DR bad mood - join me or snap me out of it!

On day 16 of DR, due to start stimming tonight THANK GOD! Hadn't been too bad bar some horrible headaches and disturbed sleep but am in a fowl mood today. I can't wait to get some hormones pumped back inside me! Has anyone else been getting randomly pissed off?
It's my second round, first was happily successful and we have DS, nearly 2. I feel a bit like I'm not as invested this time - emotionally I really am, completely - but last time I was all meditation, positive thinking and 9 portions of fruit and veg a day; this time I've just had to get on with it as I'm busier and have a toddler to look after, but am worrying today I'm affecting my chances negatively. Logically, I think it's mainly down to science and nature but I guess I don't want to look back and regret not giving it everything if it doesn't work. How have others been WRT 'giving it all' or 'carrying on as normal'?
Would it be very wrong to improve my mood with a sugar fix, or should I sip a peppermint tea and sit on my hands (and my rage)?

I'm just about at ET stage and on a short cycle so can't advise on DR, hopefully you'll feel better when you start stimming. We have one DS (natural miracle) and I've found it really hard to throw everything at this cycle, it's hard to with a small person to look after and put first. He's been a wonderful distraction and kept us sane through this. The main things I'm concentrating on are water intake (min 2 ltrs/day), plenty fruit, the odd listen to my hypnosis cds and acupuncture on key days. I'm definitely having the odd sugar fix to lighten my mood. Everything in moderation I guess. Good luck
