Were any of the days you were there an actual Sat. or Sun.? If so then there are your new normal S days. If they weren't, but because you were on a planned outing then I would count them as two NWS days (non weekend S days). Reinhard says to give yourself a maximum of 2 per month. So I would do that...

Sorry about your sore foot Jill. You can try soaking it in warm water and epsom salts (available at any drug store) or make a warm water and baking soda paste to put on it. That should help draw out any 'poison' so to speak and sooth the pain and inflamation.

Everything is 'safe' to do during your period. If you have cramps exercise can actually help get rid of them. I know it helps mine. And why don't you do yoga? Again it will not hurt you at all, and the gentleness of yoga again might help with cramps.
