Q #162: Why do multi-day headaches always seem to accompany major dietary changes?

I didn't post anything yesterday because the headache I had last night, and then I've got one that's ebbed and flowed most of the day (though I noticed it a lot more after my time on the elliptical trainer). I'm no stranger to headaches. I've had plenty of migraines in my time (though as my … Continue reading Q #162: Why do multi-day headaches always seem to accompany major dietary changes?

Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

I've been offline the past several days because I had a hard time concentrating through the pain. I hated it because I wanted to read posts and catch up on what has been happening. Well, some interesting things helped knock my migraines and eye pain out, things I didn't expect. When I couldn't stand looking … Continue reading Getting past a week of migraines through rest, yard work, & glasses… who knew?

Jumped on the exercise train… again. Some harsh & enlightening lessons are coming out of it.

This was something I'd been itching to do. I believe it's the third day now, and if that's the case, then it should be easier to keep this habit going from here on out... long as I'm consistent on my new schedule. I'm doing myself some favors in this exercise plan by not going overboard … Continue reading Jumped on the exercise train… again. Some harsh & enlightening lessons are coming out of it.

I’m almost at the point where I will be free to start over… & I’m wondering how to start.

It's been a pretty insane little week with people coming in and me trying to just get through waiting for the newbie to get done with training. I have to work tomorrow and I wish I didn't because I'm getting more headaches more often and I just want to be away from work. It kinda … Continue reading I’m almost at the point where I will be free to start over… & I’m wondering how to start.

Revisiting my plans to quit my job: to jump without a safety net, or not?

A few days ago, down in the dumps and letting things wash over me, I thought about really quitting my job. Now, I'm of the opinion that I need to hand in my two weeks notice today. Without a safety net. Without a job lined up and already ready to go. Because all I know … Continue reading Revisiting my plans to quit my job: to jump without a safety net, or not?

Stevia & me don’t get along; or, a minor setback in trying to be sugar-smart.

I admit, I love my orange juice. It's one of the few things I tend to crave when coffee or tea just aren't doing it, and especially when I'm really thirsty and sick. I'm not a huge soda person (most of the time, anyway), so orange juice is really a morning thing I love to … Continue reading Stevia & me don’t get along; or, a minor setback in trying to be sugar-smart.

The “Last Minute Move” Weight-Lifting and Cardio Workout.

Glad I had all day at home. Spent the day going back and forth between packing the last stuff I have in the house and watching segments from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I am still working hard on getting out the door by mid-morning tomorrow and setting up in the garage. I had … Continue reading The “Last Minute Move” Weight-Lifting and Cardio Workout.

Getting motivated to exercise when you’re so freaking tired…

I don't know why, exactly, but I've noticed a significant drain on myself lately that's just getting worse. And as I put in my rather vague symptoms (forget horror novels--WebMD's the scariest damned thing you can look at), I can see some obvious sense. The difficulty is in doing it. How the hell do you … Continue reading Getting motivated to exercise when you’re so freaking tired…
