Day 8 – Tuesday
After the very exhausting holiday weekend and making it through ‘The Day After’… meaning: the grueling first day back to work after a long weekend, I had to find the energy to make it to the gym today. I dragged myself into that gym and it was my lucky day! No, the doors weren’t locked… the WOD was only 7 minutes long. Granted it was a very intense 7 minutes,
but I was thankful there were no perimeter runs involved.
Running is NOT my thing!
Needless to say, I left the gym with more energy than when I walked through the door. I am noticing a difference in the way my clothes fit and the toning of my body, particularly one area that I wanted to work on. It’s what I call the ‘wave flab.’ It’s that area under your arms that keeps flapping long after you have stopped waving goodbye.
If you begin your healthy living transformation with Crossfit alone, and are not ready to begin a Paleo challenge, here are a few healthy food options:
Eat: garden vegetables, greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds, little starch and NO sugar. They say that if you keep your grocery cart to the perimeter of the grocery store and avoid the aisles, you should be all set. Buy the food that is perishable. Items that are processed or packaged with a long shelf life are probably not the best choice. If you have a local market, I would suggest making that a weekly stop.
