Some things go together-

Peanut butter and jelly

Popcorn and M&M’s

Pizza and Pepsi

Some things on the other hand do NOT go together.

Dieting and starting your period?

Seriously my friends, do NOT try this at home.

    You couldn’t have told me this sooner? HA HA HA

    I never had understood why I feel the urge to start an exercise program two days before AF comes to visit…

    Cherry twizzlers & sprite so you burp a Shirley Temple…
    But hun, don’t you KNOW that you are granted immunity from dieting on those nasty days? I always grant myself at LEAST 3 days. Minimum.

    If the circus is in town, there is a rule REQUIRING pepsi and pizza.

    Really. It’s in the mother/woman handbook. Go look it up.

    Um, don’t periods count as mini=holidays when you’re on your diet? You know, like when you’re dieting and Thanksgiving comes along? Have I been doing this wrong? (No wonder I can’t lose those last 30.) 😉

    Oh yeah, those never go well together. You should get a diet-break during your period. It needs to be written into the rules of dieting.

    Let me know if you find anything to kick the munchies during AF’s visit….I’m dieting now, but she’ll be knocking on my door again soon.

    I tell you what, I did Weight Watchers on my own (just using their formulas to calculate the point value on foods, I already knew my point allowance daily for the flex points plan) and it really didn’t feel like dieting at all. I lost 40lbs over around 15weeks with some plateaus in between but it was amazing. The best bit for me was that I didn’t have to give up chocolate so I got to have my pre-period chocolate fixes too 😀

    Oh boy, I don’t usually stay on diets during my period. I’m always a LOT hungrier when I start it. And I usually need chocolate to make it through those days. Good luck.

    But look at it this way – you’re bloated right now. You probably don’t have to lose 20 lbs, PMS makes you fatter. You probably only have to really lose 15 lbs!

    Dieting always stops for 3-4 days each month. Or you can just go on the all chocolate diet.

    Does anything really go with starting your period?

    I’m not sure about the popcorn and M&Ms, but I’m totally with you on the dieting and period. But the good news is you won’t have to worry about your period when you’re at your event!

    The Target I shop at used to sell popcorn with M&Ms mixed IN-so addictively good!

    You should try, dieting, exercising, quitting smoking and period all at once. It can’t be done. Next time I decide to start any new goals, I will be checking the calender. And party mints and salty nuts are my downfall everytime.

    Ahhh yes-at the supermarket they should put the boxes of tampons next to the candy section, it would make things much more convenient for me!
