No caveat, everything sucks

I wasn't going to do it. But, blogging is good therapy and I NEED to blog. PMS or not, I must feed my addiction in a shameless ploy to gain attention and/or sympathy.

Ok, first off - suffering from PMS on date night never ends well. It simply never does. When will I learn? It's always that bad. ALWAYS. I tried to be normal. I really, really did. Poor Michael. I really do not deserve this man.

On top of all of this, Wednesday's workout was another lame 4 miles - not 6 or 7 like scheduled. I swam a few laps and gave up for fear of drowning. I left a lot of snot in that pool. Swimming sucks rocks. Why I convince myself that I can swim is beyond any reasonable comprehension. My nutrition also sucks. I've cut my workouts short. I've gained 1.2 lbs. All of these things suck!!!

If all of that wasn't bad enough, I overslept this morning. I didn't get up until 5:45 AM. My alarm clock was in my workout bag and I didn't hear it go off. So no boot camp this morning. Speaking of which, our financial advisor says one gym membership has to go - so this is my last month at the Y. That means no more buttcamp. The F.A. does not understand my desire to remain bootylicious. There goes my Tuesday morning posting material.

Sucking in general doesn't suck, but this is just one suck too many.

I need wine. I need chocolate.

Do you feel my pain?!?!

...i woke up at 8 am today. :) 8:10 am exactly.

Your goal is not to swim. But to leave as much snot on the pool as possible (oh feeling a deja-vu momment right now).

My goal in the pool is not to swim. My goal is to drink as much chlorine as possible. Chlorine do get addictive.

Breathe in....breathe out. Now repeat after me.

It's only one week out of the month...

Plus, you've done buttcamp enough to know what to do on your on by now, right?

Gah! mipper! It's one thing to hear PMS posts, but an entirely different thing to hear about your PMS schedule?! ;)

You have good days (or weeks?) and you have bad ones. Chalk it up as the latter and try not to dwell on it *too* much. Next week is always a new week to start fresh!

PMS is the suckiest of all. I definitely feel your pain there...and your husbands.

First of all I would have to know what PMS means, but I am italian and the english language is still a mistery for me. Well you have all my support and if you want....all my chocolate (I love it) and my wine (because I don't drink alcohol).

12:23 PM  
Blogger LeahC said...

Oh I hate that feeling! I have totally been there before where everything is horrible and i hate everyone and yadda yadda.

Feel better! (wine and chocolate help :-))

At least you admit this addiction. I am still in the denial stage. Blogging when things suck is good therapy so I hope this helped you out. We like hearing about your misery.

I actually listed whining on my blogger profile as one of my preferred activities. I totally support your right to whine.

Now who will step up to the plate and explain to Stefano what PMS is...?

yeah, what did happen on a date? forget running, it's all the same. we need a reminder of good ol' days...

Me thinks you need some of Bolder's chocolate.

Take a nice hot bath (with wine, candles, bubbles adn music)... Everything will look better in the morning. :)

1:25 PM  
Blogger Bolder said...

send your F.A. to me, and we will have a heart-to-heart re your booty...

i hate swimming so much, i bought four of the 1/2 pounders... it was situation grimm...

i'll give one to the FA.

p.s. thanks for leaving your snot in the pool, with the others, ...

Blogger Fe-lady said...

M&Ms in my desk take a handful! (They really don't count as good chocoloate tho...don't tell my students!)
And I am buying some good wine after work at T. Joes. Will pour one for you after my spin workout...
feel better! (You KNOW exercise is good for PMS symptoms...get out there!)

2:02 PM  
Blogger Hilda said...

I woke up today... 9:30!!! Went back to bed at 7 instead of going to the pool as planned!!!
This things happen, should be about the moon combined with PMS!!
But still I don't feel I suffer of it, but my family thinks the opposite, at least I don't suffer!!

Chin up!!! Remember???

Susan you are so right, all that sucks! It sucks buckets of chlorinated pool snot off a flabby F.A.'s ass to be exact!

Reading your post makes ME want some chocolate.

May your uterus leave your body with such speed that you don't even notice.

I find biting on a stick sometimes helps to stave off the homicidal ideation...or get drunk...yes get drunk, that works.

Blogger mipper said...

sorry Chris...

actually, Flatman had a great remark Okolo... if only most men got that and chanted it to themselves once in a while... it's only one week out of the month. i bet wives/girlfriends would be a lot happier. ;)

Blogger Linda said...

Fine Susan, we will do something shameless this week after the Too Cold Too Hold run (for you) walk (for us). How about eating somewhere really good?

4:45 PM  
Blogger Tammy said...

No more butt camp??? Did your financial advisor not see your bootyliciousness??? Maybe he thinks it's just good genes (jeans). ha!

I heard Bold has some chocolate. I think if we team up we can take him!

Blogger Jen_runs said...

I feel your pain too Susan. PMS (and I have to agree swimming) sucks rocks.

4:59 PM  
Blogger Yvonne said...

What you meant to say surely, was Swimming Rocks!, right? No, it's not running or buttcamp-ing, but you can grow to love it, and it you.
My PMS is so bad sometimes that my boss actually told me in my annual review recently that I have to work from home those days. How'd you like them apples?!

Blogger nancytoby said...

