I have to admit, this weekend has been really....... trying. And I believe it all comes back to one thing.
Okay men.... time to look away. I'm about to talk about female things. Like Aunt Flo, bloating, and cravings. So if you don't want to hear all of it, turn away now. Run!! Run away while you still can!!
So ladies, what is it about that time of month?? I always know I'm about to head down the Kotex path. I start crying at movies, or commercials, or hell, the bug that got squashed on my windshield. "Really now, how bad can it be??" you ask. Well, I will tell you. Yesterday, I started crying at the movie, "The Rookie." The Rookie?! Really?! Yeah, the one with Dennis Quaid about baseball? What the hell?!? A couple of days ago, I was watching a movie channel when I saw that "My Life" with Michael Keaton was coming on. I had to turn the channel before just the name of the movie made me break down in tears. As if, in this state, I could watch a movie about a guy who has brain cancer. Oh HELL NO!
Then what happens is that I want to chow down on everything in sight. And when I say everything, I mean everything. That kind of sucks when you are trying to lose weight. I haven't gone overboard, but let's just say that I'm not expecting a huge weight loss this week. *le sigh* (Btw, I did eat some bread yesterday. I had to throw it away before it became the unfortunate victim of pre-menstrual bread-icide dismemberment and slaughter. After which I just might have been put in a cell, talking to Clarice about fava beans and chianti.)
And let's not talk about the bloating. That's just kicking someone when they are down. I bet Mother Nature also practices her drop-kick with little defenseless puppies too!
Thank goodness this is only for a few days a month. Again I say, how the heck did men get out of this?! They get all of the easy stuff. (And for those guys who just might have read this, you can not compare getting kicked in the privates as compensation. Unless you want me to come to your house every month and rack you one. Just sayin'. ;)
Have a good week everyone!!
