New one for me

Monday, September 28, 2015      2 comments

Woke up this morning counting the days till my period. I can't remember ever before looking for it to come (at least in a hopeful manner). I am seeing it hopefully as a reboot to start over. This month stress literally dumped cortisol and what... Read more

Reframing and acceptance

Saturday, September 26, 2015      0 comments

Doglady13;s comment "It helps to reframe the way you look at the circumstances that block your progress" sparked my brain today. It lead me to the conclusion that a lot has to do with acceptance - acceptance of where you are currently and accept... Read more

Anyone else go thru the monthly cleaning/tidy cycle?

Friday, September 25, 2015      2 comments

Second blog in one day! Even knowing that I act lots of different ways, I never really looked into patterns or reasons. So now, trying to understand and determine a plan of action, (and avoid the drugs docs suggest), the knowledge I am gaining... Read more

To see His wonders

Friday, September 25, 2015      1 comments

" When we get into a difficulty we shall say, "I am now going to see the wonders of God, and to learn again how surely He delivers them that trust in Him." Charles Spurgeon Storms come and they go and God is there thru it all. He covers me... Read more

Kinder, gentler to myself

Thursday, September 24, 2015      5 comments

More than two years ago, I officially became a part of the maintainers (though I joined the group ahead of then to help me prepare for when I reached that stage). Maintaining has taken a lot of work. I know how to diet and have that down prett... Read more

Planning can help us keep our "happy" chemical and save our brains

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      2 comments

In my quest to find out how to have happier thoughts and thwart pmdd, I came across some scientific studies that explain how many of the things people do here on sp actually contribute to those "feel good" chemicals in our brains. I am going to... Read more

Changing chemicals change our thinking

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      3 comments

They now define these monthly mood altering states I experienced most of my life as pmdd. All I know is that at least once a month for a week, life was rough for me and my family. Then due to a totally different condition, I began drinking hom... Read more

Saw all the blogs on disappointment and it got me thinking. I suffered a large (for me) disappointment recently and I cried. Yes, great big crocodile tears, wrenching sobs, out of control until my sister called and then I had to stop so she coul... Read more

Tonight I'm eating

Saturday, September 19, 2015      5 comments

11 years ago today, my mom passed away in my home. Tonight kids and grandkids are coming over to make homemade pizzas and brownies. Saturday nights growing up my mom would do that with us and our friends. This morning I started wanting to have... Read more

Pmdd and pms and perimenopause help

Friday, September 18, 2015      2 comments

A couple years back, my gut was destroyed from being on intravenous antibiotics and the docs prescribed probiotics that were extremely high in number (and extremely expensive). I also ended up with my calf tendons almost snapping because of the... Read more

Note to self - action on rotator cuff

Friday, September 18, 2015      3 comments

So it has become a predictable pattern. All set to start living life with this shoulder again and end up not being able to use my arm and having to quit the recent exercises that were helping me regain strength. Grateful that last time I found ... Read more

Injury again

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      3 comments

Seems like this has happened more than once. So I'm back on track, not just with losing, but with exercising which is the hardest for me. Pick what I am going to stay consistent with, get going, then bang, an injury and I don't believe it is re... Read more

Sept 1, start of a new month

Tuesday, September 01, 2015      3 comments

Thinking today is a good day to start getting more serious about what several have called "restart." Maybe one of the things I do is work against who I am instead of thinking about working with me. Example: I like to have a quick lunch that d... Read more

More than weight loss

My daughter sent me this video last week:

We are all different - and that is ok

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      5 comments

"Food is fuel." So I have tried that take on food and guess what - it just doesn't ring true with me. At my age, maybe I should start realizing that when something doesn't gel with me, it just isn't going to work so well for me. Please note, ... Read more
