Thursday Headache Blues

14 Jul

It’s almost the weekend!  Yay!  Today so far, hasn’t gone according to plan.  The past few days I’ve had a pretty bad headache, but hate taking medication.  I figured if I got a great night of sleep I would wake up feeling fantastic.  I woke up at 10:30pm and my head was still pounding.  I woke up at 12:30am and my head was still pounding.  When I woke up at 5:00am and it was still throbbing, Keith and I decided to skip the morning workout so I could try and sleep a little bit more.  An hour and a half later I woke up with my head still pounding.  Coffee wasn’t sounding good to me, so I drank a 1/2 glass of Coke.  We never have pop in our home, but we were told to bring pop to a doggie birthday party a while back and since no one drank any, it has been sitting in our outside fridge for months.  To my surprise, it kind of did the trick.  My headache is so less sever right now and I think it is due to the little bit of caffeine that I drank.  I am hoping the headache is kicked to the curb as I have a lot to get done today. 

For breakfast this morning, Keith and I whipped up one of our old favorites we haven’t had in probably a good year.  English muffin breakfast sandwiches.  We used light high fiber English muffins, uncured not nitrates or nitrites ham, organic American cheese slices and brown eggs.  It tasted fabulous.  In fact it tasted so good, I didn’t even think to take a picture of it until my plate was clean!  I have a feeling we will be eating one tomorrow as I’m already excited to eat another one.  : )

Yesterdays Eats looked like this:

  • Breakfast-  Small Banana Walnut muffin pre-workout, Peach Chobani post-workout, 1/2 Robeks Smoothie
  • AM Snack-  1/2 Robeks Smoothie   
  • Lunch-  Low Cal, High Fiber Bean, Rice and Cheese Burrito with Hot Sauce
  • AM Snack-  Organic Red Delicious Apple
  • Dinner-  Flank Steak Taco with Cheese and Hot Sauce

I went grocery shopping yesterday to stock up on fruit and vegetables and can’t wait to make some good eats over the weekend.  My diet has seriously been lacking vegetables.

On the Agenda for today:

  • Work / Train Clients
  • Paystubs for our Trainers
  • Target
  • Costco
  • Vacuum the House (Quincy’s hair is everywhere, I never knew a puppy could shed so much)
  • Grill Burgers, I got some lean local Grass Fed Beef yesterday and have been Craving a Burger!
  • Walk the Pup
  • Possibly, if I have time, squeeze in a quick 45 minute workout to make up for skipping it this morning

The above it why I really need my headache to stay away! 

Since I don’t have any pics to put into this post that are related to it, here are some random ones for your enjoyment!  : )

I would do anything to get to go back to Mexico this year and watch the sunset!



and eat some good chips and salsa!


And finally, I can’t wait for the Holidays to get here!  I can’t wait to pull out all our decorations!  It always feels ultra cozy at home during that part of the year!


Question:  What are your cures for lingering headaches?

    Ugh..headaches are no fun at all.

    For me, a light workout helps (cardio that is) and, yes, also some caffeine in whatever form.

    Mexico sunsets and chips and salsa sound great right about now!

    I am so sorry about the headache! I drink a lot of water and sometimes it helps.. I also try to stay away from sugar and sweeteners because I am one of those people who gets sugar headaches

      I think it might be my pillow? That is the only thing I can think of, plus a few days ago I woke up with a crick in my neck. I am going to go look for new ones over the weekend.

    Booo. For headaches. I normally take exedrine which works wonders. Wow I love you wedding dress. It is beautiful. This year has flown by so quickly seriously.
