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 feel like you’re being hit with lots of urges to go places you love, eat foods you enjoy and see friends who crack you up. That’s because rising estrogen and testosterone are pumping up with extroverted kind of energy that makes you want to do all the things that make you happiest!
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormonescope: Take advantage of high estrogen and testosterone energy to power through tasks you’ve been putting off. And if you time your day right, you can get even more done! That’s because research shows that Tuesday between 10 am and noon is the most productive time of the week for most people. The reason? By Tuesday, you’ve caught up on emails, phone calls and work left over from the previous Friday and weekend and you usually haven’t yet been deluged with to-dos for this week. And, 10 am to noon is when most of us reach our daily peak for pep and focus!
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormonescope: Like I learned (again) this weekend, rising progesterone is a cruel mistress: On one hand, this hormone helps you burn up to 30% more fat when you’re active during Week 3 and most of Week 4. Unfortunately, this hormone is also luring you all sorts of tempting fatty treats and upping your hunger, making it way easy to overindulge and cancel out all those helpful fat-busting effects. How well can you handle this precarious balancing act?
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormonescope: You may be pressing “delete” on Facebook posts or regretting what you say today. As estrogen plunges, you have less patience, which can make you blow your stack and say some pretty cutting remarks. But, this same hormonal plunge is taking away your confidence, making you worry about hurting someone’s feelings, spurring retaliation or even triggering a lawsuit.
