In the past week
Those gel packs are for more extreme electrolyte and energy needs and are very wasteful. I can see why you don’t want chocolate and I’m glad you said that because my first suggestion would have been chocolate cocoa protein balls. What about trail mix with nuts and seeds?
Thanks! I’m looking around at my options now. Feeling nervous but I’m looking for something that advertises something like “beginner’ or something like that. I hope I find something good. you all have me pumped about it now!
If you’re already struggling with weight going up and down from PCOS, then the odds are it will always be a challenge. But you can prevent it. There are lots of diets, strategies and tips you can use. Talk to your doctor. You’ll get some good advice there. There are some good articles online, too. Just be careful which ones you believe because t…[Read more]
Are all spin classes as intense as the ones I’ve seen on TV? I’m really interested in trying one but the intensity I’ve seen is daunting to me. I want to be challenged, but not pushed to the point that I feel sick.
I’ve tried adding weights to my wrists and ankles. I know it’s not a huge difference but it’s enough for me to start and then slip in any strength training I can during the rest of the week. Even if I don’t do more than one strength training workout then at least I’ve used my muscles more.
Oh my gosh yes! Check amazon or a lot of sportswear/ gear stores. There are goggles that you can get at your approximate prescription. You need to do a bit of calculating from your eyeglass prescription to what the one would be for goggles because it’s not the same, but it’s not hard to do.
I walk every day and enjoy it. I do some other cardio throughout the day. But for strength training – which I really want to do – my motivation comes and goes. I think my fitbit has something to do with it. It’s like it’s wasted time on my fitness record because it doesn’t register steps. I know it sounds stupid but since I can’t track it in t…[Read more]
Thanks Envirotodd and Kittykatt. I guess I’d better start this year with better footwear instead of using last year’s until it’s done. I don’t wnat to be one of those runners who ends up with ruined joints.
To me, it looks like the Plant Paradox does have you eating whole foods and pretty healthy foods, but it restricts things unnecessarily. Yes, it makes you eat healthy foods, but it cuts out healthy foods, too, when you dont even have to. Cutting whole grains, most beans, lentils, tomatoes, etc? Why? Countries that eat those foods have some of…[Read more]
I’m running but my main surface is sidewalk. What should I know so I don’t hurt myself? I like running around my neighborhood, but I’m not comfortable with being on the asphalt of the road and it’s boring to be on a track. Am I doomed to get hurt by being on the sidewalk?
I think it’s definitely harder to lose weight in your thirties than in your 20s. But in your 40s hormones really start changing a lot more, especially for women, and that slows things down in a way you can really tell. After that it keeps slowing especially for people going through menopause and who have gone through it. Men will see a more gr…[Read more]
Looking for weight loss tips meant for people with PCOS. Not the stuff you see everywhere. Anyone know some stuff from experience or that really do work? I’m not looking for fad diets, though. I want to stay healthy.
Thanks. I had a feeling it would be that hard and not just straightforward that shows exactly how much I burn and exactly how much I can eat. Thanks for the info and advice. This does make it easier for me to try to figure it out.
I don’t understand how much extra I can eat from having exercised in a day. I still want to lose weight but if I’m already cutting 500 per day, can I use my workout calorie burning to be able to eat more calories per day and still be down by 500 calories?
So say I walk fast for a half hour. How many more calories can I actually eat? I don’t…[Read more]
It might be safe for you. Diabetes isn’t the only consideration. Do you have other health conditions? If you don’t know or if you definitely have other health conditions, it’s always smart to talk to a doctor before you get going with a diet as drastically different from your usual one as those ones are. Keto, for example, changes the way yo…[Read more]
I think unless you’re planning for using it for just one day, so it’s just a rare thing, I’d go for a light stainless steel instead of plastic. Why take the risk? Get it from a good brand you can trust. They’re very light when you get a good one.
