It's alive!!!

Hello my cilley peeps!  I am back, I am alive, and I didn't end up in the ER for a migraine.  (That happened a few years ago, and I'm terrified of it happening again, it was very scary.)  I did end up tossing my cookies in my office trash can, however, which was when I decided I'd had enough and went home (only 40 minutes early, I'll have my boss know).  When I got home, I knew I needed to get some fluids back into me so I got down about 10 oz of a replenishment drink and a can of chicken broth (not together, though).  Two Tylenol PM later and I was in bed by 6:00 p.m. with a very confused dog.  "But mom, why are we in bed with the lights and the TV off?  Oh, and I have to go out again."  Yep, every hour for about the first three hours, CBS wanted to get up and go outside.  I finally just kicked out into the rest of the apartment, telling her to do what she would to my carpet, I wasn't letting her out any more.  She finally calmed down and lay down, only getting me up every three hours after that to let her out, and I didn't find any incidents this morning. 

Thinking back, remember how on Saturday I just couldn't get my mind and body to cooperate in a run?  I think that was all leading up to the spectacular migraine I had yesterday.  I had a bit of a headache Sunday and Monday, more of one Tuesday, then couldn't sleep Tuesday night.  In the early Tuesday morning hours, the headache bloomed.  This has happened a couple of times before, feeling blah for several days and then bam!  Huge headache.  Oh well.  I slept for 12 hours, more or less (goofy dog), and feel much better today.  I'm also a lot less hungry that I thought I'd be after only consuming about 350 calories yesterday.  I think my tummy is still feeling a bit abused.

I was toying with the idea of doing a Jingle Bell run this weekend, but since we've got a cold front here in Cilleyland and they're forecasting snow tomorrow and Saturday (light snow, but still) I think I'll pass.  I'm hoping to take Sunday off from work, because I'll be surprised if I don't have to work from Monday the 7th straight through to Christmas Eve.  Gack!  The gym beckons me but things like sleep and bathing tend to take priority in situations like these.  Hey, at least I have very little time to grocery shop or even eat so that should keep the calories down, right?  Speaking of which, I need to do my November goals recap and post my December goals still.  I know you're all waiting that with bated (baited?  what does this phrase actually mean, anyways??) breath so I'll try to do that soon.

    Bated :)

    Glad you survived the migraine! I hope you get a little break from work this weekend. the 7th through the 24th sounds CRAZY!

  2. I'll be running this weekend, what me to email you when I'm heading out? Sometimes it helps to know someone else is out there in the cold too =).

    If you're sick though, you might want to just take it easy.

  3. I am sorry to hear that you are not doing good! I hope you feel better soon!

  4. Alisa, I'm thinking if I run at all this weekend it will be indoors. The cold not only isn't good if I'm not feeling well, but it triggers my asthma. Maybe next weekend?
