Day 6.

Today was a good day–not without its challenges, but a good day altogether. I felt fulfilled in my work, present as a parent, and relatively “in control” of my eating and feeling about food. But, as I end this day, I feel that nagging anxiety that I can’t quite figure out. I can feel a tightness in my chest, a buzzing in my body that I can’t seem to tamp down even with measured breathing and meditation.

I know this is in part thanks to hormones. I typically have a very rough go of things in the week before my period, so maybe this isn’t a surprise. But, I feel… unsettled. I’ll ruminate more and maybe tomorrow will shed some light.
