19 weeks in. And I'm still exhausted. I have a hard time making it through the weekends without needing a nap. My doctor increased my thyroid medication dosage almost 3 weeks ago so I'm hoping it helps. My energy levels are all over the place. I am still teaching 2 circuit training classes a week and working full time. My workouts are now only happening the 2 days I teach since I'm already at a gym. I have been wanting to incorporate more yoga into my workouts - at least 2x a week.
Rhabdomyolysis is a serious condition resulting from the breakdown of skeletal muscle fibers with leakage of muscle contents (myoglobin) into circulation. If not treated expeditiously, it may lead to kidney failure. While there are many causes of rhabdomyolysis, the one the fitness industry evaluates is overexertion due to exercise.
Juggling a busy schedule that consists of 40-60 hours in the office, home, life, kid, and animal responsibilities (if you have them) is enough to deter anybody from squeezing in gym time/workout time. However, that does not mean that you are doomed from being healthy.

Exercise is crucial for building strong bones. Weight-bearing activity determines bone strength, shape and mass. For children and teenagers, some of the best weight-bearing activities include team sports (e.g., basketball, volleyball, soccer and softball). Studies show the absence of physical activity, especially for long periods, results in a loss of bone mass. Making sure children and teenagers get enough calcium (1300 mg per day for ages 9 to 18), preferably through calcium-rich foods, is also essential to bone development and overall health.
It's almost 9:00 here in Illinois and I realized that I had almost forgotten to do my weekly healthy meal! Luckily we had plenty of leftovers and I am able to show you this fast and simple side dish I made. Every now and then I roast a whole chicken. It's a long process but a simple one and I love that I can get about 4-6 meals for the rest of the week from the leftovers. I make chicken wraps, chicken potpie, chicken soup- you name it. There are so many recipes you can make and it can save you tons of money.
There are 336 30-minute blocks of time in one week. The American Heart Association recommends that you commit five or more "blocks" to exercise. Don't have a full 30 minutes?
