For the past few months, well since November I have made some changes in my life. I have always had my “mom time” at Adult choir and hanging out once every other month with my gal pals. Both of these “mom times” required a quick trip to Starbucks for a Caramel/Vanilla Something, Something with Whip. Unfortunately these where not helping my aging waist-line.
In November I made it a personal challenge to get to Curves at least three time a week and change my eating habits and my mind set. In the last two weeks I began eating good Whole Foods and dabbling in Paleo which in turn has me eating a little big of meat.
My results in the past two weeks have been wonderful and I am gong to stick with the plan for another solid month to see if in fact adding meat and removing all processed food will give me relief to PMDD. If you have ever had PMDD and discovered a natural way to cope you would not only run to it and embrace it, but you would shout if from the mountain tops, singing and dancing for joy. PMDD makes life difficult and hard for you and your family. I have had full blown PMDD for 12 years and it is painful and horrible.
This month, I had no symptoms and the only changes I made where evening primrose for five days and eating Paleo for 6 out of 7 days… I cheated with a gluten free turkey burger twice. The peace I felt was unbelievable and I have my fingers crossed that it will be the same the next month.
You see, if I had not make a commitment to self-care I would not have lost the 8 inches I have in the past two months or have felt the magical wonder of a PMDD free menstrual cycle.
My Momma Groove Has NEVER been better. I am getting things done with a smile on my face and real hope in my eyes.
Can you make time for more self-care? Do you make time for self-care?
I would love to hear about how you take care of yourself in this crazy busy world.
