Memorial Day Murph WOD
Heat Times - 8/915/1030a


Helpful Tips...

  • Breaking the work into 20rds of: 5 pull-ups + 10 push-ups + 15 squats will help you move more steadily and keep you from getting over fatigued.
  • Anyone can do Murph, no matter your skill level or experience doing CrossFit! If this is your first Murph, we usually recommend partnering up with someone and splitting up the work or completing a half Murph - which would be:     1/2-mile run + 10rds of (5 pull-ups + 10 push-ups + 15 squats) + 1/2-mile run
  • Can't do pull-ups?  Not to worry - banded, low bar, ring rows and jumping are all great options.
  • Have trouble with push-ups?  Do them off of a low bar or box.
  • Have trouble squatting low enough? Use a box or ball as a target.
  • Can't run...sub any machine as follows...2000/1600m Row/Ski (or) 4000/3200m Bike erg (or) 2.4/2.0 mi. Assault Bike
  • If you plan on doing Murph as prescribed (unpartioned - wearing a weighted vest) please bring your own if you have it...though we have several extra vests at the gym.

Whichever option you choose to go with, know that the important thing about completing the Memorial Day Murph Challenge is this: that you came together with the community to push yourself through the pain of a workout, as a way to honor those who have sacrificed everything so that you are able to do so!

As most of you are aware, my wife Kathy has spent the past 2 years battling Thymic Carcinoma, which is very rare type of cancer.  In fact, so few people get this cancer (less than a one-in-a-million chance) that its often referred to as the unicorn cancer.  Because of its rarity and the minimal data and research on this type of cancer, there is no specific treatment option.  Fortunately, Kathy was lucky enough to be diagnosed at a relatively early stage, but most are not that fortunate.  

May is the Thymic Carcinoma Day awareness month and this Saturday May 11th at 2pm, Kathy and I will be participating in a virtual walk event to raise awareness and funds for the Thymic Carcinoma Center, which provides education and support to both patients and caregivers.  The meet-up location will be at the New York Ave entrance to the boardwalk in Long Beach.  It would mean the world to us to to have your support at the walk and/or via a donation. If you’d like register for the walk - we have it listed in Push Press on 2pm Saturday.  If you’d like to make a donation you can go to https://runsignup.com/kathealy

Memorial Day is just around the corner (May 27th), and whether you’re new to CrossFit or not, you’ve probably heard about Murph at some point.

In case you’re unfamiliar, “Murph” is a classic CrossFit workout known as a Hero WOD. Hero WOD’s are made by CrossFit to honor the men and women that have fallen in the line of duty. This one is specifically to honor Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005.

Murph
1 mile Run
100 Pull-Ups
200 Push-Ups
300 Air Squats
1 mile Run
*With a 20/14lb Vest 

This workout itself was Michael’s favorite workout to do, which is why every year, CrossFitters synonymously around the world pay special tribute to Lieutenant Murphy by joining together to push through this tough workout. Click here to learn more about Lt. Murphy’s story.

WHY HERO WODS ARE IMPORTANT

Obviously, first and foremost, Hero WODs pay tribute and honor to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. For a community built around fitness and hard work, a few moments of silence just isn’t enough. We show our love and respect through our sweat, labored breathing and ripped hands. CrossFitters show love and respect a little differently than most. We use our mental and physical fortitude. We push ourselves to uncomfortable places in an attempt to say ‘thank you for your sacrifice’.

The Murph Hero WOD is a challenging workout that requires a high level of physical fitness, endurance, and mental toughness, and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour to complete. Like any workout we do, Murph can be easily scaled to suit anyone’s ability level, as the work can be broken up into smaller pieces or shared with a partner.

Murph is a Memorial Day tradition at CFSD, so we hope each and every one of you chooses to join in.  Heat times for Murph this year will be: 8am / 915am / 1030am with a CFSD BBQ to follow at 1130am.  Family and friends are welcome to attend.

2024 CFSD Murph shirts are available by clicking this link – orders are due by next Monday 5/13.

CFSD Spring Kitchen Clean-out Week 2
- Eliminating Processed Foods -
.


.
What is a processed food? 
“Processed food” describes any food that has been altered from its natural state for safety or convenience.  They have been altered or manipulated to make them more available and/or desirable and usually contain added salt, sugar, and fat.  Most people get a vast amount of their sugar and salt from processed foods, and not from adding it manually to whole foods, and the food is often packed with chemicals that aren’t FOOD at all. Though not all ‘processed foods’ are “unhealthy”, but generally consumed regularly they can become unhealthy. Simply put, if it’s been monkeyed with and artificial substances have been added, it’s processed. 
.
Why are processed foods less healthy? 
Generally they are low in nutrients, low in fiber and hyper-palatable and hyper-rewarding, which leads to over-consumption, addictive-like behaviors, obesity, and inflammation, among other things.  As a general rule, if it has no nutritious value, and it does not HELP your body, DON’T eat it. There is no point. Of course, occasionally having a treat with your family, or going out to dinner or a special event isn’t going to sabotage your goals too much, but. ‘occasionally’ doesn’t mean every day or even every weekend. That would be ‘regularly’.
.
Processed foods contain all sorts of unidentifiable artificial junk!
 ✓Preservatives: Chemicals that make that stuff last FOREVER. 
✓ Colorants: Chemicals that make it pretty. 
✓ Flavor: Chemicals that enhance flavor and trigger your brain‘s reward centers. 
✓ Texturants: Chemicals that alter or create a certain “feel” 
.
Quick Facts About Processed Foods
✓ They’re sneaky - Processed foods makers use healthy buzzwords like ‘all-natural’ & superfood.  These terms are misleading and say nothing about the nutritional or health benefits of the food
✓ Not all are bad - it’s the ultra-processed foods you have to worry about.  Minimally processed items, like most frozen vegetables, meats, plain yogurt, oats, rice, quinoa, raw nuts are all a good addition to your diet, as they retain much of their nutritional value.
.
Why they’re unhealthy - 
✓ They cause a rapid rise in blood sugar
✓ Emulsifiers in processed foods are linked to changes in gut health. 
✓ They lack any nutritious value.
✓ They are hyper-rewarding. (Habit forming)
✓ They are linked with weight gain
.
What are examples of processed foods
✓ Breakfast cereal, chips, cookies, crackers 
✓ Bread and pasta
✓ dairy/yogurt with added fruit and/or falavors
✓ Many convenience foods like frozen or microwave meals and ready-to-go meals 
.
Here are some tips / strategies to help you cut out processed foods..
1. Keep Healthy Snacks on Hand:  Fresh fruit, a few mixed nuts, veggies, hard boiled eggs, and chicken breast are some of my favorites. 

.
2. Get Creative in the Kitchen:  So we all have a food that we love that is probably super processed and not good for us. For example, I eat Chinese Food every Friday night. What I order is generally 'healthy', but I don’t know exactly what they’re putting into it, so last night I made my own.  Did it taste the same? No- definitely not, but was it good? Heck yeah! 

.
3. Drink more Water: Sugary beverages like soda, sweet tea, juice, sports drinks, energy drinks and those beloved starbucks latte’s are SO high in sugar, but SO low in essential nutrients. If you find water boring, try adding the LMNT electrolyte mix we sell at the gym into some sparkling water or putting some fresh fruit in your water to infuse some flavor in there.

.
4. Meal Prep: I know many of you don’t want to spend time meal prepping, but when I tell you that it helps keep me on track I absolutely mean it.  I prep most of my meals ahead of time for the week. This way, I have control over what’s going into my body and I’m less likely to just grab something just because I am hungry.

.
5. Change the Way that you Shop: Instead of shopping in the aisles at the grocery store, try to focus on staying on the outside. The FRESH stuff. It’s easy to get lost in the aisles of endless processed foods, but when you focus on the exterior you will find minimally processed healthier options that will make you feel better.
.
So I challenge you, starting this week — look at some labels and start to think about what you’re actually ingesting. Replace the processed foods in your diet and replace them with more whole food choices. Think of your body as a luxury sports car. You want top performance? Then you gotta fuel it right.  “You can’t put unleaded in a Ferrari!”  Remember these steps and you will be on your way: Choose higher-quality foods more often, provide adequate nutrients, move often and you’ll live your best life.

