I completed a Level 1 Crossfit training certification this weekend. Now I’m apparently an ambassador. Yikes.

One of the presentations covered nutrition. Coach Denise challenged us to think about the food decisions we make every day. We’re confronted with at least 15 every day: how much P, C, or F x three meals & two snacks. Add to that a couple of opportunities to say no thanks!

My daily food choices can unravel my training efforts. Case in point: I’ve watched my weight creep up five pounds this fall as I’ve eaten more carbs. Not a lot more (denial!), just enough though. And that’s not the direction I want to go.

Coach Denise asked us to think about 23:1. We put in one hour of training every day; what are we doing with the other 23?

This week I’m focusing on changing just one thing: eating breakfast within 30 minutes of waking.

I’m adding this habit to the one I started last week, which I am continuing to do: Photograph/record every bite. (I created a private blog for this record keeping since I cannot fathom anyone else besides me finding it interesting. I could be wrong though.)
