I've had a couple days this week where I've been incredibly cranky for no reason that I could figure out. Sure, I've been stressing about weight loss, money, auditions, etc. but stress doesn't usually effect my mood so much. I've been eating more than enough calories as I said before, and focusing on getting protein as much as possible to help my body recover from these workouts. I don't usually experience PMS this way, but I should be starting my period soon, so I've decided to blame my mood swings on that.
I also got an email from my mom who I asked about my crankiness, and she mentioned that my grandma has an iron deficiency, so perhaps it's hereditary and I should focus on eating more red meat, leafy greens, and mollusks (too bad they're too expensive here). This makes a lot of sense to me because although I've been eating well, I haven't been eating many greens and I've been craving hamburgers.
Last night, the crankiness took over and I ate my feelings. Got take out with the fiance: pizza, calamari, and wine. Not the best choice, but it did make me feel better and I had a great night. Not gonna beat myself up over it, just gonna focus on a better intake for the rest of the week.
