Menopausal woman - trapped
here's today's Microactions
1. Drink 2 litres of water
2. Spend 30 mins reflecting on the week, Video the thoughts
3. Socialize with friends
What a day of two sorts, started the day by having blood tests, then drove to the Lake district, managed to drink my first bottle of water in the car. Spent the day in Keswick with a friend which was lovely simply milling around the shops and having a nice lunch. Returned at tea time to take part in a church meeting which ended in a hot pot supper. The good news was that even though it would have been easy to have a second portion I managed to resist it. The result of which is that I managed to lose 3lbs this week.
Had a very emotional evening inside my head worrying about a whole raft of things that may never happen. i remember clearly how paranoid and easily upset my mother became during the menopause and I'm guessing my hormones may now be starting to close in on me. Whilst I can light heartedly laugh about it this morning last night was not so funny and having such highly strung emotions is not going to help my quest to lose weight and create a healthier life for myself.
Speaking my truth is going to be the way forward which is scary as others may not appreciate it but for my sanity its the way it has to be. later today I am going to make a quick update video to reflect on the week but on quick reflection I think next week has to have a more positive focus.
