I was really not in the mood this morning.
Actually, correct that; I really wasn't in the mood this week period.
I have very strong reason to believe it's my hormones that are making me feel really antsy and hungry at the moment, given the time of month, but it's rare that I actually wake up feeling irritable.
This is probably in part due to the fact I didn't get enough unbroken sleep last night - I woke up twice needing to pee, and another couple of times due to cats and/or boyfriend taking up my space.
I was also incredibly full after dinner - I'd really fancied a salad, but not a namby-pamby girlie one, a BIG FAT salad with ALL the things in it. This beast had EVERYTHING in that I fancied and it clocked in at just under 1000 cals, but boy was it worth it...
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I was just going to do a quick session on the bikes and rowers at the gym today (instead of weights), but the plan got thrown off by a fire at my local station, which meant getting off the train at a different stop and power walking up the hill for 15 minutes to the gym, by which time I'd managed to motivate myself enough to get lifting.
Will admit, I did get a little annoyed at one guy sitting around and watching me until I was finished (apparently waiting for the power rack), but other than that, I pushed through and completed the workout - and surprise, surprise, I feel better for it...
It also dawned on me, that 6/7 weeks ago, running for 90 seconds was really challenging for me. These days I can run for 25 minutes.
One day, I will look upon my weight lifts in the same manner:
Today's lifts will one day, be tomorrow's warm-ups.
Fortunately it should be pretty quiet at the office today, so I should hopefully manage to keep my cool.
PMT really sucks sometimes...
How do you motivate yourself when you really aren't in the mood?
And Ladies - what do you do to combat PMT cravings?
