And not in a groovy way, baby! Seriously. I feel funky and have the last couple of days. My cycle has been... shall we say, unpleasant. Heavy and uncomfortable. And I am coming to the conclusion that something with that is going to have to give. I just don't know what it is. I guess it's partially my fault because I fell out of my routine. Typically the week before I start (usually just 3 or 4 days, not the whole week), I know to have a glass of wine each night and to take an ibuprofen once a day. I didn't this time and I paid the price. Last month, I tried out Vitex for a week before to see if that helped and if I recall, it did some. But they suggest you start it and continue for a few weeks. But I don't want to have to keep taking something like that... mostly because I suck at remembering to take stuff! Which is why I've never taken BC for long at all. I tried one time, but I was terrible at remembering. Not to mention the stuff made me feel HORRID. I did lose weight, but there were only odds and ends things I could eat and I felt crazy emotionally. Gotta love life with PCOS! Although I didn't know I had it at the time. Then there was DEPO -- BIG mistake. I took it for an entire year, but I just never adjusted. After that, I said I was done. So even now, BC is not an option for helping my period. But the glass of wine and the ibuprofen always seem to help. The only other options I am aware of are to get prego again or have the ablation procedure. I'm not ready for either of those options, either! DARN IT! I guess I'm back to wine and pills! HA!
Anyways, decided to weigh today just to get a number for the week. Same as last week at 178.5. Which is sort of a bummer. Usually right after my cycle, I have a nice little drop. But I figured I wouldn't this week with that one super high day. So, it's ok. Keep riding the horse and all that. I was hoping for at least a half pound drop. I have less than 5 weeks until vacay and I was hoping to trim up a bit, but I'm not going to stress over it. I was hoping to get below 170 just for kicks. But it's ok if I don't. It's not the end of the world. lol I had just wanted a little extra leeway because sometimes you gain on vacay. I haven't really the last couple of times, because I don't change the way I eat much. But I still like that wiggle room. But it's fine. I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and do my regular on vacay and if I slip a bit, it's fine and I'll get it back in line. I'm not going to stress over it. I think that is the theme of the week -- stop stressing. Now, if I could just stop feeling funky! That would help A LOT. LOL
Because of the funk, I plan on taking it fairly easy again today. I need to pick up a bit, dust, and do a bit more laundry. I want to try to lift, but only if I feel perkier by this afternoon. If not, I will at least get in a walk/ride. I may try to get my vitamins in here in a bit and see if that helps... I've slacked on those A LOT lately. Again, I'm terrible about remembering to take things. But I gotta try. So, overall not much to talk about today as that is just about it. Think I will go stalk MFP for a bit and then get oldest out of bed. It's getting late in the day and that kiddo is still in bed! He's turning into a teen before I am ready. AH! I think I hear him. LOL Bet he's grumpy. lol Oh well, off I go!
