chips, but decided I preferred the blueberries. For lunch I cut up a chicken pesto sausage over a big green salad with some pumpkin seeds, aduki beans, curried pecans, and ginger dressing on it. Yummy. Dinner was very light tonight - I ate cherries and the last two bites of my salad that I just couldn't eat at lunch, and I'm considering eating a mango now.
Tomorrow is another long day - work all day, acting seminar in the evening. My bed is calling to me....
