Where I really, truly don't feel like blogging, but I do so anyway

Let's see.... had my first workout with the 26#, was able to do more single handed swings than I thought I would. Volume is down, of course, (only 130 reps, and I did make a feeble attempt to clean and press the 26#, plus a few where I caught the bell in both hands and squatted. Transfers were easier than I thought, too) so I am even further away from 300 swings. It's alright, I know heavier is better anyway. I worked out later in the day, and I know it affected my energy and volume.

I was proud of myself that I avoided ALL bingeing during the dreaded pms, but then it all got shot to hell on the first day od the actual period (yesterday) when I ate crap like pizza and ice cream. Blech. Today is a swinging day and a serious tightening up of calories. Weight was unacceptable this morning!

I have a long ass list of crap to do before our trip. I'm pretty well caught up on laundry, just a lot of cleaning and organization to do. i like to come home to a clean house. I have all the kids clothes I want to bring set aside already, ironed and folded neatly. I even set out Addie's hair bows and such to go with each ensemble! I'm a little OCD, I know.

That's all here. My mind is preoccupied with a million things to do!

Edited to add- yeah, I did great with the food, until this evening. The 'all natural' Doritos that I buy for the kid's lunches did me in. I don't think I'd qualify it as a binge, because I didn't eat the entire bag, but nevertheless, it was mindless eating. Why is nighttime so hard for me? I can be so disciplined the entire day, and then, about 9pm, I cave in to the crave. I hate it.

Man, you've been training hard girlfriend....good for you!

I don't even do windmills...not enough time, in other words they're stinkin' hard!

Call me sometime and we can talk training. PS, anytime you feel "out of control" it's probably, officially a "binge".
I'm facing the binge thing head on right now.

Have a good and safe trip.

I have a serious inferiority complex when it comes to any sort of exercise: I never feel like I'm doing enough, and I always feel like I need to try harder. Any proud feeling I have is generally fleeting. It never feels like enough! I know once I do get to 300 reps, I'll feel like that's not enough, either!

Oh, yes, I'm back on the slippery slope with eating. Good all day, and it all goes to shit in a matter of minutes!
