the right foot – not to be confused with the left foot

i had a good dinner last night.
i mention this because lately my appetite has been next to nil – so i sucked back my chicken and green beans and felt lovely. i don’t even think i chewed.

not only that – but i slept last night. i got seven hours of sleep last night! seven people!!!!!!
in my world 5 hours is crazy talk – so imagine how happy i was with 7 hours of uninterrupted snoozing.
i woke up with a very sore belly though???? could it be i was doing crunches in my sleep? that would be awesome lol.
alas i just think it could have been my crazy kitten using my belly as a trampoline.

the best thing about this morning? i woke up without a headache.
usually that’s the first thing that’s present when i wake up. a pounding headache.
i’ve been dealing with headaches a lot longer than i think i should be. i can count on one hand how many days of the month i don’t have a headache.
i am pretty sure i am on week 3 at the moment – of a constant, never ending headache.
yes – i have a doctors appt at the end of the month – i’m gonna get him to check my head out.
this has been on and off for over 6 months…i don’t think i can handle a headache much longer.

i used to and occasionally still suffer from migraines – but nothing major. i know all my headache triggers – like not enough coffee/not enough food or bad food/rain on the way/one too many glasses of red/hormones/wearing baseball caps.
none of the above apply to why i have a headache for this long. i get a day or 2 of peace – and then it’s back again for another 2-3 week run. it’s just insane.
but for one glorious hour i was completely headache free. as i was driving in to work – i felt the familiar pain setting in. ugh. it’s enough to make me crazy – no joke.
advil liquid gels are my best friend.

and so the headache has returned.

i started off my day on the right foot. i was happy and energetic…grabbed my 45 cent coffee from McDonalds – yessss! i didn’t even get pissed off when one of those student driver cars were in front of me and were afraid to turn out of the parking lot. ok so i was a little pissed – but c’mon i waited behind him for about 5 minutes…waiting for him to not be scared to turn out onto a fairly empty road.
ugh.

anyways…i am going to continue my day on the right foot – headache or not dammit.

happy tuesday to you!

pampered bee

during my hell with what felt like a broken neck and head…
i was desperate.
my doctor put me on these pain killers that barely even put a dent in my pain….
i was becoming cranky (more cranky than i naturally am lol) and i was just so tired of it all.
do you even know how much a headache takes out of you?

i decided to treat myself to a spa day.
i thought a nice massage would take away the stress…even if it was momentarily.
i needed a break, and i needed it yesterday.

So i called the spa…and the earliest they could get me in was….today.
2 weeks after i called.

I have been headache free for a couple of days now.
i went to bed with a massive headache on Tuesday and woke up Wednesday pain free.
yay for me!!!
this was the longest running headache i have ever had.  three and a half weeks.
three and a half weeks people!
that’s enough to drive anyone insane i am sure.
my neck seems perfectly fine now too…however this eye twitch i developed at the same time the headache came on needs to go before i rip my own eye ball out.
i wonder how many random people i’ve spoken to think i am hitting on them.
ya know, a little smile…a little uncontrollable wink 🙂

so today i am booked for a half hour Swedish massage, a 40 minute manicure and a 60 minute pedicure. (my little feet are so excited!)

oh maahhhh lawd….i cannot wait.

the first and only time i ever had a massage was probably just over a year ago.
a hot stone massage gifted to me for my birthday.
i can’t believe i let so much time pass.

i will think of you all fondly as i’m getting pampered.
this is just what a goddess needs
a full on pamper day…

what a great start to a weekend!

wonder drug

as much as i hate taking pills
these pills have been my miracle drug.
once the whole stoner feeling passes that is…
that...is not fun.

after the pill kicked in…i felt like myself.
very minimal headache and neck pain…tolerable.

so i took advantage of this feeling and went straight to the gym.

i got almost 2 hours in!!!
the scary thing was, i probably could have kept going!!!

i did a whole hour on the elliptical, while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer –
i’ve never seen one episode of that show…but i watched the whole thing at the gym
couldn’t tell you what the hell it was about…but i watched it lol

i totally got my sweat on.
woohoo!

