Well, I know I am doing well considering the fact I have been dealing with extreme cramps and slight headache and I am exhausted at night…I have been making the meals I need to make but did have some chocolate chips yesterday to cope with the first craving I have had in this new eating plan.
I tried exercising more by taking 16 flights of stairs down yesterday and forcing extra walks during the day, I hoped it would reenergize me and distract the cramps.
This morning I have sore thigh muscles and calf muscles and still cramps!! I just want the bleeding to start so I can move on from this stage!! So I am looking for advice on coping with PMS better next month, what foods should I focus on , what exercises will help me cope better next month?
I can so see why our eating habits get totally derailed at this time of month, its like we have little lions inside of us roaring for relief and the only way to calm the lion down is to feed it lol!
I know dark chocolate is good for health but how good and what percentage of cocoa is the minimum we can consider healthy?
Should I be using a Magnesium supplement? Should I be using a different herb?
Any advice is appreciated and I am staying positive depsite the lion!
