There is one topic that is either hit or miss with you… Exercise.
You either love it or you tolerate it because you know that exercise is one tiny piece to the puzzle titled, “Your Success.”
Learning to like exercise takes a lot of time, just ask bariatric patient Maria Besenski who said, “I was finishing an hour of cardio workout with my trainer last week and she said I had done enough and didn’t have to complete the last three minutes of running. I did it anyway, as that was my favorite part of the workout. ME, the woman who hated running chose to do it.”
“I would never have thought I would have felt that way.”
Many patients before surgery find it very difficult and sometimes painful to exercise due to health conditions such as difficulty breathing/shortness of breath, knee or back pain, aching joints, and heart conditions.
And then after surgery, many patients don’t even know where to begin their exercise routine. We’ve created this blog to help you incorporate exercise into your daily routine if you don’t have time to go to the gym or if you need a little help starting a routine and learning to like exercise.
Now that we know the benefits of exercise, how can you incorporate exercise into your daily life?
It’s easy! We have some tips for you to try that won’t even FEEL like exercise.
Start any activity with a warm-up. Stretch right when you get out of bed. Do some jumping jacks while watching the morning news!
Use stairs!So your office is on the fifth floor? Take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalators. If the only stairs you encounter during the day are in your home, place dumb bells at the bottom of your stairs. When you’re walking up your stairs pick them up and do a few reps, but leave them at the top of the stairs. Pick them back up when you’re walking downstairs and leave them at the bottom of the stairs. Do this every time you walk up and down the stairs.
Park your car further away from your destination. Are you going to the grocery store? Park at the back of the lot and take the extra time to get your steps in. Have a front row parking spot at work? Skip it. Park in the back! You’ll get added exercise to your daily routine in no time by making this one change.
Practice good posture. Make sure your back is straight to strengthen your core.
Walk while you talk! Say you’re on the phone with someone for 30 minutes? That’s 30 minutes of walking you’re fitting into your day!
This is a fun one! Do 15-20 squats every time you go to the bathroom. It’s a quick and sporadic way to sneak fitness into your schedule.
Do calve raises when you’re in line, anywhere. In line for lunch? Calve raises. In line for the bathroom? Calve raises. In line at the store? Calve raises! You’ll have tighter, toner calves in no time.
Do you carry a lot of bags inside after you go shopping? Do bicep curls with your bags as you walk inside. Think of it like a challenge to your arms. How many reps can you squeeze in before you make it inside?!
Some more fun ways to sneak in exercise is during regular household activities. Calve raises while doing dishes, lunges while vacuuming, squats while folding your clothes or making your bed.
In order to stay healthy, we encourage you to try these nine little ways to sneak exercise into your schedule.
Try these tips for a week and see how much better you feel knowing you’re making tiny little differences that will amount to extremely big differences in your health!
After searching for a long time for a the right protein shake, I found Nutracelle. It's the only one that not exacerbate my chronic migraines (because there's no chemical additives) and help me stay healthy and help me manage the sides effects of my medication.
The flavors are yummy (my favorite one is Salted caramel but all the flavors are amazing), the price is affordable and the quality is amazing. Plus, it's proudly Canadian 😀
I love the vitamins, they are so tasty. I am going to start making the protein snacks tomorrow
I honestly cant live without my nutralean! I am grateful that this product has helped me lose weight and maintain it for years! Thank you! ❤
with socail distancin, no school, "comfort food" at your reach it's hard to keep a strickt routine. YOu know you are domg something right when your 2 teenage kids are asking you for a Strawberry Nutralean protein "icecream". THANK YOU, NUTRACELLE
I’ve been a fan of the Nutralean protein powder for a long time and thought I’d try out the vitamin gummies and they are equally as great! I highly recommend both products!
A nice "clean" protein powder carefully made in Canada. The ingredient list is short ...... the taste is great. Helps me keep to my low Potassium diet. Nut free allowed me to share it with my 30 something son. You won't go wrong!
