Tips for Healthy Eating and Exercising When Working Shifts When you’re working a shift schedule, your eating and exercise habits can suffer. People who work shifts sometimes skip meals, eat irregularly, eat unhealthy food, and may find it hard to keep up...
an interesting documentary, whilst I may sometimes put the world to rights or solve / sort my own thoughts / challenges/ problems out, that is normally internal to me and my mind. i guess you dont know how you would react unless you are actually in that po...

Obviously we have a lot of runners with different attributes whether it be speed, distance, road or trail.....I just wondered what foot health is like in general. I have found that since I took up running 3 years ago I seem to have one toe with a constant...
One black toenail which has become a typical runners badge of honour, otherwise no more than an occasional blister. I always have fitted insoles into any new trainers and use Hilly mono socks for HM distances which does the job for me

I am a Soldier, and we do Physical Readiness Training five days a week. If the boss cancels PT, what should I do? Do I go ahead and get a few extra ZZZ's? Do I get up and work out on my own? I think it would be best if I worked out on my own, but I want to...
Listen to your body, the answer could be either depending on how it feels on any given day. i assume you don't get many days off either

Hi Everyone ~ I am new to this but am looking to get fit and change some bad habits. My biggest opstacle is I am hypoglygemic and have acid reflux. So getting through a work out can be challenging.

I have took 2 early morning challenges, one is this the other is early morning gym session. If I run to the gym early in the morning do a work out will it count as me doing both challenges or not?

I'm thinking I will eat a light breakfast about 1.5-2 hours before the race. It will include a banana, toast with peanut butter and maybe an energy bar. Washed down with some gatorade. Looking for any and all suggestions on what has worked for you going in...
Herbalife Prepare! Always a great choice, and a safe pre-workout that can be used before a cardio session.

Having watched this clip, I immediately put Michael Pollan's book on my wish list. The title could also have been "what happens when you let corporations cook for us". Other memorable quotes are: "Cooking will become as quaint as quilt making" "Eat...
I liked it, especially his point about eating whatever you want as long as you cook it yourself/ I think that argument has merit for a few different reaasons. It's true thought, isn't it. Not only do you know exaclty what's in it, I am sure that it...

So when I run (onger than for 30 minutes) my legs have a tendency to fall asleep while I run. I do stretch before and after and I always warm up.
I have known this to happen in feet when laces are too tight. But there may a nerve issue here. I would consult a dr.

Hi everyone :) my name is Ashleigh and, while I don't compete in athletics anymore, I still enjoy watching the sport. My mum and I coach 4x100m relays for my old primary school and I absolutely love doing that!

It is something I have noticed among my rowing crew and climbing budies. So many people seem to be proud that they never stretch - as if it is a macho symbol of strength! Since I have persuaded my crew to stretch before and after outings and gym sessions th...
I love to stretch, but when I'm short on time I avoid it to jump right into a workout. I can feel the difference, but for some reason I tell myself it is ok. This is something I need to work on as I get back into a strong routine.

Hi all, I've not been hugely active on TS for a while due to sickness in the family and a back problem, so I've not been checking in anywhere that intently. Has anyone got any updates surrounding their own inch loss goals?
Hi there Inch Loss Tribees @mamatthejjb@vanessaandphil@sempera@babygirl93086@sarajan Oops! My measurements have gone the wrong way. This is what holidays and all you can eat breakfast buffets do for you :(

I can only do Modified push-ups at the moment are those allowed for this challenge?
I think so, I'm gonna try to jump in again, I need to get my body back & it's been 6 months since I worked out daily. I think my body will not be too happy with me, but I'm not too happy with it right now either lol

I am in the last week of this challenge, and I have seen great results! I wanted to do it to become stronger when running up hills since I live in an area where you cannot run a mile without one, and it has worked. I want to be able to keep that up. I was...
I plan on following my 30 day challenges with another 30 day challenge or two. It's always worth it to continue to spread your wings once you've learned to fly. Don't give up on squats just because you completed the challenge. Incorporate them into your nex...

They also provide your body with natural sugars, which is preferred to additive processed sugars in large amounts that you would get from most snack foods.
