Happy New Year – 2014
I would like to personally thank you for an amazing year. We have met so many new and amazing people that have each blessed our lives. We are truly thankful.
2014 Be SMART( SPECIFIC, MEASURABLE, ATTAINABLE, REALISTIC AND RELEVANT, TIME-BOUND)
I encourage you all to take a different approach to the standard “Resolutions”. I am personally not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions, as too often people put off what they want or need to do for a specific date….just because it is the status quo. Instead of resolutions this year….set SMART goals. Write them down and make them happen. Even if you do not reach your goals, the path you take towards achieving them will only make you better, faster, and stronger.
NUTRITION IS KING
Let’s face it….diets fail. Nobody wants to drink a juice for every lunch for the rest of their life. Instead of dieting, try a lifestyle change. Make changes that you can sustain and be happy about. Eating is a very social thing that should not be looked at in a bad way. We eat with family and friends. Don’t feel bad about what you are eating. There are several good meal plans out there. One of the better ones out there in my opinion is The Zone Meal Plan. Here is a link from the CrossFit Journal that you can download and read up on it. http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/cfjissue21_May04.pdf
Advocare 24 Day Challenge Contest
We have had so much success with Advocare products this year. As a box, we have lost over 1000# and countless losses in body fat percentages. On top of that, the 24D Challenge is going on SALE from Jan 1-21st. We will run a contest similar to the one we did last year. We will have a closed group FB page where people can share meal ideas and talk about how they are feeling on the challenge. Doing this as a group greatly increases your chances for success and a kick start to your new SMART Goals! The contest will have winners for both percentage total weight lost AND percentage total body fat lost. I would prefer to measure everyone here, HOWEVER if you are remote and can not make it in, then you can still participate. All I would need is a photo taken of you on the scale before and after the challenge. Our Challenge will Start JANUARY 13th. I will need all measurements by that date. Please order your challenge between Jan 1 an d the 11th, so that we can all start on the same date and also take advantage of the sale.

Finally, if you are not familiar with the 24D challenge and would like more information, please send me a note and I can give you a call. Here is a good video about the 24D challenge as well. http://www.advocare.com/24daychallenge/tools.aspx and one more from Dr. Oz about the OmegaPlex! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxFOvalRVaQ
I hope 2014 is AMAZING. Don’t forget to order your challenge NLT 1/11/14.
Keep Calm….WOD ON!
