I really do like picture books a lot. To keep the posts more interesting to look at, I will be adding obvious pictures. Pictures make things fun, right? Right!
This is what I woke up to this morning. A GIANT headache. I am prone to headaches, and I get them on a weekly basis. Funny thing is that when I was pregnant and had diabetes, I had to count my carbs at each meal and keep them below 40, snacks below 15. Needless to say, I ate a lot of eggs and peanut butter, practically no carbs. The eye opener was that I NEVER got headaches! After talking to my Dr, she let me know that headaches were a sign that my body was overloaded on sugar. The hard thing is pretty much everything turns into sugar if you don't work it off.
I attended my first WW meeting yesterday and to my joyous surprise they let me know that the program has changed, and fruit is now 0 POINTS! I LOVE fruit, I am a total sweets person and fruit is a great way to sub for starbursts. I should have listened to my body though, and I overdid the fruit and bread yesterday and didn't get in enough protein. So bring on the headache that would not go away all night. I could not even enjoy the fact that Hanna had a great nights sleep. I really could have benefited from that!
Todays focus is getting in my protein and balancing out my carbs. Which means I'm going to have eggs for breakfast instead of delicious oatmeal. Then I have to mop ALL of the tile (I'm sure that will earn me some activity points!) because I have a 7 month old that is now a crawling beast and I want to keep her hands and clothes clean. I'm OCD like that.
I leave you with Hanna and her daily push-ups.
I love this picture! What a cute kid!
P.S. I fixed the comments so everyone can comment. Make sure to "follow" my blog so I can see who reading!
Is there a food that you associate headaches with?
Banana's and lemonade. Just thinking about lemonade makes my head hurt.
Do you take a medicine when you get a headache, or try and go natural?
Excedrine is my life line! It was a rough pregnancy without it. But now we are reunited and it feels so good! (insert annoying song here).
