Whole30 Blog #8 (1/31/16)

Exercise.

How does it fit in with whole-food based eating?

It fits quite nicely actually.  As I stated at the very beginning, this food philosophy goes well with crossfit.  My husband is no longer practicing with a gym but he understands the concept well enough to perform most things at home. WODs - Workout of the Day.  I'm sure many of you know what I'm talking about.

I never drank the crossfit juice.  I was super concerned about hurting myself.  And after severely spraining my ankle last October while playing with my kids, I'm even more less inclined to take the risk.  However, I am a yoga lover.  My dream would be yoga at least 3 times a week.  And that would be about it for  me.  I carry children all day long, and never sit down.  So I've convinced myself I don't need much more than this self-prescribed routine.

Don't quote me on this but I've heard that our physical state is comprised of 80% nutrition.  So if 20% of it is based on exercise, then I think anything you can do is better than doing nothing.  Walking, weights, elliptical, crossfit, yoga, P90X, running, swimming, biking, marathon training, triathlon training, fitbit, 'The Biggest Loser' workouts, hiking, playing sports, really anything.  Play with your kids, go skiing or snowshoeing, plan to hike a 14'er. Make it fun, and it won't seem so awful.  I really don't think we need to live in a gym to be healthy or fit.

I do believe that we should be super concerned with what we eat. 

This is my blog so I get to say what I want.  

Night folks -
