We have been playing extra hard 🙂
Hard time walking, hard time sitting, hard time reaching for the cereal.
It’s so inspiring to see all ages enjoy our gatherings. Generational fitness at its best!
This week, we have class on our usual days and time (M & TH, 6:30-7:30 pm).
Keep bringing your hand weights.
Concept2 Rower Raffle Tickets
Yes, we still have some left. I’ll bring the tickets to class this week to see who would like to sell them. We’ll sell them up until the end of December. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
Nothing that is worth it is ever easy! There are no quick fixes!
There’s thousands, even millions who are looking for that quick fix. For those of you who have been coming to class for a while, knows that NOTHING THAT IS WORTH IT IS EVER EASY!
I love what a Crossfit Trainer said in her blog, “Tell your friends to stop wasting their time and money with crappy quick-fix DVD’s and FAD fitness programs and start doing something REAL. Yes, I know, a lot of us don’t have time… we have families, jobs, responsibilities… but we also have to take care of ourselves. All of these things that take up so much of our time can also cause stress, lack of sleep, bad habits, etc.”
Time to Train Your Nutrition
(excerpts from Modern Paleo)
If you wish to lose (fat) weight, lower your carbohydrate intake to about 50 grams per day or less. Limit tubers (potatoes, sweet potatoes), fruit (except berries), dairy, and nuts (good) macadamias; (okay) cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, and pistachios; (worse) pecans, brazil nuts, and pinenuts; and (terrible) walnuts.
Be sure to lose that weight gently: eat only when you’re hungry, but don’t deprive yourself. If you’re looking to gain mass, try eating more high-fat dairy and tubers like sweet potatoes.
Fermented and cultured foods — like yogurt, kefir, and homemade sauerkraut — are beneficial for your gut bacteria. Enjoy them!
Supplement with vitamin D, based on your blood levels. Consider the following supplements as well: cod liver oil and butter oil; iodine and selenium; magnesium and potassium; vitamin K2; fish oil. Try to get as much good nutrition from real foods as you can, but recognize that depleted soils impact the nutritional values of the foods available to us.
For workouts, ditch the standard “cardio” sessions. Try short, high-intensity workouts instead: you should be able to kick your own ass in ten minutes or less. Try weight training, sprinting, and barefoot running. For more structured programs, try CrossFit or Body by Science. Also, move around a lot. Ladies, don’t be afraid to weightlift: you will not turn into Ahnold overnight.
Remember, you are 100% responsible for your own life, health, and happiness 🙂
