Yucky Days

Yucky. That’s how I feel today. The last few days actually. I’ve been craving greasy, cheesy, bad for you food. Don’t worry. I’ve resisted. The weather sucks. It keeps teasing us with warm, pretty days. Then it’s cold and rainy again. I am so ready for spring! It’s so much easier to be in a good mood and get motivated to exercise when it’s nice outside!
I’m also getting frustrated that I’m not seeing any progress. 😦 I know that weight loss is a long, slow process and that I need to be patient and I will see results eventually, but I’m not patient! I’m losing weight (slowly!) but I can’t actually see a difference. And I’m not losing any inches.

If you can’t tell I’m in a bad mood. [NOTE: I’m about to talk about icky female stuff, so stop reading if you don’t want to see that.]
I started my period today. Again. I just stopped my period about two weeks ago. That period lasted a month. I’ve always had messed up periods. I won’t have one for a month, and then I’ll be on it for 3 months. I’m so not ready for another three month period. 😦

So anyway. This was kind of a pointless post. I’m just sad and frustrated and in a bad mood and I really really want to eat a pepperoni/mushroom/extra cheese pan pizza from Pizza Hut right now. (But I’m not going to!)

On a positive note, I went to the gym by myself for the first time yesterday. I had to sit in the car for about ten minutes talking myself into it, but I did it! It wasn’t bad at all once I got inside. I got a pretty good workout in. Did the couch to 5K on the elliptical (not the same thing, I know, but I have to start somewhere). Then I did it again on the stationary bike. Basically I’m just using the app for timing intervals. But I worked out for over an hour and was majorly sweating so I guess it was okay. Anyone have any tips for extreme beginners at exercise in the gym? I want to focus on cardio and I want a really good workout.

  1. I understand the periods stuff. Yeah it’s not appealing to talk about but it gets you craving bad foods, puts you down a bit and it’s understandable. I’m glad you went to the gym though :), that’s awesome! I like the elliptical at the gym, or doing run walk intervals not be treadmill. Anything with intervals over steady state is supposed to be really good πŸ™‚

    1. I think I was just having a really bad day. πŸ˜› And the weather was bringing me down. It’s amazing how much better I feel and how much more motivated I am with the sunny, warm weather.
