I'm feeling much more positive this week. I figured out why I was on a roller coaster emotionally... Good ol' PMS. I used to suffer from this aliment for a long time. I hadn't gotten my cycle back yet either, because as a nursing mom it delays the onset of ovulation. I've been in the process of weaning my son as well. So I'm pretty sure that's what caused my violent mood swings last week. I felt like I was throwing myself the world's biggest pity party. Normally I'm a pretty optimistic person.
One good thing did come out of that funk. It was my decision to join WW (I'm not trying to promote Weight Watchers, because they are not paying me to do so). I went to my first weigh-in / meeting last weekend and it went fairly well. I never ever intended for this to become a weight loss blog. My passion for running is what made me decide to jot down my thoughts and such on this blog. On that note my running has been OK. Nothing spectacular to write about. I've been doing short runs (3-6 miles) a couple of times a week. I'm still lifting too. Future race plans keep dancing around in my head. I am thinking of running a half marathon at the beginning of April.
