My headache was still very present in the morning. I snoozed for almost 30 minutes. I was finally able to drag myself out of bed. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do any intense workouts so I tried a yoga for migraines video and drank some green juice to see if it would help.
By lunch, my headache was gone! Something amazing happened after lunch, I did not get the afternoon slump! I actually had energy for the rest of the day. I had so much energy I actually was able to finish my first two blog posts. I am hoping to get into a rhythm of posting every morning for the previous day.
I went to the gym after work and did 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical. I am struggling with starting to workout again. It’s very humbling being out of breath after only 2 minutes cardio. I know the next 90 days are going to be really hard but I believe I will be in significantly better place after.
I have been using the MyFitnessPal app to track my food. It was really time consuming on Day 1. It is very informative. There is a breakdown of nutrients and I am finding it really helpful. I initially downloaded so if I have an IBS flare up, I can easily know what caused it. It is making much more conscious of what I am eating.
My fitness journal also arrived a day early, so I quickly added my goals and measurement. Since I am logging my food on the app. I decided to use the food sections on the journal for my thoughts about my meals or just in general. Tomorrow I will up my water intake.
Today I am grateful for the free gym at work, my kitchen and sheet masks for my face.
