Brain Ache

Ever have one of those mornings where you wake up just feeling “off”?  That’s me. 

I slept OK (until FH kept pulling the covers off my feet!) and I slept long enough…but I still woke up feeling “meh”.  And “meh” turned into a headache.

So instead of the gym I decided I should snooze some more before work.


And watch some PVR’d TV.


And tried a coffee to kill the headache…with some mint hot chocolate powder sprinkled in…


Ditching work isn’t an option so I loaded up my water glass (9 times out of 10 my headaches are caused by lack of water…maybe I’m still rehydrating after yesterday’s snackfest)…


And made a big bowl of oats to fill my belly for the morning.

Peanut Butter & Jam Oats!


In the pot: water, UVAB, 1/2 banana, flax meal

Yummy!!  But it didn’t cure my headache or lethargy.

When I started to feel hungry again I decided that a green smoothie was the only thing I wanted.


Straight up green goodnessIn the KA:  ice, frozen strawberries, 1/2 banana, spinach, Amazing Grass Superfood, UVAB, water to thin…


While I was drinking it, I felt instantly better!

Boooo…but here we are 20 minutes later and my headache still lingers. Guess I will resort to pills.  Lame. 

I’m going to try to cuddle Stoopy, but he looks kinda comfy in his corner…

You always are eating the most interesting things. Makes my diet look boring! Can I come and stay with you for a while?

I want to snuggle Stoops too.

Yes, I just nicknamed him Stoops.

Hope the headache goes away soon!

Green Smoothie's are usually the cur all! Sometimes you just have to resort to the meds. Hope you're feeling better :)

I have had a headache since lunch... I feel your pain.

I feel off today too, but it's my tummy that's all wrong.

When I have a headache, I can usually get rid of it by drinking a few sips of Coke. If that doesn't work, then usually nothing will.

Hope you feel better by now, though.

hope you lost the headache :( I had a migraine all day Monday and it is the WORST! I need to make one of those green smoothies.

I hope your headache eased up. I hate when I get them because I want nothing more than to curl up in bed and make the world go away!
