THAT week

Remember how I said I was reveling in the good feelings last week because I knew the yucky feelings would show up? Well, they hit this week and the reason for them came in full force today. Yep, it's THAT week of the month.... Joy.

Funny thing is that I always battle the foods and emotions a few days prior and then by the day the physical discomforts start the emotions are pretty much getting back under control.

So, needless to say I haven't posted because the last three days I was having very negative feelings. On top of that, we've just been busy with life, so my posting is a lot more sporadic than before.

I'm feeling a bit better today emotionally, so hopefully tomorrow will allow me some time to post about some new things I'm learning and/or facing about myself in regards to my weight loss journey.

I'll leave you with a happy fact:
Yesterday I jogged for 2 miles straight at 4.5 mph, and I didn't even feel like I was dying until the last minute or two. With warm-up and cool down it ended up being a 35 minute workout on the treadmill. I was very pleased with myself. Today I did the bike for 20 minutes and then weights. Yay. :)


  1. Congrats on the awesome workout!!! Keep your head up it will be over soon

  2. Hey Leah, I'd love you even if your posts were negative. That's just part of it. But I hear you - some days life just doesn't leave time for writing a post and yes, some days, you just plain ole don't want to. I miss your writing when several days pass, but am also VERY glad you feel the freedom to post only when it feels right. Have a great day. Sharon