How to Stick with The CFSD Spring Clean-Out Over the Weekend.

It’s Friday around 5pm, and it’s the end of the work week. Your job is stressful. Your commute is long. You’re looking forward to going home and unwinding by overeating (and/or over-boozing).  Maybe some red wine, pizza, a giant bag of chips, and bad movie.  Why not. It’s Friday night, and you’ve tried to be good all week, so now you get to eat whatever you want, right?  If this is you, then we need to talk about your mindset, because Friday night inevitably leads into letting loose on Saturday and Sunday as well.  

.
Hopefully you’ve been on point this week and have been avoiding added sugar and fake sugar.  If you are at all serious about achieving your health and fitness goals   - you have to stick with it over the weekend too, or the benefits will be lost and it simply isn’t going to get you where you want to go.  So, before you launch into the weekend - let’s discuss some simple strategies that can help keep you on track.
.
Aim for “good enough” instead of “perfect”. This week we said no sugar, so make sure and stick with that over the weekend - but maybe allow yourself to have something else you enjoy.  Just because Monday through Friday you were faithful to your diet, doesn’t mean you need to reward yourself with a cheat weekend or cheat day, etc.  Pick one meal to have something you might not have during the week, but that’s it - one meal - not a whole day.  
.
Own your choices (Really. Own them.). Do you ever barter with yourself? Make deals, trades or swaps related to food?  “Okay, self, I’ll not eat sugar this week… but I’m gonna collect on the weekend I am gonna eat a whole pint of Ben & Jerry’s”. In this mindset, one “good deed” gives you license to “sin” elsewhere. These trades rarely pay off — they usually just amount to a lot of mental gymnastics that help you avoid making tough decisions and help you justify overeating.  Mind games like this undermine your health goals — and your authority over your decisions…so be an adult - and own your choices 
.
Stop rationalizing. Weekends present all sorts of comfortable justifications for eating a bunch of non-nutritious foods.  It could be anything: You were busy. Or maybe you had nothing going on.  You were traveling. Or maybe you were at home. You had to work. Or you had no work to do. You had family/social meals. Or maybe you ate alone.  Any excuse will do. Powerless victim of circumstance! But being busy, bored, travel, work, or family dinners don’t inherently cause overeating. People eat or drink too much in lots of different situations. Their explanation simply matches whatever happens to be going on at the time.  Rationalizations are a convenient script. They help us make sense of — and perpetuate — our overeating or other unhelpful behaviors. 
.
So, take a minute and think about your weekend and how will you be spending it.  Will you be continuing to target being a healthier and fitter individual or giving in to your compulsions?  Trust me - making one better choice at a time - will lead to some big changes in your life.  Trust the process.

The CFSD Spring Kitchen Cleanout

Tomorrow is Day 1 and this week we're focusing on removing added sugar / fake sugar from the foods you eat.  Sugar can have dozens of different sneaky names, so make sure to check the nutritional facts for added sugar, aS sugar is hidden in many of our favorite foods.  An easy way to see if something had added sugar is to check t he nutritional label (See pic below).  Total sugar and added sugar can be different.   Total sugar will include naturally occurring sugar such as from fruit or dairy, whereas added sugar was added after the fact.  Unsweetened applesauce for example would have sugar, but not added sugar - whereas sweetened applesauce might have added sugar.  

We had sent by email a list of some name that sugar and fake sugars can appear under in the ingredient list.  There was a question on the fake sugars on whether stevia and monk fruit, which are considered natural alternatives are allowed.  The short answer is yes, in moderation.  These alternatives when found in a protein shake or used sparingly in cup of coffee are acceptable, but not so much where it's found in something like a baked good, which would use a large amount.  Remember, part of the reason we are eliminating sugar, is to reduce your body's craving for it, so even small amounts will slow that process down.

Message from the Commissioner (Spirit Points)

It was another week of exceptional effort and athletic prowess at Crossfit Seize The Day. Congratulations to everyone who endured that grueling 20 minutes. Impressive job all!

Onto spirit points. My phone has been blowing up with team spirit from every house (sorry, boss and sleepy dogs!). Clearly, everyone has jumped into the spirit of the Hogwarts intramurals and the 2024 Crossfit Open. Between discussions back and forth about preparing for Thursday's challenge and giving shout-outs and verbal high fives to each other, it has been a great week.

You've shown up in team colors for each other, demonstrated sportsmanship, camaraderie and spirit. It is clear that the spirit points belong to EVERYONE this week!

50 points for Hufflepuffs!
50 points for Gryffindors!
50 points for Ravenclaws!
50 points for Slytherins!

It is a really close race, so BRING IT ALL THIS LAST WEEK WIZARDS!

For Week 2 - here is what we have for Thursday Night…

  1. Workout 24.2 - We need two athletes from each team to do 24.2 Thursday night. Remember, you get points for showing up to cheer them on and points for wearing team colors.
  2. Thursday Night Event #1: Truth  Dare or Dare
  • Each team will have 5 participants.  There will be 20 dares on the board. Each one will be assigned between 2-10pts - with the more challenging dares being worth more points.  One member from each team will go until all players have went.
  • Each participant will pick a card from the board and execute the ‘dare’ on that card.  ‘Dares’ may be funny, gross, embarrassing etc, so probably not a good idea to volunteer for this one if you won’t do almost anything ( nothing will be dangerous).
  • You will receive the points for executing the ‘dare’. - though you will lose the points if you chicken out by not executing your dare as written.  If you do not do your dare, the next team up may do your ‘dare’ for double points.
  1. Thursday Night Event #2: Team Dodgeball
  • Each team will have teams of 5 people. 
  • Each team will play each other once…the 2 best records will face off in a final… 
  • 20pts for the 1st place team (winner of the finals) / 12pts for the 2nd place team (losing team in the finals  / 7pts for the 3rd & 4th place teams
  • Standard dodgeball rules will be used.

** All points are subject to review / change **

Spirit Points (as awarded by League Commissioner)

The Ravenclaws are a particularly chatty group with much speculation about 24.2. They're bouncing guesses off each other and there's a lot of energy to the group chat. Between the videos, chatter and the members I saw there judging others on nights they were not working out, I am awarding them 40 spirit points.

The Hufflepuffs are an energetic group online and no one embraces a theme more than Carolyn and Chief. They have energy in their chats and bring a sea of yellow and black for each event. 40 spirit points.

Gryffindors are a quieter bunch. Santiago brings enthusiasm and encouragement to ALL of the athletes no matter what team they are on, and it seems like he has been there for every heat. They've had good attendance and a good showing of team colors and spirit and the most open registrations. 37 spirit points.

Slytherins, while not overly chatty, have good energy and 24.2 speculation in their chats. They had the most athletes who did 24.1, good repping of team colors and good attendance. 35 spirit points

'Tis the Season...For Over-Indulgence

As we approach the inevitable feasts and indulgences of the winter holidays, it is important to consider how this period of abundance can be enjoyed without incurring the negative health and performance impacts of overconsumption/poor consumption. Unfortunately, it’s common to see people work hard over the course of the year, just to give back a majority of their progress in the 6 weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. You can still enjoy yourself and indulge a little over the holidays, if you follow some of these simple rules…

Don’t change your normal diet, especially if you already have good eating habits.  Staying consistent over the holidays is going to be key.  If you know you are going to be indulging at a meal or event, the most important thing you can do is make sure that the meals directly before and after it are as clean as possible. Additionally, don’t skip meals in anticipation of a big holiday spread. This is a very common mistake. Eat your normal meals at their normal times and you will find that you eat less at the ‘event’. Doing this will minimize the nutritional fallout. 

