The first thing I want to do is just give you a little update from my last post. I was able to get to Tai Chi class on Monday night and it was awesome. I figured out exactly what was causing my headaches and have eliminated that item from my life.

I have determined that my priorities have all been wrong. I have been so focused on losing weight that it has paralyzed me. Instead, I should have been going about my business doing things like kata and Tai Chi. So, I am changing things up as of now. I will continue to eat healthfully and in smaller portions but I won't make that the sole focus of my life. There are just too many other things to do.

Nov. 5, 2012 Monday

Well, another day and another terrible headache. 
Everytime I think I have gotten on top of the pain I start doing things again and the pain returns.  This is particularly ticking me off because I really want to go to Tai Chi class tonight.
It is always something .........

So, where have I been?

It has been a while since I last posted here.  What have I been doing?  Dealing with migraines.  My doctor has given me a few medicines to deal with them.  The migraines have been pretty intense and I am really struggling with them.  Last night I had one bad enough that my prescription meds did not touch it.

I've been through something like this before in my 20's with migraines.  I know the drill with them.  For me it comes down to stress.  My stress has really increased over the last month.  I know some people who read this blog, and know me, wonder what kind of stress could I have?  I generally appear happy and well.  But, that is the thing, I am not one who does a lot of complaining or even sharing of my emotions.  Why bother other people with your problems is my way of thinking.  Sometimes this contributes to the migraines. 

This has made me realize that I really have to change my life.  I have spent the last two years learning about nutrition and changing my eating habits.  Now it is time to change the way I deal with stress and other people.  I tend to take on a lot of responsibility for other people. It is time I step back from that and refocus my energies on my goals. 

So, we will see what happens with all of this.
