It's Whole Life Wednesday and this week's lifestyle challenge is to reduce our alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a pervasive cultural vice and one that many of us can easily over consume. I just read this very interesting blog post from Precision Nutrition on drinking and it's impact on health, fitness and performance. I was (well, perhaps I wasn't really) surprised to see how easily I can go from a moderate to heavy drinker. I certainly feel the deleterious affects of heavy drinking, my wedding ring doesn't fit well, my pants are harder to button, and CrossFit workouts are so. much. harder.
Our challenge this week is to reduce our alcohol consumption to ONE DRINK on nights when we won't CrossFit the next day. For example, if you regularly attend class on Mon, Wed and Fri - you only get one drink on Mon, Wed, Fri, and Sat. That's 4 drinks per week, which according to the folks at Precision Nutrition is moderate consumption. SERIOUSLY! Good luck! Let me know in the comments how you think drinking affects your fitness.
