Listen to your Body
Do you ever feel like something is wrong physically and you need to listen to your body?Something wasn’t right and I knew it. It was time for me to rest, listen to my body and figure out what it needed. After completing week 2 of a new fitness program and following the nutrition plan I was feeling good. I did my first 45 minute cardio workout and I did not feel right. What were these feelings?
Take a listen to my video to hear more about my symptoms and solutions to feel better:
After starting a new fitness program and adjusting to the workouts going from 25 minutes to 35 minutes and then to 45 minutes it was all going well until I hit the 45 minute cardio workout. Was it my body trying to adjust to a higher, intense, cardio workout or was there something wrong? I was scared. Have you ever felt this way? I had to stop and take some time to listen to my body and see what it needed. I felt dizzy, uncomfortable, tired and a feeling that something internally was off. I was questioning if it was my blood sugar, was I anemic, did I have enough sodium, were my levels or electrolytes off. After using my support system, I did some problem solving.

I also know I was under some additional stress that could have caused some of these symptoms. Stress can be a huge contributing factor in altering systems in our body. When this happens, it is time to take a step back and evaluate what is going on in our lives and what needs to change.
