Second Wind

Monday, August 06, 2012

I struggled with hormonal depression last week. It happens pretty much every month. Thank goodness M is used to it. I went home from work on two days, and said hi to the girls, then went straight to bed. I didn't quit exercising. I still fit it in (even doing Zumba at 9:00p after my class reunion meeting on Tuesday last week). So it wasn't a total bomb. But it wasn't as good of a week as it could have been.

I am starting to come back out of it. It usually only lasts 4-5 days. I am still trying to hold my head up high and not worry even though my kitchen flooded this morning (dishwasher isn't draining like it should), and the blender started shooting breakfast smoothie out the bottom (sigh). There are other things to worry about right? I am just going to push forward and enjoy life!!!!

I tore my kitchen apart yesterday and cleaned it. I missed the fan blades (that I noticed at 11p - all the dusty mess that they are in my sparkling clean kitchen), and I didn't have time to take everything out of the fridge/freezer, and scrub them down, but that can be done next weekend. DQ helped me, she went behind me after I cleaned the cabinet or drawer out then re-organized them, she washed the fronts of the cabinets down with some oil soap. V tried to help, she vacuumed the lip just under the cabinets, but got bored of that fast. I was busy non stop from about 10:00a - 4:00p. I even moved the fridge, and scrubbed the floor under it. I didn't exercise in the traditional version, but I stayed busy.

Here is my plan for this week:
Sunday - Active Rest emoticon
Monday - 5K training, sewing with Heather emoticon
Tuesday - ZUMBA!
Wednesday - 5K training am - FLASH MOB
Thursday - Str. Training
Friday - 5K Training
Saturday - Spark people videos (30 min worth), Wii Fit.

Have a fantastic week my friends!!!!!

    I go through that every month too! I always feel so bad because I snap at everybody and I'm just SO tired! I'm coming out of it now as well. Normally once my period actually starts it flips the switch back and I start going back to normal. Otherwise I'm a terror and feel so bad for my husband. I really need to stop using him as my verbal punching bag. I'm not cursing at him or yelling really, just really snappy and snippy, and *itchy. emoticon

    So that all sounds like EXTREMELY active rest. Wow! I should have spent some time in my kitchen, but started in the master bedroom closet. I did my husband's half and that wore me out. emoticon Looks like you have a FABULOUS plan for the week! emoticon emoticon emoticon
