I've been doing a TON of research on cycle syncing.
I've downloaded the MyFlo app, got author Alisa's "In the Flo" the book and I've pieced together a good start for the month of June.
There are 4 phases of the menstrual cycle & you are supposed to work out and incorporate different foods to help your hormones in those periods.
Here is what my month of June is going to look like. My boyfriend is also going to do his own version (not cycle sync, obviously) but health challenge so we can do this as a team!
PS: it's not hard to know what phase you are in - the app basically breaks it all down for you once you input the last day & duration of your period, so don't get overwhelmed!
