Yes, It Can Happen in Your 30’s

Peri menopause. Intense bloating. Frequent, dull headaches. Tender and sore breasts. Exhaustion. Unregulated body temperature changes. And the unfiltered rage. A friend of mine equated it to a ticking clock. You become more aware of your mortality on a biological level and simply don’t have time to pander to the unnecessary. Your body is adjustingContinue reading “Yes, It Can Happen in Your 30’s”

Seriously Anxiety!

I’ve taken a few more days off from working out than I had been planning. My mom’s visits usually do that. But now I’m suffering the consequences. Today’s anxiety is sort of like an unexplained dread. I’m starting a new adventure (I am taking on a second massage job) and the great unknown is unnerving.Continue reading “Seriously Anxiety!”

Trying Some Self Care… Again

Well, I’m at it once more. Trying to start a workout routine. I’ve been in too much pain and feeling really weak. My anxiety has been leaving me flat and tired way too often. It’s time to make a change. Again. So, I’m trying a new approach and maybe even a bit of my ownContinue reading “Trying Some Self Care… Again”

So I’m drinking a lotContinue reading “It Just Goes On and On and …”

Well, That Was an Adventure

I swear I sat down every night ready to write a post, but it all just felt jumbled and forced. Life just kept coming at me faster and faster and I had no time to sort anything out. I did my workouts, I went to work, I cooked meals, I cleaned, I drove everyone toContinue reading “Well, That Was an Adventure”

Bringing my Goddess Back

I’m going to do it. I’m going to get back on track and start doing the things I need to do to take care of myself so I can be here, fully, for my crazy family. My body has been begging for so long it has entered into an aggressive strike against my ‘hibernate untilContinue reading “Bringing my Goddess Back”

Getting a Massage

It has been way too long since my last massage. I am not always this terrible about getting body work done, but our schedules at work are always full and it’s just been too difficult to schedule anything for ourselves. The studio owner noticed this and set up a couple days for a therapist toContinue reading “Getting a Massage”
