thinking thin

I got woke up with a headache this morning. 3:30. I wish I could have slept longer. I have been staying up later so I will sleep later. 3:30 is just too early. Anyway, if I sit up the goes away, so here I am. I had a CT scan done last week and everything was fine. I'm thinking it's a mix of hormones and stress.

Going out to help my friend today. I am taking my son's car. Kind of scary, but I am sure it will be fine. I love this woman. I took care of her hubs until he passed. Since then I have become a member of their family. It's kind of like going on a mini vacation.

Yesterday my coworker took me out to lunch. Had lots of fun. She took a pic of me blowing out my candle and boy did I look FAT! Big puffy cheecks. Oh body image, you try to mess me up. I went to bed happy last night.

Food hasn't been really good. I am doing my best. Trying to focus on good for me food. There was a small peice of cake on bday and a bite of cake yesterday. I did choose a salad (dressing on the side) instead of eating too much bread at lunch. Still went away feeing too full. My daily walks are really my salvation! In so many ways. It's the best thing I do for myself everyday. My friend loves to eat and so today my choices may be limited as well. The most important thing I am finding out is that I am capable of not going crazy when dining out, and if I do indulge, it is not the end of the world. Trying to think like a thin person. Some days I'm better at it then others.

Oh by the way. I am so sick of this healthcare debate. Get along and do something already. Can you tell I have started my day watching the news. GRRRRR! frustrating.

keep the mood and the food real. do something already!


  1. have you had your blood pressure checked?? I had chronic headaches before i was diagnosed properly, before they had been using the smallcuff which was too small for my arm to get a adequate reading.

  2. I hope that your headache gets better soon. That is so frustrating.

    It's good you are going to help a friend who needs it. Sometimes it helps to get out of your routine for a little bit.

    Take care!

  3. Head aches and Advil and I go way back -
    then one day, behold - the headaches were gone!
    I woke up and knew *in my heart* it was going to be OK.
    It was and it is!

  4. Have a wonderful day with your friend.

    I've taken some motrin before I go to sleep to prevent waking up in the middle of the night when I feel aches and pains coming on.

    I hardly ever watch the news anymore and I don't read the paper.
    I can't do anything about 99.9999% of it anyway.
    If there's something I really need to know about it gets back to me.

  5. I hope you're feeling better soon. It's hard to be happy and upbeat when your head is pounding. Enjoy your day with your friend.

  6. Sorry to hear about the headaches. They are a bitch, aren't they? Hope you can figure out what's going on with them.

    Have a nice time with your friend.

    Oh, and I'm still trying to figure out how to eat like a thin person. Let me know if you figure that one out. hehehe

  7. Not going crazy when going out is progress, as far as I'm concerned. That's a long way from where I was at one point.

  8. I hate headaches so feel for you. I used to get them but my doctor thought they were "rebound" headaches that were brought on by taking so much motrin (to alleviate the headache). Weird! Hang in there!

  9. I rarely watch the news - I have no control over what happens, so I figure, why put myself through the ups and downs (mostly downs) of what they report?

    Hope your headache goes away and you have a great time with your friend today! And please, it's your birthday week - a little cake is fine!

  10. I'm sorry to hear about your headache. I wish I had good advice to offer, but all I can give are my hopes it will get better soon.

    I'm glad you can at least find some solace in your daily walks.

  11. Oh, I'm effing sick of the healthcare debate crap, too! Really? Is it really that hard to see that the system is f*cked up? Is it really that hard to do the right thing, and fix it even if it means you won't be able to buy that new yacht for Christmas? Gah.


Tell me what you think!
