Warning: Whining

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I usual revel in being female -- cuter shoes, lipstick, I can cry in public without being shamed -- but man oh man, it's not fun this month. My hormones must be in an uproar - I've had a migraine for about three days, and vicious cramps for the last two.

Naturally, I feel very sorry for myself, and yesterday used this as an excuse to eat certain things that are not clean. I kind of want to do the same thing today, but there's this quote that keeps rolling around in my head:


If I stuff my face with junk food because I'm uncomfortable and whiny, I will remain the weight I'm currently weighing. If I find a NON-FOOD WAY to soothe myself, I will get a DIFFERENT outcome, I will lose weight and get in to the 230s, which I haven't seen in years.

I want a different outcome. I want smaller pants. I want mastery over my cravings and I want to make my Frolicking Summer Goddess goal in Inside Out Beauty Day. I got close to my Earth Day goal, but didn't hit it, because frankly, I was doing what I always did.

Not this time, sucka! (talking to my cramps/headache/general malaise) There's a new sheriff in town who came riding in on a tiger.

So for today, I'm going to have a Gala apple and a cup of Red Zinger and I'm going to thoroughly enjoy it.

I've also got that complimentary personal training session tonight at the gym that won't let me quit. I was tempted to quit because I'm achy and cranky, but I know in advance that I will feel better and more positive after working out. She's a woman so I'll give her a heads up to go a little easy on me and I'll give myself a Hello Kitty sticker on my calendar for working out and a special star for doing it even though I really don't feel like it.

    Shark Week is no fun, is it? And, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it just gets worse and worse. Most months I feel like I am 14 again...ugh.

    I'm proud of you for sticking to your plan and going to your trainer! Yay you! Perhaps you deserve a treat of the non-food variety. I am partial to Lush Bath Bombs when I feel like I need a treat. emoticon A long bubble bath cures most ills.

    Working out when I have cramps always makes me feel better. You ROCK for this awesome blog, by the way!! LOVE your attitude. You will get that goal. I can feel how much you want it and the fact that you are thinking of it this way means you are SO DONE and ready for it! Proud of you, babe! XOXO

    P.S. My fave quote is: "To get something you never have, you have to do something you never did" SO close to that one you love! hehe Kindred spirits :D

    Staying on track is not easy especially when your not feeling the best but you can do it and the more you ward off the temptation of the food the easier it will become. Good for you for not giving up and still going to the gym tonight you will feel better for it. emoticon
