PMS is rearing it’s ugly head today. I should have known that it was not a good idea to weigh myself right before I’m supposed to get my period. But I thought I was eating really well and wanted to see if the scale reflected that. Well, it didn’t. At all. In fact, it appeared that I’d gained 3 pounds. Of course this set the tone for my entire day. I know it probably has to do with my period, but sometimes it’s just so frustrating. It’s like what can I change? I already eat pretty decently and run 20ish miles a week. Why isn’t that enough? Argh. I have some serious body image issues sometimes and it sucks.
I went for my 5 mile run today and spent the entire time moping. The run was hard and my heart just wasn’t in it. A shame since my 15K went so well. I stopped to walk numerous times.
I got home and was still pissy. Instead of looking through the kitchen aimlessly for something to eat, I decided that it might improve my mood to actually make a real meal.
I decided to make Black Bean Patties again from the PDQ Vegetarian Cookbook. These were really easy to make with only 4 ingredients.
First I cooked the burgers.
while Jason prepared the toppings.
And then we ate. I put the burgers on Rudi’s Organic Spelt English Muffins.
Success! And husband-approved too!
I actually did feel a little better after cooking and eating dinner. I just get so frustrated sometimes. I know that I’m healthy, but I’m not comfortable being the size that I am and I just don’t know how to fix it!
Fortunately, my PMS usually only lasts a day.
