Better late than never?
I’m moving on.
I had a good enough start to the day: meals were good, class was good, gazette was good (I’ll link to the smoothie recipe that ran yesterday ASAP)…then when I was teaching I got a migraine mid class. Not ideal. I couldn’t teach my spin and it was a good thing I just instructed my bootcamp to do stations (to rest my still hurting hip). I took my medicine but the aura was still so bad and I couldn’t feel my hand for a while. Scary. I hate hate hate migraines but at least it’s been months since my last one. When I could see to drive home I did. I ate dinner even though I really should have went to bed. I felt sick and gross and had too many extra spoons of peanut butter because I was so worked up. Silly. I don’t have to feel guilty or gross and I didn’t realize that til I got up this morning.
By 4:30 I’d had almost 10 hours of crappy sleep but sleep nonetheless so I set my alarm for 530. I stumbled to swim, swam like molasses, and then went back home. I still felt out of it but had my breakfast and hussled to my dietitian appointment. I almost cancelled last minute but I know I needed the check in.
I quickly finished an article for tomorrow’s gazette before I rushed through (a delicious) lunch and hurried to my hair appointment. I am sitting without my computer in front of me (this is a phone post) for what feels like the first time since back to school. I’ve got class this afternoon and more work for the paper but I don’t need to be this stressed all the time. I feel so it of it after a migraine so I know I should not run today–plus my hip will thank me. A few days off running now is smarter than injuring myself and being forced to rest later, closer to my races.
Now that I’ve officially whined like a baby, I’ll move on. I need to obviously find some relaxation during the week and on a regular basis. I know my migraines are worst and most frequent when I let my stress levels get so high that I feel frantic and like I am go go go. It’s hard since I thrive when I’m busy to not let things get like this. I’m going to take time every day to just sit/lay/stretch etc and I think if I remember that the world won’t fall apart if I don’t check my phone all the time, I will be okay (consider this fair warning and know that I’m not ignoring you!). Life goes on!
