I average 3-4 days of exercising a week. However, I want to increase it to 5-6 days a week. I wish I could I say that the past 9 days have been easy. It hasn't. I have had a few days where I just felt like throwing in the towel and just binge on cookies and ice cream. And then I remember what my husband told me; "Just do it, even if you don't feel like it." I don't have to like going to the gym. I don't have to like that I can't have that second helping of food. And every time I do that, I ALWAYS end up feeling good.
After I go to the gym, I never say, "I wish I didn't exercise." After I drink lots of water after just one serving of food and feel full, I never say, "I wish I could have eaten more." Doing the right thing, at least for now, is ALWAYS followed by a feeling of accomplishment.
Sundays were my weakest days, and since I survived last Sunday, I know I can do it again. Now, the Real TEST, my period is due next week and usually I eat as if my stomach was the bottomless pit. I know what I can do to combat the bloated feeling. In the past, I just made sure that I increased my cardio and went into the steam room. That usually worked.
How am I going to combat the cravings? All will power is out the window and my husband knows to stay out of my way. He knows not to stand in the way between me and my chocolate!
So, my bloggy friends, What do you do to combat those PMS cravings? Do you give in or try to have healthier alternatives?
Food for Thought: Do you know why they call it 'PMS'? Because 'Mad Cow Disease' was already taken.
