Thursday Updates – New Year, New Challenge
Did you over-indulge a bit this holiday season? Simply take your eye off the sugar intake? Or let your guard down all together?
Well here’s some group motivation to get back to simple, clean, paleo, no-sugar eating: A 4-week No Sugar Paleo Challenge.
- CFers familiar with all this can go to the Fun Size Livestrong.com group and start tracking food by Jan. 14. (The group is titled, “CF Fun Size Incentive Group Wt. Loss Chall.”)
- Anyone new to this can attend a Paleo/No Sugar Diet Introduction on Sunday January 13 at 9am (after the Sunday Special). Explanations of what to eat, how to logon to Livestrong, etc. To maximize performance at the gym, CF encourages everyone to eat clean and healthy. Participating in our No Sugar challenges is a great start!
**Log your “Weight In” on the sheet behind the desk by January 14. As usual, track your food every day at Livestrong, keep each other motivated!
- Mental toughness/discipline
- Cut calories/portions
- No sugar
- Eat clean…
Easy as (raisin) pie!
Also new to Corps Fitness in 2013 is a new yoga offering!
Amy Sharkey is bringing yoga to Corps Fitness. The adult class is a vinyasa flow class (meaning movement with breath) that is intended and can be modified for all!! This is a great way to get a deep stretch while still being active. The breath work taught during the class is a calming strategy taught to reduce stress and to find calm in a busy world. Class ends with a well deserved rest in Corpse Pose.
The children and young adults’ classes (coming soon for children age 3+) are based on the vinyasa flow style but taught in a kid-friendly way. Children and young adults will get a nice stretch and learn calming strategies to use in their daily lives. We listen to music, play games, and use visualization during the classes and end in a quiet pose to pull it all together.
The current class schedule is Tuesdays 8-9PM, Thursdays 6:45-7:45PM and Fridays 9:30-10:30AM, taught in the new yoga/spin room off the main workout area. No experience necessary, and all levels/abilities are welcome!
