How fit are you: sickness, wellness and fitness

     Good day everyone. Its another wonderful CrossFit day, isn't it? The birds are out, chirping and doing burpees... ok, maybe not. But, I'm sure they would if they knew how.

     Alright, so yesterday we talk a little bit about what it means to be fit, and we went over "The Hopper". Today, we're going over fitness again, today we're covering "Sickness, Wellness and Fitness"

     Alright, so above is a brief overview of what I was talking about. Basically, its all about which category you fall into, based of factors of you body. Take a look, your blood pressure: if its high, you're probably falling into sickness. falling in normal, the we fall in wellness. A nice low BP will throw you into fitness. It's going to be the exact same for your body fat, cholesterol, muscle mass, strength, power, flexibility and everything else you can think of.

     Now we can't just jump around willy nilly throughout the levels. If you have a 400 lb Deadlift and then have a really crappy cheat mean... then you'll probably still have a 400 lb Deadlift the following day. It's all about maintaining our fitness at those high levels. We have slip ups in our nutrition, we miss WODs and we have bad days... doesn't mean we still won't be fit tomorrow.

     I know this is very brief, but I don't want to give you all the answers (that and this blog is coming up to crunch time). However, just look at this, and think about where you fit in, and where you want to end up. I'm sure we all want to fall in the Fitness category, so lets keep striving for that every day. Eat right, move well... and do burpees.

Paleo Challenge Day 23/30
Yesterday was a bad day, the morning was just going all types of bad... really felt like breaking Paleo for a BK breakfast. Luckily, I remembered what I was doing, and how important it was to stay on track. Crisis averted.
