Days 57-58 Metamorphosis

Hi everyone!

* TMI ALERT! * If you don't like reading about other people's periods don't read further!

Regrettably, yesterday (day 57) and today (day 58) are exercise-free. Not because I got lazy, not because I made up some lame-ass excuse (like I used to), but because I have been having a monster period. And I mean monster. Bleeding through the highest absorbency tampons I can manage every 2-3 hours and cramps that could kill an elephant.  I've had this problem before and when I went to the gynecologist I was told being overweight can really do a number on one's period.  I'm heavier now than I was then and I am paying the price.  I would have gone to the gyno already but I do not have health insurance until July, so I am dealing with it as I was told to before- heavy period = no strenuous activity.  I hate this because I really WANT to do my workout. More than anything. I was all revved up and ready to do it today (since bedtime last night, thinking this would die down by then) but no.  I am actually really upset. This issue and my school issues have put a big fat dent in my progress, which is why I am taking this meta as a learning experience and doing it better over the summer when I have no such obligations, and hopefully I'll have seen the doctor about my feminine issue and start straightening it up.

I may take a walk today but that would be kind of pushing it.  I REALLY hope I am able tomorrow! Come on body, I'm doing this for your own good. COOPERATE!

Sorry for my rant but I want you all to know I am not slacking by my own choice. I hate it. 

Have a great day today and get your workouts in for me.
