Here’s an all natural trick for getting rid of bloating during your TOM. Squeeze half of a lemon into a boiling mug of water then throw the half of lemon right into it. Let your drink sit until it's still hot, but comfortable to drink. Drink your hot lemon water and the extra water you are carrying will be flushed out of you.
I used to always use the excuse that PMS was keeping me from exercising; literally, I would miss days of work/school b/c it (PPD, severe cramps etc.) can be so debilitating. But this time is different: I spend more time on spark, researching and gaining more motivation from other women, etc., and now I'm eager to do crunches (which can help cramps) and/or get out an walk/do elliptical (rather than a hard run that I feel too sluggish for)! thnx!
