I almost drove to Krispy Kreme for a half-dozen donuts today.

It’s one of THOSE days.

I’m also two days away from starting my period, so that’s a contributing factor to these irrational thoughts I’m having. Fighting the cravings and fatigue around this time is rough, but I’ve noticed that it gets easier the better I eat and the more active I am.

Does anyone else ride the struggle bus 3-7 days before their period starts?

It’s days like today that end up teaching you about grit and determination. If you can make it through these hard days without folding, you can do anything. 

I’m feeling amazing overall, and I know that I if I can distract myself with other things, I can easily make it through these next few days unscathed. I also like to ramp up self-care around this time. That seems to help. 

The highlight of the week so far is that I was able to run part of the trail on Sunday, this is something I haven’t been able to do in two years. I was pretty sore yesterday, and figured it would put me out for the week, but I’m about 90% pain-free today.

Anyway, I’m going to keep this short. If you’re struggling with anything right now, stick to your plan no matter what. Do not go to Krispy Kreme. You’ll be so much happier than if you give in to temptations and will you strengthen that willpower muscle.
