It’s been a while since I raised the question, “How is your nutrition?” Just read a great article that questions the government forces that be that declare the way to beat obesity is to burn more calories than you take in. They’ve been tooting this horn for a long time and obesity continues to surge. The real reason? Hardly a surprise: Sugar, Refined Grains, Starches. Curt this crap from your nutrition plan and you’re going to make more gains towards a healthier lifestyle than running 3 miles to burn off a Caramilk bar. Full article.

Well, I didn’t get the photo I wanted, so the one below will have to do. Ladies, I’m sorry I couldn’t find one where Spenser is wearing a shirt. This leads to Announcement #4 (I wrote that bold bit with a loud, echoing voice in mind. Read it again.) Did you know that one of Rocky Point CrossFit’s very own athletes, Spencer Lee is a Yoga Instructor? Spenser will be running an hour long Yoga class on Sunday’s at Noon, right after the 11AM WOD. The fee? Nothing! Zero! Your money is no good here. You need only be a Rocky Point member in good standing to attend. Never try Yoga? This is your chance!
