Headache From Hell

Yesterday I got the headache from hell.  I did not drink any coffee or caffeine for the first time in forever and maybe that is what sliced my head open and caused it to relentlessly pound.

Usually it’s the opposite.  I drink a little too much cold brew or I convince myself that a 2nd cup of coffee won’t hurt me.  And then a few hours later I feel like absolute DEATH.  I think this time around the culprit was stress.  So there’s my proof, stress causes a lot of unnecessary grief and also health problems.

I was so bummed because I had just gotten through an entire week of being head-ache free.  Before that I had a constant headache since September.

I just need to remind myself that I am aiming for PROGRESS not perfection.

Yeah, it sucks that I got that splitting headache, but I am so glad that today is a new day and that damn headache went away!

I deviated from my routine over the past 5 days because we were installing hardwood floors downstairs.

What did I miss?

  1. I didn’t run the past 5 days because our garage was a construction zone and we had company over.
  2. I didn’t eat as many veggies as I usually do.
  3. I consumed too much caffeine and probably got dehydrated.
  4. I ate whatever I wanted to eat.

What did I continue to do these past 5 days?

  1. Daily meditation.
  2. Daily yoga.

I am glad that I made it a point to meditate and practice yoga even though I wanted to skip and I felt really lazy.  I think keeping those two positive elements in my life allowed me to retain my sanity and bounce back more quickly.

So here I am ready to continue the journey that I started.  My meditation sessions might be a little shorter than 20 minutes and I am okay with that for now because I have an overactive mind.

I have also decided to make today a power clean day!
