Here’s a quick RUNNING Q&A for ya!!
Hello lovely humans 👋🏽 Happy Friday 🌞
❔What do I do when I have a side stitch?
> Breathe deeply and don’t be afraid to walk it out if you need to 👍🏽 Try putting your hands above your head while you walk if it’s not going away.
❔What should I wear?
> Whatever feels comfortable for you and makes you feel good! 💕 I like my sports bras a little looser because I hate feel claustrophobic. If my running clothes are too tight or uncomfortable I just won’t wear them, no matter how cute they are.
❔What’s the easiest fastest way to get better at running?
> Besides the obvious of… just keep logging more miles… I’d say the best thing you can do is make sure you’re getting enough sleep and fueling properly. Those things are easy to control and will make such a big difference in your runs! 🙌🏽
🍑 I’m wearing @kiavaclothing ’s Battle Rope Bra. This peach color just launched and I’m obsessed 🤩 It’s absolutely dreamy and the bra is so comfy! I’m wearing a size M.
❔Have any running questions? Drop ‘em in the comments or DM me 🤗 Have a great weekend!
How I stay full & beat craving with pcos
Pcos and craving seem to go hand in hand! Not to mention the huger, I can eat a big meal and be starving an hour later but over the years I’ve slowly worked out how I can make little changes to make it more manageable:
✨80% Complex carbs - personally I’ve found not only do things like white bread make me feel sluggish they also give me a drop in energy not long after eating. 70% of women with pcos struggle with insulin resistance so eating a diet high in simple carbs can leave you feeling hungry with low energy.
✨Limit extra sugar- i used to have a major sweet tooth but noticed in general when I eat extra sugar my skin suffers, I get more frequent cramps and have a low mood. That’s why now I tend to stick to eating a bit of dark chocolate a few times a week. I don’t crave sweet things as much now but when I do feel like having something sweet I know it won’t affect me badly.
✨Magnesium glycinate- this has helped me massively with my chocolate cravings. I take it daily & it’s the supplement I noticed the most difference with. I used to literally need big bars of dairy milk to get me through pms but now I actually have control over my chocolate cravings
✨Fill up on fibre- my favourite! I try and get at least 25g a day which I’ve built up over time
Sleep schedule- sleep is so tricky with pcos, you can feel so tired in the day but then go to bed and literally can’t sleep. I try to get up at the same time every morning and listen to a sleep meditation or sleep story to get my to sleep. If you struggle with sleep I couldn’t recommend the calm app enough!
✨Stick to full fat options- Healthy fats keep me full, they’ve got such a bad rep because of the higher calories but for me adding lots of healthy fats to my diet have kept me feeling full and satiated. Add fats to carbs also lowers their glycemic index helping you stay fuller for longer.
Pcos is so complex and everyone is different so the best advice I could give is work out what works for you by giving one thing a go at a time and seeing how you feel. I’m definitely always still learning and trying things out
20 Aug 2020 ... I have gotten stronger and fitter since then (well not rn since I pulled my hamstring and can't deadlift/squat anything at all 😄 ... I will be back in a few days 🙏🏾).
I love and value GROWTH a LOT.
Fitness allows me to be on a growth journey 24/7.
I love FITNESS.
