THURS 10.3.13 Beka’s CFMakeover Goals

By | CFMakeover, WOD | 2 Comments

My goals for the CFMakeover

By Coach Beka
My goal for the challenge isn’t as black & white as just gaining muscle or leaning out. It’s a little of both. I’m excited about this challenge because it’s unlike any of the ones I’ve done in the past…it’s not just nutrition and we aren’t all doing the exact same thing. This is where we get to choose what WE want out of it and how disciplined we will be to get there.
My goals are: Eat mostly paleo: very clean, non-processed food. I’ve done strict paleo before and leaned out more than I wanted. I’m a borderline hard gainer. There will occasionally be a piece of gluten-free bread or white potatoes in my meal.
Limit “open meals” to twice a week: Even in those I will stay gluten-free and dairy-free.
CrossFit 5x per week & yoga at least 1x a week
Limit alcohol to one day a week: No sugary mixers, no shots. Liquor with soda water or wine.
Eight hours of sleep a night: Coaching most of the morning classes makes this a challenge, but I will do my best to be asleep at 9:15 the night before coaching.
Increase back squat max, deadlift max and max strict ring dips.
Get into a regular supplement routine: Take nighttime recovery, fish oil and post-workout protein.

I want to feel better, look better, sleep better & eat better…not just for October, but on a maintainable level. #LBN

Is the CFMakeover a “paleo challenge”?

Lots of people are asking whether you have to eat a strict paleo diet during this challenge. YES… as much as possible, we recommend you clean up your diet to see dramatic results in 30 days! BUT, the challenge is less about being perfect and more about creating new, healthy habits. So make it what you want. Set goals before the month starts, stick to them, and you’ll get results.
Some examples: Eat strict paleo 6 days a week. Cut back alcohol consumption to 1x a week (OR do a whole SOBERtober). Eliminate gluten. Eliminate sugar. Avoid processed foods. Sleep eight hours a night. Do mobility work daily. Train regularly. Work hard in the gym. Meditate daily. Visit the farmer’s market each week. Plan, shop and prepare meals every Sunday. Bring lunch to work 3x a week. Try one new recipe each week. Take fish oil daily. Look amazing in your Halloween costume.
AND THE LIST GOES ON… We’ve got FIVE CFMers signed up already. What are your goals for the challenge? Post in the comments below.

Cost: $40 for CFMembers (Gold: $34, Silver: $36); $50 Friends & Family. REGISTER NOW!
