Bloat, Bloat, Bloat

Ugh, sometimes I just despise being a female of the species. I'm experiencing yet another marathon period again this month, today being the 8th day with no signs of slowing or stopping. This happened a few months ago, too... I don't know what's up with it, but it is most unpleasant.

Anyway, the point being that I feel bloated today, and the scale certainly reflected it. Like, above 300 reflected, which sucks the most. Oh, I know, it'll come off like nothing, because it is nothing, but man. Psychologically? I just never want to see that 3 at the front of my weight again. Ah well. Soon enough. It's nothing I did or didn't do yesterday... I had a clean eating day, got my exercise in, drank lots of water.

The funny thing is, just before I woke up this morning, I dreamt the number on the scale, almost exactly. And I remember in my dream, I was very upset. In real life, I was just surprised and annoyed, which is a much better reaction, don't you think? Today's been a funny day, feeling slightly off due to aforementioned female trouble and because I had a rest day from running. I know I needed it, but I also really feel funny when I don't get to go. It's a really important facet of my morning routine now. Rest is important, too, though... even if I have to remind myself of that fact every week, even to the point of reading it on Hal Higdon's website or wherever else runners talk about that stuff.

Suffice it say that I am really looking forward to the weekend. I want to get a lot of stuff done, and I want to kick some ass.

I know what you mean about the discomfort of rest days. It has taken me a long time to get used to the idea that resting IS doing something to further the goal.

Hang in there!

Just think about the time in the future when you won't even see a 2 in front of the last two numbers. ;-)
