Challenge Say What?

What was I doing again?

3-Day (Possible 5-day modified) Challenge (calorie cycling again)No drinks (soda or alcohol).Walk 30 minutes a day (minimum 5000 steps on my Fitbit).Track my food.Drink my water.
Oh yeah.

Day 1
I failed on 2 accounts. Minimum steps and water drinkage.

I didn't drink alcohol, I didn't drink soda. I tracked my food the best I could and I think I was under my calories.

But I'm getting my monthly friend. I can feel it because I am slug-like, yet have the cannibalistic desire to snap someone's head off with my own teeth. Check that. I did get my monthly friend, and oh how I hate it. I feel so miserable!

I'm so bummed! We're leaving tomorrow to camp and I have this atrocious thing to deal with. With the PCOS, I can get super heavy "friends" and you can imagine how much fun that would be to deal with in the raging heat and limited facilities. I honestly don't know if I can, really. I don't know what to do.

Today I need to grocery shop, pack, plan - basically do everything, work tomorrow morning, then set sail for the campground.

Overwhelmed is an understatement. Heat indexes are to reach 100 over the next 2 days. There is a heat advisory out. I don't know. It might be worth it to wait a day. Sad.

My challenge will be loose the next couple days. I have so many other things to do, I can't guarantee that I will be able to get my walks in and count all my calories. I'll do my best, but I really feel dragged when I get my period lately. My mom and grandmother had hysterectomies, and sometimes I wish I could just have one. Both of them hemorrhaged, so I worry that it might be what will happen to me, too. This thing really is a curse.

On a good note, I'm glad I weighed in on Monday, since today is a heavy day. Although it was only 1 pound up, so I'm hoping that's a good thing, and maybe by next week the scale will reflect a bit more of a loss. We'll see. Slowly but surely the scale has been moving, and I'll take what I can get.

Now on to balancing my checkbook and planning our meals, ignoring the heat warnings and cramps in my uterus. Wah.

I don't have PCOS, but I had other issues. I finally had a uterine ablation. It isn't quite as radical,as a total hysterectomy. But it got the job done for me. You might check with your gyn about that next time you're there.

Good luck with the camping trip. I'm not an outdoorsy girl, so that does not sound fun to me even without the added drama.
