Monthly Cycle

Friday, March 15, 2013

is it just me or is it normal for your monthly cycle to change when you start exercising? ever since I've started it's been strange. At first it didn't come when it was supposed to then it was intermittent. I finally have it but it's not normal it's very slow and light which to me is the opposite of what is normal. Also I have not lost any weight this entire time like for 2 days before it started and now during. I'm working my buns off.
I must be completely confusing my body or something. I mean going from doing pretty much nothing but caring for kids to working out 5 days a week or more must have stunned my system.
I have also noticed that the belly fat is not really dropping off me according to the scale but when I touch the skin around my belly it feels different, not as heavy perhaps, I'm not really sure how to explain the is just different.
Anyway I'm gonna keep doing me and stay doing what I have been and hope that when the cycle ends things change up a bit...because right now it's a downer.

    your belly is feeling different probably cause your toning up a little bit and it's normal to put on about 2 - 4 lbs during your monthly cycle. If you experience PMS you should start taking 1200 mgs of viactiv which is calcium I say viactiv cause it tastes like tootsie rolls hahaha but you have to be consistent with it for it to work and a lot of PMS problems go away but you don't see results for about 2 months but you have to take it everyday .
    It is normal for you cycles to be a little messed up during an exercise program , so don't worry. emoticon

    I t is normal to have changes in your normal cycle when you start an exercise program. Well it is true that you tend to lose more during monthly cycle. It is mainly due to bloating. I usually gain about 1 pound about a week before the due date. Once I have it, I lose about 1.5 pounds. so it is mainly bloating. About feeling different, I felt like this when I was losing weight. emoticon emoticon
