Which week are you on
in your monthy cycle?
Find out what it reveals about
what your day has in store:
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormonescope: Folks who have problems should come to you today. Rising estrogen and testosterone are making you confident you can fix just about anything, from a broken zipper to a busted love life. That’s because these hormones are sharpening your brain skills and making you think faster on your feet, so you really can come up with more clever solutions to solve sticky issues!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: You could end up on Santa’s naughty list this weekend if you’re not careful! That’s because high estrogen and testosterone are making you bold, daring and impulsive, a perfect combination for imbibing too much and ending up pulling pranks, spilling the beans and ending up in a notorious “Oops!” photo gallery like this!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel a tad guilty about all the cookies, pie, cake, chips, donuts and other goodies that you treat yourself to this weekend. On other weeks of your cycle, it’s a bit easier to summon the willpower to turn down high-calorie munchies and second, third and fourth servings. Not so on Week 3 when rising progesterone is amping up cravings and pushing you to consume more calories. The good news? This hormone is also prompting your body to burn up to 30% more fat when you exercise, so if you hit the gym, play Wii Fit or run up and down the stairs a lot, you could melt those extra helpings right off.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: It may be hitting you today that you didn’t reach all the goals you set out to attain last January. While regret triggered by plunging estrogen and testosterone may make you tempted to try to quickly lose 10 pounds, learn to play the guitar, enroll in grad school and write your novel all before December 31, there is something positive to look forward to: By the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, you’ll be in the first half of your cycle again which is when estrogen and testosterone will be rising, erasing regret and replacing it with new optimism and confidence that 2012 will definitely be the year you succeed at every resolution you make.
