  1. I just wanted to say you seem to be very self aware which is great. Just remember to learn your triggers and manage them. Also doing too much self-care can be just as bad, but with your self awareness you should be able know where your limits are. As for the therapist it can be hard to find a good one. I'm studying to be a therapist and all of us in the program are so different. From our personality to our theoretical approach to our experiences. It's like dating. You have to see which one fits you the best. See also if they have special training for your type of depression. Just don't write us all off Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  2. I normally run 12-13 minute miles so not that fast. I try to do the breathing where you exhale when the opposite foot hits the ground which helps a little. And I usually try to do a four count breaths but when I'm not thinking about it, it does get shorter. p.s. not sure about pilates but it sounds like corpse pose in yoga
  3. I live in Canyon Lake, TX (NE side of the lake), work in San Marcos and go to school in San Antonio. I'm looking for someone to help me stay on track/start back up with running. I usually take my two dogs with me. I do trail and street running. I'm also doing some bodyweight exercises and other things I can do at home to get back in shape for when my husband gets back from his deployment. Sent from my LG-H830 using Tapatalk
  4. I'm sure this has been asked before, but I've always had an issue with side cramps while running. The last three times I went running I was fine (after a while of not running seriously), but today when I went to start running, immediate pain in my right side. I walked a half mile warm up like usual, but the first step running started the pain. I got .35 miles before I just had to stop. I've been drinking more tea this week and was drinking water this morning (I'm bad about drinking water). If I eat bananas often I get charlie horses at night when I'm sleeping (only time I get them). I'm willing to try anything at this point.
  5. I found an app called shopwell. it lets you scan barcode and tell you if there's anything in them that you're avoiding. You can also put in preferences (Iron for me) and things you want to limit and what you want to avoid. Hopefully this will help me since I'm probably going to try to completely gluten free immediately at least for two weeks and then possibly wean some things back in.
  6. So I have a rash from Eczema and I've been told to try cutting out gluten from my diet. I'm moving to Texas in a week and I plan to try to cut out gluten from my diet then since I'll be in a new environment. The main issue is that I love carbs and breads and pasta (I will find a gluten-free mac and cheese otherwise this is doomed to fail lol). I'm trying to stay away from packaged food which seems to be people's main suggestions. What were some things you did to cut out gluten/bread/ grains etc? What were some surprising things you found that had gluten in them? (I know beer has gluten)
  7. I'm in the bloomington area, but I'm from South Bend.

    So on the iifym calculator I should be eating 114 protein, 280 carbs and 36 fat for maintaining, but I'm always going over my fat and coming short on my carbs and protein. Do these numbers seem reasonable or a little off? I'm 5'2", 120 and am active almost everyday between lifting, running and doing martial arts.
  9. I mostly want to make sure I'm eating enough, but I also want to slightly lower my body fat percentage and gain more muscles. So I don't know if I should be bulking or aiming for fat loss.
  10. So I've never been one to count calories, but I started reading about macronutrients and I thought it sounded like a good idea. So, I downloaded the fitocracy macros app. I have multiple issues with it, but my biggest issue is that you have to choose either a training day or a rest day. I'm active everyday, but some days I'm a lot more active than others. My week looks like this, Mondays and Wednesday I have one hour Judo class that's fairly low key and two hours of Hapkido club. Tuesday and Thursdays I run 2 miles, have Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Jeet Kune Do classes, 2 hours of Hapkido club and 2 hours of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu club. Saturday I do 2 hours of Hapkido training and 2 hours of Jiu-Jitsu. Friday, Saturday and Sunday I lift for about an hour and Sunday I run 2 miles. So I feel that my macros would change depending on how much I'm doing that day. So would I count Monday, Tuesday and Friday as my rest days, since I'm doing less? Or is there a better way to calculate or even a better app?
