Jo Larsen knows that women are so busy these days. We work, take care of kids, take care of the home life....it’s all about everything going on around us and often we ignore our own needs. As women age, we begin to see symptoms of self neglect. Weight gain, poor digestion, stiff achy body, insomnia, high blood pressure, anxiety and a weak immune system - am I right? Jo started her blog to help women over 40 or any age to stay Fit, Fun and Fabulous!
Prenatal exercise is very important for the mother to get into good shape right before she goes into labor and that will effectively prime her to face any complications that might occur during childbirth or pregnancy. Prenatal exercise also has tonnes of benefits such as reducing pregnancy complications, boosting your energy, improving sleep, reduce stress, reduce constipation, and reduce any sort of risk after childbirth. You should also be careful and not overdo it as this could cause other complications if you have not exercised before and start now when pregnant.
Protein is the key to building a healthy body, it can be either for muscle gains or for general health. We tend to stay away from the natural protein and instead use the great macro nutrient and make it into curries and fry it with oil. This means the protein intake is very marginal. There is a problem with the lack of protein intake even on this level. Thus there are some signs that you could be missing as to the lack of protein in your diet. These can be wastage and shrinking of muscles, weakness and tiredness in the muscles, high cholesterol levels in the body, hair loss, edema, poor sleep, craving for protein, craving for sweets, organ failure, irregular menstrual cycles, anxiety and moodiness, experiencing brain fog, weak nails and skin, mental health problems and getting sick often. Try to notice these symptoms in your body and add the required amount of protein into your body, which is 1 gram of protein for 1 kilogram of body weight.
