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.
