Is that paleo?
If it’s worth doing, it’s worth writing down.
Let’s talk about how to use your 7VCF Success Journal… There are a few different sections in the notebook that were purposely put in there. Not just to fill space, but because the sections will help facilitate a smoother transition into life as a functional fitness athlete, or CrossFitter.
So, most of you with journals use the WOD log sheet section on a daily/weekly basis to track your workouts. AWESOME. Keep doing that. But there’s more to the journal than that. Flip to the third tab and you’ll find a section specifically for nutrition. The intention here is not to make it a recipe book or pinterest board for those paleo treats. But, for you to insert information you learn about what kind of nutrition will best fuel you for your lifestyle. We are not going to preach paleo, zone, sugar-free, carb-free, or any other diet “fad” or lifestyle. But, we will highly recommend eating REAL FOOD, from real sources. So, if you look at the list of ingredients on a food label (wait, if it has a label it’s probably not real food from a real source, right?- that’s a discussion for another day) and you see something that doesn’t come from nature, chances are it’s not supposed to go inside your body. However, most of the nutrition questions we get asked as coaches is about what to eat before and after workouts. So, here is a short, easy to read article with some specific examples of some pre-wod and post-wod real food snacks…

When you find an article like this, or another that hits home with you, save it, print it out and put it in the nutrition section of your success journal. Then, you won’t have to wonder, “Hey where did I read that it’s good to eat a sweet potato after your workout…?”
I want to hear from you, what are your favorite pre-wod and post-wod forms of fuel? Leave a quick comment below!
