I haven't talked about my down-cycles on this blog, so some of you will have no idea what I mean when I say I'm in one right now. Basically, it's a brief period of depression, usually lasting only a few days but occasionally lasting weeks or a month at a time.
The one I'm in now is mostly caused by yet another month of practically non-stop menstrual bleeding. Ugh. I spot for days and days (even weeks) after my actual period has ended, and the pms/fatigue/moody/yuckiness tends to accompany it as a bonus. Hardcore PMS for weeks. Yay me.
So, my diet and exercise plan is suffering GREATLY. I am so down and grumpy that I don't WANT to take the time to do anything for myself. I simply DO NOT CARE.
If I want pizza, I eat it. Whatever.
If I don't feel like drinking my water, I don't. Workout? Surely you jest.
Sigh. Hopefully it passes soon, but who knows, last month it was almost the entire month.
I'm sorry to be all whiny and pathetic, but I just thought if I'm making this a true diet journal I need to keep it real so I can track what happened later...in case I start gaining now or give up the weight-loss efforts altogether.
Cause that's SO what I feel like doing right now.
