Soooo….remember last week when I said that I wasn’t going to break my stride? Yeah. I broke it. BUT it was for a fair reason and I dare anyone to defy my decision in stopping.
Here’s some TMI for you: PMS boob pains. There are only a handful of things that could stop me when I set my mind to something (two of which are the words ‘Hey, let’s go get a poutine’ and ‘Let’s go watch Outlander’) and the very tippy top of the list is all period related.
Now, I’ve worked out during my period, I’m sure a lot of girls have, but there are two things attached to said period (well, I guess one thing is something trying to DETACH from me, heyo…gross word play.) that will stop me from doing an aerobic exercise:
1) My boobs become two (albeit smallish) sacks of sandbag hell where it feels like someone is continuously punching me in the tit while another person is putting them into a vice. Hello sleeping in a bra because it hurts to move.
2) Cramps that feel like I’m being stabbed by a rusty machete and it hurts to stretch let alone do crunches.
This weekend I had to cancel on plans with someone because the cramps were so bad I couldn’t (and didn’t want to) get out of bed. Instead I had to force myself up to get Advil and then made socks all weekend while watching Scrubs because moving from my Buddha-like sitting position was like being skewered by a katana.
(Upon writing this I realize I know more swords than I thought.)
Anyway, now that that’s all dealt with and I’ve inexplicably lost 5 pounds (I’m going to assume it was the child I never wanted and water weight combo.) I can recharge, restart, and be a little more prepared for the next annihilation of my insides.
All in all…fuck periods. Period.

nuke a sock full of (long grain) rice for about 45 sec and tuck it across your lower belly. it will help that rusty machete-wielding crocodile biting your uterus feeling. smaller, thinner socks of rice (nuked for 25-30 sec) could be used on your boobs at night. hell, i’d pick up a cheap bra a size bigger just for that reason. all hail the period warriors!
Hahaha thanks for that! Great idea! 🙂
