I am on day nine of my Yoga 21 Day Challenge. This far, I have lost a total of three pounds. Very happy. I am learning that my body is in perimenopause, of which comes with not only irritability but weight gain as all. I worked too hard the last couple of years, gaining it back is not an option.
I am focusing on portion control and weight watchers along with hot lemon water each morning, a natural appetite suppressant. Then the Yoga! Each session is just a few minutes but each one melds right into the next. I am struggling with the poses of downward facing dog as I dealing with weak upper body and wrists. I know that with practice, this will only get better.
I also stopped by the library and got a couple of books to do a bit more research on this perimenopause. I would rather deal with it with knowledge then to suffer through it. Of course, if I can use herbs and vitamins and not drugs, more the better.
My AC decided, at the end of the wretched summer, that it no longer wants to work. I am sitting under my ceiling fan drinking strawberry infused water trying to keep cool. Luckily, it’s only 97 degrees today. Mother Nature seems to be in menopause! A massive storm hit Maricopa and Pinal County last night and a huge shade tree was blown down outside my apartment! Dude, it even smashed in a neighbors patio!
I had a girls night out last night in Tucson and enjoyed the cool brisk air…so glad that fall is just around the corner! I think it is just about time to bust out the fall decorations! I like the mini pumpkins and gourds in a big bowl…
What is your favorite decoration for fall??
