28 days of Christmas: Day 12

XMAS Day 12: I believe in the power of your hormones! I am actually obsessed with HORMONES, lol! HORMONES control EVERYTHING!! I track mine daily, I analyze others daily, I research them constantly and I believe hormones can make you fat and have the power to make you thin. This belief is what has led me to build the body that won 5 figure titles the year after having my 3 and 4 children after a c-section and what has keep me buff ever since! This belief is how my client gain GREAT results so very quickly, and this belief is what the HORMONAL TIMING program is all about.

Many of you are long time followers of BuffMother.com and know some about what I am talking about, but for those of you who do not, I encourage you to start by simply tracking your hormonal cycle. Day 1 is the first day of your period. Things you should note daily include your mood, appetite, energy level, motivation level, focus, stress level, strength, soreness, water retention (weight), pain, libido, etc… Even tracking for as little as one month WILL open your eyes to the affects your hormones have on EVERY aspect of your life.
As you track for 2 to 3 months patterns will emerge…you will see when you are just “off” or when you are “ON”, when you feel confident and days when you just want to hide in a cave, you will notice what days are GREAT for sex and what days you typically say NO WAY! KNOWING all of these things about yourself will open up a whole new understanding of how to plan your life, allow you to set realistic expectations for yourself on a day by day basis. WE as women are NOT the same on monthly cycle day 5 and cycle day 25! You must realize that!! And account for it in your life, your fitness, your diet and your supplementation.

So I implore you to start to chart NOW!!
And ladies that don’t have monthly periods~ if you have ovaries you still have a cycle~ chart your symptoms and you will “see” when your hormones are being nice and when they are being naughty 👿

On to today~ Woohoo only 17 days left of our contest!!

  1. hormone tracking question….I’m on the pill so when my week comes for menstruation it usually takes up to 3 days to “start”…should I consider day one the actual day that it starts or when the pills say should be day one?

  2. Day 1 is the day you actually start your period.
    For the traditional 28 day BC pill, buffing and boosting phases are EASY~ the first 2 weeks of your pill pack are Buffing and the Last 2 weeks are boosting

  3. I just had a baby 3 months ago ,I havent had my periods since then although I notice spotting…
    Also ,It was a c-section baby..I want to exercise but dont know how to start as my c-section still hurts even when sneezing..Also,how should I start tracking my hormones…

  4. the best bet is to start buffing and then alternate buffing for 2 weeks with boosting for 2 weeks until you get your period. ALSO during that time be sure to chart your hormone symptoms~ daily write down how you feel, your weight etc… here’s the link to a handy chart

    As for your c-section– you have scar tissue in that area and it will hurt, but over time it’ll get better- Mine hurt for 2 years 🙁 But I worked through it as well as I could to get my abs back~ You can do it!!
