Listened to IOWL #7.

Tired again tonight. Mood's still good.

Been having headaches, off and on. Feeling very puffy and heavy (but that could totally be about the massive quantity of food I ate yesterday.) My boobs are doing that heavy, slightly tender thing they do. My skin is acting up just a little. I'm pleasantly sore through the arms because I did strength training yesterday. Sex drive is transitioning into muckiness, mostly. My energy is way down, I took a nap for about an hour and a half, and I've been tired all day. Kinda lazy. Didn't do any exercise. I did do a blog post at the Paranormalist, and managed to cut down on the time I would normally sped fussing over it.

A commenter asked me today if I was suffering from a food hangover. That concept just blew me away. Perhaps what I think of as the natural progression of my cycle IS triggered by over eating in response to the increased hunger I'm subject too on certain days. I'll have to somehow resist the urge to overeat at about this time next cycle and see if I feel better in subsequent days.


1) I got to IM with my daughter tonight. (Which is why I'm up so late -- I wanted to go to bed at around midnight, despite my early afternoon nap.) I've started picking out pendant designs for my next order from her Etsy button making shop. Though I'm not quite ready to place the order, she set aside a couple of my favorite one of a kind designs so they wouldn't sell while I'm making up my mind about the rest.

2) My dog and I had a neck wrestle while we were on Husband's lap. I'm pretty sure the poor man got a couple of bruises, but it was fun.

3) We got an unofficial indication that the house might be going up for auction soon. I so hope it's true, because I can't wait to feel like that is really behind us.

    Withstanding the period junk cravings is so hard. I don't even understand why we get those (quick research seems to point to increasing blood volume and low serotonin levels, huh). Last month was incredibly bad for me, this month? Not a single craving. Why can't it be like this every month?!

    Food hangover - interesting concept. I'm sure I know what THAT feels like! Now if I eat even a swallow too much I have to sit up half the night waiting to digest because my stomach just can't take it any more.

The puffiness and soreness might be water retention from resistance training. Or might be hormonal. Also, if you ate a lot of salt. It takes such a delicate balance of choices to feel okay.

If you think about it, send me the link to your daughter's Etsy page by Spark Mail. I'm a continuous Etsy shopper - haven't been disappointed yet. I'm also a little picky, so no promises but I would love to see what she does.

    Seems like everyone here is getting headaches recently. Of course everyone in my area is getting sick.

    What you described sounds exactly like a food hang over. Especially the boobs comment. LOL My " girls" go through the same thing.

    Sorry to hear about the headache. Hope you don't have the bug that I had. I hope you rest well tonight.
