Working with women day in and day out, I cover a lot of different topics of conversations, as you can imagine.
One thing I hear from my boot campers and 1-1 clients, is mainly how one week they can be feeling really sluggish in class & then the next week feel much better, increased confidence lifting certain weights, attitude to being in class, increased energy and so on.
One thing, I am a massive advocate of, is being in tune with your body. As a woman, I feel as though this is really important and due to the accessibility of hormonal birth control, for most women, unfortunately this has most definitely gone out the window for some.
Being able to know, simply, when your body is ovulating each month, the changes in your body to feel when you’re due a period, why you’re suffering with a difference in mood, one week to a next, why you might crave certain foods one week to another, etc etc.
There are not many women who I come across, who actually know the hormonal responses going on, to know WHY they’re feeling a certain way and when to give themselves a break in the month!
All these hormonal shifts are of course, going to make a difference to how you feel throughout the week, so naturally it will also make a tremendous difference to how you feel on a week to week basis.
Learning when your body should be feeling on top form to enable you to have more energy to exercise and eat well compared to the weeks that maybe you don’t quite so motivated, can really make a huge difference in your ability to achieve long term goals. It allows you to be patient on yourself and to acknowledge there will be harder times in the month compared to others.
So, that is why I am putting my first seminar in a couple of years and my first one of 2019.
“How to eat and train around your menstrual cycle”
