C25K - Re-establishing an Exercise Program

I got a bit out of the habit of regular exercise with the excessive cold and bad weather we had this winter.  Since my running club wants to enter some races this year (and one member is training for the marathon!) I had better get it together.

It's not easy being the oldest, slowest, and only menopausal member of the club!

For fun I downloaded the "Couch to 5K" program (known as C25K) onto my iPhone as a way to getting everything revved up again. 

I just started today - are you getting your exercise either back on track or shaken up for "Spring Training"?

Menopause and Sleep

I hate to be the bearer of bad news.  But it turns out that menopause just goes on and on.  It's enough to make you wish for the good old days of cramps and annoyance.

But I'll also bring some good news about sleep - if you are a regular reader you might remember this post about my sleep despair and how I conquered it - and I just want to report that although other symptoms returned with a vengeance after getting a period, I'm cool on the sleeping.

Now I'm working on hot flash reduction.  Any ideas?
