Diary of events.

7 am Wake up — I realized I hadn’t charged my Fitbit therefore steps, etc will be counted tomorrow. Migraine kicked in around 7:30 am. Normally I’d try to eat something but this time I was going to hydrate that pain away. Onwards to water.

Today went better than planned if I’m being honest. I woke with a migraine, I was far more mindful with my end goal, my snack mentality, and simply when my body was thirsty or snackish rather than hungry.
