I suffer badly at this time of the month, sometimes I can't train because it is so bad. Mentally I lose the plot for a week or more. I have lost 6 stone over the last few years, and still have 3 stone to shift. I have gone up and down by a stone for the last 2 years, never got lower than 13 stone.
It is ridiculas as I am now a qualified trainer, so there should be no excuses, I have a good knowledge and practice of training theory, I know a fair amount about nutrition, and am constantly striving to learn more as there is so much to learn. But despite all this I struggle to keep motivated all the time and I think I can put it down to hormones effecting my moods.
1 week of swollen boobs and feeling grumpy and depressed, foloowed by 1 week of heavy bleeding and agony! That leaves only 2 weeks to pick myself up and getting training again!!
I must say though, I have just started on evening primrose oil and zinc and magnesium, and a couple of other supplements so given a few weeks to kick in they may help.
Does anyone else here have the same problem? And what can help!!? xx
