Period – the time of the month when you are snappy and there is an invisible “do not stand in my way” sign above your head. You feel like a bloated whale from the water retention and your arms are perpetually around waist as your face contorts into a less than pleasant sight.
At least that’s the visual of me over the weekends…
I had zlinch motivation to eat clean or healthy and was craving for junk and carbs. I tried to take my mind off food by keeping myself with the housekeeping but that made me so tired that I just dozed off when I rested. Let’s not even talk about the digits staring right back on me when I weighed myself. (Always a bad idea I tell you).
It’s easy to slip down that slippery road of self condemnation and allow myself to believe the lie that I am not going to lose weight. So yesterday, I decided that I needed some good happy endorphins and went for a run. It wasn’t much, just 3km but it sure felt good!
Although I was out of breath but I came home full of life and in a much better mood too. So who says that you must have chocolates to make you feel better during that time of the month. Maybe all you need is a good workout!
PS: I did cheated and had fast food and bites of chocolate. The key lies in eating in moderation!
What do you do to banish that PMS feeling every month?
