I need to apologise again because of my inconsistency lately. Especially last week where I completely disappear for the whole week. But I am back, with some updates…
First of all, of course… This blog is now three months old. Belated celebration, of course.
I would like to thank everyone who are still following, and still commenting and sending messages. I always find that blogging community is one of the best support system online — especially for those who are striving to be better either mentally or physically. I am glad that I have the chance to be a part of it.
So far I have posted over 50 entries, got just under 350 likes (thank you peeps!), and now with 140 followers (woohoo!! love you guys!!).
I can promise that next month would be better, but I am not going to do it… I hate to make promises if I am not sure if I can keep it. So, let’s just say that I am going to try to update more regularly 🙂
Second of all, some updates.
I had a really horrible week.
I had coil replacement three weeks ago. It was not a pleasant experience is an understatement. However, I put up with a half an hour of embarrassment, and a couple of days of some discomfort to avoid an 18 years of trouble. So that bit was fine.
What is not fine is that the next period (which happened last week) become extremely heavy and excruciatingly painful. Heavy flow was expected, of course, but I haven’t had such a profanity-inducing period pain since… my teenage years.
I was lucky that the peak of the pain happened during my days off, so my self care Sunday was actually my husband caring for me as I tried to move as little as possible.
Yes, I have heard that a little exercise would help reduce the pain. That only works for a normal period cramp. Mine last week was a crippling pain, which I hope is not going to happen again next month when the coil has settled.
Pardon the pun.
Anyway, the pain came with the 4 days headache I couldn’t shake. 5 days including today. It went whenever I took an extra strong painkiller, but came back soon after the painkiller effect dissipated. This is not fun, because I always have this low key pulsating pain while working.
Felt like I could snap anytime anything wrong happened at work. Good job I was only part timing, and NOT DOING SERVICE. I have to say, I was really grateful that I wasn’t working in a hot busy kitchen.
Okay the gore bit is done. Let’s move along to the next one.
I haven’t done an official weigh in, but my non official one said I am gaining a kilo. However, since it is not official, I am not going to put it here now as it might skew the whole statistic thingy, and I am going to do it on my weekend weigh in.
The weight gain was expected as my hormone went all over the place. However I also think that my calorie cycling doesn’t work as well as I expected, but I am going to go on details on my Sunday update.
I still feel a little bit fragile, but I can move a lot better now that the only thing aching is now just my head. I really hope that it disappears soon, because it is getting really really annoying now.
Glad to be back again, and I hope to see you again in a couple of days.
