Get your grumpface on

Last night I got some solid thesis editing done, but before that I definitely had my tired grumpface on. I didn't realize how hungry, tired and cranky I was when I got home from work until after I began ranting at the cat (too loud) and the washing machine (not fast enough) and random bits of furniture (in my way...and...ding ding! Gentlemen, we have maximum crank!) I thought "hey! I should probably eat something!"
Thankfully J worked all night so he didn't get to share in the wonderful crank that was me last night.
Once I had a healthy meal, a hot shower and a few minutes of downtime I am glad to report I felt more like me again. I was ready to work and went on to have a productive evening.

It got me thinking, that altho I am trying to cut back a pound or two still hanging on from the holiday season, I think I need to tweak my diet a bit...I'm obviously not getting what I need. I'm out of protein powder and until I can get across town to get some more I'm out of luck. Maybe that was it? Who knows. All I know is I'll be looking for the crankface to day and will try and ward it off if I can. I was writing Dr. Seuss style poetry about my thesis stress last night so it can't be that bad :)

This morning I came in for spin and sculpt. I am tired, but got to bed at a decent hour last night. It's another day of life for crazy old me.
Here goes nothing :)

humm... may be look at what you actually ate on the day before you had the crank face attack? May be something you ate, someone has triggered it?! I agree that your body is prob. trying to tell you it needs something different. Did you know that you have inspired me to run? I HATE running, but I guessed I don't have to love something to know that it will do me good!

:) Cool! I'm glad.
I know it's crazy to say, but I love running...I can't much anymore with my knee being a PITA if I run very much. It's the whole being outside, moving meditation sort of thing. I've been forced into being more a biking/pliometrics person now, but I'll still go for a run when we're somewhere really pretty and keep it under 5K and my knee doesn't hate me *too* much...
I'm trying to tweak foods a bit...some more complex proteins and carbs to see if that will help fend off the grumps...we shall see!

Complex protein? That is something new to me! will google it!
I can not run at 9.1km/hr pretty comfortably. (I run on the trademill at the gym for 4k at lunch time, about 3 times a week) it takes me approx. 28 mins to do. My next running goal is doing 6k 3 times a week. I think that should take me less than 45 mins. :)
Having said that, i am kicking my ass with watching what i do and working out so hard, i am still not lossing weight. it sucks!
