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.
