Nutrition of the Week:
Virtuosity in CrossFit is described as doing the common uncommonly well. You can do this with your nutrition too. Over the past few weeks, we’ve been talking about simple habits like sleeping well, staying hydrated, eating enough protein, and meal prepping to have meals and snacks at the ready. If you can do these things well, MOST of the time-you have figured out the keys to nutritional health.
The trouble for most of us though is that we think this is easy-just because it’s common doesn’t make it easy. In fact, I would argue that it’s even harder BECAUSE it’s simple. There’s nothing sexy about it. No one’s gonna make you eat just boiled cabbage, give up carbs, or drink vinegar. There’s no magic pill. You just literally have to put in the work every day, most days, for a long time.
Here’s the thing though-I KNOW you can do it. You show up to the gym to work out most days-that’s a habit you built over time. You and everyone else knows to hold you accountable if you start slipping-hey where’s so and so been?
You can create that same environment for success with your nutrition too. If you need some help holding yourself accountable in that area-tell your friends. If you need more help, contact me for macro coaching. At the end of the day, it’s these simple habits applied consistently that will bring you success.
