I just feel like I want to scream...

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I wonder if it's really a good idea to diet when you're on your period. Seriously, let's combine a time of the month when I'm already agitated, and then add the frustration of trying to keep track of everything I'm putting in my mouth while attempting to slowly starve myself (because let's face it, that's what dieting is).

Dieting right before your period isn't much fun either. I'm fairly sure your body actually needs extra calories at that time. So you know your body is just going, "What the f*ck do you think you're doing, b*ch?"

(dramatic pause...)

Obviously, I'm not in the best mood right now. But at least I still don't feel like quitting, or like binge eatting, or whatever...

If only I had some other outlet. Last year when I lost weight, I developed a habit of emotional shopping to take the place of emotional eating. Unfortunately, I'm about to quit my job and move to Dallas to go to school, so I really can't do that this time.

I need a new bad habit. Fill in the blank: "Emotional ______." Something that doesn't negatively effect my diet or my wallet. Anybody got any ideas?

Well, at least I just made myself laugh.

    Emotional Football shuffle. When you get really agitated, instead of emotional eating you should get yourself in a foot ball stance and shuffle really fast. Hope this helps you. ;)
