Heeeellloo! 🙂

Pretty average Thursday, aside from the (relatively mild) migraine I’m battling. I’d love to just lay down in a dark room – but I’ve been dreaming about that since 7am! Isn’t meant to be, today!

Citrucel on the way to work 7:45 a.m.

Breakfast 8:15 a.m.

Early brekkie today because I was go-go-go to meetings all morning.

Bowl of red berry, ½ banana, milk

Snack 10:45 a.m.

Kashi Dark Chocolate Cherry


Lunch 12:30 p.m.

My co-workers were kind enough to pick me up my scrumptious taco salad at the farmer’s market today….while I was on a conference call. LOVE the co-workers! 🙂


Snack 3:45 p.m.

½ a peanut butter clif bar (found in the depths of my purse. Is that gross? Oh well.)


Exercise 4:45 p.m.

My head was rockin but sometimes exercise helps so I thought I’d give it a go.

I warmed up on the stationary bike for 5 minutes, then dove into my strength routine for today, per the SSU 2010:

3 sets x 12 reps

Lunge & Lift

Pile Squat

Side Leg Lift (with 10 front circles and 10 back circles each)

Stability ball hamstring curl (2 sets with both legs on the ball, one set with 1 leg)

Frog Crunch

Bosu Calf Raise

Leg Extensions

Prone Glute Lift

Made it through my strength work out with my migraine, but I definitely increased my rest time to prevent the head pounding.

For my cardio I kept it simple and did hills on the treadmill at a brisk walking pace. 20 minutes

1h20m @ the gym = 492 calories burned

Hubs walked the pup for me, and it rained today so I headed home to prep dinner, and pack my grub for tomorrow. Oh, and cut up an incredibly ripe cantaloupe. Mmmm…

Dinner 8:00 p.m.

Late again because Hubs had an evening meeting. We had leftover spiced roasted chicken thighs, roasted potatoes, and salad. I combined all of the above into a monster salad– hubs ate it like a normal meal 🙂


I’m off to rest…here’s hoping my migraine is gone tomorrow! My poor co-workers worked in the dark today so I wouldn’t have to deal with the fluorescent lights!
