EVERYDAY WARRIOR Our box is participating in the Everyday Warrior 2015 Battle Series. This is a 4 week online CrossFit Competition with prizes. The cost is $60; and those proceeds go to help CrossFitters with medical bills due to cancer treatment. This inspirational workout series is an awesome demonstration of the CrossFit community coming together to help each other with real needs. More info on the announcement board.

EATING FOR PHENOMENAL PERFORMANCE Not sure if we're sticking with this name for our next healthy eating challenge. Casey just posted a really insightful report on the announcement board from the CrossFit main site about how dieting in the traditional sense is fraught with failure, which most of us have experienced at least once or probably many times.
The more intelligent approach is to work toward a sustainable approach to eating that reduces grains and sugars (especially refined grain and sugar,) and incorporates more vegetables, diverse animal protein, and healthy fats. Yes, we can loose excess body fat with drastic diets that are super-restrictive; but hardly anyone can maintain those type of diets. (Side note: There are many who do just fine with some grain in their diets, by the way.)
What I have in mind is a 6 week period where we can come together in a 'Supper Club' format taking turns visiting each other's homes. One home per week. You can volunteer to open your home and share your healthy eating tips; or you can just do one or the other. I'd like to start mid January.
If you are interested in being part of this, let me know. I think it will be fun as well as a great opportunity to share all kinds of plans and practices that will encourage us to cook healthier, eat out less, eat nutrient dense food (and get the kids to do so too!), and eliminate some of the junk...in a balanced, realistic way that can be sustained long term.
