Hormones *sigh* I don't miss them one bit. Hope Sunday feels better, LaMa
That sounds like a good alternative. Hope it's a fun little shopping tripdon´t want to go hiking away from reliable toilets so I´ll go shopping for kitchen supplies instead. I could do with another casserole dish and maybe a replacement for my older, more beat-up storage containers. That should give me at least an hour of walking anyway, which will just have to do.
very cool--i really like that idea--I feel like I should work on something like that--build up a good strong sense of balance--it seems to be one of those things that really vanishes as people get older and I'd like to be building that up while still young enough.Getting a little more stable on the board already
Thank you. I started out feeling crappy again but I went for a 3 km morning walk regardless and had some breakfast and now I´m at least feeling more positive - even if not more motivated.Hormones *sigh* I don't miss them one bit. Hope Sunday feels better, LaMa
Thanks The walk was nice but the shopping was frustrating. I almost felt guilty for wasting the shop assistant´s time! They tried so hard to sell me a modern-but-fugly stainless steel thing with a silicone and glass lid for over 100€ when all I was looking for was a basic glass double casserole dish (one of the ones that´s basically a deeper dish with a shallower one for a lid?) which I´m sure I´ve seen for under 15€. My mom has at least five of them and has had them for over 40 years. May check Caritas for a used one tomorrow.That sounds like a good alternative. Hope it's a fun little shopping trip
Balance is so important! The least glamorous (but perfectly functional) version would just be to try standing on one leg for 20 seconds at a time. As long as you´re staring a fixed point you´re really training ankle stability rather than balance but we´ve got to start somewhere. From there you try standing on one leg while continuously looking from left to right. Next step: close your eyes. Then stand on a soft carpet or a yoga mat. With closed eyes. If you can do that you´re probably ok for all day-to-day activities but you could make it even more challenging by either doubling/tripling your mat (just fold it, you don´t need multiples) or for the real freaks you can try getting up on tip-toe while standing on one leg with your eyes closed. No way I can do that unless I´m barefoot on a hard surface!I feel like I should work on something like that--build up a good strong sense of balance--it seems to be one of those things that really vanishes as people get older and I'd like to be building that up while still young enough.
Probably nonsense. My mom was very anti-pill and I guess I internalized some of that? I was happy enough with my IUD. It just feels wrong to put meds into my body for something that´s no more than an annoyance*. Plus all my female relatives tend to react to the pill with pretty significant weight gain and I´m not having that.Is there a reason you don't want to go on the pill again, just wondering...
Thank you for reminding meI think if you have limited energy tomorrow, just do the best you can for the day that's in it. That's enough. Higher energy days are just around the bend.
I mean, I guess you're swapping Judeo-Christian symbols for non-inverted yoga poses? Sorry, but sometimes the New Age rubbish really annoys me. It's one false god replaced by another.Hi LaMa, so sorry your period is all out of whack. That really stinks. I used to do non-inverted yoga poses to help with cramps, and it was really effective for me. It's so funny how those old Judeo-Christian symbols stick around in secular culture and still can haunt us. Puritanism runs deep in my family, and I still get those type of messages popping up in my thoughts at weird random times. I just have to laugh at how pernicious some self defeating thoughts are, because laughter does tend to dispel that sort of crap!
If you're going to criticize me, please just do that in my journal. I don't want to reply to you on LaMa's journal. Not into drama.I mean, I guess you're swapping Judeo-Christian symbols for non-inverted yoga poses? Sorry, but sometimes the New Age rubbish really annoys me. It's one false god replaced by another.
