When Being a Girl is No Fun

Hey Humble Readers...

I know I've missed a few days, and I feel bad about that.  I also feel bad that I've slipped up a bit in the last couple of days with my health and fitness goals.  I know it's just a slip up, and not cause to give up... I just feel lousy about it.

Not making excuses, because I own my decisions, but I can recognize what I have stumbled over. 

AF is due soon, and making her imminent arrival very apparent.  I am grouchy (more so than usual), my lower back has been aching badly for days, and my feet and hands are full of retained water.  As an aside, my PMS symptoms have gotten much more pronounced in recent months.  Much more extreme than they used to be, and they have never been a cake walk.  My poor, long-suffering Beloved. 

I also have some unfun seasonal allergies going on.  The trees along the river that give off the fluffy white pollen stuff have kicked into high gear and my sinuses are killing me. 

As a result, I have avoided the scale for the last few days... about the only thing I have been doing right is getting my water in.
