Friends looking for a challenge for the next 30 days should check out The Wall Cycling Studio (on Facebook) and @thewallcycling on Instagram to follow the #30DayWallChallenge !! My friend Cat is an instructor there (definitely go check out her classes if you live in the Philly area!)and I always love a new challenge so I’m going to follow along as closely as I can. More info can be found by connecting with their social media accounts but essentially you want to eliminate 3 foods or habits. Plus focus on eating more greens, drinking more water, decreasing salt, and choosing healthier condiments and eliminating ones with added sugars. Of course, it also recommended to exercise regularly (spinning 2-3x/week, strength training, yoga, and running). By participating on social media you can help keep yourself accountable!
My 3 things I’m going to work on eliminating is:
1. Negative thinking
2. Drinks with dinner/happy hour
3. Non-natural electrolyte replacements during training (GU gels, Gatorade, etc.)
Just to elaborate on my goals… First of all negative thoughts can apply to all aspects of life: having a bad workout and being hard on myself, work, issues with friends, etc. I want to start looking at the more optimistic side of things and spread more positive energy. Putting happiness and good vibes out in the world usually comes back to you. Second one… I am not a big drinker but I’ve been known to indulge in the occasional wine or beer with dinner and hit up a happy hour, so while I drink an insane amount of water I would prefer avoiding booze during the week (even if it’s just 1 drink). Lastly… when I do 2-3 hour workouts my body needs fuel and I usually resort to gels for convenience. I’m investigating using more healthy options to refuel and trying to eliminate these not so great ingredients gels with something a little more natural.
Do you want to participate?? Make sure you connect with The Wall on social media and if you are local check out some awesome spinning classes!
