HOT FLUSHES 'N' HOUSEWORK

I am NOT happy! I am getting hot flushes all darn night that wake me up all the time, I seem to spend half the night throwing off the duvet, and then pulling it back on ....this has been going on for about 3 months now and it's a pain in the butt!! And now it's starting to happen in the early evening as well, so I suppose I am officially going through menopause.... oh JOY. Just as well I lost my weight before this started I suppose, cos I'm thinking it's harder to lose the weight as we get older? Middle age spread and all that.

It is now 3 full weeks since I had any Diet Coke, so I think I can say I am over it now..... maybe I shall have a drink occasionally but I know I will never go back to 3 litres a day! I really havn't noticed much of a difference in myself from not drinking it......maybe my fluid retention has been better, but not gone entirely. One thing I have noticed though, when I wake up in the morning my face and around my eyes is not puffy anymore... this is great! I usually have to be up and have 2-3 piddles before my face loses the puffiness.

Today is going to be rather boring me thinks, lots of housework and I am going to try to get to the gym as well. Then hopefully I can do some work on Mike's room, have to sand the walls etc next. till later...I went for a walk into town to get keys cut, but when I got there they told me they don't do those particular keys anymore.... so walked to the gym instead, did my upper body workout, had a quick sauna and walked home again.

Then Stew and I had a look-see at the neighbours house's Open Home, to see if it was bigger than ours, it certainly sounded bigger in the write up. It isn't, it's 290 square metres, ours is 320. So won't covet it then! After that we went grocery shopping and spent over $700, I don't know where it goes!
That's it for now... have to cook dinner soon, don't think I'm going to get onto Mike's room today afterall. I'm tired.
