On day Four:
I don't think I am the only person who suffers with this and all I can think is that my stress levels are high to put it politely 'that time of the month' seems to be happening 1-2 weeks later than it should which is obviously worrying.
This is how my day went despite this!

9.30am - Glass of water
12.45pm - Snack
2.30pm - Dinner An apple and carrot with a green tea
5.00pm - 15 minute walk
6.30pm - Dinner Baxters Autumn vegetable soup with a salad wrap
7.30pm - half hour of yoga
8.00pm - Green tea
8.30pm - Dessert Raspberries with a spoonful of low fat yogurt
9.30pm - Green tea
I have looked in to the reasons for bad "ladies times" it is called Dysmenorrhea! It is described as a dull, aching cramp... in the tummy and lower back... its the worst kind of pain as it distant yet there.
You can cure it with drugs such as ibuprofen but I hate taking pain killers! A hot water bottle can also help and I do love cuddling up to my bottle as people who know me will know! (any excuse)
- Back pain
- Diarrhea (nice)
If you don't want to use drugs than a natural way is to rest and relax before your cycle is due.
Cramps can worsen through lack of sleep and anxiety both in which I suffer from! This is why I exercise, meditate and do my yoga.
