I’m not feeling so hot this morning—I’ve been in bed for the last couple hours trying to get rid of a migraine. 🙁
I should be thankful that I don’t get them more often these days…only now really around a special time every single month when my hormones are going crazy. From the moment I sat up in bed this morning, I knew. Ugh. I got up anyways and had breakfast, which was the homemade muesli I had made last night and put in the fridge. It was the usual with dried berries, banana, toasted almond slivers and cinnamon with oats and soymilk. I also had a glass of my freshly squeezed orange juice that I got yesterday from the store. I took a migraine pill (as much as I hate to do so, I don’t want it to ruin my Saturday), put an ice pack on my head and tried to lay back down for awhile. When I got back up, I made an strong illy espresso and am feeling a tiny bit better. Good enough to function that is.
I’m thinking about going shopping today. I need some new shoes. When doesn’t a girl need new shoes?
A note on juice: many people will tell you not to drink juice at all, as it is filled with sugar and caloric. That’s stupid. If you buy freshly squeezed juice that is not from concentrate it has many vitamins and minerals that your body needs. A glass of juice does not mean drinking 16 oz of juice though. I usually eyeball my juice glass to fill up about 7 or 8 oz. I grew up drinking juice every morning with breakfast and I’m very picky about the kind. I grew up in Vero Beach, where orange juice is made, so I grew up drinking the good stuff. Don’t even try to pass me Tropicana because it will make me gag. I’d really like a juicer so I can make my own but for now I think I’ll continue to buy the good stuff at Whole Foods, now that is conveniently so close to home.
