Yesterday was a pretty Meh day. I had no energy, no strength. I still made myself get up and do some yoga, went for a short walk around the property, etc. It was a day of very few spoons, though. I’d do something, like speak Hungarian for twenty minutes, then I’d have to sit and no do anything for thirty minutes or so, until I recovered.
I had more brain than I normally do on a Meh day. I wrote. I got some things done. I don’t want to say that I was tracking well, but I was still able to follow along to some extent. So not a bad cognition day, more of a Meh day.
This is all an improvement over previous Meh days, when I had no brain as well as no energy. So despite the fact that I couldn’t get as much done as I’d originally planned, I still did more than I used to be able to.
Yesterday was also a good example of why I don’t tend to plan days off. There are too many times when I need to just take a day off. Working yesterday would have been stupid. I did what I could. I rested a lot between bouts of activity.
However, because I’m healthier, I don’t have as many Meh days. So I do need to take time off. This is why I have the once a month PJ day already scheduled, and am looking forward to it.
By the end of the day yesterday, I’d kind of given up and just watched a movie. I know, that was consuming story, which is a good thing. But I didn’t have enough energy to read, which is saying something. And I need to finish the current book before I go on vacation. It’s a physical book, and I don’t want to have to carry it with me.
Today I woke up with more energy than I had all day yesterday. I still have menstrual cramps. Have had those for three days now and counting. No period of course – this is all PMS. Added ginger, peppermint, as well as cinnamon to my tea this morning to help with those. As well as took Tylenol.
I have lots of brain today as well.
One of the habits that I’ve recently adopted is drinking bone broth every morning before I have my tea. This has been wonderful. Though I take collagen, my body doesn’t seem to absorb it that well. Generally, I still have dry skin with just the collagen. Drinking bone broth eliminates that, even in the winter.
I recently got some hyaluronic acid in bulk form. I’m going to start taking that every day, to help with the joints. Don’t plan on using it on my face, though we’ll see. Menopause means drier everything, and I know that the hyaluronic acid will help with that.
And I think that’s about it for the day! What food do you consume regularly that makes you feel good? That might even be good for you?
