The good, the bad and the extremely emotional

WARNING! This blog contains "women's" talk...

Ok. So I've had another rollercoaster this week. I know why, which is great, but the feelings aren't so much.

It starts with weight gain. I've been very carefully keeping within my calorie guidelines and trying my best to keep up with my other nutritional goals as well. I had been losing about 200 grams a day. And then Thursday morning I was up. I was a little disappointed but had a little chat to myself, did a little positive self-talk.

I had my trial on Thursday, and I thought I was doing extremely well. Until I was leaving. When the manager said something which completely threw my whole world off kilter. It was just a small thing, and upon reflection, I think I probably over reacted and misinterpreted. I think it was just a misunderstanding. But it has left me with doubt as to whether I will get this job or not.

By two hours after the trial had ended I was almost in tears. Everything was s@#!. The whole world was wrong. I was a failure. My little weight gain suddenly became a huge deal. My boyfriend probably thought I was hideous... Hrmmm? What's this? I've been so happy lately!

And then it struck me.... That sneaky little monster PMS has snuck up on me! Which also explained that weight gain...

I still don't know how I went in the trial, I haven't heard yet. Maybe I'm being too impatient expecting news already. Maybe I'm not putting out enough positive energy right now?

Well. There's nothing I can do about it, and stressing won't help, so I choose to focus on other things, like my new business, for now!

OH! WAIT! I had the back specialist yesterday. The good news is that based on the last treatment, he has identified that the issue is swelling, so I'm on anti-inflammatories for 1 month. The bad news is I'm still not recovered enough to begin any straining exercise, which means no yoga, no gym emoticon

    Best of luck. Sometimes the stress of work itself can make us feel depleted at the end of the day. Together with PMS, anyone would be emotional.

    Like you said, stressing about what WAS won't solve anything. Leave it.

    You've got a lot going for you--focus on the positive, my friend!
