Great advice to keep your wrist and elbow joints pain free (and help relieve pain from damage already done.)
I have attached 2 files for you that address "tennis elbow" and "golfer's elbow". You don't have to play either of these sports to experience tendonitis in the elbow. Repetitive stress on the wrist and elbow joint can lead to inflammation of the tendons - we need to ensure the strengthening of the surrounding muscles to protect the joint and connective tissue.
I hope you have some time to read and then implement the exercises/stretches found in the 2 articles provided. They are sourced from: drbenkim.com (I subscribe to his newsletter and get quite a lot out of it).
So this is a photo of some pineapple chunks and some raw nuts. In my car. On the passenger seat. (I know.)
I always say that being organized is key to eating well. Some days......not so organized!
However, a grab and go meal like this one will ALWAYS beat the drive thru options. Agreed? Of course :)
Continue to look at your food beyond the "fill me up" factor. Look at it for what it gives your body. How it nourishes you. This little grouping in my car gave me: calcium, B vitamins, fibre, healthy fats, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Bromelain (an excellent anti-inflammatory - thank you pineapple), a host of nutrients and great flavour! AND.....PEACE OF MIND. I felt proud of what I was eating. I felt happy and good about myself for nourishing ME. Not scarfing down a burger and fries or a gigantic muffin! That shit makes you feel like shit - physically and mentally. Like you let yourself down. Why would you want to feel that way?
Next time you are heading out the door in a rush - have a quick look in the fridge and grab some fruit and nuts (keep your nuts and seeds in the fridge, they have oils that go rancid) before you go! That's kind of being organized, right?!!