Avoid drinking calories.  Hot chocolates, egg nogs, Frappuccinos and holiday cocktails/punches are all loaded with unproductive sugar, fat and calories. Yes, they are delicious and though it won’t kill you to allow yourself to have one of these now and then, their calories can add up quickly.

Get your protein and veggies first.  The proteins (ie. the turkey, etc.) along with the greens and root vegetables, are usually the most satiating and nutritious food on the table, so go ahead and load them on to the plate. You can take a taste of anything else on the table you want to enjoy, but portion sizes are where things can go wrong, so have a few spoonsful of your favorite dishes and enjoy them, but that’s it. (FYI - dishes like “candied” yams are a dessert – not a vegetable)

Don’t eat it just because it’s in front of you.  With all of the family, social and work events over the holidays, we are endlessly surrounded by food and beverages.  Just because you are in a social situation doesn’t mean you ‘need’ to indulge.  Just because someone brings food or treats to the workplace, doesn’t mean you ‘need’ to eat it. Making the choice to not participate in the food and drinks is a challenge for many people who succumb to peer pressure. This becomes even more difficult over the holidays because of the relaxed mindset; learn to pick your moments. It’s ok to say ‘no thank you’. 

 A holiday is 1-day – not 6wks. Thanksgiving is one day and to be truthful ONE meal.  Christmas is one holiday, etc.  Yes, Hannukah is 8-days long, but that doesn’t mean it’s a free-for-all.  If we zoom out and look at all of this objectively - there are maybe 15-20 ‘holidays’ over the course of a year, including birthdays and anniversaries.  If we watch what we consume the remaining of the 365 days each year – a celebratory holiday meal will never likely cause weight gain for us. 

Relax  It’s the holidays, so don’t stress yourself out by trying to avoid all “bad” foods. If you want a piece of pie, eat it without feeling guilty…just don’t overdo it.  You’ve worked hard. We want to keep you on track towards your goals with these tips. We also want to make sure that you’re in the right mindset for these things as well, by making sure that you can enjoy these special occasions without feeling deprived, because balance is what we’re looking for.

Don’t Focus on weight loss right now.  With all of the stress, festivities, and treats involved in the holidays there is no need to put extra pressure on yourself to lose weight. The holidays are a great time to focus on maintaining your weight during a time of year that many people are gaining weight.

Veteran's Day WOD

Veteran Suicide Prevention

Sara Wilkinson, GORUCK, and CrossFit present the hero workout “CHAD” - in honor of Navy SEAL Chad Wilkinson who took his life on October 29, 2018 due to the effects of numerous deployments, several TBIs, blast wave injuries and PTSD. Our goal is to honor Chad’s life and legacy and to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

CHAD 1000X has brought together thousands of registered participants, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars raised since 2020, looking to be part of something greater than themselves. To not only bring awareness to the epidemic of suicide, particularly among veterans, but also to help be part of the solution through the support to the The Step Up Foundation and other veteran health initiatives.

For Time:  1,000 Box Step-Ups (20 in)

3 OPTIONS:
1. Slick/Beginner // No rucksack. You pick the height of the step-ups.
2. Standard/Intermediate // 30#/20# rucksack/vest. You pick the height of the step-ups.
3. Expert // 45# rucksack. Use 20" box for step-ups.

Scaling Options
- partner up and share the work however you wish
- do a portion of the 1000 Reps (example 500 reps)
- substitute a different movement, if you an injury that precludes you from doing step-ups

1954m Row*
and then an amrap of:
11 Burpees

Significance of numbers:
1919 - year that Armistice Day was commemorated
1954 - year that Veteran’s Day was declared a national holiday
11-11-11 - Ceasefire for WW1 began on the 11th month of the 11th day of the 11th hour

*2 athletes may share row if desired - but then do amrap individually

-------------

Veterans Day has been observed since 1954 by the U.S. and its origins date back to Armistice Day 1918, which marked the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front in WWI. Veterans Day preserves the historical significance of the 11/11/1918, but also focuses attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A day to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good. 

This Veterans Day, weekend, we will be doing two WOD’s that remind of this significance. On Friday, we will have a 11/11/1918 theme in remembrance of Armistice Day.  On Saturday, along with many other CrossFit’s, we will be doing the Hero WOD Chad 1000x, named after Navy Seal Chad Wilkinson. Throughout the entirety of his career, Chad served honorably, deploying 11 times to combat zones around the world. He was approaching his 21st year of active duty when he died by suicide on October 29, 2018, due to the effects of blast wave injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Chad had strong ties to the CrossFit community, and his taking of his life came as a surprise to everyone.  Chad’s silent fight, wasn’t unlike many of our veterans, where even on our home soil, many continue to fight, but they are not fighting a foreign enemy, they are fighting their own mental health.  By doing Chad 1000x,  we can raise awareness of veteran suicide and highlight the fact that mental health is as important as physical health and people should never feel alone.

This Hero WOD can be done solo or as a partner and scaled in any way needed.

CFSD RUNNING CLUB NOTES FROM 10/15 CLINIC WITH COACH JAX
(Club will meet again on Su 10/22 @ 930am)
.
Pose Method Running Technique Specialist Neo | Singapore Singapore

Having the correct running posture is imperative to being an efficient runner, as well as staying injury free.  

  1. Posture. Establish a neutral posture (flat back) and then stabilize this position by engaging your core (similar to what you would do before starting a deadlift). Focus on keeping your chin level/neutral, eyes forward and shoulders back and down. Engage your glutes and contract your core by drawing your rib cage down towards your belly button and then bringing your belly button in towards your spine. 
  1. Lean. This is the idea of using gravity to actually pull your body forward and let it do as much work as possible. Start by leaning forward from your ankles to start the run, and focus on keeping your hips forward, almost like you're falling forward, and alternating your feet to keep up with your forward fall. The farther you fall forward, the quicker you have to move your feet to keep up, the faster you will run.
  1. Pull. Draw your heel toward your butt using the power of your hamstrings while maintaining a neutral foot position (don’t flex your toes up) and kick your knees forward/up to  extend your legs back behind your body. All of these faults can cause you to put forth more energy than necessary and increase your chance of injury. Practice this by doing butt kickers and high knees in your warmups.
  1. Land. The best and most effective foot position to land on is the ball of the foot, which absorbs the shock of your bodyweight, and reduces impact and preserve energy. Your feet should landing directly under your center of mass.  Keep in mind, landing on the ball of your foot does not mean that your heel never makes contact with the ground. When performed correctly, your foot should be relaxed and your heel should touch the ground for a split second before you go back to being on the ball of your foot before you shift supports. This will reduce the load placed on your calves, Achilles, and ankles during the striking phase of running, which will in turn minimize the injuries that can occur.  If you find you're overstraining (meaning your feet land in front of you), increase your cadence.

Introducing - ‘Friday Fri-Yay’ 
One Friday of every month, we will be hosting a Friday night social event. It will start at 645pm and run until 9/930pm. Each ’Friday Fri-yay’ will have a theme: movie night, card night, game night, etc.  It’s a chance to get out of the house and have some fun and get to know the rest of the CFSD community a little better.
Kick off of our first event will THIS FRIDAY 10/13 at 6:45pm
This 1st Friday Fri-Yay will be a Movie Night - and being October and Friday the 13th, we decided to go with a slightly scary, but fun movie that we think everyone will like – ‘Scream’
Members are permitted to bring family and friends.  We will not be supplying food/bevs, as this is meant to be a night out without being centered around food/alcohol (though this Friday we will have popcorn for everyone).  You are welcome to bring a beach chair and snacks/beverages for yourself or to share with others...
There is no need to pre-register - just come have some fun. We hope to see you all there this Friday!
Jeff and Kathy
PS....the gym will not be open for workouts during Friday Fri-Yay

For our 1st formal CFSD Running Club session, we've invited USA Triathlon Coach, Jaclyn Fahey to come talk about the proper running technique. Since the age of 5, Jaclyn started her journey as a competitive swimmer. 
In college, she became a long distance runner to challenge herself. In her 20s, she borrowed an old mountain bike and completed her first triathlon.
 She’s been hooked ever since – completing and finishing in the top 10 of multiple Ironman races; 70.3’s, 100 mile trail runs, Double Ironman and other “ultra” distance events.
.
There is no fee for active CFSD members.  Please pre-register for this event on Push Press, as space is limited.  Non-members are welcome to attend for a $20 fee, but if the clinic fills up, preference will be given to CFSD members.

