Which week are you on in your monthly cycle? Find out what it reveals about what your day has in store:
Day 1 (first day of period) to Day 7
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: As estrogen rises throughout your Week 1, you may be considering a minor procedure that improves your appearance, such as teeth whitening or a mani/pedi, or even a major one, such as veneers or a chemical peel. That’s because the higher the level of this hormone climbs, the more it makes you concerned about how others see you. And with a growing desire to connect with new friends and/or a potential partner, chances are, you’d like to look your best.
Day 8 to Day 14 or ovulation (here’s how to tell when you’re ovulating)
Estrogen and testosterone rise till they peak
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may want to finally launch (or re-launch) a goal–such as going on a diet, starting an exercise regimen or writing a book–thanks to high estrogen and testosterone, which rev your motivation and desire to improve your life. However, these same hormones are making you prone to going full steam right away and, perhaps, even overdoing it, for instance, by cutting two meals out of your day, doing a marathon four-hour workout even though you haven’t so much as done a single push-up in a year or trying to write five chapters of your book in a day before you even have a story outline. If you can, try to take it slow since study after study proves that small steps result in bigger, longer-lasting improvements than huge, sweeping ones.
Day 15 (or the day after ovulation) to Day 22
Progesterone rises; estrogen and testosterone drop for half the week, then estrogen rises again
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: Unlike Week 2 gals, your challenge is to keep up your momentum when it comes to sticking to your goals. Lower levels of estrogen and testosterone combined with rising progesterone sap your energy, confidence and motivation, which drags down your willpower to keep at it. To keep your passion burning during this low-momentum phase, try to remember the reason you want to reach your goal, for example, maybe you want to slim down to fit into your favorite outfits, you want to exercise to feel healthier or you want to write a novel to inspire readers. Research shows that focusing on the results can help you stay the course no matter what.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Estrogen and progesterone plunge
Today’s Hormone Horoscope: You may feel like you’re coming down with a cold, virus or just feel under the weather. Or a bug you’re currently fighting may seem more annoying today. The problem is that plunging estrogen is triggering aches and pains and it’s depleting your energy. So, any little health problem can get exacerbated.
