Horrible headache yesterday, but good workout; HIIT today.

My first day back at work was pretty brutal. By the middle of the day I had a splitting headache, but I think the headache was caused by pollen and not stress. We have a beautiful peace lily that was given to us by our vet when Turtle died. The lily has a lot of sentimental value, so I really don’t want to get rid of it, but when it flowers I always seem to get sinus headaches. I think the trick is to cut off the insides of the flowers (which is where all the pollen is) as soon as they appear. Sometimes I forget to do this and I always seem to get headaches as a result.

So with my head splitting open I was not feeling much like working out yesterday afternoon. I forced myself to lift anyway, and the workout + post-workout hot shower really helped alleviate the headache quite a bit. A few hours after my workout the headache was totally gone! Of course I also cut the inside of the flowers from the lily out, so that may have had something to do with it, too.

Today is a cardio only day. I’ll be adding 2 minutes to my HIIT cardio session (18 minutes total). It’s going to be tough!

Time for breakfast and then it’s back to digging myself out from under the massive pile of work that accumulated while I was on vacation. Have a great day!
