School started mid-August and my wonderful work-out schedule has dissolved. I'm struggling to get a couple of workouts in on weekdays and one or two on weekends. I don't like being so busy that I have to neglect myself! I have been eating good breakfasts and bringing good lunches to school though, so that's something positive. I'm eating tons of salads for both lunch and dinner. But that's not enough for me, I've got to exercise. I can honestly feel some weight creeping back on me!
Well, I guess I'm officially in menopause. Wow, I'm really sad about it. I had no idea I'd feel this way, but it's a hard realization that I'm changing and, of course, aging. The worst part is that my body will feel really PMS-like and then nothing happens. I'm bloated and crampy and then there's no relief from it. Plus, the middle of my body is so tight and thick. It's just not wanting to go away. I don't know what more I can do to keep my body slim. It's so frustrating!
