Today I am grumpy and tired and out of sorts. Our heat wave has broken, returning us to vaguely chilly and stolidly grey. My ovaries feel … not swollen, not yet. But something – maybe just my ovaries FEEL.
We went climbing yesterday, with our climbing friends. I used an elliptical instead of climbing, thinking that though it is very early for my ovaries to twist or torque, they FEEL, so I figured dropping 12 feet repetitively was probably not an advisable level of impact.
I realized I’ve been backsliding on my diet, which is reasonable given I’ve been on it for three months, but not reasonable given these are the money weeks. So I’m back on the low-carb train, which is what I’ve been doing a bit more poorly with.
I seriously reduced my alcohol intake about four weeks ago and gave it up entirely about two weeks ago. I want a beer. It’s 10 am and I want a beer. Mostly because I realized this morning that if this cycle works, it’ll be a long time before a beer is a thing I can have.
I am filled with whine today. I am not actually uncomfortable. I know that is coming though, and I’m drudgingly grumpy today. I’m going to go make peppermint tea and see if that doesn’t dispel some of this.
