Typical LP length:
Re: TWW Tuesday 10/5
Typical LP length: 10/11 days
Testing: I keep saying if af is late more to convince myself to wait.
R/R: I have so much brain fog it’s ridiculous. I feel like I’m at the mental capacity of an 80 year old. Surely it’s because I’ve always got so much on my mind, but like how do I make it stop?! Seriously, does anyone know??
Month/Cycle: 1/1 AL
Typical LP length: 11-12
R/R: I’m going to go ahead and jump in here since I think O was yesterday (and I tend to spend a little less time in the TWW anyway with a shorter LP). I saw that autumn squash soup is back for the season at Panera and now I’m dreaming about when I can get it. I have an unhealthy love of that soup.
@paytonpedro When I’m having a foggy day, I make sure to write down everything I need to do/ remember. That seems to free up some of my brain space since it can stop trying to remember all the things for me. Stay strong for at least a few more days on waiting to test!
Timing: -3, -2, +1
Typical LP length: 13 days
Testing: 10/11 (that's when AF is due)
R/R: I'm really enjoy the cool WI weather, but yesterday was all rainy (which is nice as well), but made of a long, long day!
@paytonpedro - if someone figures that out, they need to let everyone know! Because I feel that on a deep level!
@abjm0325 - OMG is it! I need that soup like STAT!
@paytonpedro I think meditation is supposed to help, plus it's relaxing. Maybe you can try a guided meditation app or some youtube videos? I find it's easier to concentrate overall if I periodically let my brain just not work for a bit.
@abjm0325 I have some butternut squash in the freezer to make soup eventually. Ive never had it before so I don't know if we'll like it or not.
@ajsanders-2 rainy days can be nice pnce in a while!
Typical LP length: 10-11 days
Testing: wfaf maybe
R/R: I was supposed to have an exam this morning, but I, half the class AND the professor got stuck in traffic so it's moved. Extra time to study, thank goodness. Today starts the crunch part of my week with 90% of my school stuff between now and Thursday.
CS/Q: nothing exciting
@fantasyflyte I have tried that and like guided daily devotionals but I just find my mind wondering and I get bored really fast.
@fantasyflyte I have made several variations on squash soup at home as well with varying levels of success. I tend to love it though, as it is creamy and can be sweet/spicy according to your preference. Put a little dollop of Greek yogurt in it with some toasted pumpkin seeds and *chef’s kiss*
@paytonpedro To be fair, I am not a huge fan of squash in general so I don’t think that’s a pre-requisite for loving squash soup. I think it’s more about if you like a creamy soup with a bit of the sweet/nutty squash flavor. I hate when I get to that point where I’m like “Maybe testing would show something…” but
@abjm0325 I'd love a nice squash soup but no Paneras here so I need to find a good recipe.
@ajsanders-2 We're timing twins. 😁
ETA: @fantasyflyte That's great you get extra study time! Good luck on the exam!
Timing: -3, -2, +1
Typical LP length: Unknown, possibly 11-13?
Testing: No plans, but maybe next weekend if still waiting on AF.
R/R: October marks the start of the busy season at work and it's feeling just a little intense at the moment. It's the ramp up before it gets busy when you know it's coming but it's not quite here yet... Taking it one day at a time and scheduling in some fun things so I've got something to look forward to when it gets hectic.
CS/Q: Had a temp drop today, expecting AF tomorrow probably but we'll see.
