Should You Still Exercise If Your Body Is Sore From The Last Time??

Filed under: Q&AFitnessJennifer Cohen

Jenn Cohen Fatigue

Here's our latest Q&A with Jen Cohen… and it's something we've always wondered about too, but just kept forgetting to ask someone who'd know!!

A reader asks:

Some days after I have done a hard work out my body is really sore.

Should I still exercise even if my body is sore?

According to Jen:

Depends on what type of sore. It's normal to feel sore or stiff after a hard workout, especially when you're starting something new - if you're having physical pains, then it's time to see a doctor. For regular soreness, here are 4 things you can do to prevent soreness and help work through the discomfort you have now:
1. Dynamic stretching at the beginning and end of your workouts; dynamic stretching is controlled stretching while moving. A good move is high-stepping, bringing your legs up high as you go.
2. Change the muscle groups you work from day to day. If your legs and abs are sore from yesterday's work-out, focus on arms, chest and back today.
3. Stay hydrated - your body won't function efficiently if you don't water it!
4. Work away soreness with low intensity exercise, like walking or like cycling. These activities get the blood flowing and reduce the build-up of lactic acid built up from working out, which will help soreness.

We figured this was the case, but it's definitely good to know!

Keep up the good work, Perezcious Reader! We're glad to hear you're keeping in shape! And thanks, Jen!

Jerry Lewis Cancels Charity Gigs Due To Illness

Filed under: HealthCharity

Jerry Lewis

Fortunately, it's nothing too serious.

After pulling out of a charity show last Friday due to hospitalization for fatigue, comedian Jerry Lewis has been forced to cancel a few more gigs this week.

Docters have ordered the overworked and exhausted star to rest in hopes of recuperating for a show on Thursday in front of 1,300 fans in Melbourne, Australia that will raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation.

David Jack, CEO of the foundation, commented on Jerry's health, saying:

"When Jerry lands he goes at it 110 per cent… Understandably, Jerry's health is our primary concern throughout this period and we want to ensure he's able to travel home healthy… That's very sad for Jerry because he's so passionate and committed to Muscular Dystrophy."

Jerry may be tired, but he hasn't completely exhausted his funny bones, as Jack added:

"He wanted me to give a very important message just to quash any rumours: 'I'm not pregnant'."

LOLz!

Feel better, Jerry! We hope you're able to perform Thursday to raise money for such a good cause.

Nutrition Tips for Daylight Savings Time

Filed under: FoodQuickFit Tip of the Day

Nutrition Tips for Daylight Savings Time

When it comes to the daylight savings time change, the saying goes, “spring forward, fall back.” Unfortunately, this time changes leaves many of us fatigued, making us want to do anything but spring forward! Here are some of my nutrition tips to help you transition with the time change:

Breakfast Time: Too tired to eat breakfast? Skipping it will make you feel even more fatigued, potentially causing you to overdo it on caffeine and sugary foods. This can set you up for a major energy-crash later in the day. Oatmeal, plain yogurt, and apples are great energy-boosting foods to eat for breakfast. Fruit and veggie smoothies are another easy option for an energizing breakfast! I love to make this Avocado Whip Smoothie first thing in the morning. Avocados are another great source of energy and contain potassium, a nutrient that has been shown to help regulate blood pressure.

Snack Time: Need an energy-boosting snack? Ditch the donuts and munch on some almonds. They are perfect to help us stay energized due to the fact that they are loaded with potassium and iron. To obtain all their health benefits, be sure to snack on raw almonds rather than the candy-coated or salted kind! Don’t like nuts? Other great energy-boosting snacks include grapes, peaches and sunflower seeds.

Hydration Time: Bust-out that cute water bottle and stay hydrated during the day! One of the early signs of dehydration is fatigue, so sipping water is a good way to stay energized. Squirt some lemon in your tea or water for a boost of vitamin C, a vitamin that is needed to give us energy during our day. In addition to tasting great, lemons are great for aiding in digestion and can help with nausea, heartburn, and parasites.

Sleepy Time: Having trouble falling asleep with the new time change? Chew on some cherries! They are a natural source of melatonin and can help you get your beauty sleep. Lettuce, scallops, basil and nutmeg have also been known to promote relaxation and sleep. If you are a tea drinker, try a cup of calming chamomile tea.

Thanks to Margaux J. Rathbun for this tip! Look for more weekly updates!

WTF?

Wyclef Jean's rep revealed that he's been hospitalized due to "stress and fatigue based on the grueling eight weeks he's had."

Uh. Okay…

Thank goodness he got out of the race when he did! He clearly cannot handle politics!

Rest up, bb! And focus on what you're good at!
