Yeah, I usually flare on Mondays, probably cause no one's home after the weekend and using the bathroom and also I am paying for the junk I ate over the weekend.  Sometimes if I get out of the house, I can stop going to the bathroom or go a lot less, but not lately.  I guess it depends on how bad I'm flaring.

I have my mini flares on the weekends too, I think it's because I don't have a normal routine, eat different foods, different sleep habits etc. So I try to keep my weekend schedule similar to weekday schedule and that seems to help a lot.