30-Day No Sugar Challenge - Reading Food Labels 
.
       

In the October No Sugar Challenge - we are specifically concerned with cutting out "added sugars". For example, apples, sweet potatoes and milk all have sugar in them, but those sugars are naturally occurring rather than added after the fact...so they're acceptable forms of sugar. However, chocolate milk has added sugar.  Per the labels above,  the left belongs to a glass of whole milk - which  has 12g of sugar, but 0g of added sugar.  The 'sugar' in milk is from lactose - which is naturally occurring.  The label on the right is a glass of chocolate milk which has 28g of sugar, of which 17g is added sugars...which is what we're looking to avoid.

To be successful in this challenge, you need to start reading the labels of the foods you're consuming, because sugar is likely going to be found in places you didn't realize.  Low-fat yogurt, sauces/dressings/marinades/condiments, breads/cereals/oatmeal, dried fruit and protein bars - all have forms of sugar added to them.  If you eat out often, it would be a good idea to become aware of what foods are acceptable and what you should avoid, as you won't have a label to read on the menu.  Also when you go out to eat, it's totally reasonable to ask your server if there's any sugar or sweetener of some sort added to  the dish.  

Removing sugar from your diet can be difficult because it has addictive qualities; becoming more aware of what is in the food you do eat will help quell that sweet tooth - and you will crave sugar less over time. 

Lastly, the food industry has many names for sugar.  A few of the names that sugar can masquerade under include (this is not a comprehensive list):

Coach Jeff's 30-DAY NO SUGAR CHALLENGE
(October 2 – November 1)

 

Added sugars (ones that don’t occur naturally in foods) are detrimental to your health in a number of ways...

  • Sugar promotes INFLAMMATION in the body – and Inflammation is the ROOT of ALL DISEASE in our bodies.
  • Large amounts of added sugar SUPPRESSES the immune system, causing you to get sick more often.
  • Sugar suppresses the release of HGH (Human Growth Hormone) in the body which is essential in recovery and anti-aging in our bodies.
  • Sugar will raise your glucose levels, demanding the need for more insulin, which over time can lead to a host of diseases not limited to diabetes.
  • Studies have shown that sugar feeds most cancers; cancer cannot grow in an environment that has a low glucose/sugar level.
  • Sugar has a HUGE effect on your energy levels throughout the day.
  • Sugar is highly addictive. Similar to drugs, alcohol and nicotine, sugar turns on reward pathways in your brain and causes you to go through withdrawal.

WHY YOU SHOULD BE TAKING THE 30-DAY NO SUGAR CHALLENGE…

Cutting down on sugar can promote:

  • Fat loss
  • Mental focus and better mood.
  • Feeling physically better – meaning less aches and pains
  • Eliminating the need for many medications
  • Decreased hunger and food cravings
  • All day energy with no crash
  • Better sleep

THE RULES…

By taking this No Sugar Challenge it means that you commit to having NO ADDED SUGARS in anything you eat this month.

What foods are not allowed on the challenge?

Avoid all refined sugars including white sugar, corn syrup and brown sugar. This also includes all added sweeteners such as sugar alcohols, molasses, stevia, coconut palm sugar, xylitol, agave, honey, maple syrup etc, and all artificial sweeteners such as truvia, splenda, nutrasweet, etc as artificial sweeteners will cause you to crave sugar.  Make sure to closely read your ingredient labels, as sugar is hidden in our foods under dozens of different names.

Are all sugars banned on the challenge?

No. Dairy and fruit contain natural sugars which are acceptable for this challenge, though don’t over consume fruit.  Also, stick to lower sugar fruit such as berries or apples. Avoid higher sugar fruits such as bananas, oranges, and grapes.

What should you be eating during the challenge?

Focus on eating lean meats, vegetables, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds, some fruit and little starch and quality fats.  Focus on whole foods and avoid processed foods. Eating more healthy fats, protein, and fiber will help curb your appetite and ease cravings.

Will training be part of the challenge?

Exercise works hand in hand with eating well, so sticking to a consistent training program, involving constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity will assist in achieving all the benefits of a healthy eating plan.

How to keep accountable during the challenge?

Challenges are always more effective when you are able to share experiences with others going through the same thing, so partner or team up with others to share recipes, tips and your day-to-day experience of cutting unwanted sugar from your diet.

My Sugar Addiction...

Most of my life I have been battling sugar addiction. My childhood home was chaotic and unhealthy, and I learned to use sugar to comfort myself. Through much of my teen years I was overweight, and as I have gotten older, I’ve been told by doctors that I have dangerously elevated blood sugar and cholesterol levels that could affect to my long-term health.

It wasn’t until the past few years, that I realized that what I ate truly impacted how I felt. When I started eating real foods and avoiding sugar and processed foods, my energy increased, my body composition improved, my performance in the gym improved and my health markers have been getting better. I also found that I no longer suffered with seasonal allergies once I gave up sugar.  Or, if they do bother me – the severity has lessened greatly.

I still battle with my sugar addiction, especially at times of stress. I am not trying to demonize sugar or comfort foods and tell you that you should never eat them again, but I do know that I feel my best when I eat foods that are unprocessed and without too many added sugars. I am personally looking forward to this challenge and I hope you all join me in it.

I have chosen to do this challenge in October, it’s a month that we are bombarded with candy and sweets.  Personally, there are many times, that I have bought Halloween candy to hand out on Halloween night and have eaten all of it myself…and then had to go buy more.  That is why we are running this challenge through Nov 1st – to help us navigate that pitfall.

A Big Shout Out To The Following CFSD Athletes….

Lauren Leo and Tracey Cheesman for qualifying for the 2023 Legends Championship.  Legends is the largest worldwide competition for Masters athletes (ages 35+).  For 3 weeks in August and September, Lauren and Tracey competed against athletes from all over the world for a limited number of invites to the Legends Championship, which will be held from Dec 6-10 this year at Arizona State University. Lauren qualified in the women’s 35-39 Rx division and Tracey qualified in the women’s 50-54 Scaled division.  

     

Maggie Desmond, Rob Roberts, Coach Matt and Coach Daniella for their competition of the Ironman New York 70.3 this past weekend.  If doing an Ironman race wasn’t hard enough, the athletes had to contend with nearly the worst weather imaginable this past weekend, with rain, hail and heavy winds. Nevertheless, all of their training paid off, as all of them finished the race, posting excellent times.  

Dylan Conry, Julian Marmol, Derek Nunez, Glenn Messenger, John Benton and John Doyle for all competing in Long Island’s Strongest this past weekend at CFSD.  The 6 of them competed in 5 grueling events over the course of the day with Dylan, Julian and Derek taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in the Mens Teen division, Glenn taking 3rd place in Mens Novice HW, John B. taking 1st place in Mens Masters and John Doyle taking 1st place in Mens Open MW.

      

      

Anytime you put yourself out there to compete, it is physically and mentally challenging…and seeing it through takes strength and determination.  We couldn’t be prouder of all of these individuals for all of their hard work and training.

Hero WOD - 'Hot Shots 19'
Nineteen City of Prescott (Arizona, USA) firefighters, members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighting team, tragically lost their lives on June 30, 2013, while fighting the Yarnell Hill Fire, which was ignited by lightning two days prior. It was the deadliest wildfire in Arizona’s history.

