I have some CHOICE words for Aunt Flo! This is the first time in all my life that I have felt dizzy during one of her monthly visits! My hands and legs have been shaking and I feel like there’s a weight on my shoulders and back! And what’s worse, I don’t even want anything sweet to distract me. What’s the world coming to?!

I usually attribute the feeling weak/shaky part of my period to a serious dip in blood iron. Raisins and spinach are both good sources, also some red meat if you’re not veggie.

If I can continue this regular workout routine for 53 more days, I will have officially unfucked my couch potato-ness. :)

How did I find this? Because I’ve literally been glued to Pinterest and Etsy the past few days for some unknown reason (aka I’m in a funk) and this was a result of that. This was also a result of that:
