For breakfast, I measured out a cup of Fiber One Honey Clusters (yum!) with 1/2 cup skim milk and around 1/2 cup of strawberries.
Then, I went to work...and had the most fabulous lunch ever, a Kashi frozen meal called the Mayan Harvest Bake. And then, I wrote a huge blog post about how fabulous that meal is and how all of you should run out and buy it...but, my computer went a little crazy, and the whole post got deleted. And now I don't feel like rewriting it. So, go pick up this meal, seriously. You will LOVE IT.
I headed home with every intention of doing nothing but reading Eclipse until it was time for my group run at the running store. But...disaster struck in the form of a migraine. Blech. I haven't brought this up before, but...when I get a migraine, I get a major salt craving. I started noticing this a few months ago. When I have an especially bad migraine that makes me throw up, I have a really strong salt craving afterwards. If we don't have saltines in the apartment, I go crazy! After some Google research, I read that migraines can be caused by a sodium deficiency. I don't eat a lot of salt, so I thought this was interesting. Over the last few weeks, I've been trying to eat salt when I feel a migraine coming on. I'll start popping saltines and drinking water, and frequently, this seems to do the trick.
So, when the migraine came on this afternoon, I started popping saltines and drinking water. Saltines = not WW friendly! I rested for awhile, but got up to go to my group run. Halfway there, my migraine kicked in at full force. I turned around, went back home, and crawled into bed. And I drank a vanilla Coke. Vanilla Coke = not WW friendly! But a caffeine kick is a last resort.
After a nice little rest...the migraine is almost gone! And I made a nice WW-friendly crockpot meal (ham and potato au gratin - let me know if you want the recipe! It was pretty tasty!). So, the day is not completely lost. But I didn't get my second workout in, so I kind of feel like a bum. Tomorrow morning, I need to Shred AND run! Whew!
Happy almost-Friday, everyone! I'm off for the weekend, thanks to my summer part-time schedule. Tomorrow afternoon, I'm hanging out with my Little Sis, S - we're watching a movie and I'm making her mac and cheese, her fave meal. I know I haven't talked much about her in awhile...I think I'll do an S post sometime this weekend.
