I looked at the scale this morning and said, "I'll take a maintain any day over a gain.". TOM arrived yesterday, so between that and the PMS cravings leading up to it I was totally expecting this. I'm very content with it and just grateful not to be up.
If you haven't figured it out yet, I don't like to speak crudely or about very personal matters publicly; however letting you know that my menstrual period has arrived always seems appropriate as it's often the week each month when I either see a maintain or a gain. This is no big deal to some because they share very private information online, but I wanted to clarify why I share this every month.
I wonder if bloggers that share this info start getting on the same cycle like girls that live in the same house do? LOL Anyway, it's just always interesting to me the factors that surround the female monthly cycle and how it affects our weight.
For example, cravings for sweets and regular soda (or even diet nowadays) nine times out of ten equals PMS for me. An interesting thing I noticed this week was that when I would try and cut back on the sweets I found myself munching on crackers and other carb-rich foods. hhmmm....
It's another post for another time, but I'm finding that I do better when I cut back on my starchy, white carbohydrate laden foods (no surprise, I know...most people do.. LOL) so it's very interesting that right before my cycle that is exactly what I want most of. More hhmm...
Well, that's it for now. I will let you get back to your Friday activities. Have a great weekend and thanks for checking in!
