Headaches Make Me Hungry

I don't get headaches very often, but when I do get one, it's always a doozy. And today, I have a massive headache.

I felt fine when I woke up today, aside from being exhausted (what else is new?!). Despite waking up at 3 am to the sound of "Mommmmmmyyyyyy!" on the baby monitor, I started my day at 5:30 with the 21 Day Fix Dirty 30 workout while daddy and the kiddos slept.

My headache came on suddenly around 10:30. Perhaps it's no coincidence that it came on while I was sitting in a meeting with the finance team...? Whatever the cause, I immediately started to feel woozy and a little sick to my stomach - and HUNGRY! Is that weird?? Don't most people lose their appetite when they have a headache? Maybe my body was craving fuel to help fight the headache? At least that's how I rationalized eating something just about every hour. I kept it healthy, but man, I ate and ate and ate.

Back to Basics dinner!
- Portabella mushroom cap stuffed with spinach and marinara, and topped with nutritional yeast
- Side of sauteed summer squash and onions

I had planned to run 6 miles tonight, and thought about scrapping it due to the headache. But I went for it anyway, hoping that the endorphins would help. No such luck. I called it a night after 5 miles (5 miles that were quite a bit slower than the 5 I ran on Monday). I scarfed down a banana as soon as I walked back in the door because I felt a little dizzy.

Here's hoping that a solid 8 hours of sleep will do the trick. Good night!

What did you have for dinner tonight?
