I don’t know about you all but this daylight savings nonsense has me all mixed up. Waking up each morning has felt like a medieval torture practice that even modern day torturers would say, “woah, too much!” Getting out of bed when there isn’t a trace of daylight goes against my bodies natural cycles I’m sure of it. Not only has the past week been a struggle to wake up but I’ve had three consecutive horrible nightmares each morning. I’m falling apart sleep wise!
Unfortunately sleep isn’t the only part of me that has derailed. My cycle has now decided to go off and embark on its own adventure with no return date note left behind. Despite the inositols and all of the “rules” (no drinking, eating correctly, chiropractor, meditation, etc.) I’ve followed at the beginning of this cycle (which started Jan. 25th) here I am on day 50 with no ovulation. I don’t know what happened! The inositols are supposed to shorten your cycles but mine have gotten longer! My body has had three ovulation attempts this cycle but never quite released the egg. I was frustrated, then I was mad, then I was sad, now I’m just completely over it. F###k it. I’ve had some period popcorn this week and I got a little tipsy on Monday. I’m out of chiropractic appointments. I’m about 10 days away from not having a baby in 2018 (got the huge [i.e. expensive] health insurance plan in case we got pregnant and delivered a baby in 2018). I’m just, ugh! Sad. And so frustrated. This is the longest cycle I’ve had since before the weight loss.
I’m trying to let it go and be at peace with whatever the F my reproductive system is doing and on that note I’d like to tell you about an upcoming guest post! Remember Krystyna’s Story from October of 2016? A good friend of mine who is a fitness advocate and now mom to a toddler? Well I’ve asked her to give us and update and advice because I find her truly inspiring and I wanted to celebrate another woman in honor of Women’s Day (it was recently International Women’s Day on March 8th). Her post will be coming soon!
I know I haven’t posted much lately as I have been on back to back vacations for a couple of weeks and then busy getting back into a more regular routine. The KKA (Kristina’s Kraft Adventure) blog now has a new Instagram account! You can find me on Instagram at: TheInstaKKA (sorry I can’t link it for you until I get a premium WordPress account).
