Understanding Your Menstrual Cycle
“You’re probably all too familiar with how your period affects your mood and cravings (hello, once-a-month chocolate fest!), but your period is just one part of your monthly menstrual cycle and a snapshot of how well your body is functioning. “Regular periods with no unusual symptoms mean your hormones are working properly, which bodes well for other parts of your body,” explains Nanette Santoro, MD, professor and chair of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Colorado at Denver.
On the other hand, irregular periods may mean that you don’t have enough estrogen, a hormone that’s essential not only to your reproductive system and fertility, but also to the health of your heart and bones. Too-low levels can affect your risk of heart disease, osteoporosis and even diabetes.
The important bottom line: All those hormonal changes your body goes through affect just about every aspect of your mental and physical health—for good and sometimes not-so-good. To help you understand it all, we’ve put together this comprehensive guide, starting with a rundown of what’s really going on during your monthly cycle.” (Follow the link below to see the full article). =)

It’s the end, another start.
Stat now: 125lb. 5lb to GW, 15lb to UGW. Half way done!
Taking a Tumblr break between hw. Drinking a lot of water and focus doing something is really my favorite.
Gym in the morning, eat a lot of veggies and clean. Gonna have some veggie if hw finish early. Going out for a drunk tonight, maybe wing night?
Beauty? Let me want to look at quietly.
Oh my crappy day….
Went to gym in the morning. Came back had a chicken salad, and a full bar.
Then I went out to eat, here it comes. First round: peas, chicken, beef hot dog, miso soup, salad, turkey salad, strawberry, grapes. Second round: peas, chili, salad, strawberry. Third round: oreo, coffee w/ cream, chips. Food were alright, but I guess too much fruit+chili+milk made a lot of gases. So I felt so damn sick. I felt like binging, and you know when your body know this it wants to eat more.
Then I went back for dinner after 2 hours. First round: italian vegetables, veggie lasagna, chicken, grapes, bacon, turkey salad. Second round: beef lasagna, grapes, cream, turkey salad, chips. Third round: grapes and pear.
I don’t know I definitely didn’t control myself today, but I feel I just indulged for a little bit. I tries so hard to fullfill the negative mood by fruits. Now I have brushed my teeth and did another NTC. I just want to eat more veggie, drink more water, don’t want to eat tomorrow. I wanna get these garbages out of my tummy.
Good evening Tumblr.
Oh thigh gaps. Those are beautiful things, but I’d like my legs be straight first.
I felt sleepy whole afternoon and now I realized it might be I have ate too much meat. Just craving today so I went to quail, beef, chicken thigh, and pork. Gosh it was good/greasy day. Haha I’m glad that my body tell me tomorrow will be better sin we are going to gym and we have a good dinning hall tomorrow dinner.
Hmmm, that’s tough, actually it’s one of my enemies - all you can eat college dinning hall. Before I could not resist, but now it’s getting better, I choose the healthiest to eat. And the only few times I eat at dinning hall are the times of the week I praise myself. Calories of the day will be higher, but I work them out.
Today, gym in the morning. When I cannot eat I had cucumbers and egg whites, then two plates of lettuce with few sides. Now I’m not hungry at all since lettuce took a lot of rooms in my stomach, but my brain already stopped working. Uh, for the sake of homework and the whole night, I guess I will got to make some food….
