Day #20: NO INSANITY - For the Ladies

Day #  20 of my 30 day Smoothie & Raw Food Challenge


Word of the Day: "Listen to your body and your body will thank you later"

It's day #20 and I woke up feeling sick. It's that time of the month for me and I was feeling lethargic and my energy level was down. 

Possible Reasons: 
- Didn't take my Vitamins the night before 

True Reason:
Menstrual Migraine

I suffered from three type of migraines:
- Stress migraine
- Menstrual migraine
- Food related migraine

I was able to diagnosed myself with menstrual migraine because I had headache/migraine episode two days before the 1st day of my cycle and this is not the first time that I am experiencing these signs and symptoms during that particular time.

- Decrease episode in migraine attacks (when from 15-20 days a month to only 2 days so far)
- No tenderness in breast during the time of the month
- Decrease bloating
- Increase energy level
- Understand the importance of listening to my body

Some things I need to improve on: 
- Sleep more hours

Good news: 1 lb more weight lost
