Here's a reason for ya - this is making me cranky. I don't like being cranky.
Okay, I don't know if this should count as one of my "official" reasons, but I have been alternating between down-in-the-dumps and cranky. I keep thinking that there must be more to it, something else contributing to the mood I've been in for the past few days, but I just can't think of anything. (Though my birthday is coming up - that could be making me cranky too.)
The scale was a little more friendly this morning, but it didn't cheer me up all that much because I'm still on familiar ground - I've been here before. I want to see change. Real change. Not this bouncing back and forth over the same couple of pounds.
Anyway, I've put it out there, gotten it off my chest, maybe now I'll cheer up.
Did my Slim Sculpt DVD last night which uses light weights. I always think that if I'm doing a workout with light weights I won't be working hard enough, but this just kills my shoulders every time. Obviously my regular weight workouts with heavier weights are missing some muscles. I'm going to try and do this DVD more often, until it doesn't hurt so much. That sounds funny, doesn't it? Anyway...I did a few extra moves with heavier weights afterwards to get the biceps, etc. That pads it out to an hour long workout.
Tonight, I'll hit the treadmill again. Or get outside. Either way, there will be a walk/run workout.
Hmm. I think this "getting it off my chest thing" may have worked. I'm starting to feel better already. :)
