As a busy woman myself, food is sometimes the last thing on my mind. There are clearly more important things to think about then what we’re having for dinner! Over the past few years, especially with two little ones, thinking about what we were having for dinner became more important – as did meal prepping.
We’ve all been there. You succumb to a random crying jag on your otherwise cheery run. Or you snap at your significant other for being the no-biggie, usual-bit late. When your mood shifts dramatically, you might be wondering what’s up. We all have mood shifts at times, whether triggered by something real or perceived.
Waking up early isn’t for everyone. For some people, waking up for 5am works great, but for others (cue me raising my hand!) it’s not the easiest thing in the world. You shouldn’t force yourself to wake up at 5am if it doesn’t come naturally. And this is why.
Some studies note relationships between alcohol consumption and cycle irregularities, but generally only when alcohol is consumed chronically at high doses. When looking at moderate drinking, there may be no measurable change in menstrual cycle function.
Our hormones affect every single part of our bodies. From how our periods act, to how well our brains focus to our weight. When our hormones are balanced and working for us, we generally don’t notice it. But when our hormones are unstable? It might look like this.
Feeling low? I always ask myself when the last time I ate was.

Want to know what I see when I google superwoman? Endless images of a, usually, happy mother, juggling different things like it’s easy. PLEASE. Make me do all those things, and I promise you, I’ll be tired haggard, searching for a third coffee and just wanting to give up.
Mismanaged blood sugar can easily be the underlying root cause of your hormonal problems. In order to understand why blood sugar regulation is crucial to balanced hormones and symptom-free periods, lets first take a look at the hormones involved, insulin and glucagon.
Breast Implant Illness is a term that some women and medical practitioners use to refer to a wide range of symptoms that can develop after undergoing reconstruction or cosmetic augmentation with breast implants.
Hormones are complicated things to test. They change every single hour, of every single day. We have a 28 (ish) day cycle, and we need to stop think that we’re supposed to be experiencing the same thing every day. So, in some cases they are indicated to test. but sometimes, we don’t necessarily need to.
