Combine Movement with Good Nutrition

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

Getting moving in the new year isn’t always easy, but I believe it should be a must.

A majority of us set new goals for the new year; such things as, “This is the year I’m going to get into shape”. And jumping right into it can feel scary and overwhelming, almost like you have these high expectations of yourself and then don’t meet them and keep repeating the start process over and over again.

So here are a couple small steps to get moving in the new year and stay moving.

No. 1. Find how it is you are going to move your body when it comes to exercise — hike, bike, swim, weight lift, etc. Commit to it three to four times a week, 30 to 60 minutes each time. The time will pass anyway, so go get after it.

You will thank yourself because movement brings so many healthy and good endorphins.

No. 2. When you move more, pairing it with good nutrition creates the results you are looking for and what we all need; good healthy sustainable results. So think about fewer meals eaten out, less alcohol, less soda, etc., and add in more veggies daily.

Make the new year your best yet!
