In the past week
I really went for it in the pool the other day and everything was sore the next morning. I felt like I must have run a marathon or something. I’m still not back to my full level, and I’ve been walking every day but I’m afraid of losing my progress. What should I do to keep active while my body is still sore from overdoing it while swimming? Do I…[Read more]
I think the one that sounds the most reasonable is the one that lets you eat for eight hours then fast for 16. It still lets you have water the whole time that you are fasting. If you just have a late breakfast around 11am, then have a good healthy snack in the early afternoon around 2pm, then have dinner by 6pm, you’re good!
I’ve been thinking about this because it’s messing with my brain. I think it depends on the person and the situation. I have friends who absolutely have to run to feel better. It’s the only way they can burn off the excess energy keeping them anxious. They’re not sprinting or anything. It’s more of a jog-style. But still, it’s more than wa…[Read more]
I was about to tell you that no, running decreases stress. But then I was googling some research so I can link ot it and it turns out that ya, for some people, it can make things worse. If you’re already practicing good stress control, it will probably be helpful to you. But if you’re already high anxiety, running can raise your cortisol le…[Read more]
They’re not all the same. It’s really best to ask the farmer selling it for directions because even subtle differences can mean that if you tweak the way you prepare them it will be better. Like a carnival squash seems just like an acorn squash, but it’s sweeter, so you can tweak your recipe with that in mind so you’re not over-sweetening your d…[Read more]
OK, so research shows diets don’t work, according to so many headlines i’ve been reading. But if you go to the doctor to lose weight, the first thing they say is that you have to diet. Also, research shows that what you eat plays the largest role in how much weight you’ll lose. So what do we do? What’s the best way to change your eating whe…[Read more]
Are vitamin d supplements actually doing anything for me? Do they work? I can’t figure out what the reports mean online. Some say you should absolutely take the supplements, my doctor says to take them, other reports say it doesn’t do anything at all. What should I believe?
I’m looking for an app with some great fitness tracking. I track my general exercise here but I’m looking for detail to go with my fitbit. I don’t like the fitbit app, but I know the devices will sync with other apps. Any recommendations?
I don’t think there’s anything you can do to automatically consider yourslef healthier. I think it’s a great step toward improved health and a component of a healthier lifestyle but it doesn’t mean that if your weight changes you can automatically know that there is something specific that will be better about your health. You can probably sa…[Read more]
I have a neighbor who uses it, too. I googled it and didn’t like the risks linked with it. It’s not for everyone and there are a lot of possible side effects. Definitely a “talk to your doctor first” supplement. I think it works if your natural levels are low, but if that’s not the case, you shouldn’t monkey with it.
I guess there are some that are cooler. I have one that is like wearing plastic wrap until you’re in the water. IT’s great in the water but I feel like i”m going to bake until then. If anything is going to give me a rash, it’s the heat from the rash guard until I’m in the water!
