I put my weigh-in into Lose It! this morning and it told me that… I had gained 98 lbs. What?! Turns out that my subconscious had dropped my weight for me when I entered my starting weight. I fixed it and, woo! down two pounds. Now my calorie goal makes a LOT more sense, and where I thought I was over-eating (because I was really hungry) I actually met or was under my goal. I am a little disturbed that the system didn’t flag my weight goal however- someone at my height who weighs 100 lbs less than I do should really not be trying to lose weight. Hrm.
Hey look! A weekend post! I hardly ever do these anymore.
Friday I woke up with a terribly stiff neck and a bad headache. I got dressed and ate breakfast, hoping my morning meds would rally me, but when I sat down at the computer- yeah, bad throbbing. A quick email to work and back to bed. I had a nasty migraine all day that wouldn’t let me sleep. Things began to ease up around 11:30-12:30, but I was really hurting all day. No, I didn’t take my migraine med because it zonks me out so badly, but in this case I think I would have been exactly the same. I really couldn’t concentrate and tv, computers, and books were all pretty much out. I did manage to clean toilets (desperately needed) and figured out the craft idea I had and made half-a-dozen ornaments, but that was pretty much it. I have no idea what else I did all day- I think I stared a lot.
Friday night there was at least one more party in the neighbourhood (hubby says two). This is getting a bit out of hand and I’m going to start calling the cops. Even with ear plugs female shrieking echoes across the pond quite loudly so I relocated to the livingroom couch. About 5:30 am I got up to take my early morning meds and crawl back into bed- only to discover that hubby wasn’t there. He wasn’t on the couch in the family room, or on the other couch in the living room. I finally found him on the futon in the guest bedroom- the party had kept him awake, too. (Yes, we have a lot of couches.) We both crawled back into bed but by that time I was wide awake and ended up staying up.
Mom stopped by for a bit in the afternoon so I could help her install some software and configure her new Notebook, but otherwise the day was a bit of a wash. None of the things we talked about doing happened, but I think I was still recovering from the migraine (although I didn’t have a “hangover” like I usually do- I now suspect that’s from the meds more than the migraine itself, so maybe it’s good I opted not to take them after all), not to mention not enough sleep. Tentative plans for today might include a movie with friends, weeding, and/or a craft store run for more supplies. If none of those things end up happening, I’m okay with that, too.
