I want to eat anything and everything in sight today. I have a raging appetite, and to top it off the scale wasn't very nice today! Note to self , don't weigh when you are PMS!!!
My skin is broken out and my face is puffy!
My poor Husband and kids have had a very irritable, emotional , grouchy Mom and Wife for the last few days. I have no desire to do anything!
So today I thought I would research and post some tips on dealing with PMS! Our bodies are amazing and if we are in-tune with them we can cope and try to be happier!
A great chart with some tips of what to consume and not to consume!
Healthy eating and exercise help a TON with dealing with PMS.
If you're thinking to yourself that you look fat, studies show that on average a person can gain anywhere between 1-4 pounds before your period! So we are not just imagining that we are fatter, puffier or bloated we really are and we have something to blame it on!
Cut the salt. Reducing the sodium levels in our bodies helps in prevent retaining water.
Body Aches try some Yoga , or relaxing in a LONG hot bath. Don't be afraid to take a pain killer either.
So instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself, and thinking of all the yummy food I'm craving. I am going to head outside and hammer out my run for the day! Then tonight I am going to hit a Yoga class and come home a nicer Mommy!
