I’m linking up with Wendy at Taking the Long Way Home & Holly at HoHo Runs for their new That Time of the Month link up. And I’m channeling Joan Rivers, RIP, whom I saw as a kid in Miami with my parents.
Can we talk? And if you talked to me, at some point I’d probably tell you how annoying it is to me that at 53, I am not post menopausal. In fact, since you’re not post menopausal until you’ve gone 12 months without a period, I will be at least 54, having just had one a few weeks ago.
I know it protects your bones & heart. I know my mom was 56 (but my sister was 51). I suppose I should actually be grateful that it is pretty sporadic, having only had 2 this year so far. But that’s just the problem: I never know when it will strike. And when one is coming on, I tend to gain weight no matter how well I’m eating, but of course I don’t know one is coming on, so I get so frustrated . . . oh, clearly I could go on & on but I’ll spare you.
If I don’t know your number . . .
. . . I will not pick up. We do not have unlimited texts, phone, or data. I get calls from numbers I don’t know at the very least several times a month, often more. They tend to go in clusters.
It’s actually bad enough that I never set up my voice mail. People I actually know rarely call my cell.
I first signed up for USAFit Albany because I like to run with a group. I like to talk while I run. Yet often I am still running by myself because of my pace. It’s annoying.
Actually, I’ve been lucky this summer that the person I ran with last summer is back & while she’s a little faster than me, she enjoys doing her long runs at my pace & using my run/walk intervals.
Last year she dropped out when she got injured. Crossing my fingers she stays injury free this year. Selfish much?
I think that’s all I’ve got for you this week. Normally I do try not to complain too much, but hey, they asked for it!
Anybody else going through perimenopausal hell like me? What’s annoying you this week?
