Exercising with cramps

I think I can speak for nearly every woman when I say that the monthly cycle is the worse πŸ˜₯ (sorry guys) from cramps, spots, bloating, headaches, hot flushes & becoming a moody b**ch you name it πŸ‘Ή

I used to avoid exercising but I’ve realised that exercising is actually the best thing for youπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈπŸŠβ€β™€οΈ because it lifts your mood (well sort of lol) & helps with those dreaded cramps.

Aside from running I’m taking up yoga πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ it’s relaxing, therapeutic & makes you have better balance, become more flexible & relieves cramps & back pain.

The one thing that I always need though or shall I say crave during this time is food! And no not healthy food I’m talking chocolate, crisps etc 🍫🍩πŸͺ but I won’t indulge all day I will have cheat treats using that first day as my cheat day as you know the first day is always the worseπŸ˜–πŸ˜”πŸ€’ but still working out to ease those side effects.

Shame I can’t do anything about this big ass pimple on my chin that I get every month in the exact same place. WHY??? 😠🀬 I will be in hibernation for the next few daysπŸ˜‚ – (morning workoutsπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈchilled afternoons πŸ‘πŸ›‹πŸ–₯ & early nights πŸ›πŸ˜΄)

Nuts and seeds

So I’ve been snacking on nuts & seeds whenever I need a munch before lunch or dinner & my chosen 4 are:

1. Sunflower seeds – Contains Zinc which triggers matabolism which helps with weight loss

2. Pumpkin seeds – Good source of iron, victim, protein & keeps you satisfied for much longer

3. Whole Almond – Protein, fibre & omega 3 fatty acids & reduces belly fat due to targeting the fat in that area

4. Walnuts – Iron, zinc, vitamins & again omega 3 fatty acids as well as keeping you satisfied for longer

Obviously you don’t want to be consuming too much nuts & seeds as if you get carried away you’ll end up eating more calories during the day so I use my two little containers mixing the seeds together & the nuts together, literally a small handful altogether, it keeps me satisfied until my main meals & prevents unnecessary snacking on bad foods.

Breakfast

Start a new habit, have a healthy breakfast each morning, it sets up your metabolism & your more likely to make healthy choices throughout the day.

My breakfast choice this morning is muesli, fresh fruit & yogurt πŸŽπŸ“πŸ₯πŸ‡

Cheat day

So what does your cheat day consist of? Mine is nachos & cocktails, two of my favourite things 😍

Some people have said that a real cheat day is where you indulge all day so breakfast lunch & dinner beacuse if your going to have a cheat day it should be just that (all day) with no exercise at all but I think there’s nothing worse then wasting a whole day eating junk when you’ve worked so hard already so I’m sticking to a cheat meal rather then a cheat day & at least with some exercise on the day its not so bad & you don’t feel as guilty πŸ˜‹
