Feeling hormonal...

i was going to say I was feeling down, but truth be told, I'm 100% sure this is just hormones messing with me right now. I don't think I'll be exercising today. It's 41 degrees outside and even with the aircon on, the house is not feeling particularly cool. After being outside for the past two days, the boys are railing at having to be inside. I'm sick to death of this diet already, and really want to cheat on it, but I know that is simply because I'm premenstrual and this is fairly normal for me.

I think all the dairy is messing with me a bit though because I've been so moody and crampy and bloated and just generally pmsy for about three days now, and despite a touch of spotting yesterday, I have nothing to show for it... That's not really that surprising mind you, I'm only CD11 today, so at a minimum tomorrow should be the last day of this cycle, with AF showing up on Saturday, or else, Sunday or Monday. Right now though I'm hoping it's earlier rather than later, for the sake of my mood. For the sake of timing Monday would be better though...

If my low, low feeling is any indicator though, it'll be tomorrow or Saturday...

Ah bugger... I hate that sort of feeling. :-( Here's hoping AF delays until Monday and you are feeling a bit of relief from the evil hormone fairy! :fingersXed:

If the dairy is affecting you do you think it'd help if you switched some of it from cows to goats? It's supposed to be easier to digest in general, so maybe would be a bit nicer for you if it's not a different pH?

Hugs Sif, I'm holding you in my toughts at the moment. Goddamn if you weren't in a dream I had last night (just hanging out in the background). xx

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Do you have low self-esteem?

I don't.

I used to think I did, but having met several people who really do have low self-esteem, I've now come to realise I actually have low confidence (and note I don't say low self-confidence, but more on that later), and that is a different breed of animal all together.

I was having a chat with a friend the other day about people who constantly put themselves down. If you are a participant in social media you might be aware of this kind of person. Everyone is smarter than them, prettier than them, more motivated, better organised, or has greater talent than them. It goes further, some of these people are not at all opposed to running themselves down to others with comments like, 'I'm so fat' (and not in a proud, fat acceptance way, but in a negative, self-loathing kind of way), or 'I'm stupid' or 'I'm ugly'.

Some people are just fishing for compliments, of course, but the ones who persist; the ones who simply cannot take a complimen…
