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: You have more patience while putting together furniture, reading instructions, mapping out a new route and figuring out a computer program than you did during Week 4 of your cycle. Credit goes to rising estrogen and testosterone, which sharpen brain skills needed to learn new information fast and give you the resilience to get past minor setbacks without losing your cool.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Good luck thinking about anything other than the hottie in the office, the cutie in the coffee shop or the gorgeous piece of eye candy on your commute. High testosterone has your libido raging and high estrogen is making you want to flirt up a storm.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: I say this regularly and it’s worth repeating: Today’s combination of progesterone and estrogen makes your body burn up to 30% more fat when you’re active. Better yet, this fat-melting effect lasts all through Week 3 and for most of Week 4. So, go biking, take a brisk walk or work up a sweat by scrubbing the heck out of your tub.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may feel a little “off” today. For instance, you may have a slightly queasy stomach, a sorta headache or an energy level that never quite gets lift-off. You may think you’re coming down with something, but you’re probably just may be suffering the side effects from plunging estrogen, which tends to sap your body of energy and vitality as it falls.
