Walking with Chance

Migraines, outside time, and anxiety talk!

Good morning, beautiful people! This recap is going to be super short because the beginning of the week was kind of rough and not much happened for me. I didn’t feel well for most of Monday and Tuesday, but I still wanted to get on here because I have been doing so good about posting a few times a week! Let’s take it back to Monday…

Monday

Walking with Chance

Chance and I went on a 3.5 mile walk. The weather is supposed to be super nice this week! It’ll be back up in the 90s by the end of the week, but it was 70 this morning. We were both really happy if you can’t tell.

Laying in bed with Chance

This is pretty much what the rest of Monday and all of Tuesday looked like… My head was pounding, and I was super nauseous most of the time. I decided to just lay low, and I basically only got up to work and then went back to bed.

Wednesday

Walking with Chance

I woke up feeling so much better! Chance and I got to the park around 8 and ran 1.3 miles and walked 2 more miles after that. It was 68 degrees out, and we both felt awesome. Chance has SO MUCH MORE energy when it’s cooler out, it’s crazy. I am trying to not rush through summer because I’ll be sad when it is gone, but I am loving these 70-80 degree days!

Breakfast smoothie

I completed a full body strength training work out when I got home using dumbbells and my body weight. I am trying to start incorporating at least two strength training work outs every week again. Then I made my smoothie with frozen blueberries, spinach, chia seeds, almond milk, and a raw egg.

Coffee, tablet, and TV

After I showered, I made some coffee and settled down to work on this post and my post that’s coming on Saturday.

The beginning of this week was rough for me. I was feeling a lot of anxiety and sadness, and I think a lot of it stemmed from having a migraine for a few days. I used to suffer from anxiety really bad, but it has been a lot better in the last couple of years. I know a lot of people are struggling emotionally right now with everything going on in the world, but I just wanted to come on here and say it’s okay. It’s okay to not be okay sometimes. I don’t let my anxiety rule my life, but it does get the better of me sometimes. I love the quote “Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day” from Alice Morse Earle. Even on the worst days, I know I can think of at least one good thing that happened or something I am thankful for. I hope you can too. ❤

Questions for YOU! Please respond below so we can chat. 😍

  1. Tell me one good thing about your day/week. I got to spend my birthday with my family.
  2. What’s your best anti anxiety tip? Going on a walk, cleaning, or talking it out are some of mine.
  3. Would you rather sneeze all the time or hiccup all the time? I would definitely choose sneeze! My hiccups are terrible.
