Checking in!

Hello fellow Bring Sexy Back challengers!

It's been 10 days since we started tracking our nutrition, water intake, sleep, and exercise on a daily basis. I wanted to check in to see how it's going. By now you should hopefully be past any symptoms you may have started noticing when first eliminating certain foods from your diet (such as fatigue, digestive issues, headaches, etc.). I hope you have found a rhythm to your days so that the "challenge" is becoming more manageable.

If for some reason you are struggling, please talk to your coach or to me about what's going on and we can try to help you figure out what's holding you back!

Here are some tips if you are invited to any parties or social situations in which you will be tempted by lots of non-healthy foods:

Plan, plan, plan, and take a no excuses approach.

Some tactics are:

1. Eat before you go

2. Bring a compliant appetizer/dish to share

3. Soda water looks remarkably like a cocktail

4. Focus on the socialization and not what is in your hand or your mouth


Now, a little about the workout tomorrow:

Fight Gone Bad is one of the CrossFit benchmark WODs. It was designed to simulate the time domain of a mixed martial arts bout of five minutes of work followed by one minute of rest. It has been used in 3 and 5 round versions. The workout first appeared on on 1 December 2004, although a hint of the workout appeared as just a snapshot image on 7 October 2003. It was so named after BJ Penn, a professional mixed martial artist, remarked that it was like a "fight gone bad" when asked how it compared to a real fight.
