I talk periods, energy and relaxing me time
This week I’ve done 12 massages
We decided to convert one of the offices at the gym
Into a sport massage studio and to get the ball rolling
I did a groupon promotion
And they flooded in
Fully booked my time up
And I’ve had a blast
I get a real kick out of massage and helping people to feel better
But now my arms and upper back are aching
And I’m tired [I need a massage wheyyy]
I’m really looking forwards to my weekend
Saturday morning lie in
[I scheduled this email for today … obviously 6am is not a lie in]
A delicious breakfast cooked by the other half
And no plans all day, other than to relax
Take a long walk around the woods
And probably watch a Harry Potter movie
This week my training has taken a serious hit
Massage is exhausting
And my body needs a rest now
My body doesn’t need to be beaten up with sprints or HIIT training – no matter what my programme says!
My body needs refuelling and nourishing
And especially as that TOTM is hitting tomorrow
Sorry for any chaps reading ;-) TMI right!
Did you know that your body burns about 20% more energy during your period?
This can often be why we get those crazy cravings for chocolate
Were not just being greedy
Our body needs more food and energy during this time
A handy trick is to make sure you get a little more at each meal
Try not to gorge and binge
There is no reason to do that
Try adding about half a palm size portion of carbs to whatever your normal portion is
And see if that puts your cravings at bay
Take care of your body and it will take care of you!
I’d love to hear from you about your plans for the weekend!
Are you relaxing and taking care of your body?
Have you got some quality YOU time factored in?
Family time is always a great bonus too!
Being healthy is not just about getting the right amounts of proteins fats carbs and fibre
It’s about your whole lifestyle
As soon as I started to listen to what my body was telling me
My whole life turned around
And I feel great now
When I was fighting my body it was a downwards spiral to disaster-ville
Happy weekend-ing ladies!
