Headache free

Today is the first day in over a week that I have been headache free – YAY – long may it last (just hope I haven’t put the black on me by saying that now !!!) I am off to the chiro again tomorrow but the main thing is that it is finally gone !!!
Not much else today – Al is going back to the specialist re his knee this afternoon so hopefully that will be some good news although I am not holding my breath given how he has been walking on occasions lately. Will wait to see what he says.
Had two Lindt balls last night and thoroughly enjoyed them – I also counted them into my points so it really was guilt free eating (and Al was there so I couldn’t really sit and eat all that were in the container without feeling like a real piggy !!!) It definitely helps having some else in the house when you want to eat something that you know you really shouldn’t – actually I shouldn't say that because even when there is someone awake in the house, I have been known to take biscuits / chocolates into the garage to eat whatever I don’t want anyone to see me eating – how sad is that ???? Although, given our situations, I am sure that it is something you can all relate to. The main thing is that I had two and stopped – gone is the old me who would have had 3 or 4 and then snuck back into the kitchen to have a few more once Al was asleep !!!!! Maybe it is the thought of having to buy bigger clothes that is keeping me honest - maybe it is the thought of putting on the weight that I really want to lose before we go to Taiwan so that when we back 2 days before Christmas I can have a little bit of leeway for Christmas lunch - I am not sure which but thank goodness my determination hat has stayed firmly on my head the past two days. My water hat is also planted quite firmly on my head - long may that last !!!!!!
We had a good workout at pilates last night which was great. Depending on how this afternoon goes – I may go to weigh in tonight – otherwise I may just weigh myself at home and take that as my weight for this week.
I know I was tagged last week but haven’t got around to finding my 5th sentence etc etc – will try to get to it later.
Take care and have a great day !

I used to eat the reat of the choc or whatever once everyone was in bed :(
I am so glad I don't do that anymore - it helps me when hubby is home with me to not go overboard on treats too:)
Hope you stay headache free!

Whoooo hooooo. Oops *in a whisper* whooo hoooo. Don't want to bring your headache back by shouting.

Glad you are feeling a bit more up today. Being headache free really helps with that.

Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow :)

Thanks for your comments on my post. Well done for getting rid of the headaches. It is a real bind to have that hanging over you.
Hope you enjoy your week
Love Polly

Glad the headache seems to have gone! I think eating in secret is one of the worst things we can do for ourselves. Thankfully, I seem to have managed to overcome that thing at least! I hate it how there are so many emotions that surround food - guilt and shame are the worst!

Glad the headaches are gone. Maybe you borrowed M's determination hat and it was a little tight LOL! You must have cause you are both determined people at the moment and it's showing with your successes. Well done. XX

Mmm, you make me want to go and buy some Lindt balls now. I do like Lindt chocolate. I definitely do understand about the garage eating. I don't have a garage but eating when no one is around is pretty much the same thing. YAY to NOT going back to old habits.

Yay for a no headache day! Hope you have many more of them.I have never tried lindt chocolate and I don't think I had better. Sounds too nice!

Oooh, Lindt is my favourite! In my pre WW days, I thought nothing of eating a whole box in one sitting! I really hope people don't get me chocolates at Christmas this year.

I could completely relate to what you were saying about taking food somewhere to eat it where people couldn't see you. That was a huge issue for me in the past - I did a post on Wednesday about it. It was more to do with eating in public, but even at home (especially when I lived with my parents and sisters), I was very secretive about my eating. I'm out of the shadows now!

Glad to hear your headaches are disappearing. There's nothing more debilitating, is there?

Hope you've had a lovely week, take care xo
