I let yesterday turn from a rest day into a slippery slope day. I was great until I got too hungry. My husband and I went grocery shopping, and then out to dinner cause I was starving. I then proceeded to make hormonally craving based decisions, and the end of the night wasn't pretty. I'm noticing I do this about 2 very consistent days a month. I'm on month 4 and am really seeing the trend. I think I need to ULTRA plan those hormonal days because my self-control seems to be even less. Good feedback and info for me to really take it. I'm back at it today, meals planned and prepped, and a 2-hour bike ride. The only maddening thing is that between 2 bad days and hormones, I'm up 7 lbs. I know that will go away as soon as I'm back for a day or two, but dang, I didn't eat THAT much. I can feel my monkey mind and judgment starting to chatter, and all I need to do is focus on doing what I know works:) I am adding pilates to my routine this week, and am interested to see how that will feel. I found a beginner online class, and I'm not sure how it will go, but I'm here for it.

    I've never tried Pilates, but after my first full body strength training I was DEAD the next day... But it got way easier even just after that first time! And it's very satisfying to get stronger!

    Good luck. Wish I had a sol'n for you, but I think having to ultra plan is the sol'n.

    This is nothing but the truth. The hormones and cravings are real. I never noticed before because I ate poorly all the time.

    Not sure where you live, but if you have a Club Pilates nearby, go check them out! The first class, is free! Itโ€™s a great opportunity to try out the different equipment, primarily the reformer and itโ€™s a no pressure come as you are environment. not intimidating at all, lots of normal folk, all there to try something new.
