Sticking with it!

Posted by Shirley Brown : Monday, Mar 26, 2012

This challenge is hard! I mean it's hard until everything becomes a habit. According to Marc Sisson, who came and spoke last week, he said it takes 21 days to form a habit. We are well over 21 day mark and it looks like just a couple of you have formed a habit of logging your scores and living a new lifestyle. It's true, I do think some of you have changed habits, actually I know for sure some of you have changed habits, but the point logging might not be one of them. I'm so very proud of all of you that have made changes in your life. Keep up the good work!

Bring a Friend Day-March 19th and 20th

Posted by Shirley Brown : Monday, Mar 05, 2012

Whenever I find something that I really like in life, I usually like to share it. This is true with activities, food and information. I love CrossFit as do many of the kids out there, and in a couple of weeks you will have the opportunity to SHARE it with a friend. It's our official Bring A Friend day. It's the perfect day to bring a friend or two. You can show off what you know and share a part of your life that is pretty cool. Mark your calendar and make sure to bring a friend!

Weekly Challenge #4: RUNNING. This weeks Whole Life Challenge is to run for 10 minutes every day STARTING Today! This CAN be part of your 30 minutes of exercise. Get outside, get moving and get running. I'll even let you take the dog with you!

Does this look like sharing to you?

Do you like Running?

The Whole Life Challenge is still moving along. How about you? Have you found it easier to stay on track with food? Do you go to bed on time every night? I know for me these things are getting easier, more routine you could say. I know some people have been feeling better too! So, keep up the good work and don't forget to log your points.

Next week's challenge: Run for 10min everyday! I'm not telling you to go out and sprint, but challenge you to jog or run for 10 minutes. You an use this as part of your exercise points, so don't feel you have to exercise for 40min. If you include running into your scoring you may use this. At the end of the week you will have the opportunity to log an extra 2 points for running every day next week! Good Luck!

In Their Own Words...
Our kids, eight and ten, have been going for six months now and they LOVE it. This is a real workout/conditioning class and they are super proud of their accomplishments. This is a great addition to any sport that your kids may already be doing. They are the strongest they have ever been and they look forward to going....In addition they learn about healthy eating. - Jackie T.
