Getting your Whole Life On!

So we are a few weeks in to the Whole Life Challenge and I know a lot of you guys are crushing it, and some of you guys not so much.  Who is in their first challenge of this sort and loving it?  Who has had some serious progress?  Who is struggling with 1 part of the challenge and what is it?  What advice is out there that can help us all?  Lastly, I am not a coffee drinker but I hear this “bullet proof coffee” is the drink of the Gods and Rich Froning….

TODAY:

3 Rounds for Time

100 m Walking Lunge

5 x Wall Walks

50 x KB Swings (53/35)

    OK, so I for one, am loving the Challenge. I’ve got boatloads more energy. I’m paying lots of attention every day to my foods, exercise, mobility, water intake, etc. I’m cooking new things in the kitchen and enjoying pushing those boundaries further. I’ve lost a few points here and there, but each time was a conscious decision and not a huge deal (i.e. eating bacon that was cured with sugar). Overall, I’m shocked at the amount of sugar we all consume in everyday foods – even in all of the healthier foods out there. That’s been a real eye opener for me. I’m becoming much more careful about making that “special exception” to get myself a treat, now that I know there’s already so much sugar intake in regular foods. I will say the one thing I’m pretty bummed about is that there are no restaurants out there where we can eat during this challenge, because none of them comply. Oh wait! Almost forgot – there is one place I should promote: CFW’s very own Arthur & Maria Lampros have a totally AWESOME restaurant Giorgios in Montclair. http://giorgiosfamilyrestaurant.com/ They can make your food WLC compliant, and yes, it will still taste fabulous.

      Rae,
      Thanks for the promo on Giorgios in Montclair…I live in Montclair and use to eat there regularly until I started CFW and Paleo…FYI, as for the WLC, I went over board with the diet and ended up feeling weak and lethargic for about a week or so. I took the advice of the coaches and some of the CFW athletes to increase my food intake and I have felt so much better these last few days. Obviously there’s a balance so I don’t end up gaining weight—It’s been a good learning experience for me as well.

        Awesome, Manny! Make sure you get LOTS of fats. The first week I felt pretty hungry, but it was always taken care of easily with increasing fats – coconut milk, coconut butter, coconut oil, pecans, almonds, sunbutter, avocados, ghee and butter, etc – anytime I feel hungry, I down some of these things and it totally resolves my hunger and gives me tons of energy.

    Personally, I’m loving this challenge. This is just what I needed. I do better when I’m held accountable for my actions.
    I’ve found eating ever few hours and having a go to food works for me. My go to food is mixed nuts. Its high in protein, satisfies my craving, and sticks with me.
    My advice to those struggling is to stick in there and don’t give up. You can do this!
