Some days it's hard to ignore those negative thoughts. I did not train hard this week. My food choices were poor. There was a wedding last night, and I gave into the yummy pasta bar, and had some soda. It was a blast, and I did dance so I burned a few calories. I gave into the rainy weather, today was a great day to lay around.
I've made a training calendar for the rest of the month. Here's this week's schedule:
AM: Off (weekly weigh-in)
PM: Training with Moses, followed by Cardio
AM: 5K Training (begin with 5 min brisk walk, then alternate jog for 60 secs/walk for 90 secs for 30 mins)
PM: Strength training, followed by Cardio at the gym
AM: 5K Training (same as above)
PM: Cardio at the gym
AM: Bootcamp with Moses, or 0930 mat pliates
PM: 5K Training (same as above)
Now I have it posted, and plan to stick to it this week. Hope you can stick to your goals this week and make some progress!

(This was how I felt this morning)
This week’s weigh-in was moved to Wednesday due to Labor Day. I was pumped to have extra days to hit my goals, but then “George” came to town and put a kink in all my plans. Cravings, cramps, fatigue were hard hitters this week, and it was hard to stay focused. I had a few scheduled sessions with Moses, so that helped keep me accountable on my worst days this past week.
This morning I was planning on a gain. I stepped on that scale and was shocked! I lost 1.4lbs. It still was not my goal, but it definitely gave me a more P.M.A. (positive mental attitude).
Week 4 will be a short week, and then it will be time for a monthly re-cap. There’s a wedding this weekend, and tons of family in town. There will be temptations, but I have to keep my eyes on the prize!!

It's that time again, and man is it killing me this month. I'm tired, dehydrated, and suffering from PMS. I thought this morning’s gym session would help, but it seemed to increase my symptoms.
I'm happy that I had a session with Moses today; otherwise I don't think I would have made it to the gym. I didn't even want to cardio, but I committed to 30 minutes. This is about all I have accomplished today. I haven't had cramps and fatigue this bad before. It seems like whatever energy I had I used for my workout.
I planned on starting the couch to 5k training today. I'm hoping that tomorrow I regain my energy.
How do you combat your monthly symptoms, and find the energy for your day and workouts?
