Luteal Phase


Flashback to 2015: Recovering from torn ligaments in New Zealand, pushing through boxing in a moon boot for an unrealistic body ideal. I've since learned the importance of rest and nourishment, especially during the luteal phase. If you're on a similar journey, reach out to learn about healing negative eating cycles. Love you xox.
Luteal Phase

My body is aching... What is wrong with me?


This is a post from my Facebook page, 2015, after a trip to New Zealand, where I tore multiple, grade 3 tears in the ligaments in my ankle on Mount Maunganui.


Here, I am finding ways to do my boxing training in a moon boot with torn ligaments.


This is me forcing… not flowing. This is me in my masculine, not feminine.

Hahaha oh my, I look at this now and laugh. In what world is training, boxing, dieting and not resting…. Recovery? This was well before I understood how important rest and nourishment is.


I desperately wanted to be skinny and I didn’t understand the female cycle, I didn’t slow down and I did unhealthy things to get the body I wanted.


I grew up unhappy with my body. My incredible, healthy, body.


There are many reasons why I felt this way, but that’s where I found myself and it has taken years and years to get over different phases of eating disorders.


Any way, through this process I started to realize… sometimes I was really, really sore and I was getting injured a lot! And sometimes I was fine, and I didn’t know why.


I didn’t realize that we need rest and slightly more food at the luteal and menstrual phases of our cycle.


My body aches if I don’t modify my routine in the luteal phase leading up to my Menzies and if we don't slow down, we are much more likely to get injured.


Love you
