You are having many falls, you are losing the fight. Your fame is all noise and commotion. My friend, you are saying you will uplift the world, But what about yourself?-
The Nutrition Equation…
Ever feel overwhelmed by the equation of nutrition (% of fat vs % protein vs % carbs etc)? Calculating what’s right for you does not mean you have to break out the calculator. Of course some of you ( accountant types) might enjoy that but for the rest of us that is just adding more painful work into our busy lives.
Here are some ways you can add both fun and more healthy food into your daily routine!
Get out of your comfort zone one baby step at a time. While you are getting ready in the morning (washing your hair, getting dressed) set a goal for yourself to try something new today. Don’t change your whole meal…Just add one new ingredient! Let yourself get excited about it and be proud when you accomplish your goal!
Find out what is seasonal and available right now in your area. It will be lower cost, very fresh and will support your local farmers. There are lots of websites out there that can give you this info and a list of farmers markets you can find them at.
Get creative! Whatever local food you chose, take a sec to find a recipe that is going to get your taste buds excited and will be fun to make. For those of you experiencing spring it can be as simple as trying a new kind of lettuce or leafy green (kale, Swiss chard, arugala). You do not have to be a master chef to make tasty meals just willing to try. Leafy greens like kale are packed full of vitamins and minerals and only take a few minutes to cook!
Healthy needs to be more fun!
Listen up, yeah you!!! Pulled from our “Focus on something” series here at the CultFit archives…
Warm Up thoroughly doing the following:

50 Goblet Squats

Who would have thought that Calisthenics were invented yesterday? Now take a moment to put your honest face on peeps…If we told you the above was a new P90x extreme workout or some ELITE WOD would you be interested? Oh look Booby is now the mayor of Whole Foods on Four Square…
Four, Five, Six or Seven times through would be pretty nice followed by an activity you thoroughly enjoy (we went for a nice swim)!!!
If you could put down your iThingy in the seat next to you on your morning commute this morning? We have favor to ask of you…Look in your rear view mirror for a second. Do you see that? Say hello to your own worst enemy…Take a long hard look at this picture this morning peeps:
