Ok, so what does postmenopausal mean? If perimenopause and menopause have their similarities, what is meant by postmenopause? In simple terms, it means menopause. Menopause is the ceasing of menstruation, and its prefix “post” indicates you are after that point, hitting the trenches with a hearty wave or middle finger to your fading cycles. (Excuse […]
Perimenopause Explained (Well, as best we can.)
Cindy Brady, Teen Vogue the training bra…in the shadow of every feminine development, an enthusiastic junior version edges toward the spotlight. Menopause is no different, packing along its sidekick, perimenopause, for our early confusion and enjoyment. There’s a lot of talk and frustration surrounding its symptoms on Body of Eve so here’s a quick drilldown […]
Menopausal, Aging or Simply a Pre-Cursor to the Grave?
As we keep blogging along here on The Body of Eve, I’ve recently questioned where I am as a woman in the circle of life. I’m creeping up on 50 years-old and health issues keep happening to me at such a regular cadence that it makes me wonder what’s menopause, what’s simply just getting old […]
Facebook’s Biological Clock
I’m not sure what prompted the attack, but my Facebook persona underwent some kind of major aging “makeover” over the past couple of weeks. It’s like one day I was identified as hip 40 year-old woman and the next singled out as an “Easy Spirited” 80 year-old. Did the algorithm Gods finally detect that sweater […]
Warning: This post might be a bit graphic for some readers! This week I had the pleasure of getting an “around the world” length tube sporting a GoPro weaved up my ass. The actual procedure itself was a piece of cake, but unless you are living under a rock—you probably know that the day before […]
Obsessed With Steps!
Over the past three years, there is something I wear on my body at all times that has become almost as essential as my wedding ring. If only my husband would have known 25 years ago that I’d cherish a rubber step tracker almost as much as diamonds. He would have saved himself several thousands […]
Another Belly Fat Tip – Mix Up Your Walking Routine
You can wait for someone to take you to the top of the mountain, or you can tie your shoes and climb there yourself. Following along in the spirit of Heidi’s great “belly fat reduction” post (http://bodyofeve.com/a-new-way-to-fight-belly-fat/) last week, I thought I’d share how I’m currently combining her recommendation to eat earlier in the day […]
The Happiness List
Holidays always make me reflective, whether it be the New Year and resolutions or the 4th of July and recognition of the many freedoms I enjoy as an American woman. But, let’s face it—sometimes we get caught up in the doom and gloom of life. Often holidays are the only time I get to take […]
Summer 2015 is Here!
It’s official summer, schools out and I was recently able to take a little plane ride with my 11-year old son to Southern California. Epic for me as I’ve been nervous about flying ever since I had my little episode in January. I know the blood clots in my lungs are probably all gone and […]
Thankful, Memorial Day 2015, Being Well (and, not Swell)
Memorial Day Greetings! I hope you are well this weekend, enjoying family, friends and some healthy holiday habits. I encourage you to take a moment and reflect upon how lucky we are in this country for those who have served—both present and past—to preserve the freedom we appreciate. Sometimes we forget to take a moment […]