6rds for time:
30 Air Squats
19 Power Cleans (135/95 lb)
7 Strict Pull-Ups

-> This is a long and grueling workout. Athletes should consider scaling the # of rds and/or the # of reps. Athletes should scale the barbell to something that they can move smoothly, use a band on the pull-ups or sub rings rows.
-> another scaling option would be to partner up on this workout.  Share the reps , but then run together.

An Update from Coach Jeff on His Legends Competition....

Hey everyone – I am 2 days into my competition with 2 days to go, so I wanted to give all of you an update on how things are going so far.

Before I do that, I wanted to thank all for your supporting me in this endeavor.  Though I have competed at some local competitions before, I have never really tried to compete at the higher-level events, so this is a new experience for me.  The venue is enormous and beautiful, and the people and the energy here is amazing. I didn’t really come in with high expectations as far as how well I would place in the event, as I am surrounded by many of the top athletes in the world.  I really wanted to just have fun and do the best I could.  

Day 1 (Thursday) – I was pretty nervous coming into it, but I imagine everyone was – and once the clock starts on the workout – the nerves immediately go away.  There were two events in Day 1. And out of the 24 athletes I was competing with, I placed 14th on both events.  The first workout was a sprint of db thrusters, db step-ups and a heavy-tank push (which is like a sled). I thought I moved pretty well on this one, though I made a few mistakes with the sled and my transitions between movements that cost me some time and a face places in the standings. My legs were super wobbly after this event and I could barely walk.  The 2nd event was 7minutes each for max meters on the Rower, Bike erg and Ski Erg. This one was pretty tough.  I felt I paced myself well on this workout, but probably a bit too much and could have pushed the edge a little harder and placed a few spots higher.  Overall, I was pretty happy with how my 1st day went.

Day 2 (Friday) – Was able to get some good food after my events yesterday and got some good sleep last night, so woke up feeling pretty good today, though my legs are sorer than I expected.  Still feeling a little nervous, but that really doesn’t ever go away.  My first event today had fast high-volume workout of TTB, S2OH and DU’s.  This one didn’t go as well as I would have liked as I struggled with the TTB and DU’s and I took a 20th place.  The 2nd workout was quick combo of sprints on a Air Runner which is a self-powered treadmill and DB SADS. I had never used this specific treadmill before. It’s different from a regular one, but I thought I figured it out pretty well and moved ther DB pretty well. They haven’t finished posting the results here, but I think I was middle of the pack. 

Day 3 (Saturday) - Tomorrow they will start to live stream the events. They were setting up huge lighting systems and camera stations when we were leaving earlier, and the announcers are the same ones that you see during the CrossFit Games. It should be pretty cool. Official heat times aren't posted yet, but I think my first event will be around 8:45/9am and my 2nd around 10:45/11am.  You can watch by clicking this link.

So, 2 more days to go. I spent a lot of today recovering, so I hope to feel good tomorrow, as the events tomorrow are hard ones. Again, thanks to everyone for the support!  I want to make CFSD proud…

Nutrition November Day 28
So - today is our last Nutrition November post. Let’s run down some of the key items (we do not need to revisit all 26 but will hit the high-notes) which are truly the foundation of good, clean and anti-inflammatory eating for weight loss, excellent health and performance nutrition:

1. You are what you eat; don’t be cheap and easy
2. Prioritize protein; the most satiating, satisfying and nutrient dense macronutrient
3. Always hunger with a meal; don’t snack - rather always eat a meal that consists first of protein then vegetables and maybe a starch
4. Break-fast epically; make your first meal of the day - no matter when you eat it - the biggest meal of the day
5. Not all carbohydrates are created equally; focus on vegetables, fruits and fresh produce; limit the rest
6. Fats are okay - but don’t marry them - keep them in the friends zone
7. Some foods support, some foods don’t. Grains, gluten and legumes may not be in your best interest (but your mileage may vary); processed foods are never negotiable and should be saved for occasions not routine/daily rotation
8. Fasting can be helpful but start with pairing back to 3 meals a day rather than eating 4-6 meals + snacks; learn to push your meal intervals via incremental measures
9. Macro/calorie counting can work however don’t kid yourself into believing if it fits your macros - it will bring you results all of the time
10. Watch your beverages! Coffee, wine, beer and alcohol matter and count whether you want to believe it or not.
11. Not all oils are good oils; stick with olive oil, avocado oil, coconut oil or grass-fed butter
12. 80/20 aka eating clean Monday-Friday but loosening the reigns on the weekends is not a weight loss strategy - that is a maintenance protocol.

Those are our top 12! There are other concepts discussed along the way - but chip away at these 12 a couple at a time and before you know it - you are on your way to lasting and easy weight loss management and eating for improved health and performance without really feel like you made sweeping changes. Little by little - a little becomes a lot!

Nutrition November Day 26 Tip
Fitness in 100 Words as written by the founder of CrossFit, Greg Glassman. To note here - the first instruction is about NUTRITION!
.
“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: deadlift, clean, squat, presses, clean & jerk, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand pirouettes, flips, splits and holds. Bike, run, swim, row etc - hard and fast. Five or six days per week, mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly Learn and play news sports.”

Nutrition November Day 25 Tip
Counting macronutrients (or “macros”) has been a popular dieting tactic in bodybuilding groups for years. In more recent years - macro counting has gone mainstream — primarily as a tool to change body composition, though it can be used to support athletic performance, as well. Counting macronutrients, often referred to as “Flexible Dieting” or “If It Fits Your Macros” is a regimented form of tracking what you eat that focuses on counting grams of the three macronutrients that provide calories: protein, carbohydrates, and fat.

All foods, from cauliflower to Poptarts, are made up of protein, carbohydrates, and/or fat. Each macronutrient provides a different function within our body, and all three are essential for health as discussed in these Nutrition November posts this month.

Macro amounts are based on a variety of factors and can vary greatly depending on the current conditioning of the person and what they sport of choice is and what the ultimate goal could be: weight loss, building muscle or strength, body composition refinement or athletic performance for a certain race/competition.

With macro counting, each person’s total calories and their macronutrient profile are tailored to their individual goals, but the appeal of macro counting for many people is that they are free to eat ‘whatever’ foods they’d like as las they fit into their daily macronutrient totals — no matter if that’s broccoli or ice cream or cookies.

You’re probably wondering: does counting macronutrients work? In short, it can and does work for those who are diligent and committed. However, many do find weighing, measuring, counting and recording macronutrients complicated and tedious as a long-term diet solution, as precisely counting each and every macronutrient/calorie consumed in one day requires the use of a food scale, measuring cups, and a smartphone app in order to track the composition of every single meal and snack. Not only is it time consuming, but it can also makes dining out difficult or being in social situations where you are not in control of what is being served. And for some, planning and tracking every macronutrient may lead to an unhealthy obsession with food or a diet that is too regimented, ultimately leading to a disordered eating pattern.

Like calorie counting, “if it fits in your macros” doesn’t take into consideration the healthfulness of a food, or important nutrients like vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. So although it may result in the intended goal for some, for others it can be an unhealthy diet if followers choose highly processed foods over whole foods that offer more nutrition. These are those who like to ‘cheat the system’ so to speak…never developing really good nutritional habits.

Macro counting may work for those who do well with very regimented eating plans but also want the flexibility of choosing the foods they enjoy eating, since no individual food is off-limits. However, it’s important to remember that not all calories are created equal: 400 calories of bacon does not provide the same nutrients or volume of food as 400 calories of salmon or vegetables, which means you may need much more food to feel satisfied and satiated. Further - the temptation to avoid food quality can wreak havoc on gut health which ultimately will have an adverse affect over time in weight loss and health goals. We know we sound repetitive when we say this in nearly every post - but when it comes to health, food quality matters. A diet that provides a variety of vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, and healthy fats is a better choice nutritionally than fried or junk foods…even if they fit your macros. At CFSD - we do support macro counting for many of our athletes but for others - we find that living in a more nuanced whole foods approach while limiting known inflammatory foods is an equally effective longer term strategy to successful and lasting weight loss goals - not to mention overall health!

