It’s that time of year again – that time when we find ourselves hurriedly seeking to recover from all the yummy indulgences we accept as part of the holiday season. Sometimes finding our way back is easier said than done and often requires relying on a network of family and friends intent on recovering as well. This year add your CFI family to that network!
The first step (well the first step after deciding this is your goal) to getting back on track is finding those in your network that are conducive to your goals. This doesn’t mean that you need to find a new network, rather it means that while your goals may be focused on reset, other goals may be on your significant other/family/friends minds and as a result your goal of eating healthy and getting back into your workout routine may sit second to their own. So after looking around your usual network and perhaps finding one or two like-minded/goal-oriented folks turn to your CFI family and seek out the same. There is sure to be at least one in your usual WOD time that is looking for their own reset and hoping for a CFI friend doing the same.
Once you find each other – no matter the circle you find them in – identify some ground rules that you can all agree on as mutually achievable and then get started being accountable to each other!!! In the coming weeks we will explore areas that can help get our eating back on track and methods to avoid that post-holiday relapse we find ourselves faced with towards the end of January.
As the foundation of CrossFit, nutrition is a key component to getting the most out of our workouts … find your reset partner and 3-2-1-GO!
