Is it hormones or something else…? (and a recipe for a delicious tomato salad)

Tomato paprika salad |

Just tired…

Even though it is Sunday today I had a photoshoot featuring loads and loads of cookies. I ate them… Not even that much but too much in any case as I feel crap. Even hours later that sugar is still in my system.. I should know better really as the past couple of months I’ve been busy studying hormone balance. Everything there is to know about our precious hormones. And what do I do? I mess up mine. Yesterday I had the exam and while some things went right, I’m pretty sure a lot of things did not.

So I will know later this week if I passed or failed. If I failed… the next exam is in January but to be honest I keep my fingers crossed that I passed. Not feeling like doing it all again! Anyway, those cookies I was telling you about? Terrible for your blood sugar levels. Mine sky rocketed and than plummeted all the way down to the deepest place they can be. So there’s that… And I actually had made the resolution to be better with eating healthy. I guess I’m not there yet.
