Menopause Doesn't Have to be Miserable!
When I was 50 years old I started getting hot flashes during the day. The hot flashes would continue throughout the night along with night sweats, and for the first time ever I had trouble sleeping. I was too tired to get my morning workouts done, which made me very frustrated, and I needed sleep to function.
Menopause doesn’t have to be horrific and mine was more annoying the first year. I'm a fan of natural remedies versus medication, and about a year into menopause I discovered Black Cohosh. A natural and vegan herb that has helped me a lot, reducing hot flashes and night sweats. Since I'm smaller, I take 2 of the recommended 3 herbs daily, one with lunch and one with dinner.
Many ladies struggle with menopause and there's a lot of negativity with the subject, but hot flashes and night sweats can be managed. You don’t have to gain weight or suffer from low energy. Positive thoughts, healthier foods, bodily movement, and surrounding yourself with a supportive community will help you feel better. Stay away from Facebook groups for menopause where women tend to complain and focus only on the negative.
I turned 55 years old on November 11, 2022 and I’m in the best shape of my life. I’m postmenopausal, have tons of energy, my hair is thicker than ever, my skin is healthy and smooth. I'm thrilled that it's possible to feel so amazing at this stage of my life.
Here's my featured article about menopause in Women’s Day magazine from September 1, 2020. Enjoy the read and let me know if you have any questions I can answer.
On May 3, 2023 I started in 46th place and I quickly moved to the top 5 where I remained for 5 weeks. I got as far up as 2nd place!
I'm so grateful for the tremendous support and votes I received from all over the world, from strangers, family, and friends, along with donations that resulted in double votes, and lots of shares on social media.
The competition included many rounds and I became aware that winning wasn't about the story or even the pictures, but instead it was heavily focused on donating to the Wounded Warriors in order to advance. This didn't feel authentic to me as I don't believe one should have to pay to win, but I stayed the course.
In the end I placed 4th! I had fun, received lots of visibility and we all did our best as a collective.
Thank you for your support!
