I have a lot of excuses today...

I am not, NOT in a good place right now. I had a crazy weekend in my own head! A couple of weeks ago my doctor called to tell me my blood work was back and I am officially in menopause.

Okay, I knew that, but I needed to the doctor to tell me so I didn’t feel like I was just going insane.

And this weekend it was like I was an alien from another planet! I won’t bore you with all the details but It. Wasn’t. Good!! I have an appointment tomorrow to get some “help”…it will get better. But where I am going with this is…

It was hard to make good choices this weekend, **this long weekend**. It was hard to get up off the couch and even walk across the house. The scale was unkind this morning. I realize now that my head is a little clearer, I need a very decisive plan if I’m going to be successful. I did a lot of reading this morning on managing menopause symptoms, (found some great resources), and all of the articles mentioned a healthy diet and excise.

I know… no big shocker!!

I realize I am going to have to be very aware of what I need to do, write it down and follow through. My brain is so scattered and my emotions so up and down, I need some accountability.

What works for you? What, if anything, holds you accountable?

  1. Thank you so much for leaving some encouragement on my blog. I look forward to following you too, and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope you start feeling better soon. I'm 40 years old, and according to my family history, I know that time is coming for me sooner than I'm wanting it to. Keep your chin up. *Hugs*
