Soon to celebrate the Big 50 I have almost come to terms with myself, this is "me". I can say, when someone gives me a compliment I either say thank you or I know! I exercise, I eat healthy, I have a very good life, great family and friends.
I am journeying through menopause or seeing the light at the end! Our society tends to put a negative slant on menopause, emphasizing crazy mood swings, serious hot flashes, loss of sexual drive basically all downhill from there. Whereas Eastern thinking is it's just part of the process, becoming more enlightened and full of wisdom. Gee, which way do you think is a better way to feel?????
I admit there are the days when I feel a bit cranky or fuzzy headed and I can be warm without going to Mexico. However I am able to stand back and say, this is part of the process and what can i do to make myself feel a little better? So yesterday this is what I did:
When I awoke I made myself fresh juice (apple, carrot, kale, celery)
then I pulled out my mini trampoline for a half hour of rebounding (great for your lymphatic system) a half hour of rebounding is close to 1.5 hours of walking.
The I lit my favourite candle (from Anthropologie) and did 1 hour of yoga.
For dinner I cooked what I wanted (I was the only one home).... stuffed portebello mushroom and grilled asparagus and yes a glass of red wine.
As my girlfriends all say..... Life is short, ENJOY and take care of yourself.
