For those of you that have spent this past month focusing on your nutrition, whether it be your water intake, protein increase or reducing your bad habits, great job! Spending time focusing on everything you enter your body can be time consuming, challenging and extremely frustrating. But, it can also be incredibly rewarding.
As someone who has spent the past year, logging every single thing I ate every single day-getting on the scale daily, taking measurements weekly, I understand more than most the commitment it takes to improve your nutrition. But, the payoff can far exceed the challenges. I have seen weight loss, inches lost, improved Crossfit performance and an overall improved well being.
Even though I lost the majority of my weight in the first six months of my time working with Alex, the importance of continued focus and maintenance is critical. While we all know what we are “supposed” to do regarding our nutrition, keeping the focus front and center in our minds is of essential. For those of you participating in the “partner challenge”, you have been working on areas that you wanted or needed to focus on. The support of Alex as well as your nutrition partner, has allowed you to focus on what is important to you. By continuing forward in achievement of your nutrition goals, those resources will provide the chance to continue building on what you have learned and to take the accountability upon yourself over time, or maybe even work on another aspect of your nutrition that you may now be ready to address more specifically.
As a creature of habit, I continue to work on adding new foods into my very restricted diet and finding new recipes to cook for myself. Alex has been an invaluable resource in helping me to set realistic goals and push me outside of my food comfort zone and try new things. I hope you all will continue forward on your nutrition journey and utilize the amazing resources RPE has to offer to achieve the results you are looking to achieve.
