So guys! Fun times this week. FUN TIMES. I got my period for the first time in three months. This happened last year when I reverse dieted and got my period again for the first time in a year -- you can read about it in this post.
(By the way, Nutella is my best friend during this time of the month, haha! :P)
Ever since I started cutting a while ago around April, I stopped getting my period. I have always had an irregular period by the way, but I don't usually go three whole months without it. I am glad to have it back, as annoying as it is… but my scale weight was ALL over the place this week. Literally up 3 pounds one day, down 3 the next. No macro changes, just hormonal craziness. All that to say, I decided to keep my macros the same this week to rule out weight changes caused by my period.
I think loss of period is pretty common among us girls in the fitness community and definitely can be a cause for concern. My dear friend Brittany posted a very helpful v-log a while back about this subject so I wanted to post it here because I thought it was so good! If you struggle with not getting a period, I definitely agree with Brittany that reverse dieting will help revive it as well as a little necessary weight gain. Just suck it up and DO what you know you need to do. :)