I'm with Elle, as in, there is no PMS that 4 margaritas can't fix. Except I'm not so clear on her uterus's out-of-body experiences....

Flatman is going to die ... not sure when, but mate .... shut-up! .... leave a tub of ice cream outside the door or even one of those monster chocolate slabs and go camping ... a couple of days will do it

okay. you haven't gained weight for's just PMS weight. i promise. wait until next'll be a feather again!

Eat the chocolate. Drink the wine. Wake up tomorrow and it will be new day.

Amen to Susie's comment. I think CurlySu might be right too.

I might try Flatman's suggestion next month.

Put the gun (chocolate) down and step away from the vehicle. Susan needs some help, pronto.

Wonder how many dirt bags (Bolder) will end up googling "suck" and come to this post. That's right, you just invited a bunch of dirt bags to your blog. And you have a picture of your legs in the header. Oh boy, here come the perverts.

Hope everything turns around for you in the next couple of days. To provide some perspective, 1.5 pounds is not much. In fact, I bet you fluctuate that much every day anyway. Do you weigh yourself daily? Multiple times daily? I fluctuate 3-4 pounds all the time. My nutrition is great and my work ethic is great. Yet, my body still fluctuates. Whoe knew? Anyway, hopefully this helps. If not, tell me "suck" it or shove off or something.

I ate waaaay too much BAD food today, and didn't work out. Bleh.
One thing that doesn't suck?

Blogger angie's pink fuzzy said...

Oh, man, I feel your pain! I wonder if that is part of what's happening to me...early onset PMS. Of course, it could just be that I'm cranky in general.

How come *your* gym membership has to go? I'd throw a fit to keep mine. (If I had one, of course. That would be the first step.)

Swimming sucks rocks anyway. And 1.2 lbs could just be a good bowel movement (yes I know *gross* - but true). It could also be water retention.

Okay, since no one else did it, and I've already gone to the TMI point, Stefano, PMS = Pre-Menstrual Syndrome. You know, the week before a woman's monthly flow when her hormones are out-of-whack, causing her to feel cranky, out-of-sorts, crave chocolate and wine (or is that whine?), ben & jerry's ice cream and to do everything possible to avoid exercise. If said woman were to actually exercise, get extra sleep and avoid coffee, chocolate and alcohol, she would be able to cope much better. Supposedly (according to studies). But don't mention that to her during PMS. Unless you want your head chewed off.

Can you believe that when I first married J, he thought PMS was all in a woman's head?!?!!? 10 years later: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

don't stress, just a few more days to go.....I normally drink thru the misery each month but I am determined to cut back on that so I won't try to encourage you ....but the chocolate is a different matter! You could always combine the two vices and gargle ice magic (liquid chocolate!)

Final Score: PMS 4, Runner Susan 0.

The bootylicious blonde from Dallas was shut out of everything she holds dear because she just couldn't serve up the homerun ball to Michael. Like Ernie Banks said, "Let's play two!"

[Where the h_ll am I going with this anyway?]

Thanks Susan, it is so redeeming so know that I am not the only one who leaves snot in the pool. ;)

"desire to be bootylicious"

This is why I come to your blog! You crack me up!

I can't believe your office is bailing on the gym membership. I bet they go back to it after they realize how much healthier and less pricey their employees are when they are healthy and happy.

11:59 PM  
Blogger Scott said...

I'm tempted to go toe to toe with you in a 'my life sucks worse than yours does' but there isn't a man alive who could win once the PMS card has been played.

Susan, I love your postings. They make me laugh...(which to me is one of the best things one can do for another) now, please sweetie, put away the gun...

Tell your FA that once a month you need to go to Italy...seems they dont have PMS there. Maybe Stefano has an extra bedroom????

Okay enough whinning, who needs a gym anyway. Hit the road and run an extra mile and then reward yourself with chocolate. If you do intervals you get to have 2 pieces!

46 comments! Good grief!! I'm sure getting that many comments from people has perked you up!

I bet if you fired the financial advisor you could still afford the gym membership!

Blogger iliketoast said...

i'm with rae (ihatetoast on iliketoast's sign in...oh, so naughty). fire the FA, keep the gym. fa gives you depressing advice. gym gives you a perky booty and perhaps free look-sees of strapping young bucks.

stefano, pms is why you might hide from the wife at times. i don't get it. mark just annoys me one week a month, but i'm sure it's not me.

Oh, you're already getting enough attention!

Blogger robtherunner said...

You know you have not posted since Thursday?

Because I know your posting patterns I know that you will probably not be posting again until Sunday. My good friend "Lady Lurker" wanted me to pass along the message that she gets antsy when her favorite bloggers do not post on a daily basis. She feels like she has lost touch with reality. Yes, you are one of her favorite bloggers. Even though she does not blog she enjoys reading all of ours. Hence the name "Lady Lurker."

Have a wonderful weekend!

Blogger David said...

I feel your pain, well, sort of, not the pms stuff, but the running life can be stressful, psychologically as well as (even more than) physically. Anyway, my advice is to start drinking heavily :-) More wine! I love and drink plenty of (red!) wine, daily. My doc sez my running and my red wine consumption probably accounts for my high HDL (good cholesterol) levels (105+). In fact, he told me to cut back on the running (after see some of my black toenails), and don't worry about the wine drinking, lol. Anyway, enjoy, and good luck. David.
