Being in my mid-40s, I’m pretty sure I’ve started the “change of life” a.k.a. menopause. My cycles are changing and not in a good way. My “lady days” are heavier and the migraines that come along with my cycle are more intense. When I awoke this morning, my body ached and I was so fatigued. Instead of dreading working out, I declared today a rest day. And my body is thankful.
Today’s food consisted of a morning smoothie (banana, blueberry, vanilla yogurt, honey and cinnamon), a spinach quiche for lunch and a filling tasty salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, chicken breast and chia seeds.
After a grateful rest day, I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s workout. Only 5 days to go!
