Last week was a rough week, for a few reasons I won’t get into here. One of them was that nagging feeling I was getting sick. Specifically, the feeling in the back of my throat all week. You know the one – the slightly painful, slightly scratchy one that makes you think you’re starting to get […]
There are a lot of opinions out there about New Year’s Resolutions. Recently I’ve stopped making them, but I don’t have anything against them. I figure, if they work for you, go for it – but if not, no sense in stressing yourself out over five or six new goals all at once. Since […]
I just went over three weeks without migraines. That’s the longest I’ve gone since I was in graduate school. My longest streak was actually four weeks while I was writing my thesis in the spring of 2014, go figure! The past three weeks haven’t been easy, and there have been a lot of changes. But […]
Y’all, it’s hard to be nice to yourself. The other night, I was sitting down to eat my delicious homemade tacos with chicken, beans, and lettuce on a tortilla, and in the midst of the meal I thought to myself, “You know, if I were really being healthy, I would have made these on lettuce […]
Yesterday I cried at my neurologist’s office because I am just so dang frustrated with my migraines. I’ve had at least one to two per week for the last 12 weeks. In my mind, I say to myself, “Well that’s not that bad, there are people who have it so much worse.” But you know […]
Alternate Title: The Week it All Fell Apart This week was really tough. It started with vertigo so bad I couldn’t stand up or keep anything down and a debilitating migraine, just 24 hours before I had to head out on my first of a few weeks of consecutive travel. How I felt: Stressed. Sick. […]
I’ve officially made it 14 days on the Whole30! I have to say, I sure picked a tough time to start. Between office events, general stress, and getting ready to travel, there has been a lot of temptation to cheat, but at the same time I figure that’s all the more reason I should be […]
I’ve officially made it through one week of the Whole30. Honestly, I did not believe I could make it a whole week. Part of why I embarked on this journey was simply to prove to myself that I could do it. After a really tough, stressful week, I feel like I’ve got nowhere to go […]
I am just finishing up day 3 of my Whole30 (1/10th of the way there!) and so far I’m doing okay. The first day was rough: I had a pretty bad headache all day and it is very likely it was just from life as I know it, but I do think I’ve had a […]
I like to think I’m a pretty healthy person. I don’t drink soda, I usually pack a (pretty healthy) lunch, and I work out regularly. Yet still I struggle with migraines and lately I’ve been feeling in a bit of a rut, and getting pretty exhausted by the end of the day. I’ve tried a […]