A Note From Coach Jeff:

It’s often a family tradition on Thanksgiving to share what we are thankful for. This Thanksgiving, I wanted to share my thoughts with you all, my CFSD family.

This weekend is CFSD’s 7th Anniversary.  Our 1st class ever was on Black Friday of 2015 (11/27/2015).  When Kat and I started this adventure, we never dreamed it would have such a huge impact on our lives. We knew we wanted to use our passion for fitness to help others change their lives, but CFSD has turned into so much more.  

Each day I arrive in the gym I’m surrounded by the most caring and thoughtful group of individuals, working together, and motivating each other to do their best. I am thankful to have been able witness so many people not only improve physically but become mentally stronger on their CrossFit journey. As a coach, it brings joy to see people in one moment looking like they are struggling to get through a workout, but then smiling and fist bumping everyone after and feeling accomplished.  This lets me know you are being challenged and enjoying the challenge, and that you’ll be back tomorrow to do it all over again.  When we see this, I am quickly reminded why we started CrossFit.  

I am truly thankful for the many relationships and friendships that I have developed over the past 7 years. I’m thankful that you permit us to enter your lives at some of your most vulnerable of moments. When you are drenched in sweat and your minds are muddled with thoughts of defeat, you allow us to encourage you to be the best you can be in that moment in time.  We ask you do things that you never thought possible and then in return you show others what they too are capable of.  As our community has grown, our bond becomes have grown stronger as well, and for this I am eternally thankful.

I am thankful for all of you, as you keep me motivated on a daily basis. CFSD has provided me solace from my feelings of insecurity, vulnerability, and lack of self-confidence.  I see the effort you all put in and it makes me want to keep working harder, as I never want to let you down. You drive me to be a better person–in every sense of the word.

I am grateful for our amazing Coaching staff for the endless energy they bring and the coaching perspective that they have given me.  They have treated CFSD as if it were their own and we wouldn’t be able to have made it through these past 7 years without them.

I am extremely grateful to have such an open-minded, selfless, patient, and passionate wife and partner to be involved with in this undertaking. I could not ask for a better one. To me, she is the heartbeat of CFSD, and nothing could have us helped us grow more as a couple and a family. 

Magic happens at CFSD.  In the past 7 years there have been an endless number of life changing moments and experiences.  I cherish all of them and look forward to all the moments that we be experiencing together in the future.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart...

Coach Jeff

Nutrition November Tip - Day 23 - While Coach Jeff and I never believe in the ‘earning your calories’ model for a variety of reasons, we have used cardio-centric parts of workouts to demonstrate how hard it is to ‘burn’ calories. All too often the mindset of many members has been “well, I worked out hard or 5 days this week - I deserve that {________}.” Sadly those are the people that never lose weight, never get stronger and fall into metabolic derangement and poor health. Let’s be clear: YOU CANNOT OUT EXERCISE THE FORK.

In the early years of CFSD, at Halloween each year - Coach would have a bowl of MINI or FUN SIZE size candies and would ask members to pick one. (Mine? I am not a candy person but Mounds is THE candy that I eat.) Everyone would be gleeful and indulge happily and willingly. He would then ask everyone to read the nutrition information and call out the calories for their choice. Still - no one expected what was to come. Each person had to row the calories of their candy; while he never gave a time cap - he expected everyone to row with intensity to match the calories of the candy they ate.

Again, we do not buy into the ‘earn and burn’ calorie model for too many reasons in a social media post but today’s Thanksgiving Day workout had a cardio component for Part 3 of the workout. YOU and a PARTNER and to bike or ski AS MANY CALORIES in 5 MINUTES SPLIT BETWEEN TWO (2) OF YOU.

Those 5 minutes - which meant roughly 2.5 minutes for each of you produced a lot of sweat, pumping heart rates and gasping for air. Each ‘team’ amounted to how many calories? 50? Coach Jeff joked and said “enjoy your spoonful of dessert’. But in reality - we do not realize how many calories are in our food and how much effort it does take to expend more than we take in…..and this is one of the many reasons why Americans are overweight and unhealthy. We drive our car a couple of blocks, park closet to a store, have food delivered by UberEats/DoorDash, sit on the couch and use a remote to change the channel, and shop online. We move less yet eat more. While our next post will be about how calories matter but not necessarily all that matters - take note of how hard you worked today for that 2.5 minutes and how few calories you really did burn. Having said this - Coach Jeff and I do hope you enjoyed your holiday meal without shame and guilt and that your very next meal will be a supportive and healthy choice. Happy Thanksgiving…..we love you guys more you than you know.

Nutrition November Day 23 Tip - The CrossFit Pyramid

This graphic has been shared by CrossFit HQ many times over the years during seminars, videos and even social media posts. Coach Jeff loves it so much that Coach Matt painted on our back wall a couple of years ago. The CrossFit pyramid provides an excellent visual representation of what matters most in CrossFit. It isn’t your 20 pound PR in your clean & jerk. It isn’t your Fran (benchmark workout) time. We want to believe these are the most foundational milestones of CrossFit; the absolutely most important part of CrossFit (both performance and health) is NUTRITION.

Nutrition is the foundation of the pyramid. The quality and constituent elements of an athlete’s diet influence metabolism and therefore the molecular foundations of muscle, bone, and the nervous system. For this reason, any training system that does not consider and duly correct an athlete’s diet will be suboptimal. Long-term training depends upon a solid base of nutritional support.

At CFSD, foundational nutrition is of course staying away from packaged foods/junk/fast food…of course, over the course of this month we have talked about shopping the perimeter (animal proteins, vegetables/fruits) but proper nutrition absolutely means finding what foods are inflammatory TO YOU. It is very easy to assume grains, gluten, dairy and legumes do not affect you - but if you have never given them up for 30 days or more - you will never know if these foods are causing low level inflammation in your body. We have absolutely learned over the years that most of our members have some sort of sensitivity - not necessarily gastrointestinal upset - but skin rashes, achy joints, GERD, etc. Inflammation is the root of ALL dis-ease and even low level inflammation can inhibit good health, weight loss and athletic performance. Consider doing a trial elimination diet and see if it works for you. You have nothing to lose - excellent inflammation and that could be the little needle mover for you.

November Nutrition Day 21 Tip - The 1-2-3 Rule

So? What is this “1-2-3” rule? It’s simple and if you apply it - it does work well in a majority of cases. We are building on yesterday’s Thanksgiving meal nutrition post and if you made it to the continued part in the comments - I eluded to this rule. First - let’s revisit that Thanksgiving is about the turkey (protein) and the fall harvest (vegetables). Pies and cakes entered into the equation and you can indulge as you are indeed a grown-ass adult who can make good decisions. Remember - dessert is just that ‘dessert’ - not the main meal so first answer your hunger with a meal and appropriately consume your protein and veg. At my mother’s dinner table there are generally no less than 5 pies and cakes she has homemade and that does not even count the cookies my sister baked and the several flavors of ice cream that hit the table. Now, you could easily could opt to take a couple of bites of EACH of these options although that generally leads to eating more than you intended or even feels good, quite frankly. And honestly - if that works for you: GREAT. If you don’t want to get totally derailed and end up in the shame spiral - the 1-2-3 rule comes in handy!

Choose the {dessert} item most appealing to you. Don’t cut a sliver - give yourself the full experience. Put your fork into the pie and be very PRESENT while you savor that bite. Try to experience it without rushing the process…letting that cake/pie sit on your tongue a second or two before you chew and swallow…really taste it and experience the texture. Now assess that one bite. How did it taste? Is it amazing and blissful? Is it as organismic as you remember? Give yourself time with it. Set the fork down on the plate. Have some water, coffee or tea - and enjoy a nice conversation with your family/guests. Try to take a break before your second forkful.

