Today we honor one final heroine, Amanda. Amanda was named after the 2009 CrossFit Games competitor, Amanda Miller. In 2009, and known by her pistol tattoos on her hips, Miller moved on to the Games after finishing 6th in the Mid Atlantic Regional. She placed 55th overall that year. Unfortunately, one month later she soon crossed more challenges as she faced a battle with recurring melanoma. She passed away on April 23, 2010 at the young age of 24.
Our Whole Life Challenge Weekly Lifestyle Challenge this week is to take 7 days off from drinking.
The instructions are simple:
"It seems like alcohol is everywhere we go — an accepted part of our social lives, an easy way to relax, an expected part of after-hours conduct. As a culture, we drink (and we enjoy it).
Going booze free for a week may seem like cakewalk (or it may be a great personal challenge). Regardless, you’ll get the chance to see the effects that abstaining has on your emotions, your physical performance, your body composition, and your sleep quality — perhaps giving you some insight into how you’ll approach drinking in the future.
Good luck! Please let me know how it’s going in our secret Facebook group. I'm excited to hear about your experiences with this week’s healthy lifestyle practice!
