The Holding of Horses

By Marcus | In Nutrition | on March 20, 2013

Xuan pushing prowler

In a short five days, the first month of our nutrition challenge will be in our rear view. At the same time, many of you are about to wrap up your Whole30 and really, really ought to go re-read my post about what to do next. Hopefully, you don’t have the day marked off as an unofficial holiday and don’t plan to do the complete opposite of what you have done right for the last 30 days. However, if you were planning on a binge cheat day to end all cheat days, I’m here to advise you to hold those horses!

Look, I know for some of you the adjusting of poor nutritional thinking may be tougher than for others. There may be years of bad habits to work against and that is a large part of the reason behind a 90 day challenge, instead of a 30 day sprint. The goal for this Nutritional Challenge is to make these better habits a part of your daily life, rather than a temporary shift. This doesn’t mean you’ll never eat again! It just means that you’ll be aware of what it does to you, how it makes you look, feel and perform and can make a conscious decision whether or not it’s worth it.

    Are you trying to insinuate something picturing me for this post on poor nutritional thinking Marcus?! ha ha ha ha

    I think Marcus’s math is as bad as Ruth’s. Even if you don’t count today, which I probably would since this was posted at 6 AM, we have 6 more days after today until we complete the first 30 days of the challenge. Tuesday, March 26th is the 30th day.

    That’s a prowler sled that Xuan is holding, not a horse.

      Ahh, we have lots of armchair comedians today!

      @Xuan — guilty conscience much? :)
      @Scott — before throwing stones at my math, you may want to re-read the post. I said 5 days until the first month is up. For clarification, we dunked on February 25th, and in 5 more days it will be March 25th. Standard convention is that would be deemed “a month later”.
      @Mike — you didn’t see the Clydesdale team attached to the other end of the prowler.

    Marcus, when did we start doing things by standard convention? This is Marcus convention! You only mention 30 days three times in the post. When did the Whole30 have anything to do with a “standard month”? I’ll let you slide this time. But next time, BURPEES!!!
