I've entered that strange state many refer to as peri-menopause, which seems to be this Neverland full of various symptoms, no real definition, no defined start or finish time. I haven't had the hot flashes yet, the whole off-kilter schedule thing is something I can sort of handle, but the weight gain is quite frankly just ticking me off.
Because now I need to make a concerted effort to find time to exercise. Which is next to impossible for me with the kids' schedules. But it's going to have to happen, because I can't stand the way I feel right now. So for this first week, I'm going to try walking just a bit, starting today (oh good, as I type this, ominous rainclouds are rolling in from the west...). I figure even 15-20 minutes is better than nothing.
Anyone else at or through this stage of life? Got any hints you'd like to share on how to handle it?
