Which week of your cycle are you on?
First day of period to Day 7
Today’s hormone-cast: Fun-loving rising estrogen has you thinking about entertainment you can look forward to in 2010—such as new books, upcoming movie releases and social events.
Day 8 to Day 13
Today’s hormone-cast: Today’s high estrogen and testosterone give you the confidence that virtually anything’s possible in the new year—like kicking a bad habit, finding a new love, rekindling an old one, finding your dream job or even finally organizing your black hole of a closet.
Day 14 (or ovulation) to Day 22
Today’s hormone-cast: With estrogen at lower levels and progesterone rising today, the passing of another year likely has you reflecting on how fast time is speeding by and the many, many goals you still have yet to reach.
Day 23 to the end of cycle
Today’s hormone-cast: You’ll be tempted to beat yourself up over resolutions you’ve already broken or past resolutions you’re taking another shot at as descending estrogen turns you into a bit of a perfectionist.
