My sisters wanted to know about how this diet is affecting my PMS. I'm not one of those women who has to lock herself away for a week or use pharmaceuticals to get through PMS. My family reports that I get a little short-tempered and cry more often and make lots of chocolate goodies. I don't know what they are talking about. All I notice is that one week a month I am surrounded by idiots, have pimples, and I need chocolate and Ibuprofin.
I was actually surprised when my period started this week. My skin was clear, I felt good, I hadn't craved any junk food at all, on Wednesday afternoon I felt surrounded by idiots for a few hours, but they may actually have been idiots. I didn't really have any of the normal symptoms that signal that its that-time-of-the-month. No cramps. No cravings at all. Amazing.
What I ate yesterday:
- 6:30 AM fruit salad (oranges, grapefruit, pear, grapes, kiwi), a few walnuts
- 11:30 steamed chard, zuchinni, mushrooms, onion and tomato; pita stuffed with spinach and homemade hummus
- 4:30 dried apple chips, almonds
- 6:30 Jason's Deli: Big green salad (dark greens) loaded with veggies and balsamic vinegar, whole grain crackers and hummus (it was salty! I miss salt the most).
I ran today. Pat me on the back.
