As the Food and Fitness Challenge draws to a close next Saturday, what do you plan to do? It’s understandable and natural to want to indulge on the “foods” you gave up for the last month. But hopefully you have realized that you can survive without sugar in your coffee or that morning bagel. My hope is that this food challenge was step in the right direction of eating real, whole food rather than just a 30 day test of willpower. In the grand scheme of things, these last 30 days were just the beginning of your body making positive changes and adaptations. If you didn’t see the results you were hoping for (and you followed the rules) give yourself another 30, 60 or even 90 days. Yes, I know it seems like an eternity, but consider how long you have been bombarding your body with sugar and altered food. The longer you have practiced poor eating habits, and the more extreme those habits were, the longer your body will need to make changes.
Also consider the changes in your performance at the gym. I have heard from several of you that you feel like you have more energy during the WODs and that you feel like you are recovering more quickly. Weird? Let that be a motivation to keep up these positive eating habits as well, especially since the Open Sectionals start March 6th and I’m guessing you will want to be able to perform (and feel) your best.
