This past week has been an emotional, hormonal roller coaster.....but it officially came to an end today!
Last Tuesday I had a job offer put before which would have me work from home on my own schedule. It was working as the Administrator of a First Nations Ministry close to my home. All of it sounded great but I never 'felt' right about it. My husband and I both prayed about it wanting to know what God's perfect will was in this situation. This morning I finally decided that if it didn't feel right then it probably wasn't right for me. It was hard to call the woman and decline but I had a great day after that call...I was free from that stress of trying to decide what to do.
My hormones had me all out of balance last week too. I am not sure how everyone else reacts at different times in their cycle but for me the hardest time is during ovulation. I become very grumpy, everything is a big deal and I crave food...any kind of food. So last week I had to try and deal with all of this...I did just okay...I made some really good choices and I made some not so great ones.
On the great side I worked out really hard all week. I did the Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. I really like this workout...It is like the 30 Day Shred only twice as long. On Saturday evening I went for my longest run yet, 7.5km, and I did it in 57 minutes. It felt great to run for that long but my hips and knees let me know the next day that I ran a long way.
The eating side was the not so great part...I just plain ate to much of things that I really didn't need to have. By doing that I caused myself to have a lot of negative feelings about myself...the all or nothing mentality kicked in. I did alot better with this cycle than I have done in the past and I look forward to the day when I do not go down this path again.
I didn't have an official weigh in this Sunday but a sneak peek has me staying the same. This coming Sunday is the final weigh in for the Bootcamp I am a part of...this should be an interesting meeting!
