Female Issues: What do you do?

Friday, January 23, 2015

Yesterday I honestly felt like I was dying. Very rarely do I become completely unfunctional while my AF is visiting, but yesterday I had bloating and cramps wrapped completely around me, plus being my heavy day AND having ridiculously sore muscled from working on top of it. I didn't want to move. I felt dead lol. What irritated me more than that was that all day long I stuck to my plan, but later in the evening I nomed a crud ton of sushi, then had turkey joes with sweet potato tots for dinner and even munched on a couple handfuls of goldfish crackers after that. I don't even know what happened. Given that stuff really isn't that horrible considering I'm drinking shakes for breakfast and lunch every other day. I still felt like I was bingeing because I was. It was more controlled than normal and I did stop myself, but I felt guilty after.

Just curious what you do or should I do when that day comes? What are your AF tips and tricks to staying on track. How do you make the misery leave you. lol. I felt like a nail bomb exploded in my stomach.

    I had the same issue today and I think you are doing the best you can. I found myself in the midst of a binge and was able to stop, come back to sparkpeople and then do some exercises. I think it's important you came back!

    Seriously! @ Nskyline115 Yesterday was the worst ever, like I dreaded having to stand up.

    I'll have to pick up some dark chocolate, bubble bath, scented candles and a morphine pump for next month. lol My poor boyfriend.. I owe him a hug without my claws out next time. Maybe just a handshake if he's brave enough after yesterday. emoticon

    When aunt flow visits me I pull out the suds, candles, music, at home spa products and dark chocolate and dedicate the whole day to pampering me.

    Haha I enjoyed reading your blog. Isnt it awesome to be a woman on these days? Sometimes I like to relax on the couch with a heating pad, that helps sometimes. Or even a warm bath/shower helps.
