Headache From H.E. Double Hockey Sticks

One of the things I hate most in life is waking up with a headache!! I am still dealing with a lot of pain in my shoulder/neck area which I think stems from the burpee challenge… (This post talks about my decision to drop out of the challenge) but I’m sure is also associated with stress, etc. I have been waking up with my neck feeling really tense and tight. I am very fortunate to be married to an awesome applied kinesiologist/chiropractor that is willing to work on me. He usually prefers me to go up to his office because all of his equipment is there… but since he had just come home from Austin, he had a lot of his stuff with him. He worked on me right after breakfast in our spare room where we have a portable chiropractic table.

2 scrambled eggs with roasted veggies and salsa – 4 pts

Protein waffle with strawberries and sugar free syrup – 5 pts

One of my Hungry Girl cookies – 4 pts

I took a long nap trying to shake off the headache… it pretty much decided to stick around for the day…

Had a serving of these while making lunch – 4 pts

Turkey pepperoni pizza with spinach, purple onions, tomatoes and mozz – 4 pts

I decided to try to get out of the house and go for a walk on the treadmill at the gym… hoping that would help???

Banana/peanut butter sandwich – 1 pt

**30 minutes of walking inclines followed by 30 minutes of elliptical** +7

Zone bar – 5 pts

Kody and I read a little more of The Hunger Games, we are such band wagoners…. we know…

Grapes – 0 pts

Maybe some sugar will help the headache?? Fruity Pebbles – 4 pts

Hearty dinner of turkey chili over roasted veggies – 4 pts

Bottom line… I still have a headache… Torry didn’t get home until 9:15 pm and as soon as he walked in the door I started bawling. He worked on me again and I’m really hoping a good night’s sleep will do the trick. Praying for no headache in the morning!!!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    Poor baby!! Headaches are the worst…wish Excedrin hadn’t been recalled. I need to get you some of my peppermint oil, it’s awesome for headaches! Also next time try warm on your feet and a cold compress on your head. Hope Torry was able to help!
