Great work by everyone that came through the doors yesterday. The conditions were challenging with the humidity but we all picked up the slack and pushed through a short HARD workout!
Making “Challenges” work – From CrossFit Verve
We are currently in the middle of a nutrition challenge. Yes it’s a challenge that we’d like to win because that’s the mentality we have, but even if we don’t win, we still do win, because we make ourselves healthier. Not a bad alternative really. In these nutrition challenges and in everyday life really we set goals for ourselves, but how do we stay on track with our goals and make sure we see them through to the end? From the Poliquin Group, here are a few tips to help you with planning ahead and and overcoming obstacles. Research suggests that we don’t reach our goals, not because we aren’t motivated, but because we don’t know the correct steps that are required.
Tip #1 Use a roadmap. If you are looking to go from the beginning to the end without really knowing the steps in between, chances are you’re not going to make it. Have a roadmap that has steps in between to help you along the way.
Tip#2 Be realistic in your goals. When making goals, be realistic. Most people create goals without thinking about potential obstacles and roadblocks they may face along the way. Of course you can’t predict the future, but when setting out for a goal, make sure you know that some thing that are less than ideal may occur.
Tip#3 Prepare in advance. You are doing a nutrition challenge, right? That takes some planning and preparation. Make sure that you set aside some time to plan what you’re going to do for meals for the week. If you forget to plan something and have to go out and grab something to eat, you may be less likely to remain strict with your nutrition.
