    No worries! I use to get migraines a LOT, but I figured out that my birth control was causing them (started at age 17, figured this out at age 23) - since then, I get them rarely... so maybe that is what it was! Excedrin does usually take the edge away, but we were out, so I grabbed the aspirin in liou of running out to the store I also dabbed on some peppermint essential oil, and the cooling effect was quite nice! The pain is all gone now and I'm enjoying day 4 much better now... thank you for the well wishes!

    Oh, one more thing - my left ankle has cracked and popped for as long as I can remember... day in, day out. Since I've been eating so much coconut butter/oil, it hasn't been cracking! It's amazing!!

    Afternoon! Well, it's day 4! Woo hoo! Days 1 and 2 were a breeze, lots of eggs, avocadoes, and crockpot meals were had - no desire to cheat! Day 3 I started to crave something SWEET (which is not normal for me - I'm more of a salty gal), so the husband made us a shake with homemade almond milk, frozen strawberries, a banana, and some coconut butter which seemed to hit the spot. Unfortunately, later that day I got a raging headache! It lasted on until bedtime, and around 10pm I had to dash out of bed to vomit! I don't know what caused this... but waking up on day 4, I still have the headache. After taking some powdered magnesium, the edge was gone, but it's still hanging in there. I should probably stop staring at the monitor now I'm so happy to read all of your stories!
