Celebrating day 201

201 days since my last migraine.  And before that, there had been a 240 day streak between migraines.

Not bad stats, not bad at all.  I’m almost getting to a point of being cocky.  My husband and I went out to dinner last week, it had been 21 years to the day that we had met.  Crazy.  As we were walking up to the restaurant, he said he had remembered going there together once before.  I quickly replied with my memory of getting a migraine when we had gone there together years before.  I then said “not today though, I won’t get a migraine.”  Call that The Secret type of thinking, but I honestly believed, no migraines for me man.  Not happening.

So, I’ll call it a 201 day celebration today when I go and try rock climbing for the first time! Sometimes you’re put in the right place at the right time.  I started talking to someone at a Halloween party a few weeks ago, and found out she was heavily into rock climbing.  I told her I’d always wanted to try it.  By the time I left the party, I had her phone number with a promise to text her to set up a date to meet because “now is the time for me to try this!”

Definite bucket list item.  Just thought it would have been 20 years ago, rather than starting something new at 45 years old.  But, bucket list it is.  Who knows where this may lead.  Excited and nervous at the same time!

So, I’ll be sipping on my anti-migraine smoothie after taking my supplements this morning, thankful that I’m counting day 201 as a huge success in this migraine battle, with a cocky attitude!

Rock on.

Adding to my supplement arsenal…

Recently, I went to my doctor and had some routine bloodwork done just to make sure everything was in check.

For the first time ever, a few of the results came back about 1 point high.  So, needless to say, not in the ‘normal’ or ‘good’ levels.

I know I’m 44 now, but, I will not settle for a C grade.  I’ll go down to an A-, maybe a B+, but not below average.

So, I’ve had to get back on the horse.  The health horse.  This past summer brought many nachos, burgers, and yummy foods.  And although I continued to exercise at my regular intervals, I knew I was pushing the envelope.

So, I’m back to not eating however much I want of whatever the heck I feel like.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my food, and will continue to eat, yet, not to the point I was doing, and I’m back to adding more of the good for me stuff.

Also, I’ve added a Super B-Complex, and a D3 vitamin daily which my doctor suggested to assist in lowering the levels which were slightly elevated, and to assist with bone health to my anti-migraine potion.  I’ve tweaked my B-2 to just in the afternoon, I didn’t know if it would be too much B in the morning.  (I feel like such a dork for even writing all this.)

Anyhow, here’s to our health.  Still banking on natural sources and vitamins to battle the things my body throws at me, in hopes of not needing more serious meds down the road.

I’m currently on day 35 since my last migraine, jonesing for day 200…

Just keep swimming…
