Hey Check it out

DSC_0544

 

January 5th we will kick off the 30 days of clean eating at CFW.  Scott from Custom Fit Meals will conduct a kick-off seminar on clean eating, portions, shopping, work and home life, preparation and answer everyone’s questions.

After that we will conduct the baseline workouts (to be announced at seminar) on January 6th.  This will be all day and able to be done when you can on the 6th.

For the next 30 days we will challenge ourselves and our partners to keep it as clean as we can.  You don’t have to be 100%, you don’t have to order custom fit meals, that’s not what it’s about.  Just be as clean as you can and make some changes you can carry on through your life.

We are going to operate on a point system.  For example: You will get a point for coming to the seminar, taking a before picture, getting a body composition that day and each week, a daily point for mobility, a daily point for doing a WOD, a weekly point for staying 100% clean.   There are more points to gain those are just some.

So, get you and your partner registered for this nutrition challenge.  You have nothing to lose but everything to gain!!

Partner Nutrition challenge Q’s

DSC_0285

The nutrition teaser has been posted and I’ve gotten some great interest and intent to commit.  Let me answer a few more questions.   Number one, it is NOT a zone challenge, it is NOT a paleo challenge.  This is a challenge to eat clean food.  Whole clean food.  You do not need to order custom fit meals for every meal.  You don’t have to order them at all if you don’t want to.  Scott, my little brother from CFM is conducting the nutrition talk on the first day and will give you options for use via custom fit meals.  Do I think CFM will help you in this challenge?  Absolutely.  How do I win?  Points.  The more points you gather the better.

 

Today:

10Am:

Cleans

11Am:

4 Rounds, rest 1 minute between rounds

3 Minutes AMRAP

10 cleans (135, 95) *Yes, “squat cleans”
