I Turned 40 & My Body Said F-It: Let's Talk About It.

WTF 😳 I swear to you tribe I turned 40 and my hair started breaking off. My nails are starting to become weaker and breaking more often my hormone levels are on a trampoline and I don’t know what they want to do and we’re not even going to address the brain fog😩😩

It all started with my annual physical......

Me: Doc my body has been taken over by an alien life form that I do not recognize or identify with. 😩

My Doctor: 😒 Porsche (insert an uncalled-for deep breath) as women age, their bodies undergo several changes. These changes can be caused by a variety of factors, including hormonal changes, decreased muscle mass, and changes in metabolism. You are a nurse you know this. 😏

Me: First off I did not ask for my educational recap. I just need a magic pill to fix it.

My Doctor: 😂 😂 Ohhhh, Okay. Try this:

  • Eating a healthy diet: Eating a healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can help to keep skin, hair, and nails healthy.

  • Exercising regularly: Exercise can help to maintain muscle mass and improve circulation, which can help to reduce the risk of hot flashes and other symptoms.

  • Getting enough sleep: Getting enough sleep is important for overall health and well-being, and it can also help to reduce the severity of hot flashes.

  • Using sunscreen: Sunscreen is important for protecting skin from the sun's harmful rays, which can accelerate the signs of aging.

  • Seeking professional help: If you are struggling to cope with the changes that come with aging, you may want to consider seeking professional help from a doctor or therapist.

Me: You are extremely disrespectful.

Soooo, long story short. I did what she said. I join a gym I love and started working out 3x a week. I was already working on my diet by turning my backyard into an urban farm, and I'm not going to lie my sleep pattern is set to sleep is for suckas mode. But, I'm definitely seeing and feeling a difference in my body.
