Hang in there! You can love yourself by giving yourself the gift of health day by day with Healthy Eating and Consistent Exercise. Don't lose sight of your goals. You can do it! :)
Maybe you should try the DailyBurn Fuel shake since it is not whey based it may not affect your IBS.
You could incorporate more plant based protein sources such as Split Peas, Spinach (16gm per serving), Broccoli, Kale, etc.
According to Men's Health, there is not much to be concerned about. More information: http://blogs.menshealth.com/m...
I usually stick with vegetables and protein sources for dinner.
If I do have a carb/grain, it is usually brown rice or Quinoa!
1-2 Handfuls Kale
~1 cup whole strawberries
~1 cup mixed berries
1 TBSP Chia
1 TBSP Ground Flax Seed
1 TBSP Maca Powder
1/2 TBSP Chlorella or Spirulina Powder (Alternate Days)
1/4 scoop Protein Powder
I mix all ingredients with a Nutribullet, but any good blender will probably work good. For sweeter, less Kale (or use spinach) and a little more fruit.
I really like the achievements for the nutrition challenges and the workouts. When I first joined up, it seemed like a central theme of the site. Kind of sad to see it go.
The Yoga routines should be very minimal impact and have you sweatin it out! :)
This is a great idea! Many people like to keep track of multiple measurements. Dailyburn promotes that Weight Isn't the best indicator of progress yet it is the only progress indicator we currently have to judge on the site.
I see that Stevia extract is used in DailyBurn Fuel as a sweetener.
Stevia is from a plant and can be used as a natural sweetener.
I know Sam's Club sells Stevia extract and I know there are now commercial varieties like Truvia and PureVia.
Is Stevia an acceptable sweetener on Ignite? I like my coffee with a little sweetener and this would definitely help! :)
I joined the Fill Up on Fiber challenge.
I joined the Cook Smart with Healthy Oils challenge.
I joined the Get a Full Night's Sleep challenge.
I successfully completed the Hydrate All Day challenge.
If you are sore, you might want to focus on a stretching or mobility type of video to increase your flexibility. There are different levels of sore, a little sore, I still workout. If there is major soreness in a muscle group I will usuarlly focus on a different muscle group for that day so that recovery can take place.
I ran across this article and it was really encouraging for me.
