Monday: A Lesson Learned

Monday: A Lesson Learned

Monday: A Lesson Learned

Hey Volts and Vixens ~  Monday’s here and it’s the second week of the Whole Life Challenge. If the first week was anything for you like it was for me then you are entering this week with a whole lot of lessons learned.

Lesson 1) I learned some of the wisdom behind some of the guidelines for the challenge. I spent this Sunday’s afternoon preparing and planning for the meals of the coming week which has done more for me than just thinking about what I’m going to eat. I lost probably 4-5 nutrition points last week from last second choices or convincing that came about only because I had no other plan in action.

Lesson 2) Procrastination will cost you. I lost a well earned 6 points last week because I fell into the habit of waiting til the 2-2:30pm range to record my scores. Well sure enough one day something came up and I missed the window for recording scores for the previous day. Needless to say this is now something I do first thing in the morning. I have also found that my reflection is a little more specific to the day in reference waiting til 2-3pm on the next day would delude my reflection for the previous day.

Head to Head burpee battle at this past Saturday’s Team WOD class!

These are just a couple of the lessons I have learned from just the first week. Though I may have made them specific the ramification for these realizations are obviously far more reaching than just the aforementioned examples. I am so happy to not only be participating in an event that forces me to examine my behavior but also doing it along side the best community of individuals I have ever encountered – my fellow coaches and you Volts and Vixens!

Don’t forget that Week Two’s Winner receives 2 weeks of eliteEATS!


Post to comments any lessons you have learned in this first week put them out there. You should be well practiced after writing 7 140 word reflections last week 😉
