Crappy Week

This week has gone down the toilet. Not a good week for me.

Monday I did Zumba

Tuesday I went to eat sushi for lunch with my boyfriend and planned to go to the gym after a quick nap, but I slept till 2:30 am

Wednesday I didn’t go to the gym either, I was feeling off, then figured out why. I came on my period. But I did go watch cage fighting with my boyfriend and drank a crap load of calories in the form of alcohol.

Thursday I went to the gym and Finished Week 3 of the couch to 5k. Then I went to Costco to get some bulk oatmeal. Ended up spending $150. For some reason I can’t go to Costco without spending over $100. I bought a huge box of protein bars that have 20grams of protein per bar. Oh I bought some Fish oil pills from there to add to my supplement regimen. Jamie Eason recommended fish oil so I decided to make it a priority. I’m thinking of adding Glucosamine and Chondroiton too, to help with my joints.

Friday, I went to bed at midnight expecting to get up at 9am to go to the gym for Bodyworks. Instead I slept till 5pm. I slept 17 hours. I didn’t eat anything except cranberry juice and Ibuprofen for my stabbing cramp pains. I feel so weak, tired, in pain and gross.

Saturday I got up by 5am and met my 10k training group from the Runners Den. After our run a group of us went to breakfast at Luci’s and I had Lox and Bagel which was delicious.

I have not gone to Bodyworks at all this week. I did not meet the two running groups during the week either because at 6pm it was 112 degrees outside and I’m not willing to have a heat stroke. I talked to a couple of the people I went to breakfast with and they meet at 5am at North Canyon High School to run every morning, so I might meet with them to get my outside runs in.

I don’t know how people exercise on their period. I just feel awful and want to sleep all the time. I know the scale is going to say I GAINED this week. I feel like I take 2 steps forward and 1 step back with my period.

Sunday Weigh In: 264.5 . I only gained .5 lbs this week! I’m really happy with that cause I thought I was going to gain 3 or more lbs. because of my period. After my period goes away I’m going to hit the gym hard. I plan to meet my new 10k training group friends at 5am on most days to train, then also go to Bodyworks and do the couch to 5k.

    That stupid Aunt Flo…ha ha. Try and get plenty of fluids and reduce your sodium. Listen to your body…to a point. Sometimes I can do way more than my emotions have me convinced of….ya know? Everything seems to become one big emotional and mental train wreck. Hope you feel back to normal soon.

    you cannot take care of yourself and ever become a fitness competitor if you sleep 17 hours at a time. That is dysfunctional and a huge red flag that something is just plain wrong. Healthy people simply do not do that.

      I’ve written in the past on this blog that the biggest thing I need to overcome is oversleeping. It is a huge challenge in my life that came along with battling depression.

    yea, i’m with sarah on the oversleeping. Do you work shift work or something? Have you figured out a trigger to your oversleeping? Do you still feel tired when you wake up? …Aside from that, you will have down days/weeks. Roll with it and keep it moving. I also find it more of an emotional issue for me when it comes to training while I’m on my period. I have found that I just have to make myself get to whatever training I have scheduled. The workouts sometimes end up way crappier than normal, but then sometimes those are really great workouts (depending on which way the emotional pendulum is swinging at that moment). You will get through it. Way to go on the weight maintenance for the week!!

      I haven’t figured out the trigger for oversleeping. Sometimes I stay up on the internet all night and sleep all day. I’m not going to let it get in the way of my goals. I just havent found a way to stop it yet.

    I think I read somewhere that you said you’re currently unemployed, so I imagine it’d be hard to have a routine when you don’t “need” to wake up for work in the morning or something. So maybe you should try setting a routine out, eg:

    7am Wake up
    7:30am Breakfast
    8:30am Gym
    10:30am Snack
    1pm Lunch
    4pm Snack
    7pm Dinner
    10:30 Go to bed

    Or something like that. Just allow 8 hours for sleep. Set 5 alarms at maximum volume if required, and put them on the other side of the bedroom so you have to get out of bed to turn them off. Otherwise the oversleeping will continue to feed the depression, it’s just an evil cycle.

    Re training when the Red Baron is in town, it’s so hard hey!! I usually struggle too energy wise in those weeks, and find that the weights I can lift are a little bit lighter than usual. But this is when mind over matter comes in. You WILL feel better after the workout, you just have to suck it up for an hour. Remember your goal, you’re gonna do this. Well done on maintaining your weight this week though =)

      yea it is hard to get on a schedule when you have nowhere to be during the day. I will try putting myself on one. I think it also isnt good that i sleep different hours almost every day.

      • Naz August 20, 2012 at 11:34 pm

        Yup, that’s why it’s important to implement a schedule. I was unemployed for 9 months in 2009 and slowly started finding myself sleeping in to the afternoon. So I put my schedule in place (pretty much the schedule I wrote above) even though I didn’t NEED to wake up early. It’s also good for your mental health because you come back from the gym feeling like you’ve already achieved something really positive with your day. Make sure your sleeping hours are pretty much the same everyday.
