Thanks for all of the feedback. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who struggles with this particular week each month. I get a back ache that lasts for days...but will get on my bike anyway! (might make it feel better?)..
I'm not a chocoholic by any chance....just seems that things I can typically avoid, creep their way in. I ONLY think of candy bars during this time...otherwise...I bypass them with ease!
It's as if my body TALKS TO ME and I am not in control...does that sound weird?
I will survive it like I have all others...just wishing there was a little "stay on track" pill I could take for 5-7 days!! LOL
