Get Fit. Live Fit. Be Fit.

Week 1-One and Done!

You guys are all doing an amazing job! Congrats on another week of fun and hard work!

Nutrition for the new athletes has been sent out. Returning athletes this is your time to refocus, remind, plan and attack what you know. If you need a little tune-up let Lindsay or D'Anza know as we can only help you if you ask.

If it has been more than 2 months since we have taken your measurements let us know. We can schedule a time before or after class next week to do so. If your body comp has been taken by D'Anza in the past and it has been close to 12 weeks let her know. We can get it re-tested and readjust your nutrition as needed.

Who is on My Fitness Pal? If you have an account and want us to check in, let us know. This is just another way for us to help you and keep you on track and hold you accountable.

We look forward to another amazing week with you all next week! Happy Friday everyone and enjoy your weekend.

Week 1 Challenge

It is that time again to rally up yet another challenge. As returning athletes refocus on their nutrition and new athletes learn about healthy changes it makes sense that we challenge you all to incorporate some healthy changes in day to day.

Snacks are what helps us get from meal to meal and also help in keeping our blood sugars level. It keeps us from that afternoon drop or better yet, it sets us up for our late day workout, time with the family as well as better sleep.

If you are following your nutrition plans and eating
Breakfast, snack, Lunch, snack and Dinner with even one last snack you are on the path to success. Staying fueled throughout the day and always being prepared is key. In case you ever had any doubt you can ask our 6am athlete Stacey L who drives in from Powell Butte every morning prepared and ready to tackle her day. (More to come on her later)

So here is our goal to YOU:

From Friday September 20 to Sunday September 29th we are challenging each of you to work add 1-2 veggies per snack in addition to 1 healthy fat*

Veggies you can add as much and as many different varieties as possible. The Healthy fat will be only 1 serving at either your mid-morning, mid-afternoon OR post dinner snack. Since you are likely getting 2 other healthy fat servings throughout the day adding 1 extra is perfect. Everyone should focus on getting 3 healthy fat servings a day. What is a healthy fat? It equals approx. 5 grams of fat and 45-90 calories depending on the fat. Here are some examples and their serving size.

Almonds 6

Avocado 2 tablespoons (1 ounce)
