double posting

Because I don't think everyone followed me over to the Blog To Lose site, I'll just double post here. I don't mind, really.

It's been a while since I've posted about my weight loss. Frankly, it's because I kind of didn't lose any weight at all. Between my birthday and the fourth, I went up about 2.4 pounds from my 10%. With some real effort, I lost 1.8 of that, so now it's getting over having a period and all *that* joy it brings and trying to eat careful.

I wonder what every other girl does when on her period. My personal cravings end up going all over the place and I just can't seem to stop grazing.

I also can't exercise because I have No Energy. In fact, it can get bad enough that I can't brain at all. I've made mistakes at work because I just can't think as quickly as usual.

What do you ladies do when it's that time of the month and you have no energy or motivation? How do you eat? How do you exercise?

I have cravings, but I don't have what I crave in the house. So, if I want sweets or chocolate I have to make something and I'm usually too busy or lazy. I try to have almonds, craisins, bananas, apples, carrots, etc. That way when I go to the pantry and it is bare (ha ha) I pull out a handful of craisins instead. Now you know my secrets.

One more thing. There are these fiber bars that have chocolate in them and I think maybe caramel. They're made out of oatmeal and they're on that guys best life recommendations. That helps with a chocolate fix. Plus, I buy yogurt. This food is all more expensive, but I think I'm worth it! And, I buy in bulk at Sam's.
