Flirting with Sound Nutrition

3 Rounds for time of:
135 pound Clean and jerk, 10 reps
30 Abmat situps

Do you have sound nutrition or do you simply think you do?

Ever had one of those days when you finish a workout and think to yourself, “I’m doing everything right, why isn’t this coming together?”  We have!  An quick assessment will show you what’s really going on.  Start with food. Sure, you eat well, but how well and what does it look like on paper?  Oftentimes we lose ourselves in a busy week and remember only the good days for our mental nutritional score card.  We intend to eat Paleo and in concept would classify ourselves as a Paleo King or Queen; however, a simple evaluation shows differently.  Sunday you geared up for a strong Paleo week.  Monday was great, but a forgotten lunch on Tuesday turned into a burrito.  No big deal.  Onward to Wednesday which began with a killer workout and then, oops, a scone over at the coffee shop immediately after the workout.  No gains from that workout.  Thursday was awesome, except for the 20 or so chips w/ salsa from the lunch room, and then Friday, well, the weather was nice so it just seemed like a few beers and happy hour food on the roofdeck was in order.  Yes, against the backdrop of the average American diet, you take the prize, but in achieving an optimum standard of health and fitness, you well, have failed. You have stunted your progress, both physically and mentally.

So what did you eat for breakfast this morning and what do you plan to eat for lunch?

    Hey CF Roots gang! I just saw on the Crossfit Verve website that spectator tickets for the Sectionals in March are now buy one, get one free!! So that means they are $25 each for the weekend. Those of us competing would love to have some peeps there cheering us on! Think about it….

    Olivia, yeah we get one free spectactor ticket by signing up. I was going to see if June wanted mine, because she expressed interest in going. But looks like she doesn’t need it now. Is anybody else interested in taking mine?

    Ah, that’s very nice Molly! I figured I better make myself useful so you ladies wouldn’t harrass me so much for not competing 🙂 I know everyone is going to do awesome!

    Also on the Verve website it posted that our Sectional WODs have been approved by the National CF. Of course they did not mention exactly what they are yet, but said in general that they are balanced between strength and speed/endurance. Thus, a good test for all-around fitness rather than someone with a specialty in a certain area getting an advantage.

  5. Great to see some sectional chatter from my dear friends at Roots! Stay tuned for a pre-sectional event on March 6th. It’ll give you a little taste of what the competition will be like.

    Best part is: you don’t have to be registered for the sectional to compete! Full details will be disclosed on Monday (hopefully).

  6. Man, I’m really sucking at this Paleo diet right now. I need to get my act together. I had a latte today 🙁

    Also, CFR people. You should go to http://www.gravatar.com and sign up quick so you can upload a picture that will appear next to your posts. I think it would help with getting to know your fellow crosfitters. I suck at remembering names.

    Hi all–Leslie (from CF verve) and I are planning on going. We’d be happy to take free tickets, but were just planning to do the buy one/get one if yours are already spoken for!

    Hey Nisha,

    You can have my ticket!! On the condition that you yell really really loud and maybe even make a sign or two!

    Charging for spectators is lame. The CF community is just that a community, you should be able to show up learn something and see what it takes to be the best in this region. No charges last year if I recall correctly.
