I feel incredibly nerdy about this whole post, but here we go. Have you seen the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. the World? I don’t love the movie, and I’m not a big Michael Cera fan or anything. It was on, I was on the couch, I watched it. There was one part (scene?) in particular that stuck with me. Basically, one of the characters is a vegan, and as a result has superpowers. He’s tricked into consuming dairy. Moments later the vegan police show up to take his vegan-powers. Sometimes I think about this as I’m drinking a beer/eating ice cream/having a real burger, bun and all.
Consistently following a paleo nutrition plan (or whatever clean, close approximation works for you) can be pretty cool from a performance perspective. It helps us recover faster, and actually makes workouts seem easier. One less than perfect food choice doesn’t change all that though. Remain calm. The paleo police won’t take your CrossFit superpowers! Just like every day of training, simply try to do a little bit better next time. We might not feel great, and a hangover (actual, sugar, or gluten) will make putting up PRs more difficult, but we can get right back on track with our next decision.
So as I sit hear typing this, in the midst of spending a weekend celebrating my brother’s wedding with family, eating and feeling less than 100%, I’m not concerned about my training for next week, and I’m certainly not worried about Robb Wolf kicking down my door to take my muscle-ups away.
