What better way to kick 2013 off than by an 8 week Nutritional Challenge???!!! I couldn’t agree more, so with that we are hosting a nutritional challenge for all Kirkland CrossFit members. Many of us (over) enjoyed the holiday season and are looking for any excuse to help us jump start a cleaner way to eat. Why 8 weeks? depending on what study you read, it takes about 4 weeks to break a habit and then another 4 weeks to establish a new habit. In this Nutritional Challenge there aren’t any “cheat” days therefore, you can’t fail by having a bad meal or week of meals. Here are the rules; we want you to revisit your healthy habits, reestablish nutritional discipline, enjoy life around you. You can read Dan’s Octsober 2012 write up (may contain adult language), https://www.facebook.com/events/446379012069799/?ref=14, for a basic understanding of the Paleo Diet. For this Nutritional Challenge you are not restricted to Paleo, you can try other forms of nutrition; Paleo/Zone, or Zone/Paleo. Essentially there are no rules, we want you to make healthier nutritional decisions and here’s how we can measure your success. On January 7th, 2013 we will have a hydrostatic body composition truck on site to do body fat measurements then again on March 4th, 2013 to remeasure.
Kirkland CrossFit North on Monday, January 7th from 6am-11am and Kirkland CrossFit 11:40am-7pm
