My good old friend has arrived for the monthly visit and I'm retaining water like nobody's business. Up to 193lbs. This go-round hit me harder than usual. Was so so tired and slept for 12 hours and I had to call in sick to work because the cramps were pretty strong. I just stayed in bed for the rest of the morning with my hot water bottle and watched old movies on the laptop. By the afternoon I was feeling well enough to do some yoga. Ah well, I don't mind so much really... just glad it doesn't happen more than once a month!
The weather is still wacky here, warmer now but melting snow is making more icy surfaces. I've been able to do a couple of brisk walks through my neighbourhood but was interrupted a few times to get out of the path of cars since there isn't any sidewalk here.
I've been listening to more podcasts on the iPod lately, especially on the bus to and from work and before going to bed. There's a good one called Balanced Bites They not only focus on food, but also other issues concerning health and being active. I found it through the cookbook I've had since last year called 'Practical Paleo' by Diane Sanfilippo, who is also the host of the podcast. I've also been catching up on episodes of Savage Love... but that's another story folks ;)
