Workout wall

Workout wall

Have you hit the workout wall?  Does it feel like you are exercising and doing all the right things but not seeing any results?  It is not uncommon for our bodies to adapt to doing the same type of workout routine.  When your workout becomes easy and sometimes even boring, it’s time for a change.  Do you hit the treadmill every time you go to the gym?  Try changing it up.  Challenge yourself to a new exercise and see if you feel the burn.  Don’t let the workout wall stop you.  Climb over that wall and see what kind of challenge is on the other side.  @fitwatchr we want you to make progress.  We are here to help!

 

 

Pain

Pain

Remember that old saying “no pain, no gain” ?  It is good to challenge ourselves and work harder to get stronger.  However, exercise should not become a medieval time for torture.  When your body is in severe pain, it is signaling you to take a day off.   I am not talking about just some sore muscles.  When you are limping and you have visible swelling it’s time for a break.  Allow your body to repair itself with some rest.  Your fitness progress will go forward rather than backwards from an injury.  Listen to what your body is telling you.  A day or two of rest is healthier than weeks of recovery from an injury.  @fitwatchr we want you healthy.

Spring is in the air

It’s that time of year.  The doldrums of winter are parting ways.  That means the layers of clothing we wear will be parting too.  Are you ready to expose the winter wonder of weight to the world?  If you are not ready, do not feel alone.  Winter is a cozy place to hide our bodies and it is not uncommon to gain during this season.  If you want some help, we @fitwatchr would like to support you.  Utilize one of our apps to help track your activity and weight loss goals.   We offer the Witfitwatchr app, Upwatchr app, Misfitwatchr app or the Fitwatchr app to sync up with one of your devices.  Go ahead, download today and peel the winter weight away!

 

Stress

Stress

Stress tends to make us want to grab for those sugary snacks.  The food we eat has a big impact on our mood.  Try eating some protein and vegetables and see what happens.  You will feel better by fueling your brain with the proper sources of good food.  Stay away from the processed foods and try to cook more meals at home.  Take care of yourself and it will help control your stress.
