I don't know how it is for everyone but I feel so exhausted when I'm menstruating. I want to be consistent but it just seems difficult to do the same routine as usual. I really don't want to stop but it seems as if my body doesn't want to.

Any pointers?

Try doing the same things just not as intense. Or try some yoga. It helps with cramps and stress of menstruating

Thanks, Nicole.

Yoga shouldn't be done during menstruation ask any yogi. Light stretching is a better option.

I'm not exactly a woman (lady?) Because I'm 15 but I know whenever I'm on my period I have major cravings for food but also I feel tired, get cramps, and am not as likely to exercise.

Me too i feel very drained so tired . But i suffer from heavy periods and have to take tranaxamic acid to dlow it down even work is hard . Maybe try multi vit & mineral tablet eat more foods containing iron and have vitamin c to absorb the iron too :-)

Its that time for me too right now and i feel the same way. All I've been able to do is cardio. I had a recovery shake with pea protein. It seemed to help my energy levels and my cravings for sweets and carbs. I'm also drinking allot of green tea to help me not feel so sluggish. Maybe try the pea protein and green tea. It might help you out allot. Let me know how it wheels out for you if you do:)

Green tea sounds do-able. Can't do shakes. Have to try eating more protein when my stomach screams for carbs!!!!

You can always stretch after a hot shower! And try another facility

Also for your cravings eat cereal dry or with almond or skim milk!

Yup. Like I'm shedding my energy instead of my uterine lining. 

I don't push my body when I'm on my period. If I have any intense plans I do them before my period. I take it easy the first two days if that's what my energy levels allow me to do, after all, I also have a life to live. Usually on the third day I start feeling antsy and ready for action.

I find eating a higher iron diet the week of helps me. And more water to keep things moving.

I usually just do a walk around the neighborhood. It helps to keep moving even if it is low intensity
