Trying To Tone And Get In Better Shape
0

8 posts in this topic

I need help! I have been gluten free for about 5 months now and I have lost about 60 lbs so far and I really need to start toning my body. I know that you are supposed to do sit ups and stuff to tone, but everything raises my heartrate really bad. My resting pulse is between 130 and 160 and then when I try to do simple exercises like walking around the block my pulse is already up to over 200, even housework will make my pulse go up. I used to dance and did a little bit of boxing for fun, but now I'm not even sure about trying those again. Does anyone have any ideas of what I could try or is it safe to try and go about dancing again? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Alex - are you seeing a DR for your high heart rate? You should probably seek medical advice from a professional before starting a work out program since your heart rate gets so high. It might be normal for you, but I don't know because I'm not a doctor.

You could try something like pilates or yoga - they are about strengthening and toning, doing stretches and holding poses, rather than a cardio work out. Stop if you feel your heart racing or feel unwell. Once you have appropriate medical advice, I'm sure the forum could be of great help to you :) Good luck!

I went to the doctor about it a few times and they did an EKG 3 times when I was pregnant with my youngest, but then said that since it was always that high it was normal for me and just something I have to get used to. That was at a clinic type place and now I have no insurance there is no way I will be able to get another doc to see me so I am kind of lost.

My little piece of advice is to start with walking. I understand you've tried it and it raised your heart rate but consider this: you can walk at whatever pace works for you and you can "pull over" and take a rest whenever - as many times as you want. It requires no equipment, no training and you don't have to spend any money joining a gym or a club or buy instructions or anything. I started really out of shape a few years ago - couldn't go more than 30 seconds without having to stop, gasping for air. Took a while but slowly I was able to do more, faster, and my heart rate slowed and breathing eased, and it got kind of addicting.

Take your favorite music and take your time - with you by you and for you.

Very true. Thank you. I am going to try walking, I will probably wait and have my husband walk with me since he is really patient about everything and maybe it would be better to not go by myself at first. Thank you again.

You would be surprised how many calories you can burn on a treadmill at a slow/moderate pace. And, it gives you an opportunity to check your heart rate continuously. If it's too high, take the rate down. Or, you can take the incline down.

With an elevated heart rate like you, can I suggest that IF you watch TV while on the treadmill.... keep it off of a channel that has any politicians on it. That will make your heart rate shoot sky high for sure!!! And, your blood pressure too!

Go to a travel channel or something calming.

I really liked Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds series. You can get them on DVD and do it at home at your own pace. I had to stop because the repetitiveness of it irritated the nerves in my legs. BUT I have peripheral neuropathy, so it shouldn't bother most people.

Another thing you can try is bellydancing for fitness (or fun!). There are DVD's you can use and videos online if you don't want to take a class.

    • Contaminated mushrooms.....they often grow them from rye or barley seeds that they put the spores on or grow in a compost that con contain wheat...in my case the company says they used rye seeds for the starter. (called after the fact)   I assumed the sliced prewashed ones would be safe and they were on sale....go figure. Anyway Might try my tips for using microwave prep ware for awhile things are cheap. Clean out the microwave put paper towels down inside and cover your food if you need to. Jen gave some decent tips also. I might say if you do dry beans watch out for them also, I am on a keto/paleo diet myself pretty much a very low carb diet consisting of mostly nuts, seeds, egg whites, low carb veggies ...... https://www.nordicware.com/microwave ^Steamers, egg cookers, splatter guards. egg poachers, bacon racks, etc...everything you need to fix your meal in a microwave without pots or pans and cheap... you find alot of them in the microwave section of walmart. I even make make shift tortilla bu using the plates with a lip or the omelette maker and mixing up egg whites, with a tbsp or two of coconut flour and sometimes another nut meal pouring it in and cooking for 1-2 mins making a thin sheet I can use to roll stuff up in.  
    • I live in a house where some people eat bread.  I do not use the toaster that toasts regular bread. All sandwiches are made in a special area of the kitchen and I do not prepare any of our other food there. If you have touched bread, you have to wash your hands before you touch anything else in the kitchen.  After you eat bread, the dishes go directly (and only) into the sink.  I rinse any plates and forks extremely well that have had bread on them and then I put them in the dishwasher (they essentially get washed twice). Then I rinse out the sink.  I have a separate dish scrubber that I use when the plates have had anything with gluten on them.  We don't cook with flour or bake with real flour(except once a year when I let my kids make their birthday cakes). The flour goes everywhere and coats the surface of countertops.  Do you make all your soups from scratch? A lot of soups have flour as a thickener. Also Nuts are often times made in facilities that process wheat. Planters nuts seem to be pretty safe or shop at Nuts.com - they have quite a few options. Hope you feel better soon!
    • If you're like me, you've already tried all multiple options without very good answers, thus the reason you are on the boards...
    • Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls  ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened? 
    • thleensd, If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium. Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits. Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's. http://afibbers.org/resources/taurine.pdf I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.  B vitamins help us manage our stress. If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50  causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra. Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often. Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me. I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me. Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps. Frequency is more important than the amount. 2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day.  Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate  (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly. I hope this is helpful. ****this is not  medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself. I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . . 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