i drove with my music really loud
did my car dancing…
life was good!

till the pill wore off…yuck.

i took one more at night…and got the best nights sleep EVER
i slept the whole night through –  which never happens

today i am feeling better.  still can’t really turn my neck
but i am going to see if i can make this a pill free day.

woohoo to feeling normal!

oh my lord

i have to talk to people on the phone and be all serious…and i just want to giggle like a school girl.

is this the new diet pill? cause i so do not have an appetite.

lucky me…i get to go work out after work.

but hey…i don’t have a headache anymore lol

getting older

i don’t mind getting older
i am actually quite enjoying it!  well, most of it.

if i could just have my 20 year old body and skin again, i would be perfect!!!

the older i get…the more my perception changes.

i see the changes in myself.  although gradual…how do you NOT change as you mature?

i know now, that i wouldn’t have spent a second of my emotions on all the stuff that seemed tragic and dark when i was younger.

i know that i am more than my waist size, and that the colour of my hair is whatever the box says it is.

i know that words like blood pressure and cholesterol and heart disease are more than just words…they are reality as you get older.

enter my doctors appointment yesterday.

i was never called with any results from my physical back in November.  No news is good news right?

well i went to see him yesterday…for a headache i have not been able to shake in 2 weeks…
and i was told that my cholesterol level was the same as the year before.

we both thought for sure, with the weight loss, working out, healthy living stuff…that it would have gone down.  it actually stayed the same.

i don’t know what the number means.  it just started to be part of my life as of last year.
my cholesterol level showed it’s face for the first time last year.
6.4 is the number.  that’s all Greek to me.
it was inevitable…i always knew that.  it’s genetic, and i have a big family…all who seem to have high cholesterol.
so i get my moms hips and my dad’s cholesterol issue.
thanks there universe 🙂

anyways…it’s nothing to panic over.  nothing at all.
he recommended a low fat diet.
blahhhhhhhh
low fat???  what is low fat????
i have been spoiled by my low carb life, i just could not imagine changing the way i eat.
it wouldn’t hurt to look in to it i suppose…but i feel like a kid right now…i wanna stomp my foot, yell NO…and run away.

there is room for improvement…i know this.  sometimes i take advantage of eating low carb and eat things that aren’t the healthiest for me.
i could always cut those things out…

who knew that one day i would have to worry about a number…that’s not on my scale?
not that i am worried…i just want to lower that number.

although…i’ve got “better than normal” blood pressure.
actually, perfect he said.
who knew that would make me feel so happy and relieved???

lol…as i said…i really don’t mind getting older…
but there are just some things i could really do without.

like low fat.

i don’t wanna!!

a vision of healthy

i am not
i am a hot mess!
lol

it’s going on two weeks that i have had this bloody headache…
seriously i need a break from it please
the universe decided to give me a break…by having me sleep funny last week and wake up with a broken neck.
it took the extreme pain in my head away that’s for sure.
thanks Universe…you rock.

i cannot turn my head either way…i look funny…
but i assure you i am not laughing.

have you tried changing lanes when you really can’t move your head???

to add insult to injury…i feel like i just worked out my upper abs for 24 hours straight
either that or have been punched in the gut repeatedly.

i’m a mess i tell you…a bloody mess.

enough about me…how are you??? lol

monday is kicking MY ass…

i woke up this morning to no water.

apparently they turned it off around 4am.  it’s 2pm right now and i am still waiting.  they said it would be on at 1pm…and again…i am still waiting.

a water main burst…and i am assuming it’s pretty bad.

So i obviously am working from home today.  there is no way in hell i am going to work without a shower looking and smelling  perdy.

and there is no way in hell i am working out without a shower to fall into at the end of it all.

and…i have a headache.  the mother of all headaches.  the kind of headache that has the potential of turning into a nasty migraine.  drugs please!!

So…i ain’t kicking ass yet…Monday apparently is kicking mine…and good.

meh, there’s always Tuesday.
