So I must be doing something (or several things) right. If you have been following my blogs, you'll know that last month's invasion of the Red Army caused me a LOT of trouble. Irritability, bloating, cramps galore, and severe lack of "umpf".

This month, it came without first sending the archers as a sneak attack. The bloating is minimal, the cramps have been reduced to a slight tightness that is fixed by doing a full body stretch, and the food cravings have been less persistent. (This last part might be because I actually ate sweets every day at my sister's last week.) I've even been sleeping and haven't felt the gloom and doom I usually feel. Sure, I have my moments, but nothing as bad as I'd gotten used to feeling.

I feel like a human being! Perhaps this is because of the magnesium I've been taking, or the improved diet, or the very much increased physical activity. Maybe it's even the water or the sunshine. Who knows?

It's just all very cool. Not that you'll be seeing me on your TV dressed in tight white pants, dancing in a field, going on about feminine hygiene products, but I do feel good.

    They say that eating right & exercising does ease menstrual cramps...I never heard of magnesium though.

    God bless,

    I get the sweets craving also....I have now stocked up on like 8 different kinds of Sugar Free and Low-Calorie hard candies to help me get through those rough days of the month.....even got some that claim to taste like ice cream, because that always seem to be what I go for! Glad your monthly wasn't horrible this month. That is always a wonderful thing!

    Great job! It's probably a little of everything together!

    emoticon emoticon No tight white pants for you - hun!?! That was funny.

    I'm going to guess that a good portion of the changes you are feeling are because of diet and exercise. When I was in a shape other than round, I didn't have any real problems.

    Hey, one more benefit of living healthy - less PMS!
