I survived the PMS blues, but I'm still on my period and have gone through one of the worst menstrual cramps. I take Tylenol and all it does is take the edge off. It was so bad the other night, I didn't go to bed until very late because it seemed the cramps got worse when I was lying down.
Sorry for being so graphic, but my menstrual flow tends to be so heavy that I get too self-conscious going to the gym, I'm afraid some unexpected spots may appear on my work out clothes! Besides, I tend to get really bad headaches and I'm extremely tired when I'm on my period.
So, it's a Thursday and I have yet to work out. However, I have not overate on anything! My food choices aren't great, but I'm still aware of portion control. Okay, I messed up Monday night! I have to admit, I ate two small cheeseburgers, I was CRAVING it! But, as one bloggy friend pointed out it's NOT the END of the world. And that statement helped me get through the week, rather than beating myself for it.
At the same time, I need to be honest. If I go through another week like this, I will not be losing weight and that's the goal. So, my goal today is to get more sleep, I'm still getting headaches, continue to portion control, journal what I eat, drink more water and go to the gym with my husband tonight.
