Last night was trippy af, y’all. I took my nightly pills, and I suddenly turned into a dizzy-ass walking zombie. I even hit the back of my head somehow (I don’t remember doing this) and turns out that I bled on my pillowcase.
I woke up around 3 a.m. – Luke was awake reading his iPad – and had a splitting headache (migraine-class). I felt the back of my head and found some of my hair to be matted with blood. Luke and I looked at it, and he said I had a cut on the back of my head. I vehemently denied bumping it, but Luke said I had to do *something* for it to bleed like that (which is the truth, damn it!). I had a rough time getting back to sleep, but I woke up around 7 with my poor head still pounding. Ibuprofen became my new best friend today, I gotta say. Luke said I probably gave myself a concussion, and I have to agree … my head was being SO SHITTY for the entire day.
Three cups of coffee were consumed this morning, complete with Coffee-Mate Chocolate Espresso. My head was feeling yucky, so I treated myself with some creamer. I enjoyed a Siggi’s Mixed Berry Yogurt with some raspberries and blueberries with a sprinkle of granola and a drizzle of honey.
After breakfast, I got dressed, went to the gym, and did my hour on the elliptical (my head wasn’t doing too well during my exercise, but I plugged through it). Luke advised me not to go back and lift weights today because of my head … I thought he was right, so I didn’t do weights today (hopefully tomorrow I will – weights are my favorite!).
Washing my poor hair and blow drying it was not pleasant – my head was not thrilled with all of the activity, and my headache worsened. Poop!
Lunch was a smattering of tuna, cucumber, Toasted Sesame Ginger dressing, Pace Salsa, a few pickles, a bit of sweet potato. It looks unappetizing, but this really was a delicious pick-me-up meal. Salted Caramel Tea to drink!
Luke and I ran a few errands – we needed to grab some veggies and lotion at our local United Supermarket, and we needed more e-liquid. Yes, we smoke e-cigs … it’s the last unhealthy habit that I need to tackle, but I’m still in the throws of fighting the eating disordered behaviors, so I’m allowing myself to smoke (for now … I keep throwing around the idea of quitting, as Luke does too!).
With my pounding head, I drove to Target and TJ Maxx to just browse … I had no money on me, just a $5 Starbucks Gift Card, ha! I enjoy browsing and dreaming, just the thing to get my mind off my stupid headache. I spotted a Wonder Woman Crop Top at Target … and then I spotted a Star Wars Crop Top! Enamored, I texted Luke, and he told me to swing by his work. He sweetly gave me his credit card and told me to buy the two tops (I could return them if I needed to … the Target dressing room was PACKED on this Saturday, and I didn’t want to stand in line for an hour to try them on). Talk about a loving husband, y’all. I just adore my caring man!
At 5 p.m., I had a Pink Lady apple with crunchy organic peanut butter and cinnamon to stave off hunger for dinner. So tasty and satisfying! I drank Purple Acai Blueberry Green Tea with my apple … I would post pics of my drinks, but they’re almost always in my giant Yeti Mug, so it wouldn’t be very interesting to see.
I made Ranch Chicken for dinner with ranch dressing, BBQ, Panko, and cheddar cheese … easy peasy recipe! I just coat the chicken in a bit of ranch dressing, S+P, top with some Panko, drizzle with some BBQ, and add some cheddar during the last few minutes of baking. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees.
