Checkin' in - 182.0

Totally shocked at this weight! After thoroughly enjoying a weekend at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs with lots of amazing food, I thought sure I'd be up several pounds. So I'm quite thrilled to see that number on the scale today. :-D We did do lots of walking, too so I guess that helped counter the great food.

The view from our room.

Our room at The Broadmoor.

The most wonderful thing I have EVER tasted in my 52 years! It's a Goat Cheese parfait with pistachio, golden beets, bowtie arugula. The goat cheese was the consistency of whipped cream. I was almost swooning! :-D

Checkin' in - 182.2

Up a bit. Forgot to check in because I had family visiting and then on Wed. left for my birthday trip to The Broadmoor in Colorado. Having an amazing time and dread the weigh-in next week! ;-) But having too much fun to care right now. It's sunny and gorgeous here and our room has a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains behind the Broadmoor. Today is our day to relax. Tomorrow we'll be driving up to Denver, visiting some friends there and then flying home late in the evening.

Checkin' in - 181.4

Down 1.6 since last week. Yay! And that's even with my cycle starting on Thursday. Really don't understand my body at all, but I will take the loss. I've had a headache a couple times, but they haven't been the severe migraines, so making progress. I think. Doctor called with blood results, everything normal, no allergies showed up from whatever they tested. Still need to do fasting bloodwork. Still need to get better with exercise. Walked on the treadmill a couple times.

Tuesday - ugh, ugh, ugh. Why does it have to get so warm and muggy so EARLY in the year????? Makes me feel so yuck and soooooo crabby. Time to break out the capris and tank tops!

Checkin' in - 183.0

And.......I'm back to where I started out the first week of February. :-P At least I didn't gain. Had a good massage on Thursday and a wonderful chiro adjustment yesterday. Will be getting another massage this Friday. It's been a week since my last migraine.

Chuck Norris posted some columns regarding migraines that have VERY good information in them! I look forward to reading Part 4.

Part One

Part Two

Part Three

And here's an awesome article from Prevention Magazine: 100 Easy Ways to Lose Weight (Actually their list only goes to 84, so not sure what I'm missing!) :-)

Looking for answers

Went to the doctor yesterday to talk about my migraines. She's checking me for allergic reactions. She said she lived here for a while, then moved away, then came back and the second time living here started having lots of allergy issues. She said our bodies can adapt to the allergens the first time we live here, then when we come back, we no longer have the immunities and our bodies can freak out and react more. Something like that, anyway. So we'll see what comes from that. She also refilled the one med that does work for me to stop a migraine, so I have a stockpile of that on hand. Am consulting with my naturopath, too. Today - it's massage time! I think I'm going to add a hot towel treatment.

Proud to say that yesterday, before leaving for my app't at 8:30am, I actually got a 30 minute walk in on the treadmill. For some of you that may not seem like a big deal, but since I'm not a morning person, it was pretty epic for me! :-)
