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 may be a flurry of planning, scheduling and organizing as rising estrogen amps up your desire to tackle projects and the start of a new year makes you ready to pounce on all your resolutions at once!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: If you’re single and looking, thoughts will turn to love (okay, or lust) today as high testosterone boosts libido, high estrogen has you positively giddy whenever you think about a potential mate and the new year renews your optimism about finding a special someone. Happily hitched? High hormones may prompt you to get out of a relationship rut and change things up a bit!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: With sedating progesterone on the rise, it could be difficult to muster the motivation to stick to any of the resolutions you picked for 2012. One trick researchers swear by: Take one teensy tiny step in the direction of the plan you want to follow, for instance, if you want to start a workout regimen, simply put on workout clothes; if you want to look for a new job, simply take a peek at an online job website like Indeed.com; if you want to start a diet, simply throw away any super-duper junk food, like chips or full-fat ice cream. Study after study shows that small acts like these can help propel you so you eventually make the big changes you want!
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may indulge in your favorite guilty pleasures today, like hours of reality TV, bowls of Doritos or a few mojitos. Blame for your wicked ways goes to plunging estrogen, which makes you more likely to turn to indulgent mood-boosting treats that threaten to totally blow every New Year’s resolution you had!
