Migraine and lost initiative.

Thursday, April 22, 2021

Today's coaching lesson: Journal or blog about an area of your lifestyle that needs moderation. What can you do to change your attitude--and future outcomes?

So, the great rule - moderation in all things. Yuck, I either like something or hate it. I do not do moderation although it seems to be something I am picking up as I age. The snow mould is getting to me. Migraine two days in a row. Means no exercise, yesterday I was too out to notice, today I felt guilty.

I rested after my shower and laid down for a minute to cool off, hubby woke me at 7:30 to see if I was ok and if I wanted a bite of supper. Super hungry couldn't get enough in fast enough. I've been like that all week. I am an emotional eater so that might be part of it. I am one pound away from 50 pounds down from when I started and just can't seem to get past it. Blockage of some sort. I was telling myself last night to just slow down and stop focusing on that one pound. Let it go and it'll be gone with no trouble when I'm not watching. But oh my stomach it really wants some rolled up and squished white bread to absorb all the acid and emotions. So difficult to resist and ignore, Good thing there are no cakes and cookies and buns in the house. Just bagels and bread. I've got a good handle on not having more than one bagel a day. So am successful in that area of moderation but it's only been for the last 3 months.

    Wyn - You've got this! You just hit a plateau. Check out your numbers (BMR, BMI, etc.). At some point we just need to push a tad harder on some numbers. However, having migraines does not help... I remember having those during my perimenaupal years (40 to 45 years). I was miserable. Got over it once menopause came. Phew! I do not know if this is your problem though. I would check it out with your doctor. Sending many Spark hugs. Lise

    Ah...but 3 months is significant. You’re doing great! See if you can come up with some alternative comfort measures that have nothing to do with food. Make it something you truly enjoy and then do that instead of heading for the food locker when you’re in trying circumstances. When repeated consistently, you will have exchanged your old habit for a new and healthier habit...and you’ll feel so much better for it! emoticon emoticon emoticon
