Breakfast/ Lunch

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Hey everyone

You are probably wondering why I am posting so early! Well, it’s because I have had a killer migraine since I woke up this morning and, as a result, had to leave work incredibly early today. ๐Ÿ™ No fun at all. I’ve done every one of my usual migraine fixes but nothing is working today and I still have that screaming in my head. Bah!

This morning I had a bowl of oatmeal to get my day started. I used 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup silk, 1 banana, 1 spoonful peanut butter, some dried cherries and a sprinkle of gingerbread sugar ๐Ÿ˜‰

And for a mid-morning snack, a z-bar with pineapple!

I had a delicious lunch today, thinking it would help me feel better….but nope ๐Ÿ™ I grilled my turkey/provolone sandwich (on protein bread) at work and it got all melty and delicious. I also had another cup of the fabulous tomato basil soup from work. Sometimes I think it helps being the only girl there! I can talk my way into soup!

Unfortunately, I started to feel reaaaally sick after I ate and went home shortly. No fun. No fun at all.

My tummy is kind of upset because of my head but I was hungry anyways so I made a soothing snack: a half cup of oikos and a pear:

Really, nothing major went on a work today….I felt so awful yet tried to suck it up and in the end, I just couldn’t swing it. I did bake some mini whoopie pies though. They are about the size of a quarter!

No workout today. I debated going for a beach walk, got dressed for it and then both my head and my tummy said no way. So…I think I might go lay down again. Thanks for sticking with me! Its just been a rough day, physically as well as emotionally. I know everyone has ’em though so its alright!

Be back after dinner!

    Aww, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well Jenna. My mom gets migraines really bad, so while I can’t feel your pain, I know what you’re going through is very not fun!

    Ugh I’m sorry about your headaches. Have you tried Imitrex? My mom takes it for her migraines and I think it helps.

    What cute little whoopies!

    Katie,

    Yes! I’ve taken Imitrex for years. While it works, it makes me feel 100% YUCKY all over and I prefer not to take when I can. It’s also reallyyyy expensive and I’m currently out ๐Ÿ™

    I get migraines every once in awhile and Boy- do they take every ounce out of me! I hate that someone who hasn’t had one can’t really understand exactly HOW BAD they can be… like seriously debilitating, my last one was horrible.

    I am SO sorry to hear you suffered from one too and that NONE of your tricks worked! Mind sharing those tricks? I have taking excedrin migraine and tried to drink water and lay in the dark but those are all I know…

    Thanks!
