I personally notice a huge difference a week or so before my period, as far as my mood, cravings, and self control. My cravings make me crabby, I usually end up giving in, going over my calorie range, and then feeling defeated and even more cranky. I feel like I want to give up for this week, once a month! Not to mention, I'm tired and even making it to the gym seems like a huge struggle (way moreso than normal).
Does PMS affect you the same way? What do you do to counteract it? I'd love to hear your input & advice!
