We are in the midst of the holiday season… and how can you be sure? Well, next week we feature not one, but TWO holiday themed workouts. First up comes Eight Days of Hanukkah that will take place as a mid-week group WOD and then the Twelve Days of Christmas is featured the following Saturday Dec 23rd. Celebrate both of them at the Hut next week!
How do you handle the holidays with respect to partaking in the sweets, alcohol, and other excesses related to food intake? Let’s first discuss the topic of receiving gifts of cookies, candy, and other sugar laden “foods.” This came up during the Monday 6am workout group… and the overall sentiment is that you should not feel guilty about throwing food away that you would otherwise not be willing to eat. Someone give you a gift basket with treats that you deem poison… toss it. It’s okay to throw it out. Of course, it is also okay to eat some or even all of it… BUT not out of obligation to the person who gave it to you. What do you think about regifting it? My personal thought on this is if you aren’t going to eat it because it is bad for your health… then why give it to someone else who might not have the resources, support (CrossFit), and/or will power to avoid binging on it? More on these topics as we dive full-on into the holiday gluttony.
