Be Aware of your Actual Day-to-Day Health

by Blayne Soriano, Level 2 CrossFit Coach and CrossFit Kids Coach

When it comes to health, your health, are you actually aware?

Are you aware of the food you are eating, the water you are consuming, the workouts you are doing, how often you are doing them, what duration of time are you doing them, are you sleeping enough hours, are you getting outside, etc.?

Being healthy or taking care of your health looks different for everyone and also takes self-recognition.

I recently ran a challenge in my gym for members. The challenge was to bring awareness of how much water they were drinking, and how much protein they were eating each day.

A tool that we used was the MyFitnessPal app or website that allowed my members to track or log what they ate and drank day to day. This is a perfect example of becoming self-aware.

I challenge you, the reader, to spend one week challenging yourself to track three things: water intake, protein intake and hours of sleep. My personal recommendations are half your body weight in ounces of water each day, close to 120 grams of protein at least each day, and seven to nine hours of good sleep each night.

Find things in your life that bring your awareness up when it comes to your health.
