Day 101.

Weight - floating all over the place from 125 to 128 back to 125.

Okay, its official. I'm frustrated.  Its apparent I'm bloated. I am floating some serious water weight.  I have a multitude of sources - weekend traveling, not drinking enough water while traveling, being jet lagged and the great possibility of an early hormonal surge. I feel like I am stuck, not going anywhere. I know that is not true... but the mind is a powerful foe. Regardless, its affecting my mood.

However I am trying my darn'dest to not let it affect the quality of my workouts or my routined schedule. I did take Monday off from the gym to try to catch up on rest and sleep, even DH stated last night that I looked beyond tired and that I should get some sleep – he never tells me that unless its apparent.

I did go to the gym this morning and jumped back into the grind (admitting it was an epic battle to get up and moving this morning)... however post-gym mindset, I kept beating myself up that I did not work hard enough.  Total lie. Why? Because you can't tell me that doing 55 minutes of strength training and running a 13:57 mile and attending evening zumba class is not hard work?!  Exactly.  So shut your mouth, Brain... get back to work sweating. No one asked for your soggy downtrodden opinion.

I don't know what my deal is... I don't know if I am letting little snippity comments get to my head and mess up my A-Game... or if its hormones or both...  but I need to suck it up and get an attitude adjustment quick like. I don't have time for this! I've got work to do!

I can tell that this week is going to be brutal. A mental struggle with myself. Let the games begin. Welcome to the Olympics.
