I have massive PMT (the Chinese herbs made no difference) and I am struggling. I even missed my morning workout this morning but I am going to go for a run at work shortly.
The major stress has been seeing the high high HIGH numbers on the scales this week. I know (KNOW) that it is just water but 66kg on Monday doesn't put you in a very positive frame of mind.
I am back down to 63.8 today but still look like a puffer fish - all bloated and squishy. This is the middle of Week 4 so I should have expected some weird hormonal shit sooner or later!
Not looking for sympathy, just letting you know I'm still here and still alive. I haven't caved in and gone 'off plan' so I know I'll be OK.
I have made some index cards with that stomach picture above on them with the following words:
I am an athlete
I am 15% BF
I love to exercise daily
I always choose healthy food
I maintain my ideal weight effortlessly
I love to drink water
I have one on the bathroom mirror, one on the bedside lamp, one on the treadmill and one at work. Maybe this will help me think like a skinny person.
