After my post Sunday...I had to lay it all out first...I prepared supper for the family!
I made myself a veggie pizza on a whole wheat pita with a side salad (it was yummy...but that is not my point!) within an hour of eating my headache was gone and has NOT returned.

So I have concluded that it was indeed the need for some healthy carbohydrates in my body that was giving me the headache. Weird but true!

Yesterday I eat moderate serving of carbs just like I have done previously and I feel great.

I am learning much about myself again on this journey!
I always knew that there would be emotional and spiritual renewal along the way I just had no idea how much. I feel like I am walking in more truth lately and in doing that I can minister life to those in my life!
Specifically my children..... my eldest daughter is so much like me and I see her falling into the same perfectionist and overeating behaviours that I am walking out of. My prayer is that I never return to that which I have walked out of so I can lead her in a positive manner.

My workouts have been at 6:30am lately because this is when my hubby leaves for work and the house is still quiet.
Yesterday it was me and Jillian doing the 30 Day Shred. Today the hydro had went out before 6 and just came on a few minuter ago so now I need to figure out when and how I will get my workout in.

Have a great day and thank you all for the support over the last number of days, you are all great!!!

Just so you know I am not able to open your blogs yet because my computer keeps Aborting the Operation???? and I am really missing reading about your life. Computers are great when they work the way they are suppose to!!!


  1. I love your new picture on the side!! Look at you!!

    Keep up what you are doing it is working!

  2. I agree with Sarah love the photo. I don't want to be evil but I have found when I did low/no-carb anything the first 3 days are the worst (headache wise) and then they would go away. But the sugar in carbs can be like an addiction and it can take up to 21 days for the headache and withdrawl to go away. I know this for a fact b/c my hubby gave up caffiene a few months ago and it took 3 weeks of headaches to break the habit. But eating good whole grain carbs is always a great way to go and you will be at your goal weight before you know it. So keep rocking it and you will be an ever skinnier mommy in no time!

  3. Ditto on that. Great picture! I have to make sure I eat carbs every few hours, otherwise I get pretty sluggish and a dull headache.

  4. Look at you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Skinny minny! Do you really need to lose any more? You look wonderfully thin and toned Christine.

    I believe the latest research supports that our bodies need healthy, complex carbs to function properly. Your symptoms were exactly bang on with complex carb deprivation.

    Seriously, you look fabulous! I want to give you a huge hug.
    Blessings on you and that family of yours.

  5. I'm glad you were able to figure out what you needed to get rid of the headache.

    I think you are setting such a great example for your daughter. She will follow you, I'm sure of it.

    You are looking fabulous!
