Nutrition Challenge – Week 2

Posted on May 12, 2013

Week 2: Nutrition Challenge  Monday thru Sunday!

SET A goal!!!  Incorporate a real 6 week goal and get it up on the brown paper at CrossFit.  Do you want to lost 5 points.  Lose 5 inches.  Get 5 unsolicited compliments, Fit into a pair of jeans hanging in closet.  Learn Good from bad Carbs, Learn to be more disciplined with cheats…choose a goal!  The more specific the goal the more likely you will achieve it!


Start with 10 points.  And add and/or subtract based on being good or bad:)  At end of week submit Score via comments section of this post!

* Plan out 3 cheats for the week and stick to those 3.   No EXTRA or Opportunistic Cheats!  subtract 1 point for any cheat other than your 3 planned!  Even if it was your 1st cheat of the week – if it was opportunistic and not planned ahead of time, it is a minus 1:(

* Every Day this week (Monday – Sunday) drink 60 oz of water and eat 4 veggies.  Every day.   Subtract 1 for each day you miss on water and each day you miss on 4 veggies.

* NEW Cheats now include bad carbs!  Bad carbs are those that cause insulin spikes such as bread (even whole wheat) pasta, popcorn, rice, potatoes.   ALL cereal, 100 calorie packs and crackers!  These carbs trigger your body to store fat:(  Instead of these bad carbs go for good carbs that are lower on the glycemic index scale…High GI means insulin spike = store fat….low GI = no spike.  Healthy carbs include beans, apples, oranges, berries, oatmeal.    Some fruits are high on the GI scale and should be eaten sparingly (watermelon and bananas for example).. Google the GI of any food and it will be notes as low medium and high.  Avoid high, eat Medium sparingly, and choose low on GI INdex  for your carbs!

Bonus Points:  Post something  on our CF Facebook group  about healthy eating, a recipe or anything.  Posting at least once gives you 5 extra points.  Go for ANOTHER 3 mile run or walk this week and post to let us know and motivate us! That gives you another 5 points.

Max Points for the week 20 ( 10 + 5+5).

Examples on Scoring: By end of week I had one opportunistic cheat and missed water on Thursday and did not get in all 4 servings of Veggies and 60 oz of Water on Saturday.  But – I posted a recipe on FB and ran and posted a 3 mile run I did!  Score = Start with 10 – 1 (opportunistic cheat) – 1(veggie miss Thurs) – 2 (water and veggie miss on SAturday) + 5(recipe)  + 5(ran and posted  3 miles) = 16.
