Funny story before I blog today. Google celebrated the birth of the ice cream sundae on Sunday (which made me want to cheat and have one!). They even adjusted their Google doodle to reflect the celebration:
I once blogged about things I wish I was eating, and mentioned ice cream sundaes. As a result…my picture kept showing up in Google image searches Sunday and my # of blog hits went from an average of 200 a day up to 26,681! LOL! Priceless.
Now, onto the post!
So, I have been getting migraines for a while now (over a year?) and I can never seem to pin-point what causes them, or how to fix them. I have a little Excel sheet I write down details in – had I had coffee yet? Had I slept well? Had I eaten? What did I eat? (could there be a hidden allergy here somewhere?). Was I wearing contacts or glasses? (I’m super near-sighted so I must have one or the other on). So far my data tells me I get headaches more when I have contacts on and haven’t had coffee but that only happens 50% of the time. It’s frustrating to not know why I get these headaches and how to stop them. I thought tracking the environmental factors would help – but it just left me more confused. Does anyone else suffer from frequent migraines and know what their trigger is? I’d love to chat!
Last night I caught up on my TV and found out “Ruby” is back on The Style Channel. I ranted about her once, but I got sucked back in pretty quick. She once weighed 716 pounds and has successfully gotten down to 340 on her own – without surgery. That is amazing. She is a whiner (aren’t we all sometimes?) – but overall I like her. She has a “Women’s Fat Night” she hosts and it makes me wish I could host that kind of party here in Boston. I think I need more fat friends….or I need my friends who have weight issues to move closer! 😉
In the episode I watched, Ruby got Reiki done. I have some belly-friends who have talked about it, so I knew what it was (. But, I was floored by how powerful it is! Has anyone had it done? Did you feel like you were emotionally cleansed? My rational brain says there’s no way it could work….but the spontaneous side of me wants to give it a try! I am in the category of people who reads their horoscope everyday, likes getting my Tarot done and believes in psychics; and yet I am skeptical when it comes to alternative medicine. Silly eh?
Totally off-topic – I have to pack for Vegas tonight. I decided to bring a pair of jeans that are on their last leg (literally!) – if they get ruined during set up I won’t care and can justify throwing them out (more room in my suitcase for presents!). Overall, I am confident that this year will be better than last. 🙂
