Exercise Changed my Menstrual Cycle and Much More too.

Exercise changed my menstrual cycle, and it took me by surprise. That’s not the only thing that changed since I started exercising regularly.  Whether you know it or not, exercise has the power to impact us in many important ways.  I think it has been very underrated for the other benefits that perhaps are as, or more important than just weight loss.

As we look in the mirror and have concerns about how we look on the outside, we may not give much consideration to what is ‘going on under the hood’, so to speak.

Exercise may seem like an external application to the body but there is so much more going on than the eye can see.

Many people who look in the mirror and are happy with their size, may have the false idea that they do not need exercise.   Exercise has been so emphasised by the weight loss industry that it’s valued as an important component in the health management equation has been lost.

Exercise has value

1 Timothy 4:8  Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”

Here at In His Image Fitness, we focus on training for godliness from the angle of stewardship of the body, beyond just fitness.  In our body is the fullness of both the spirit of God and the Temple of God.  However, the Bible does point out the value of physical training, so do not ignore that fact.

Ever since humanity created farming, air conditioning and computers, for example, our need to move for existence has been significantly reduced. However, existence and a quality of life experience are not the same.

Exercise triggers the body to warm up.  In a simple explanation of a complex experience; heat energy helps fire up the metabolic engines.  Exercise also triggers a biochemical experience.  Mood altering chemistry that can cause stress reduction and joy are also by-products of exercise.  This biochemical and metabolic change can also alter the menstrual cycle.  Exercise also impacts the chassis in that; it strengthens bones and the connection between connective tissue.  There is so much more, but this should establish the point for now.

Athletic females experience this particular phenomenon the most, especially if they are not on top of their nutrition.   The athletic demand that exercises puts on the body can have a negative impact on the menstrual cycle.  This cycle is not just a fertility matter but has a role in overall feminine health.

The point I want you to walk away with here is this:

Exercise is for everyone, especially those who desire to lose weight.  Exercise is a powerful component in the health management equation.
