Drat it!

It's been almost a week now, and I still can't run thanks to the pain in my lower left calf. Dammit. My training is going to pot!
I'm up FIVE POUNDS on the scale! I hate that scale. It rarely gives me good news. Sure, I'm not perfect in what I eat, but I haven't changed a thing in the last whatever. I'm certain it's my hop-along half thyroid. Dam-dam-dam! (yes, I know it's misspelled. I'm mad, but not mad enough to actually swear. I save that for when I'm REALLY mad. lol)
Now I have to make an effort in curbing the crap I put in my mouth (often dark chocolate and whatever else passes for sweets around 3PM everyday). The ironic thing is that when I put more effort at being "good", I end up eating more because I'm thinking about it too much!
Ugggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh. I can't stand this outofcontrol feeling. My weight control "baggage" is showing. I'll try to calm down, hold on, breathe, and be busy...until my next TSH blood test in 3 weeks.
I wish I had right thyroid lobe back.

Hope the pain goes away soon so you can get back to training. I hear you on the scale not giving good news - can't blame mine on my thyroid though. Probably something to do with my sweet tooth. Dark chocolate is my favorite food!

I think I'm going to have to officially give up my spot on the relay. It's just not getting any better. Muscle strains take SOOO long to get better.
And of course I just ate a few dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts. But the nuts are the GOOD kind of fat, plus the dark chocolate is supposed to be better too. See how I rationalize??
And now I'm not hungry for lunch, won't eat, but will certainly graze later on the junk in the kitchenette at work! Sheesh.