Once you are ready to take that second bite - again check yourself and be present with it and avoid quickly shoveling it into your mouth because it was so good the first time around. Go through the exercise again of resting the utensil on the plate and savoring the deliciousness of that dessert. Now - did it taste as good as the first bite? Be honest - do you now notice maybe something about the texture or perhaps it is a bit too sweet or rich or there is a predominant flavor you didn’t notice before? Or - is this bite just as amazing as the first? Again - sip some beverage and enjoy family and conversation giving yourself time to pause before moving on to that third bite.

Ready for bite number 3? If the second bite was just as amazing as the first - move on to the third bite. If it wasn’t - you can decide that the first bite was life changing but not so sure this second bite felt the same way and maybe that is your cue to move on without eating more. If you do feel you are ready to experience this amazing dessert for bite three - GO FOR IT but issue the same restraint as the first two bites. Experience that third bite for all its glory and indulgence. By now - that third bite and experiencing it without rushing through it may very well be ‘enough’ for you. You may decide that this third bite isn’t quite as earth shattering as the first or second and then you have experienced the beauty of the 1-2-3 bite rule and have created a stop-gap measure from overdoing it. Perhaps. Maybe you are someone that rarely eats dessert ever - including dinner out - and this pie of pie/cake/dessert is just too good to not enjoy - and in that case each of the 3 bites was a complete and utterly beautiful experience - by all means finish what is on your plate and never feel guilt or shame!

However in our experience over the years - most people we speak with do find that 3 bites is generally all it takes to love the dessert and feel satisfied when truly applying the control and restraint of the experience itself. BUT of course there are those people that want the entire thing - and that is okay, too! One day won’t spoil 365 days of eating well. But are you eating well 365 days a year or even remotely close to that? (We will leave you hanging for that post closer to Christmas time!)

November Nutrition Day 21 Tip - Thanksgiving

OH… it is that time of year where we are beginning to stress and think about how we are going to manage Thanksgiving eating.   We don’t want to over articulate or focus on the Thanksgiving meal other than to break it down pretty simply.  In the United States - Thanksgiving is synonymous with turkey (*cough* protein) and the bounty of fall harvest (vegetables if that wasn’t clear).  There is not much else to pontificate over, is there?  Of course there is! We humans have to micro-manage everything we do!  Don’t worry - we will boil it down to a few simple concepts and some esoteric ones so stick with us here.   Simply put - there isn’t much to do with turkey that messes it up and that includes frying that poor bird.  Sure - healthier to roast it slow and low in the oven for hours using simple tried and true basting techniques than deep fat frying it outside nearly causing a fire and adding unnecessary oil and calories to the bird but the fact remains that turkey itself is a fairly high protein, low fat option that is supportive to your overall health.  Somehow - someway in our country - we have managed to take vegetables to a fairly unacceptable place for Thanksgiving. Case in point would be the almighty sweet potato or yam; these root veggies are already sweet by nature but Americans add brown sugar and marshmallows (WHY?) to a very sweet plant.  We add packaged fried onions (of course those are fried in crappy grade oils) to green bean casserole and touted as a healthy green.  We don’t need to go on, do we?  Our strategy for Thanksgiving is pretty simple….load up your plate with turkey. LOTS OF IT.  Find the vegetables that appear as close to nature as they came out of the ground: steamed, roasted, blanched… if it has a cream sauce or butter sauce - just eat it.  Give yourself ONE serving of mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole.  Unless the bread is homemade - opt out…it; it’s likely some commercially made, gummy and not worth it option.  Eat the stuffing as your host likely slaved over it.  DONE.  ✔️  As for dessert: employ the 1-2-3 bite rule.  If you are a client of CrossFit Seize the Day - you already know this cult classic advice.  If not - stay tuned to tomorrow’s nutrition post about Thanksgiving.  It will be our last post about this holiday meal!

terfly Sit-ups

 

Nutrition November Day 17 - Do you struggle eating your veggies?

1. Experiment with fresh or frozen… sometimes one may appeal to you more than the other. Also - try playing around with boiling, roasting, steaming or even air frying… eating boiled anything our mothers used to make made us all turn our noses up as kids. (I hated the way my mom made spinach - she steamed and boiled the life out of it!)
2. Don’t eat the vegetables you hate! Look - you should definitely ‘re try’ what you swore off and experiment with different pretreating techniques - it may appeal to you. As an adult - I love brussel sprouts, but hated them as a kid. But don’t force the vegetables you totally despise…..eat the ones you enjoy. While variety is important - just getting in more vegetables than you normally would have is a great goal!
3. Sometimes those veggies may need a companion. Lean into a yogurt dressing or some guacamole… sometimes it just makes it a bit more interesting and palatable. Just don’t over do it; be mindful calories do matter.
4. Buy pre-cut/pre-washed veggies for the win! Sometimes cleaning, peeling, chopping can be a time suck… and very often some of the pre-cut/pre-washed options do not cost all that much more…this makes it easy to ensure vegetables are in your meal as you have no excuses.

Nutrition November Day 16 - We have a healthier version of chicken fingers that your family will love!  Please don’t buy frozen chicken fingers for your kids …you love and care for your children but a peek at the ingredient list on the leading brands will make your head spin.  It is easy to make our version of chicken fingers that will taste great, take little time to prep/cook - and will be so much healthier!   These are also gluten-free and can be completely grain-free too!  You can choose either gluten-free panko crumbs OR finely ground almond meal (for a grain free option).  Ian’s brand has a great gluten-free panko but there are plenty of options available …..just read the label (if you don’t recognize an ingredient - choose another brand).

- Choose the chicken tenderloins in the meat section; I used regular boneless/cleaned/skinless breast for these instead as I wanted them more substantial and cut into strips.  

- Dredge each piece of chicken in almond or coconut flour…this is an important step to allow the egg and coating to adhere to the chicken.  

- Dip the covered chicken in an egg (or two if you are making more than one package of chicken) beaten with water.  

- Then, roll that piece of dredged/egg coated chicken in the gf breadcrumbs.

- Arrange fully coated pieces of chicken on a parchment lined sheet pan.  

- Brush with a small amount of olive oil.  Bake at 350 degrees until toasted on one side - flip, brush with olive oil again and return to oven to bake until again toasted.  

Thicker cutlets take a little longer but this is generally fully cooked in 20 minutes.  Enjoy with your favorite BBQ sauce on the side along with veggies and a starch for a complete dinner.  So much better than fast food and much tastier than anything packaged. Your family will never know you made these in a much more supportive and healthy way.

Nutrition November Day 15 - We posted this photo last month - but given our “Nutrition November” focus - we felt it was relevant and too good not to share again. Those little afternoon ‘pick-me-ups’ coffee beverages can add up, folks. Besides costing upwards of $5 a pop these days (that is $25 a week/$100 month!) - the caloric load that you are sipping away (and likely not counting towards your daily allowance) can work against your weight loss goals and health given all that sugar! Choose your beverages carefully!

Nutrition November Tip Day 7 - For the love of mankind…..stop eating 5-6 meals a day! This fitness and nutrition myth has been around for decades and won’t go away; there is absolutely no science to this one. Please stop for the good of your health and your waistline. Eating 5-6 meals a day has created a heavier and more unhealthy population because:

- It has caused people to inadvertently consume more calories than they expend each day
⁃ It has created an imbalance in the proper macronutrients for people as they tend to ‘snack’ or have small meals that are too carb dense
⁃ Has created a blood-sugar rollercoaster resulting in the ‘hangries’ and hypoglycemia
⁃ Has taxed our digestive tract/organ. Humans are not designed to graze all day - cows are …. and no one wants to look like a cow!
.
Stop micro-managing your meals… start eating in a way the body is designed to eat which does not mean grazing….our DNA is actually more aligned with ‘feast or famine’. We recently posted on social email suggesting we ‘answer hunger with a meal’. Your first meal of the day should be your largest ….consisting of an abundance of protein and carbohydrates (veggies, folks!) with some fat… 2 whole eggs plus some roasted peppers, onions, maybe some sweet potato fits the bill! (I promise the food police will not come get you if you decide to grab the leftover steak in the fridge and eat that for breakfast!) A beautifully protein forward meal as your first meal carries you for hours as protein is the most nutrient and satiating macronutrient there is. You may even be able to skip lunch - but if not - lunch is pretty much more of the same, just in a smaller portion of protein + veg. And dinner? You bet - same protein/carb/fat approach but in the smallest portion yet. Eat 2-3 meals a day. Start big at the beginning of the day..work to smaller meals as the day progresses. Don’t snack (you don’t need snacks - it’s a modern day construct). If you need to snack - that is a good sign that you did not eat enough at the meal prior. We will share more on this later - but less meals = better for your body in terms of health and the number on the scale! (Hint: this sets the stage to incorporate some intermittent fasting over time…stay tuned for that post later this month!)

