Yes, on my lunch break despite starting out the morning in a strange way (a banana, and only a banana), I headed over to the deli and ran right to the shiny glass case. There are a lot of Avoids in that Kowalski's deli case. Lots of potato foods. Somehow day after day I have been able to avoid the temptation. Unfortunately, the chocolate ecstasy was staring me in the face. After eating mixed veggies (green beans, carrots in oil) from the hot case and swallowing it down with B Berrier juice (one of the only orange-free juices in the fridge there), I HAD to have that chocolate ecstasy. And yeah, it was ecstatic. And then I had to work again.
Oh, and I need to tell you that I worked out this weekend. Was going to jog/walk, but the treadmill was occupied. The boyfriend did an easy 15 miles on the recumbent bike and I did 25 minutes on the eliptical and about 20 minutes lifting weights (both of us). And I thought after all these months of inactivity I'd be really sore but I wasn't! That was surprising! Must be all these regenerative foods I'm eating (um, minus the chocolate ecstasy).
I have a whopping left lobe migraine headache today. Lack of sleep usually does this to me. Doesn't help that I'm in my moon right now. All that estrogen withdrawal and then BANG...head is throbbing. I have never been so relieved to get off work. I always try to solve the pain with natural methods (chamomile and lavender essential oils applied at the temples work wonders) but will resort to naproxen if all else fails.
I NEED A MASSAGE!!!! Perhaps I'll call around and get an appointment.
OK on that note, the little people crushing my head are telling me to get off the computer. It's been a while since I've had a migraine like this. I think it's very much stress related. Lots of stuff going on in my life that is giving me stress.
