i had a totally triumphant week - last week. this week feels like a totally different story. i'm feeling lethargic, stressed and bloated (the last one is totally my doing...a wedding, bad food choices and generally debaucherous indulgence)...and i need to break out of my funk! i want to keep the momentum that i've had for the past two weeks going!
i know there are probably a few contributing factors to my current predicament. one, i no longer have a tangible, drop-dead goal going right now...before there was always a race on the horizon. this is no longer the case. i did the 10K, and now i won't be running another race until the spring. i need to find another way to motivate myself, and i'm struggling with this.
also, i just started oral contraceptives for the FIRST time a few days ago. (i know, it's weird...but i waited for a looooong time to have sex, so i never needed bc in high school, and then when it came time, i started right off with the patch and then the ring.) i have to believe that this change in the hormones i'm taking is throwing my body for a loop. oy. also, i'm probably going to start my period any day, so that's gonna be great.
anyway, i'm concentrating today on getting all this excess sodium out of my system and getting back to a healthy eating regime. i have a TON of school stuff to do before tomorrow (ugh procrastination!) and then i'm going to see about going for a run. the weather's looking okay, so i'm pretty sure i'll have time either later this afternoon or perhaps in the early evening at my parents' house.
excuse my rant, but i just had to throw it all up and get it out of my system. i'm going to take this week on with a vengeance.
