A Note and Challenge From Mary

When it comes to health and fitness my dear friend Torey A. has been my inspiration and guru (she's actually the person who told me about CrossFit and inspired me to join a box). 

Recently I asked Torey what her thoughts were on juicing as a mechanism for resetting poor eating habits. I've had a long struggle controlling my sugar demons and was looking for a solution. She responded by asking if I'd heard of Whole30. I hadn't. After a quick scroll through their website it became abundantly clear that this was Paleo on crack:

- no dairy
- no legumes
- no grains
- no added sugar (not even agave or honey)
- no alcohol

On a brighter note there is a huge focus on:

- whole foods
- cooking
- reevaluation of my relationship with food

Challenge accepted.

Given summer travel schedules, Torey and I decided it would be best to wait until July before we jump down the Whole30 rabbit hole. 

So in the meantime, I'm mentally preparing. I've read It Starts with Food and have been experimenting with various recipes from the Whole30 cookbook.

The other important aspect of doing something like Whole30 is to build a support group—and who better to reach out to than the fine people of CrossFit South Brooklyn?

If you are looking for a midsummer fitness challenge, join me for the month of July! Or if you've done Whole30, I'd love to hear about your experience or any advice you might have.

And if a fitness challenge isn't your thing, it'd still be awesome to see you at the BBQ/picnic/park outing!
