Welcome Wagon / Is thick consider fat?

No i wouldnt say so...a thick chick has weight but has more muscle than fat and is well proportioned. (Little to no belly fat with curvy hips thighs and legs) thickness is more solid...fat on the other hand would be when you carry it in the wrong places (especially the belly) and it looks lumpy, flabby, oe jiggly...you look pretty solid to me so I would say just love your curves ans remember that "thick" is in the eye of the beholder.  All that really matters is what YOU think. Take it from a lifelong thick chick! Lol ;-)

Health Conditions / Has anyone had shin splints?

Hi everyone! Thanks a bunch,all the advice combined has helped a TON. I had to lay off for a while but hopefully i will be getting back to it tomorrow...got new shoes, using ice, toned it down a bit to allow myself to heel, and now i will ease into intense workouts and be sure to stretch really good before after and even during if need be.  I think that I did too much at once...i went from 4 days @30-40min to 6 days high intensity @ 60 min...with the wrong shoes on!...AND i may not have stretched as long as I shouldve(ok i didnt). Lol Thanks you guys, when you know better you do better, right!:-)

Health Conditions / Has anyone had shin splints?

The footwear makes a lot of sense too, may i ask what type of trainers you use? I would normally go for whatever is cutest(lol) so ive never really paid much attention to the type of cushion etc. I need to now tho because ive been working out pretty hard lately and i plan on stepping it up. Thanks

Health Conditions / Has anyone had shin splints?

Inflamation huh? Never heard of that particular condition, but im gonna try the stretches too and see how that works...its hard to find ones that have good front calf stetches. Also i take it that if i do/eat/drink things that reduce inflammation that could maybe help also. Thanks

13 Feb
Yes i will recomend that. And for stretching your front side leg, i have this : Stand on your knees. Sit down on your heels. Make shure your toes point directly aback. Whdn you sit on your heels you can allready now feel a stretch. Then, and try now to be very precise, lift your knees of the floor,pressing whit your arms, and only your toes should be on the floor. Ask,please if you feel you have a question to this.

That IS a good one...and I may not have been stretching it enough beforehand because that did reduce the pain a bit and it seems like that's what I needed. Thanks a lot!

You welcome. And i have a excersise for the front leg as well. Stand whit your heels on a wood plank(two by four or simmilar) start make your toes pointing up to the roof. Repeat severel times (15-20) do 4 set. Or, for a more intense feeling, Take a small step front whit one foot, rest body weight on back foot. Pkace a broomstick on your toes. (Whit shoes on). Start tilt your foot up, wgit one hand resting on broomstick as only resistance. Do severale reps. And 4 set. :-) hope this help. Your great

Health Conditions / Im diabetic and have high blood pressure what us a good diet to go on???

I would try food lovers ive tried it and it works well for long term and short term.  Its great for diabetics because its well balanced and the whole point of the program is to eat low glycemic foods and keep blood sugar levels even at all times which they call "fat burning mode"...its also great for hbp because it has you lower your intake of sodium as well.  My mother is diabetic and i have hypoglycemia so i really helps and it teaches you how to find the substances hidden in foods that agravate health problems and cause weight gain. Its more like a lifestyle chamge than a diet tho...i still go by thoae rules to control my bs levels. Hope this helps,Good luck!

Health Conditions / Has anyone had shin splints?

I have these HORRIBLE pains in my shins every time I do a lot of running, jumping or anything involving my calves. It's been happening since I was young. I've been told that its just shin splints but all I really want to know it WTH do I do to relieve the pain?? Lol Seriously, it feels like ive been hit across my shins with a baseball bat! Does anyone else suffer from this? Any advice would be MUCH appreciated :-)...thanks on advance!

14 Feb
Ice, stretching, and rest. This is an injury you don't push through, you should do something that doesn't make it hurt for a while, then slowly add back in those running and jumping exercises. The right footwear is key.

Weight Loss / Working out twice a day?

I have been doing that. Actually i workout a few minutes upon waking, then my cardio midmorning and strength training in the evening with the hubby, i feel that i stay energized ALL day and sleep better at night. I think its fine just as long as you are not doing two long tough workouts a day.  And as long as its not everyday, you want to give your body time to recover so the next day should either be rest, stretching, or just some light cardio(walking, jogging, whatever you like to do).  Hope this helps :-)

Health Conditions / Anyone have Hypothyroidism?

HIi, I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and was on synthroid for about 6 months.  Went to get my levels checked the doctor told me my levels were fine and that it may have been temporary after having my baby...i have had symptoms since the, but when i eat right, keep stress down, and work out i seem to feel much better.  It is much harder to get the weight off tho.  I find that I just have to work twice as hard.  I will say to be very careful to not eat goitrogenic foods because they can make your condition much worse...and also make sure you eat small frequent meals and dont let your blood sugar get too low(or high of course :-)) as hypothyroidism is linked to hypoglycemia. (caused it for me) Sometimes its really easy to let it get too low when ur cutting carbs and calories so be careful. Be sure to take a good multi that has iodine and selenium as well, this can help boost thyroid function. Hope this helps :-)
