Food! Preparation is the key…

Happy new year everyone! Hope you had a great Christmas holiday and have had a good start to the new year!

preparation
noun
noun: preparation
1.
the action or process of preparing or being prepared for use or consideration.
“the preparation of a draft contract”
2.
a substance that is specially made up, especially a medicine or food.
“there are several effective preparations you can buy over the counter”

So Sunday I finally did what I have been thinking about for a while and actually prepared my food for the week (with the help of my lovely wife)!

Two and a half hours, three options, and twelve full meals later I have food for the next four days!

Foodprep

1. Mexican free-range chicken, spicy black beans, roasted cauliflower and brocolli and mexican rice

2. Mixed protein and brown pasta, free-range chicken and lean bacon, mixed peppers, plum tomatoes and pine nuts

3. Chili Salmon with stir-fried vegetables

All this came to around £40. So £3.30 per meal (plus that was our dinner on the day).

It was a bit of an experiment but the plan is to do this once a week!

Now I just need to get my training back on track…

CrossFit: the benefits far outweigh the negatives…

As CrossFit training gets bigger and more popular this side of the pond, people will be ready to question the principles and intensity of the training.

People do get injured, people do push themselves too hard and people do things they probably aren’t ready to do – but that goes for just about every sport out there! Walk in to any gym in the UK and you will see  people training badly, even dangerously!

Thinking about trying CrossFit or have been CrossFitting for a while? Chris Spealler, a very experienced CrossFit coach and athlete, put out a nice blog post about this recently. Made me think a bit too!
