Taking a tip from Cynthia
Cynthia at Luna Tail does a blog and occassionally writes on what day it is.. in her cycle I mean (if there are any boys lurking and I doubt it, be warned.. this post is going to be about Girl Bits) I, too, suffer from some nasty PMS... the older I get, the worse it is.. but I've noticed that since I've started working out, it's gotten better... But I've never really paid attention to where I am in my cycle... I know I'm when I"m going to get my period because I'm a rip roaring bitch the week before.. and I can't stop eating... it's crazy. I've hesitated keeping track because I don't want to be anticipating things, but maybe if I track it, I can keep tabs on what helps... so I'll also be adding in what I ate that day...and what exercise I got  (with the help of The Daily Plate) I have NO idea what day I'm on.. or what to start with.. is day one the day I start my period? or the day it ends?  probably starts...  because that's pretty clear.. ending is sometimes, well...  dragged out... Maybe Cynthia will swing by and let me know what she uses as day one.

  1. You’ve probably been told by now, but Day 1 is the first day of menstrual discharge. I’m in my mid-40s and started to get night sweats. I did a hormone test (spitting in little vials every other day or so for most of a month to track levels over a cycle) and found, like many women, I have a bit of estrogen dominance. I have been using a progesterone cream 3 weeks out of 4 and it’s killed the night sweats and smoothed out some of the PMS symptoms. If you are in your late 30s or later, you might want to check out some of the books available on perimenopause and/or menopause. Christiane Northrup has one, and somebody wrote a couple of books called something like “what your doctor never told you about (peri)menopause.”
