Oh the lovely leg cramps. They are the worst. I used to get them every once in a while and then when I started running I was getting them all the time. I searched the internet for solutions and here’s what finally solved them:
I’ve been a fan of Dr. Gregor for years. It was after reading his previous book, How Not to Die, that I decided to try eating plant based. I also have his How Not to Die Cookbook. So when I heard he was coming out with a new book, How Not to Diet, I was eager to check it out.
I’m always on the hunt for a good protein powder. So far, the OWYN brand is my favorite but I wanted to venture out and try some other brands. So when I found out that Grace Fit UK was coming out with protein powders, I jumped right on it.
When I first started working out regularly I realized I had a problem. I only had one workout outfit – a sports bra that was a bit too tight, leggings, and a loose shirt. Thus began the hunt for more workout clothes. This was a little overwhelming at first because there are so many options online for activewear. I tried some from Forever 21, Fashion Nova, Amazon, Gymshark and more. Here are my favorites.
Whitney Simmons’ YouTube channel got me into strength training. Before I discovered her channel, it hadn’t even crossed my mind that women could (and should) weightlift. It’s not something I had ever been told. She really got me wanting to put on muscle and it really jump started my fitness journey. Needless to say, I am a fan. So when I heard she was coming out with her own fitness program I was very excited.
Today I thought I would share the health and fitness myths I used to believe. This is all from personal experience so if these things work for you please don’t be offended.
It can be really hard to be motivated to exercise. As much as I love to workout, sometimes I feel like I am just in a funk and don’t want to do it. So how do we fix this?
Noom. It seems like every time I’m on YouTube I see an ad for Noom. If you don’t know about Noom, it’s a nutrition-based weight loss program that’s pretty popular right now.
It’s a crazy time right now. With social distancing and more and more gyms closing, here are my favorite YouTube channels for home workouts (no equipment required!).
I have a love-hate relationship with planks. Mostly hate. My problem is I’m really bad at doing planks so I rarely do them. And because I rarely do them, I never improve. It’s a vicious plank cycle. But I wanted to change this and actually start incorporating planks into my routine.
