Honestly, I thought I’d be writing a lot more about How to Eat, but this week has shown me how exhaustingly busy I make myself. Ideas for blog posts get pushed to the back-burner and I feel I’m constantly short on time while overwhelmed with material and things to do. But none of that really has much to do with the How to Eat Challenge, or how Week 2 went…
Right before the world shutdown and everything closed, I was fortunate enough to visit a library and picked up a small stack of books which piqued my interest. Most of these books were about writing or the creative process, and through the shelter-in-place period in April and May, I read most of these books. They were mostly inspiring and definitely pertinent to my writing life.
In case you are not up to speed with what is happening this month over here in ZooFit HQ, we are conducting an experiment to discover how our behaviors around eating affect our health and well-being. I believe it’s not just what you eat, but how you eat that can impact our fitness.
When I created Fandom Fitness within the ZooFit program, it was mainly a combination of my passion for all things geeky and nerdy and as enrichment, a way to make fitness more fun and engaging.
As our country slowly (and hopefully not prematurely) opens, this ZooFit tip may seem a little late to the party. Eating Green during the Apocalypse? Wasn’t that, like, last month? Restaurants are preparing to invite guests back, but there are many people who still find themselves eating at home. They have been thrust in a quest they never thought they would embark on. Cooking. At home.
In Michael Pollan’s book Food Rules, he mentions that how we eat has as much bearing on our health and well-being as what we eat. So many diets out there focus 100% on what to eat. But not as many focus on the how.
Monday is Memorial Day. It’s a day to celebrate and honor our heroes by firing up the grill and eating burgers until we burst. But Monday is also, well, Monday. Which, for ZooFit and many other households, means it’s Meatless Monday. This might be a bit of a dilemma for those who want to eat green. We want to eat healthier for ourselves and more sustainable for the planet. Meatless Mondays makes it easy to remember to do our part of eating just a little less meat. But Memorial Day is definitely a grilling holiday.
Welcome to another Zoo-notable- caring for our planet and our animals by taking better care of ourselves. This time I’ll be tackling the wonderful book The Pursuit of Perfect by Tal Ben-Shahar.
I love making themed workouts. Almost as much as I adore doing themed workouts. Last month, I started coaching online Zoom workouts for my old CrossFit box, South Island CrossFit during the coronavirus shutdown. And I decided if I’m going to lead workouts, I might as well have some fun. So I implemented Fandom Fitness Fridays. And today, my first and probably most dear to my heart fandom- The Legend of King Arthur.
