12 Days and Counting….

March 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

12 Days from now I will be competing in my first EVER Cross Fit Invitational as an intermediate female. Thankfully, with the help of my trainers, I am feeling strong in the areas of lifting- not all that confident in the Olympic lifts such as the Hang Clean or Snatch- but I at least have the strength to be competing as an intermediate female.

However, food is the problem. Yes, I am on the ZONE diet. But, coming off a huge weekend of “special events” has lead me to believe that my diet needs to be CLEANED up massively before I can feel strong, confident and prepared.

I have pink post – it notes all over my house with the words “50 Double Unders” {A jump rope skill that requires two turns of the rope for every one jump}. But, now I need to add one note to the other one…”Make every meal REAL”. Must come from real sources, have an ingredient of one- protein, veggies, fruits and or nuts. That’s it. 12 Days and Counting down to more REAL food in my diet- less chocolate, less dairy (can I give up dairy???), no alcohol and eat strictly real food…

Encouraging words are welcomed.

    If it’s what you want, then you can totally do it! Just takes some planning… I’ve been doing no dairy, no sugar on a day-to-day basis, but I do save that stuff for the special occasions (like my birthday, not everyone else’s birthday!). Eating clean and REAL foods has changed my life. Two years ago (before baby), I wasn’t eating clean and I lived on Tums. Now that I put good foods in my body I never have an upset tummy.

    Good luck at the competition!
