Week 10 of the Nutrition & Wellness Program is as follows:
Maintain the alterations you made during week 9 with your macro numbers. Continue to weigh yourself and pay attention to how you feel day to day, at work, at home and during activity. Please let your small group coach know if your weight moves more than 6-8lbs in the wrong direction (if you are trying to gain and start losing weight for instance).
Recovery is a very important aspect to exercise and to using your body. If you have gone to the gym 6 days in a row, it’s time for a rest day. You can still get out and be active, we like to call this active recovery, you don’t need to lie on the couch all day and we don’t suggest that you do that. Go for a walk with a friend or significant other, go for a bike ride, have a day at the pool or go do some yoga. If you are not sure how to schedule rest days, a good place to start is by doing 3 days in a row of exercise and then one day of rest. Rest is crucial for proper repair and recovery. Going through this program you are becoming more and more body aware. Listen to your body. If you are feeling sluggish and having a hard time with exercise, it’s probably time for some rest and recovery.
