Every 28 days. Every 28 days, I shall create a new habit. Every 28 days I will be in absolute bliss. Now let’s be real, I’m 33 years old and the menstrual cycle is nothing new to me. However, how I now handle “the monthly visitor” is new.
Let me tell you how this new habit started.
I was at work one morning wandering around the building, minding my own business. I decided to venture into the break room to see what free things I could find and low and behold there was a German Chocolate Cake from Frost Bakery. I took one slice (since I hadn’t ate breakfast) and decided to pair it with my coffee. So I nibbled on the cake while I continued to wander around as I made my way back to my office. With each bite of the heavenly chocolate/melt in your mouth/toasty coconut cake, my soul smiled. Mmmmm. That cake was soooo good. As soon as I got to my office, I sat my (unfinished) cake down and went back to get slice #2.
On my way back to the office with slice #2, I wondered if I was being greedy. It’s not even 9am and I have 2 slices of German Chocolate Cake, a cup of coffee and with 0% productivity. I returned to eating slice #1 as I mulled over my greedy behavior. Since I could come up with a conclusion, I decided to return to the break room and retrieve slice #3. (I wanted to make sure I had enough to last me the rest of the day.) This time, however, I did tell my colleagues that there was cake in the break room after I retrieved slice #3. (It was none of their business how many slices I’ve already gotten.) And that it how my begin to build the perfect “Every 28 Days Box.”
During the twilight hours a couple of weeks later, I awoke to terrible back pains and cramps. It was just awful. My entire pelvic structure ached. Seriously, I vagina bone hurt, my lower back hurt and I felt as if I had a million of trapped-gas bubbles in my belly.
Hubby, being the smart husband that he is, asked, “Would do you need?” My first reply was, “Chocolate. German Chocolate actually. Can you take me to Frost Bakery?” On the way to Frost, he stated that I probably needed some medicine too for the pain and bloating I was experiencing. Soooo, we got a huge slice of German Chocolate Cake, stopped by Walgreens and got some Midol. As soon as we got home, I fixed a cup of coffee, popped a couple of pills and let the German Chocolate cake make love to my mouth.
Afterwards, I realized I was not only pain free, but I was gliding a little as well. Yep, perfect combination. Now to pair my “Every 28 Day Box” with a sensual foot rub from Anthony…….I’ll just closed my eyes and smile.
These are some of my thoughts, questions, comments and "could-care-less"...
