Oh my this is so a problem. I love vegetables. I can eat them cooked any way including raw for most of them. So what is the BUT, well I have IBS and some of them just don’t agree with me. They want to make be bloated and all gassy. Do you know that discomfort well it’s there and it’s a good thing I work out at home because the release during the workouts haha just glad I’m at home.
Now the biggest help in this is my superfood drink. It is not by anyways a cure for IBS or a prescription for IBS. JUST know for ME, my superfood is load with so many vegetables, vitamins, fiber, digestive enzymes, pre and post biotic, adaptogen herbs and botanicals, shucks the list goes on and on. Most of all it decreases my IBS discomfort and my nutrition isn’t compromised with the smaller amounts of veggie consumption.
Why yes it it. I know when my workouts are super successful when I am all sweaty, muscles fatigued and I have to sit for a few minutes before contemplating my movements. This is awesome, BUT there is a BUT with an intense workout it is necessary to do several things.
1. HYDRATE –hydration is good for the body and muscles and should be done during and post workout. The choices are enormous and the choice is yours. For me it “Hydrate” that’s the name a supplement that supplies my body the essentials naturally and without added sugars. Water just water is good it is also good to add Himalayan salt to the water. These are my three choices but there are other products I just don’t use them.
2. REPLENISH – replenish the muscles with proteins post workout, again there are many what I love most is “Shakeology” , whey or vegan. My choice is vegan . If the muscles are worked hard, they need to be refueled. Can’t operate on empty or low fuel to an outstanding level. You do know you are outstanding, if not well you’ve been informed so refuel post workouts. Refueling doesn’t necessary have to be a protein shake any protein is good. A shake is my choice.
3. STRETCHING- It’s just easy to complete a workout and move one but stretching post any workout is so important especially with weight lifting. You lengthen the muscles out and get to enjoy the stretch, decrease the chances of increased muscle spasms, you are also cooling both the muscles and the body down as well as your breathing slowly returns to normal.
Overworking the muscles just doesn’t mean giving 100 % but you are giving 150 and more but it is necessary to reward the body as I’ve learned, so it will be prepared for tomorrow’s workout.
To all the over achievers on their workout journey, keep doing you- you are so amazing.
