Nibble while you work!
If you’ve read my story you will know that I suffer from some debilitating illnesses. I have good days and bad days. On those bad days I can hardly get out of bed. It sucks! The worst part of it is you just don’t know when you’re going to feel semi normal or horrendous.
I’ve educated myself on the importance of nutrition and living an active lifestyle. Now that’s pretty difficult being active when all you want to do is sleep the pain away, right? I’d say to my doctor “I can’t even consider moving, I’m in agony!” Sometimes you just have to try push yourself that tiny bit more. It’s oh so hard I know but honestly it does help.
First things first, if any of you can relate to this post and you suffer from similar health issues, I hope my journey can help you. Try changing your diet. Eliminate certain foods that can aggravate inflammation, cause stomach upsets etc. Foods containing gluten perhaps or even dairy? Limit your sugar intake. Start eating foods that give you energy boosts. Then hopefully through time you can take baby steps into exercising. I’m not suggesting to go for a jog or do an HIT class, hell I could never do that!! Just gentle exercise. It’ll raise your mood and benefit those stiff joints.
Summertime is the best! It’s warmer, the days are longer, you generally feel happier. And its strawberry picking season so that’s my exercise for the day. Pick some fresh berries, go home make some delicious desserts or pots of jam/ jelly!
Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
Thanks for reading guys.
Grab nature by the heals and have an amazing day!!
