Every year I do the same thing, buy tons of seeds, way more than I can plant, start some plants indoors, and then plan my garden.

I really should do it the other way around, less waste and more time doing something else – but I don’t.

Next year!!

This is a handy graphic however it obviously needs to be tailored to your growing zone I usually count back from the last frost date (which is a guess at best) In Edmonton I use May 20th just to be sure; some even use June 1.

What does the 21 Day Challenge and Cross Fit have in common?

It’s what I’m going to attempt to do. WOD = burpees done the right way, learn how to do them right the first time. 10 minutes or 20 minutes a day I’ll do a new workout to the best of my ability.

The 21-Day Challenge In 30 Seconds

This is the Challenge. Do it for just 21 days and the results will speak for themselves.

  1. Eat real food.
  2. Avoid sugar, grains, unhealthy fats, beans/legumes.
  3. Align your carb intake with your weight goals and activity levels. <this is a biggie!! If you’re just sitting around the fire pit with a fully stocked larder – quit eating so much!
  4. Move frequently at a slow pace: Get between 2-5 hours per week of moderate aerobic exercise.
  5. Lift heavy things: Conduct 1-3 brief, intense sessions of full-body functional movements.
  6. Sprint: Go “all out” once a week.
  7. Get 8 hours of sleep every night.
  8. Get 15 minutes of direct sun exposure each day.
  9. Play! Find time to let go, disconnect, unwind and have fun each day.

Used pre-workout or just to start your day. Make room for a new type of massage. It kinds of hurts when you do it so be gentle at first and just roll with it!

donutsIf you’re like me, you want to eat less carb-laden snacks. Yeah, I know you like them!! All those cakes, pies, sandwiches on fresh bread, don’t deny it, but every so often you should take a look at some low-carb options. They are more filling in the long run and depending on what they are, better for you. Remember fat is filling and is your friend …so onward. more…