Are carbs bad?.  No! But all carbs are not created equally.  Brussel sprouts = carbs.  Bagel = carbs.  Do you consider them the same? If you do - we may have a very spirited debate!   Fruits, vegetables, starchy tubers/root vegetables are carbohydrates….we want them in our diets.  But, flour-based carbohydrate products like bread, bagels, muffins, pasta, cookies, cereal — and such —are considered ‘man-made’ carbohydrates that are less favorable to a healthy, lean body.  Vegetables, fruit and starches all have nutritive value (although starches somewhat less than veggies/fruits), fiber and ‘energy’.  So - when you think you *need* a carbohydrate for fuel - first consider some wholesome fruit and vegetables rather than a processed carbohydrate.  There is no human-need for these kinds of processed/marketed carbohydrates despite fitness-myth and bro-science you read on the internet.  While we try to stay away from labeling any carbohydrate as ‘bad’ - it best to increase your consumption of vegetables and fruits.  Save the processed carbs for the occasional Sunday brunch or a special occasion rather than in your regular rotation.

Nutrition November Day 5 Tip

Which oils are the best to use?  Despite mainstream media and advertising - canola, corn, safflower oil along with other vegetable/seed oils are NOT your best choice. Why? Because most of these oils are highly processed to get them to the color and state you seem them in their gleaming bottles. The more processed an oil - the more inflammatory it becomes to the human body. These oils are cheap to make and very shelf stable for long periods of time. They are also very high in Omega-6 fatty acids which in high levels (or even just out of balance with Omega-3 ratios) will cause chronic inflammation. (Inflammation is the root of all disease). Ignore the labels and marketing hype! What oils are the best to use? Our favorites include:
⁃ Avocado oil
⁃ Butter, ghee
⁃ Olive oil
⁃ Coconut oil
*there are more - but these are easily found on grocery store shelves

Nutrition November Day 4

It’s Friday night…..and nearly everyone is either kicking off the 5pm clock out with a beer, glass of wine or cocktail. (Maybe some of you decide to kick clean eating to the curb and indulge in some treats.).  We’re going with the Friday night alcoholic beverage in this post.  Friday night is about leaving the work week behind and having a drink.  Although alcohol does not contain standard macros like protein, carbs or fat - it does contain calories and one bottle of wine may only be 3 glasses but amounts to a total of 600 calories.  And while you may not consume all of that in your Friday night happy hour - if you are simply drinking one bottle of wine over the course of 7 days (one week) - in one month that is a total of 2400 extra calories that you likely did not account for which for illustrative purposes is around the same as 16 snack-size bags of chips, 5 slices of pizza, 10 bottles of 20 ounce Pepsi/Coke, 11 small fries from McDonald’s or 28 Reese’s peanut butter cups.  Think about that….. I bet you are aware of these foods/snacks but didn’t consider that bottle of wine per week to really be that ‘much’.  You don’t need to give up alcohol - you just need to be more aware of its impact on your body and progress. Cutting back will help you reach your body composition goals more easily as well as improve your sleep.  So - scale back to only ‘one’ drink per week…it’s doable.

Nutrition November Day 3 Tip

Always answer hunger with a meal. What do we mean by this? Swipe to see examples. Every call from your body when it cues up hunger isn’t about ‘calories’ - it is about nourishment. We talked yesterday about the necessity of protein in a healthy diet; answering your hunger with a protein forward meal is exactly what nourishment is about. A meal is not a snack. Try to remove the idea of a small meal or snack from your mind….it is a modern day construct that only put humans on the blood sugar roller coaster….there is no evidence that eating 5-6 small meals/snacks a day will keep your metabolism going; as a matter fact - this is the last thing that helps a metabolism. So, answer your hunger with a MEAL. A meal consists of a protein (meat such as quality grassfed red meat, pastured poultry, wild caught fish) plus a mountain of vegetables. In some cases and depending on your current health status and goals - a small amount of starch such as root vegetables or rice can help round out the *meal*. But a meal must include about a half plate of protein + overflowing other half of vegetables. This meal will keep you going for hours and you will be answering your body’s call for nourishment! Got questions? Ask us!

Nutrition November Day #2 

Prioritize protein. Why? It is absolutely gram for gram, the most nutrient dense, satiating and satisfying macronutrient there is.  Think about it - when you eat some carbohydrates - you always reach for more.  When you eat a nice juicy steak or half chicken - do you find yourself returning to the kitchen for more? No…but that is more of a dialogue not a social media post!  So from a science perspective - why is protein important (and we are distilling it down for space reasons!):

1. Reduces appetite and hunger levels.  Protein is proven to be more filling and naturally reduces the hunger hormone ghrelin; protein also boosts  ‘peptide YY’ - a hormone that makes you feel full.

2. Increases muscle mass and strength.  Protein is the building block of your muscles.

3. It’s good for your bones.  Studies show that people who eat more protein tend to maintain bone mass better as they age over those who do not.  Pretty simple and we bet you didn’t know that!

4. Reduces cravings and desire for late night snacking. Cravings are different than hunger and honestly, cravings are really hard to control!  However the best way to overcome a craving is NOT being hungry in the first place.  Protein helps with that - see number 1!

5. Boosts metabolism and increases fat burning.  Eating can boost your metabolism for a short while because our bodies uses calories to digest and protein actually burns more calories to digest than any other macronutrient.

6. Lowers your blood pressure.  Studies show that protein can lower systolic blood pressure (the top reading) by an average of 1.76mm hg.  A high protein diet also reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.

7. Maintains weight loss. A high protein diet boosts metabolism which leads to an automatic reduction in calorie intake.  One study found that overweight women who ate 30% of their calories from protein lost 11 pounds in only 12 weeks even though they did not intentionally create a calorie deficit.

8. No - it does not harm your kidneys.  We won’t get too far into this - but unless you suffer from advanced stage kidney disease - protein is completely safe to consume!

9. Helps repair itself after injury.  Protein is the building blocks of muscle, organs, tissue and skin.  Without it - healing is slowed.

10. Helps you stay  fit as you age.  One of the consequences of aging is that muscles gradually weaken…. Protein helps spare muscle breakdown.  Sarcopenia is a very real condition of older people which can cause bone fractures, frailty and reduced quality of life.  Eating your protein is a way to reduce age-related muscle deterioration or even ward off sarcopenia.

Labor Day to many Americans symbolizes the end of the summer and a day off and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.  But, Labor Day originated in 1894 to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers who back then often worked long hours in unsafe conditions. Recently, during the pandemic, we were reminded how important workers and working are to our families, our society and our well-being and we should take the time to remember and appreciate all of those that made sacrifices and put themselves in harm’s way during this and other times.

This event has been organized by Tim Cook, to honor the life of his father, Richard Cook, who passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia on January 19th, 2020.  

Inside the #'s - the name of the WOD 'Relax and Active' stands for Richard & Anna Cook, the parents of the event organizer.  19min is for his birthday of 1/19.  218 is their house # and Richard passed away on his 69th birthday, hence the 6 & 9 reps.

This is a Partner workout and not a competition. ALL are welcome to attend and if you do not have a partner, we can match you with someone.  

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why we are asking for your help. Your donation/registration will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.  Together, we can Cook cancer!!!!
