Week of Hell

So this post may not be "male friendly", but I've just gotta talk about it. Once a month us women get visited by an evil little fairy that decides she wants to wave her tiny wand and grant us with a week of pure hell. Yea, i'm pretty sure that's how it goes. I told myself on Sunday that I was not going to give in and that I would prove to myself that i would conquer my little visitor. Yea, well, so much for that. I HATE this week for more reasons than just one! but the main reason, especially since I started BTWG, is that during this fun little period of time (no pun intended) I completely lose control of myself and my body. Not only do I crave certain things and eat everything in site, but I cramp like crazy, get horribly fatigued, my mood gets depressed, and I just plain dont feel like doing anything but complaining and feeling sorry for myself. I always have that little teeny tiny voice in the back of my head saying "keep going" and "don't eat that", but it's just not loud enough for me to listen! I am determined to figure out how to beat this, because lets face it, that damn fairy isnt going anywhere for a long long long time. I have a theory that it all depends on how strong I am the three weeks before it happens, so it's time to start over and give it another try!

  1. This 46 year old is here to tell you that you are 100% right - your "visitor" isn't going anywhere for a long time!!! I keep waiting for that little bitch to exit the scene, but no go. :)

    SO, keep on fighting back - like coming up with your sweet dessert that you shared that, NOT an entire bag of M&Ms. GO JENNA!!!!! (PS - on a side note that none of you really want to know but I am going to share with you anyway, DON'T EVER get laser hair removal done while on your period...I did a barter with a gal where she borrowed our condo for a week and in return she's zapping the crap out of my underarm hair so it disappears...anyway, she said "Don't schedule with me while Aunt Flo's visiting." Didn't listen, scheduled a session. OH MY GOSH - she was 100% correct that when you're on your period, hormones make your nerve/skin sensitivity 4000% more sensitive - I about came off the table every time she zapped me! MY POINT IS - all that wacky period crap Jenna shared is very real should any reader doubt it. And should any reader continue to doubt it, I suggest you not verbalize it to me or Jenna this week....or else.)
