Why is it that when a woman is coming to her TOM (time of the month) she craves sugar or sweat things?????
I just indulged in 4 granola bars....why? I don't really know why I took that first one to start with, I wasn't really hungry, I just finished supper. But I did! I am mad cause 1 lead to 2 to 3 and then 4, like really Ashley give your head a shake, what the hell are you doing.
So I did a little research on why we crave sweats when its that great time of the month every woman loves.
Eating sugary foods causes blood-sugar spikes, followed by sharp declines, a pattern that exacerbates irritability, anxiety and light headedness. These symptoms only lead to more sugar cravings.
All in all, I really didn't need that extra 2, 3, and 4th granola bar, hell I really didn't need the first one, but a gave into my god damn carvings once again. I really need to break this habit and stop doing these nasty things to myself. It doesn't do anything to me besides pushing me into depression a little more and gaining weight instead of losing it. So I get my self back on the ban wagon once again, for about the millionth time since I started this journey and I will keep trekking on. I am just hoping it wont set that scale up to much when I get on in on Sunday!
