You know what I hate? Getting my period.
That 10 day period of just before and during where I spike up 2-3 lbs because of water retention. It always throws me for a loop and drives me absolutely mad. I know exactly what it is and what's going on but for some reason I freak out every single month. I think the worse part of it all is the insatiable hunger and the cravings that come along with it. I need to find a way to ignore these symptoms of my PMS so I don't have to potentially do damage control every month.
I restocked up on my pills that I took around this time last year. However, the water pill I really like (Waterex) is no longer being made by GNC so now I am just taking their generic water pill. I have to take more to get the same effect of just one Waterex pill.
The holidays are starting to look up. I have a pretty sweet holiday schedule this year. I managed to get Christmas eve and Boxing Day off (yay 3 day weekend) and then I'll have an extra day between the 27th and 30th because I have Boxing Day off (counts as a stat holiday if you don't work it). Then I have NYE off and January 2nd (it's my regular day off) so an other 3 day weekend!
I should start looking into solidifying my plans for the NYE weekend. I'm either going to be hosting a large party or doing a double dinner date with T and her bf at our fave restaurant. Or if T bails (other plans) it will just be D and myself having a romantic night out (or invite my sister and her bf if they have the $$). I know dinner is not REALLY the most appealing but it really ends up being cheaper than going to a club dancing ($50+ tickets and then coat check and then drinks all night and possibly a hotel since we live 20 mins away) which can add up to over $300 for D and I alone. Dinner will only be $150 (for 2) plus maybe a bottle of wine or if $$ allows Prosecco or Champagne split between all attendees. Who would have thought a 4 course fine dining experience would be cheaper than an all out bash? It even runs cheaper than hosting a party (munchies, booze, decor, meal etc..) that can really add up.
Well time to get ready for work. The day must begin.
