Too Much Exercise is Happening in Glen Ellyn

How to tell when you are exercising too much

Ask yourself these questions. As you can see by my picture above (not), I've had to ask these to myself many times, seeing as I compulsively exercise when I'm not careful. If you find yourself answering yes to the following questions, it might time to re-evaluate your exercise regimen.

1. Am I consistently in pain the next day after I exercise?

2. Am I always more tired than I was a few weeks ago?

3. Do I fall ill more often than I used too?

4. Have painkillers become part of my budget?

5. Has my performance declined the past few weeks?

6. Do I exercise even when I know I shouldn't?

Following a food pyramid can help you eat the right amount, not too much, not too little. Even Vegetarians have a food pyramid!

When it comes to healthy eating, try a vegetarian diet. A healthy diet takes planning, and a food pyramid can be a helpful tool. The vegetarian pyramid outlines food groups and food choices that, if eaten in the right quantities, form the foundation of a healthy vegetarian diet.
