Feeling Bad

I am having really, really bad PMS symptoms today. I haven't had them this bad for quite awhile so I wonder if I am also coming down with something. I have cravings AND nausea, headache, tiredness, cramping, and emotional overload. What I mean by emotional overload is I have that sense that I am carrying 16 china plates stacked haphazardly in my hands, and just one more tiny thing is going to cause them to crash to the floor and shatter. I hate that feeling!

Anyway, I am trying to take good care of myself today by resting and having some down time (which I have not had in ages), sipping hot coffee and tea, and trying to eat well and not go overboard. I need some kind of warm comforting dinner... maybe cauliflower soup. Hopefully by the end of the day I will have set those china plates down safely somewhere and feel a bit better.

I hope so too. It is so hard when our emotions get away from us like that. Stay in control and don't let this set you back with your eating plan.

I hate PMS. Fortunately knowing that it is coming and temporary helps me deal with it, but it still stinks (just to a slightly lesser degree!

It is so hard when we feel like we might go off course. We've all been there. It will pass.
