I love having my period. Maybe most women don't, but I do. It's probably because my cycles are so irregular and when my period finally starts it feels like I'm "normal" for at least the duration of my period. The best part, however, is knowing that my body is cleansing itself in a way. I feel like each time my period comes, it's a fresh start.

==========

* banana

* baby romaine and arugula salad with flax and olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, pepitos

* carob coconut shake (regular way)

* one date

* chopped sweet peppers, onion, avocado with lemon, olive oil, chat masala

I absolutely agree and all my friends think I'm crazy! I actually have a super regular cycle and I can also feel myself ovulate - Most people think that sounds horrible, but it makes me feel very in tune with my body, y'know? I think the human body is a brilliant machine and menstruation is just proof of that :)

I can sometimes feel myself ovulate, too. If my cycles were more regular, with me ovulating every month, I'd probably be able to tell, too. I know exactly what you mean...it feels great to be in tune with your body. It's amazing all the things that human bodies are capable of doing without us even thinking about or acting on anything!

I can feel myself ovulate, too...but mainly because suddenly and out of no where I get this cramping that lasts a few minutes and then disappears. Then I know I've ovulated!
