It seems like it was not too long ago that I posted about feeling reckless. I am really feeling that way again.
Being a woman isn’t easy. We have HORMONES! And those hormones do odd stuff to us, particularly once a month! I was really feeing bloated this last week and just irritated and uncomfortable in general. I also had not started my week out with my usual routine as I was traveling for work. We had a potluck later in the week which also disrupted my usual routine further.
I feel I can adapt well and after four years as a LT member, I also can navigate a potluck and eating out pretty easily. This week it is just not all falling into place. I am tired. My foot/heal hurts from my planter’s facetious and I just don’t feel like exercising. On the drive home from work one night I thought about Reeses peanut butter cups. Once the idea is rooted I just can’t get rid of it. I wanted frozen yogurt with Reeses peanut butter cups!
I went home first and made a sensible dinner. That is a the first positive. I still wanted frozen yogurt and I actually had to get into my car and drive to the yogurt shop to get it but that is what I wanted to do. My whole drive there I kept telling myself “I don’t need to be doing this.” I didn’t need frozen yogurt, I just wanted it! I loaded up my yogurt cup (they had the yummy no-sugar-added variety I like, another positive) and added some Reeses cups and coconut. I also decided I would take it back home to enjoy it fully and not just scarf it down on the ride home, my third positive.
I guess my inner toddler (thanks Virginia for the great descriptive word) was satisfied and taken care of. The bloat feels better today. I suspect after I fully adjust to my new day shift schedule at work I will also be re-focused and continue to power through. I also suspect that my WW meeting this week will also help me re-focus. I get to head back to my favorite meeting with my favorite leader again now that I am on day shift at work.
