Well, it's that time of the month for me and I'm falling fast. Motivation is falling, along with energy, willpower and my mood. This happens every month; like clockwork. I know part of it's hormonal, but I just hate that everything just seems to go out the window during these first few days. All that hard work, I've been feeling great, doing good, sticking to my goals and this one week just seems to sabotage me and put me right back at square one.
I get tired more easily, especially after a long day at work and I've no willpower, motivation or energy to get up and go to the gym. I didn't sleep well at last night and didn't do my normal Friday housecleaning routine (I clean house Fridays instead of going to the gym) today. I didn't go to the gym last night cause I was tired. Eating habits went out the window. Had Frito Chilli Pie for lunch on Wed and didn't eat the rest of the day cause I was stuffed. Only managed one bottle of water on Thurs and didn't eat dinner (late lunch, but kinda healthy). Pretty sure that contributed to the fact I got NO sleep.
Super tired today - could barely function. On my 2nd bottle of water now. But had a cheese binge. It's harder to fight my cravings during this time; anyone else experience this? Any tips on how to deal?
Am hoping for a really good night's sleep tonight - am tempted to take something to help knock me out. Hoping I wake up tomorrow full of energy. My plan is to clean house and go to the gym, but I make no promises.
