 you get your period?

I have been crampy all day(was expecting it to come today) plus just having a horrible day anyway(slammed finger in truck door, 2 teething toddlers, ect.) so I was thinking of every excuse not to do Insanity tonight. Then right before I go to work out I get my monthly visitor. :'(

But I still pushed through and I actually feel better. No more cramping! :-)

So do you still work out?

Yup, I sure do!  Like you, it really helps me feel better in the end.  I sure do have to push myself out the door, though.

I'm sorry you had a rough day!  I'm glad you feel a bit better, at least!

working out on your period can help with cramps.... going for a walk, light exercises can help

This exactly. Especially since I tend to indulge a bit with food. It makes me feel better to exercise it off lol
