It's a Love/Hate Relationship But It's Time to Break Up

Sunday, May 06, 2018

If you are a chronic migraineur, you probably know what a prodome is. If not, a prodome is a behavior that occurs prior to a migraine and it's usually something that cannot be helped, like food cravings. I get really strong food cravings and I usually will not recognize that my "false hunger" is really a gigantic neon sign saying 'Danger Danger, Migraine is Impending!' I even put a note up on my fridge stating, "If you are craving carbs, you are not really hungry. A migraine is coming." You'd think that would work but no.

Yet, I am determined to break up my relationship with sugar, processed carbs or whatever you want to call it. I told myself that I will do this 20 day challenge and eliminate chips and chocolate, (I'm still missing that Butterfinger...only a little). I did good until yesterday, but don't fret. I didn't go to the local OnCue for a drink because I know I'd fail if I did. Instead, I grabbed a bunch of strawberries and a greek yogurt (one of my fav 80 cal no sugar) and headed over to my best friends so we could watch some Netflix. For the first time in I don't know...ever? I recognized this prodome and I didn't cave into my cravings. emoticon

This is just one victory, but it is a huge one. It's the foundation that will lead to more victories and then I will just end my relationship with sugar.
