Targets of Steel

I went to my first shooting competition yesterday.  It was a "steel match", meaning that it is an indoor match where you just shoot at stationary steel targets with a pistol.  Definitely more my speed right now compared to the IDPA or other matches that have scenarios where you have to run or shoot around things, sometimes things that are moving back and forth.

We only shot two of the three rounds.  Corrected for that, I was 24th out of 33 people, and the leader of the women who competed.  I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited about that.

Change Is a Comin'

I think that I'm perimenopausal.  Yuck.  It's not like I have actually used my reproductive equipment ever or feel sentimental about menstruation, but I do not relish the many years ahead of the symptoms of menopause.

Right now, it seems that low back pain, headache, fatigue, bloating, vague pelvic cramps and intermittent crankiness (more than usual) are the symptoms.

Anyone else of my cohort going through this?  How are you handling your symptoms?
