Hi! I'm back. We were gone last week for a fabulous vacation with friends in the mountains. I will have a post with pictures hopefully sometime this week. And, I want to finish my follow-up to the series I started a couple weeks ago as well.
In the meantime I had to share this link to an interesting article...Are Your Hormones Making You Miserable? by Dr. Mark Hyman.
This article immediately caught my attention because I've suspected for several months that my hormones are haywire. I've been experiencing major mood swings, bouts of extreme anger, general irritibility, and depression. And, it definitely corresponds with...you know...'that time'. I've known that I needed to do something but I've really wanted to try something natural.
This article gives 12 suggestions of ways to get your hormones back in sync. And, guess what!? It involves eating fewer carbs and sugars, eliminating processed foods, eating fresh foods & healthy fats, exercise - all stuff I knew I should do all along.
The article challenged the reader to try making the changes for 1 week and see how they felt. I've always felt overwhelmed by the thought of changing my eating habits so dramatically. But, I think I can commit to 1 week. So, I'm taking the 1 week challenge. I'll let you know how it goes.
