I'm in PMS week. Must remember that. For the past two cycles, I've noticed that my boobs get quite a bit bigger during this week! For the last two months, my libido sky-rocketed at this time, but not this month. With my gut more out of whack than usual and my sleep schedule messed up, I'm not surprised (but still disappointed).
Hulky is driving me a bit crazy right now. I don't know how to talk to him about it without turning into a raging bitch. I guess I'll save it for therapy on Friday.
My two January goals were
-body brushing (just legs) before showers
-10 squats per day
I'm keeping up with the first goal as it takes less than a minute before I hop in the shower. It doesn't seem to be helping my dry skin at all. My skin overall is perpetually dry in winter. Moisturizing regularly and after showers does not seem to make a difference. I hate it. My second goal I started forgetting about so today I printed out some calendar pages. One is for Hulky so he can track whatever he wants on it (I thought maybe mag citrate, since he's been forgetting to take it). The other two are so I can track my squats (will probably tape on bedroom wall and keep a pen nearby so I can write how many I did before bed) and whatever else. I don't think there's anything else I need to keep track of right now. Long-term for Hulky, I want to get one of those big desk calendars and hang each month up on the wall as a poster so he can write down assignment due-dates, appointments, and make schedules for himself to get work done. He is a fan of this idea, so I'm pretty excited about it. I hope it helps.
I realized this weekend that my efforts to avoid being a pack rat like m y parents have really paid off. I swung by their house to drop something off and nobody was home. I thought I'd poke around in my old closet, but I couldn't get into it because of my brother's stuff in the way. He has toys in his room from when he was maybe 5 yrs old and he's going to be 16 soon! He has way more toys than he needs. My parents have way more clothes than they need. My dad could use a larger dresser. And in general, they have absolutely no organization system except piles of stuff. It was disturbing to see. I think it's gotten worse since my sister and I moved out. Hulky helps keep my messy habits on track (the Army was good at getting him organized) and I do at least yearly clean-ups of all my stuff. Not to say that I don't hang onto things longer than I probably need to, but it's never that bad.
Now I feel like doing a winter cleaning session. There are some old sewing projects abandoned for so long or in need of so much work that I'd rather just throw out at this point.
I am hella grumpy & tired today and would so much rather be at home. The honeymoon is my sole motivation for not taking days off.
I had a mango smoothie this morning. Very tasty . Lunch is gluten-free tuna casserole (brown rice rotini), mandarin orange, and banana. Snack is hot cocoa (pink himalayan salt, cocoa powder, collagen hydrosylate, hot water). Dinner... Not sure yet. Probably chicken & roasted taters or something like that, as long as I didn't let the chicken go bad while defrosting in the fridge for several days.
