I think I figured out why it has been so hard for me to renew my efforts this week. I've been ravenously hungry, but also getting headaches and I know I'm getting enough food and water, so I couldn't figure out why... but then it hit me... it's that time of the month. So it's no wonder that I am ravenously hungry and feeling like I'm gaining weight even though I'm eating less. I just wish that I had a good solution to feeling this way, but the only thing I know to do is wait it out and try to be as healthy as I can in the meantime.
I also have to start getting myself back to the gym. The only exercise I did this week was a short walk with the dog and walking to work a few mornings this week. I definitely need to do more with that end of things. The thing is I am not accountable to myself if I go to the gym alone. I need someone else to come with me so that I make sure to go and so that we can push each other. Since my old workout buddy has moved away, gotten a new job, and gotten engaged; she doesn't really have the time to come to the gym with me. My other friend has her own gym and usually goes before work, so our schedules don't really match up. I might have to bite the bullet and try going alone. I hate doing that, though.
