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!

Tomorrow we’ll shed a little insight into how to use the next tab in your Journal!

Pre-WOD: I like an apple with peanut butter and then an extra scoop of just peanut butter for good luck.

Post-WOD: If its in the fridge at the box my default is a sweet potato and two hard boiled eggs.

When I get home from school before the gym I'm usually STARVING so I immediately make kale chips and have a handful of nuts (usually almonds) and then I'll eat a quick banana, apple or Huscle bar before the WOD...afterwards I like to get something in me within 15/20sih minutes after working out to refuel the muscles that I just worked so hard...even if it's just a snack. Then once I get a chance to actually sit down and eat, it's chicken and veggies.

I'm sad to say that I haven't found a favorite healthy snack yet. I'm usually starving when I get home from work so I go into Hoover mode and suck up whatever food happens to be around...But I'm thinking that with proper planning and preparation I could find something healthy to inhale instead. :-) I do love hustle bars. That counts right?