I ordered both nutravegan chocolate and vanilla, both so good. I'm definitely going to try nutralean line next!
Great product. Delicious, thank you
I ordered the vanilla, chocolate dream & strawberry. They are so good mixed with frozen avocado or berries, I find it masks the stevia aftertaste. I tried vanilla first with just unsweetened coconut milk and noticed the stevia instantly, I can't taste it when I blend with berries. I feel satisfied and don't feel like I am starving which has happened with other protein powders. It also helps satisfy the sweet tooth.
Very smooth and creamy shake. I use frozen berries and unsweetened almond milk. No clumps delish.
I find all is good except the Salted Carmel , I love the nutra bites
I'm loving my first purchases so far. I got the strawberry and the salted caramel. They blend so well with my almond or coconut milk. I am very pleased. Would highly recommend!
Best vegan protein powder I've tried. Smooth and creamy. Great addition to my cupboard. Lo e it with frozen fruit.
I've tried a lot of protein powders, but this is awesome. I have food allergies and lots of protein powders are not safe for me. This is the yummiest.
I absolutely love the product! Not too sweet and so smooth !
I have been searching for a long time for a dairy free protein powder that tastes good. I had not found anything I loved until now! The Nutravegan products are delicious, have a great consistency, are filling and best of all don’t hurt my belly at all! I will continue to be a customer for a long time coming.
Nutracelle tastes amazing! It’s not chalky and doesn’t have a bad aftertaste like a lot of other protein products. I make the best chocolate banana smoothie for breakfast every morning and put two scoops of my protein powder in it!
I love these powders. The flavours are exceptional and the probiotic fibre really makes a difference in satiety. I highly recommend this brand.
I love how smooth the shake is in just the shaker! I crave them and can’t wait to drink it!!!
My husband and I have been following a lowcarb/keto lifestyle for the past 5 months. We were so excited to finally find a sugar free vitamin gummies! Not only do they taste great, they are keto friendly 😊 highly recommend!
I absolutely love, love, love this product. They taste great, are good for you, and are an easy part of my daily routine. My only criticism is that I wish they were a candy that I could eat by the handful instead of only 2 per day!!
This Nutracelle protein powder is our favourite! We love adding it to our smoothies! Highly recommend this protein powder!!
It’s a must have for me! Salted caramel and strawberry are my faves
I was introduced to this by a friend...i truly love the flavors of the protein powder and the endless ways ro use it. I know have started a friend on it and sbsolutely loves it
Nutracelle's protein powder is by far the best purchase I have ever made! I have tried several protein powders in the past, and they never worked for me. Nutracelle's powder tastes great, is great for cooking/baking, and is so easy on my stomach! I will never use anything else.
I couldn't get these on Amazon last month and it said it didn't know when or if they would get them again. Whew, I see they're back. These are the best, however they taste like candy...a really good candy and so you need to make a sugar free candy version we can just eat, lol.
I love the shaker! It’s convenient, really helps mix the powder with my favorite milk, and is so durable. Highly recommend!
Tastes great and keeps me feeling full for hours.
I have just tried the Nutravegan and fell in love with it! Added some ice, water and shook. It feels so smooth and not gritty/chalky!! Thank you Nutracelle!!!
I bought the family pack including 3 flavours Nutracelle, 2 tubs of Gummies and 4 packs of Protein Bites. Very pleased with everything. Lost 8 lbs in 2 weeks making shakes 2 times a day. Very tasty and we do not miss the sweets.😊
We like that they hold a good amount, we can make our breakfast shake and go about our business on the Resort, taking a sip now and then. Nice design and easy to clean.
I workout everyday and I found it hard to get all the proteins that I need. For the last 5 years, I've been searching for a protein shake that suits me well. Sadly, all the proteins shake I tried got "additives" in it that exacerbate my migraines. Then I found Nutracelle. Natural ingredients and nothing "not needed" in it. Plus, it's yummy and affordable. Never got a migraine because I drink it. Thank you Nutracelle, I love it so much!
New! Vitamin Gummies - Sugar Free
