    Definitely. In PT school we have actually talked a lot about treating patients post partum, for pelvic, abdominal, low back, and other musculoskeletal conditions which aren't resolving following their pregnancy (or sometimes even during pregnancy) Women feel like they just have to put up with pain or urinary leaking or so many other things, but it doesn't have to be that way.

    I hope you get into those classes too @Red Herring!

    If you are craving sugars, definitely whole fruit is better than processed foods, which I'm sure you know. Sugars and starches are the most easily-accessible types of calories. But I think balancing the carbs out with protein and good fats is important for your overall health. Unfortunately I'm not too qualified to give nutrition advice, but that is my most basic knowledge.

    Well, I have royally failed on the food front the last week. However, I regret nothing. I was traveling and celebrating things so it's all totally justified. As dedicated as I am to eating healthier, being healthy, etc., I refuse to be that person who orders a salad with dressing on the side at fancy restaurants. It's just not worth it.

    I've been doing well with exercise though! I walked a ton while traveling and I've been running and rock climbing since I got home. Slowly but surely I'm getting back on track with food. I made these Spinach and Artichoke Stuffed Chicken Breasts on Wednesday night and they were delicious! I have a few in the freezer that I'm planning to take home when I leave my parent's house on Monday. They'll still be a bit frosty when I get back to my apartment, that way I don't have to worry about dinner for a few nights this week.

    I need something to make for my family tomorrow night though... Suggestions? Have you made anything especially amazing/healthy lately @EJCC??

    I know right! Yeah, I'm having a hard time with the food as well, thanks to that double bacon onion ring burger! Although I workout for 45 minutes every day except for weekends, and I run three miles on Monday and Wednesday (I run an extra mile on Wednesday so that makes four I guess). I know this is for ESXJ but I honestly don't care. No one can stop me.

    @violett @Chickennugget

    Just a reminder that this is my and Showbread's blog. That being said, if you want to post in this blog to interact with me and Showbread and talk to us about healthy food and exercise, you are totally welcome to. Otherwise, I will direct you to these two threads:

    Healthy foods/snacks/meals!

    tasty, healthy foods... recipes please!

    Exercise news:

    I started on this thing today! My cousin's girlfriend recommended it to me a few days ago and said she was noticing a huge difference, 20 days into it.



    (Substituting real push-ups with modified push-ups)

    Had to take a couple breaks in order to do the 50 squats, but I think I should still be fine tomorrow.

    Way to go! Those people make me sad, so I would be sad if you became one of those people.

    Mine are in the oven as I type this! Turns out I accidentally bought chicken breast tenderloins instead of full chicken breasts, so I used eight tenderloins and stacked them instead of stuffing them. Whatever -- should still be good!

    I might put them in the freezer right away because I now have leftover artichokes that I need to use, and that's a higher priority. Might Google a pasta recipe that uses artichokes and feta, and make that tonight. Hmmmmmm.

    Damn I wish I could say I have! Discounting all the leftover St. Patrick's Day potluck food I've been eating, I've been trying to find creative ways to use up this can of refried beans that my roommate accidentally bought, without buying anything to supplement it. So for two nights in a row I did this:

    1) Put some refried beans in a bowl
    2) Sprinkle a good amount of frozen spinach on top
    3) Microwave until warm/thawed; meanwhile, start frying an egg
    4) Add medium sized handful of cheese to the bowl and let it melt on top
    5) Top with salsa, the fried egg, and loads of Tabasco

    It ended up fine? Nothing special and DEFINITELY nothing I'd recommend for your family. But a perfectly respectable zero-money-required breakfast-for-dinner thing.

    There's talking TO US about food and exercise, and then there's talking to the entire forum about it, as if this is your blog.

    Think of it like the difference between attending a party, and declaring yourself the co-host of a party after it's already started.

    The thing I don't like about those things (even though I'm a HUGE fan of 30 day challenges) is that it works the same muscles over and over again. While the abs can certainly handle that brutality, the repetitive motions of the same kinds of squats isn't really as fantastic as changing it up (lunges, curtsy squats, sumos, etc.. doing 10 of each vs 50 of one is a better work out for the legs and butt) and opens the muscles and joints for injury instead of giving them time to recover.

    The cool part about them is you can combine all of them. It might take 60 days, but having a squat/plank day alternated with a push up/crunch day would give your body something repetitive, but alternating as well. I definitely am a fan of the tv-show work out challenges, where stereotypes from different popular shows translate into 5-10 reps of some work out move, with stretching or walking in place in between.

    Right now I'm working my way back up to the intensity I used to have through P90X and P90X2 with a 15 minute 30 day work out challenge.. and I'm combining it with 30 days of yoga challenge (on youtube, free) because it has a long period of slow, methodical stretching before a short burst of energy. And each day is different on both of those things.

    @kyuuei Good points. I like the idea of having alternating days -- and of trading out exercises as they get easier. (e.g. moving up to regular push ups from modified, doing something more challenging instead of a million squats). The problem is that I don't know how I'd chart that out. The general idea of those challenges appeals to me because it's a highly specific and number-focused plan that someone already made for me -- and I'm new enough to the fitness game that I don't think I could make a similar plan for myself without help.

    p.s. The heck is a curtsy squat? Lol
