Another comp in Fresno and beware packaging…


Another comp in Fresno and beware packaging…

I get contacted with CrossFit competitions all the time, purchase and this one is short notice but sounds cool. CrossFit Combat Fitness in Fresno is holding a couple’s competition on February 11. This is a different twist on the competition, page and what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than smoking your better half in a WOD!
We’re 10 days into the Paleo Challenge. This is my first time doing this, and it’s been an eye opener. I still get major cravings, but for the first week, I experienced major cravings for sweets, and even had headaches at times when my body “expected” an insulin response. I’ve been a little surprised at how restrictive Paleo can be, but for good reason: so many calories, usually in the form of sugar are hidden in our foods. Take this sugary tale from CrossFit Invictus for example.  The fact that becomes more true, in my opinion, is you have to avoid anything that is packaged.  Companies can find so many ways to sneak extra junk in your food, the only way to control it is to control it yourself.  Good luck!
I changed around the strength training this week, as Thursday’s have been super busy. It’s been tough to get in both the strength portion and the met con, so we’ll try the strength work on Friday.

It’s pretty sweet when the best athlete you know is your Mom.
