Stress,Pain, and Nutrition


Yesterday was a stressful day as the evening wore on.Unexpected occurrences happen and caused alot of stress on the family as a whole.So as a stress reliever we walked our 4 miles.This time I made a 4 minute gain! 1:07:14. And I did not spill my water this time!!!

Then I wake up this morning with pain.Tendinitis.Reoccurring,inflamed tendin.Painful.So I have it iced down, not at work today{caused by other stressful reasons}.Today is an off day,no exercising today.

Thank you again Jonathan,for your support.And you gave me a thought for a post today.


Fueling the body for such exercise and training becomes a huge demand.You are asking the body to use fuel that it is not use to using.So the body rebels and the cravings get worse.The metabolism is now working faster,burning more energy,using the stored up fats.A higher protein diet will help.Protein will fuel the muscles keep them from breaking down, and help recovery time from training.Also when we feel hungry the body is also telling you that you maybe a bit dehydrated.If you drink alot of soda,which is full of refined sugar,will also add to the cause and effect.This also causes the body to retain water. Don't fear the cravings do slowly go away.

Read the labels on what you eat, if you do not know the word,look it up,you will be surprised what it is and you are eating it.Really.

I agree with Kate{HI}about the Glaceau Vitamin Water.I like the power c too,Eric likes the XXX,the essential orange - orange also has potassium which is essential for the muscles like the heart for replenishing the electrolytes in the body.


Tonight we go to the local car show and take the hot wheels track and race die cast cars.Its fun for all the kids and we have a king of the track every week and post the picture on hot wheels collectors site.{not up yet}Its fun.If my left foot doesn't calm down from the pain I won't go.

So train hard, have fun!!!!

C-ya at the start line in 08-09!!!!!

Loved the nutrition info. Thanks. I'm guessing you are a doctor or nurse.
