Hey, maybe this stuff is actually good for something! I got my monthly visitor today. For once, I had no PMS. I do feel a bit miserable today, but compared to the last few months, it's better. I only had to take four Advil, not double that many. The cramps didn't actually make me cry (they did last month, oy!) Starting to feel the hot flashes a little more, but they're still brief and mild. Standing by the open screen door is enough to cool me off pretty quickly.
I'm still planning to go to the gym today, which got me to thinking about how I never want to give up the feeling of moving my body almost every day. What a change that has been from where I was a year and a half ago. I used to sit all day and all evening without thinking anything of it. Now, if I don't do at least something—even if it's just walking up and down the hills around here for twenty minutes or so—I get really antsy. I love going to the gym. Even when it's a struggle, I'm always glad when I've been. And now that my back is so much better, I think... I'm going to try Zumba for the first time! I watched some videos last night, and it looks totally silly and fun. I think I can do most of the moves. Does anyone have Zumba DVDs they recommend? We may be moving out of the city next February, and I'll need to do more of my working out at home.
