A Clinician’s Thoughts about Self Care and
Physical Activity during COVID
Physical activity is of paramount importance for maintaining our health, and this period of forced creativity may help spark the change we need to be more active. The current demands placed upon many of us are unprecedented. We are being asked to stretch ourselves thin – combining our many roles into one time and even place. Some of us work from home, alongside our partners and roommates doing the same, while simultaneously entertaining, caring for and teaching our children and ensuring our high-risk family, neighbors and friends are doing ok! When we are placed under such demands, physical activity is often one of the first self-care modalities to take a backseat so as not to add another item to the already lengthy to-do list. As we are instructed as passengers on a flight, we must first put on our own oxygen masks before assisting others.

Did you know you can order HMR shakes at LIFT Cafe! Stop by and grab one today! There are lots of options to choose from!
HMR programs help individuals achieve fast weight loss in a livable way by encouraging people to eat more and stay satisfied, which makes it easier to stick to the program in the short-term, and over the long haul.
According to LIFT Weight Managment and LIFT Wellness Center Director, Miki Martin, "Losing weight quickly is incredibly motivating. It can help people stick with their diet longer, which is especially important if you have a lot of weight to lose. Many of our clients have 30, 40, even 100 or more pounds to lose, so fast weight loss is important to keep up momentum." Miki also adds, " It's a common misconception that fast weight loss isn't healthy or sustainable, and that it will lead to weight regain. That is simply not true. Studies have shown that following a lifestyle- change program that promotes fast initial weight loss is associated with better long-term success.

HMR focuses on three skill areas critical for weight-loss and weight maintenance:
  1. How to make healthier food choices
  2. How to eat more fruits and vegetables
  3. How to increase physical activity

Research has shown that practicing these skills may also help reduce the risk factors for the development of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer, and other chronic diseases.

Proper nutrition is necessary for a healthy life, but it also greatly impacts the quality of your training or workouts. If you are struggling to perform during your intense workout or you feel sluggish or spent throughout your day after your morning lift or run, you may not be properly fueling your body. Just like a vehicle, your body can perform better if it is properly fueled, so that means good nutrition!

By fueling before the workout you ensure that you have the energy needed to train harder and burn more calories. If you are exercising for up to 60 minutes, a light pre-exercise snack of about 120-300 calories should be enough to benefit you. If you are training longer than 60 minutes though, you may need a meal 2-4 hours before the workout to properly fuel you.

After your workout your body needs the proper nutrition to repair itself. This means eating a snack or meal that contains carbohydrate, protein, and fluid. The carbohydrate replenishes the energy stores in your muscles which can reduce that sluggish feeling. Eating protein after a workout helps to repair and rebuild the muscles used during the exercise. This balance is important because if no carbohydrate is consumed the body may use the protein as energy instead of using it to repair the muscles. Last but not least, proper hydration is key. A general recommendation is to drink at least 16 ounces of water after the workout, though this may not be the case for everyone. Overall, your urine should be a clear, very pale yellow.
