Never Again!

Yesterday, Rina came home from the Squash Club (she was with Ben at a tournament) with a small bag of Cheetos. It’s been a while since we had that kind of junk food in the house and I craved it immediately. I asked Ben to get us a bag as a treat after the girls would go to bed.

This morning, during the warm-up, I felt like puking, I was huffing and puffing and the Ring Rows were my arch nemesis. Not to mention the profusion of sweat.

I clearly noticed the tremendous effect nutrition can have on your physical performance and

  1. I just wrote on my blog the effects of having a not so great diet for an amount of time had on my body, so I can completely relate. That is a gnarly sounding WOD though!

    • I think it was hard, but I’m sure I could have done the FG had I green eating better. That’s ok though, back on track today! šŸ™‚

  2. Junk food makes me feel awful too. Doesn’t always stop me from eating it, but remembering how bad I feel the next day sometimes helps.
