Do you ever feel like you have to have someone's permission just to be happy? To live life? Then maybe it's time to start taking back that control and granting yourself the permission you deserve!

I might recommend for those sweet times to try a recipe called Air Cookies. Their light, fluffy and really good and it will help with those sweet cravings. I can find the recipe if you want.

I know how you feel and it sucks! I normally have my period for 2+ weeks at a time and I have a hard time fighting cravings of wanting chocolate :( and because I'm so heavy for so long I have no energy to anything. This time of the month I really have to find motivation and push myself to get my lazy butt up! I don't have alot of advice (sorry) but you are not alone.

For me it is a mixture of this and the poster above. I am anemic, and bleed heavy for 1-2+ weeks. I am on iron suppliment though and was told to double up on days when my energy is pretty much non existing. It seems to help some what.

Honestly, when I'm PMS'ing that is, like, the ONLY time I allow myself to eat whatever I want, because it seems like the ONLY time I won't put on weight. Plus it doesn't last long, and because I get super sleepy, I don't end up eating that much anyways.
