I basically took this whole week off. From the food and the exercising. And life without headaches. Seriously, I’ve had one pretty much every day for the past 10 days. And I think technically it’s only been 2 or 3 different headaches.

I started seeing a new doctor this week and presented her with a variety of issues I’d like to *attempt* to address. First on the list was my headaches, which seem to be increasing in frequency. And I don’t get little sissy headaches. I get major migraines that last for 5-7 days on occasion.

I’m also hoping to address the fact that because of all the medications I take, I have zero libido. Zilch. Nada. I could join a convent and be OK with that aspect of the lifestyle. But I think Daniel would take issue with that. So I’d like to see if I can work on that problem without exacerbating my headache problem.

Step one was to take me off one of my medications – my birth control (NO, we are not going to have another baby(-ies)). So my uterus ate a lot of cookies this week. And cake. And various other things that count neither as a “superfood” or even remotely healthy.

So here we are. I gained a little this week (shocker) and felt way too bloated and time-of-the-monthy to take a picture Friday morning.

Stay tuned for Week 9: The Reboot .
