I already shared this video in a previous post, but I thought I’d throw it on this post as well.
What’s more important?
NUTRITION or FITNESS
Jeff and I have based our healthy living off of the Crossfit manual and have read it many times.
With that being said…we’ve learned and can testify from experience that the FOUNDATION for a fit lifestyle is NUTRITION!!
NUTRITION IS FUEL and if you’re not fueling your body with the proper nutrition, you will not be able to get the most out of your workouts!
WHAT DOES NUTRITION EVEN MEAN???
Does it mean changing your ENTIRE LIFESTYLE?
*No eating out
OR…ending life as you know it with some DIET!?!
*Paleo (caveman diet)
*Gluten free, vegetarian
IF you answered YES to any of those questions you have failed the rhetorical questions test!
*It’s ALL about BALANCE AND MODERATION!
*Lifestyle CHANGE?…more like a lifestyle ADJUSTMENT
*Think with the pyramid in mind
*Keep it clean and simple
*Take all that PROCESSED FOOD out of it!!!
*Eat small meals throughout the day…keep your metabolism up!
This is HUGE for me!
I LOVE me some sugar and it doesn’t work for me to cut it out completely for a week and then splurge for a full 12 hours!!
I stay on track with little rewards throughout the week!
I will give myself a little treat usually every day.
HOW TO STAY ON TRACK ON THE GO!!
*Small meals: if you eat small meals throughout the day your less likely to crash while your running errands!
Have your purse packed and your water bottle ready: fill your water bottle and your kids sippy cups up at night and place it in the fridge for the next day!
It literally takes me 2 SECONDS to grab a couple sandwich bags and throw in some…
