normally, im pretty motivated to go to the gym 6-7 times a week, and sticking to a healthy diet, and staying away from processed sugars and salty foods. im just trying to lose a few vanity 5-8 lbs.
a week or so before i get my period, i get really hungry-cravings, and binge eatting, headaches, fatigue, and i just get this feeling of "my head isn't right." Also, I get really bloated too-which makes it harder to work out.
during this time, is when all my hard work gets wasted-especially with the cravings and bloatedness. I've tried taking more calcium, working out more, drinking more water,cutting down on caffine and sugar, and 5htp-to help with my mood, but nothing seems to keep me focused and motivated to work out n eat healthy. its just really frustrating.
Do any of you ladies experience this too? Any suggestions on how to stay motivated and focused during this time? Should i try taking an appetite supprssant? if yes, which ones do you reccomend?
