Meal planning tip
Overwhelmed by options and don’t know what to cook?
Keep a favorite meal binder.
Print out or photocopy your favorite recipes and put them into plastic sheet covers in your binder. Use tabs to create organization. This binder is a great way to simplify decision-making when it comes to making healthy and delicious meals.
Also, bookmark our TSCF Foodie Friday blog. I have been posting recipes every Friday for over three years! That's a lot of recipes. I repeat my favorites, but you could cook your way through my #foodiefriday blog and make so many yummy things:
Of course, I have a recipe for you this week. Please click on the image below to enjoy Chicken Burrito Bowls courtesy of Nutrition Rx'd, or check out this video on how to make them. Happy eating!
Need some lunch inspiration? These chicken burrito bowls are so easy to prepare on the weekend and to take as lunch to work. Packed with protein and fibre, they will help you avoid the midday energy crash. They also freeze well so you have some healthy, easy dinners on hand. Experiment with some extra veggies and toppings.
I have written several times about the importance of competition. I've heard it said that competition develops character. I completely disagree. Competition reveals character.
You often hear us Coaches talk about the difference between training, practicing and competing. In class, everyday, you are training and practicing. This means you're scaling complexity, managing load and volume for a specific stimulus, and working on mechanics and consistency.
Training and practicing are what make you better, more efficient, and ultimately faster, stronger and more fit. If you're competing in class by comparing your times/score to others you are missing a HUGE opportunity to work on your own fitness. If you are competing in class you are letting your ego get the better of you. Your ego is not what's going to make you faster, stronger and more fit. Your ego only cares about right now. It doesn't care about the progressions, the process, the mechanics, or the consistency. But, you need the progressions, the process, the mechanics, and the consistency to get faster, stronger and more fit.
The time for being competitive is when you're in an actual competition like the Row'd Royalty or The Open. Competition reveals our character, our grit, our fortitude. Competition is the culmination of months of training and practicing. And, competition season is upon us.
Row'd Royalty starts TOMORROW and we want you to officially sign up for it. Let's have some fun together!
