This email is coming to you from my camp site up in the North Cascades mountains :-). Well, actually I wrote this yesterday because I’m sure that I don’t have internet where I am right now.
Here’s what I found fun, interesting, or noteworthy this week.
My latest podcast –
AAJ 259: Jason Ackerman on Fasting and Life
Jason Ackerman of Own Your Eating participated in the 5 day fast that we did a few weeks back, and we get into what he thought of the experience (and if he’ll do it again…)
Jason is a CrossFit seminar staff member, and if you’ve watched any of those CrossFit Games videos… you’ve probably seen him judging the top athletes.
He’s also owned and sold a few CrossFit gyms, and is currently working with Dave Lipson at ThundrBro.
Meal of the week –
Wild caught coho salmon baked in grass fed butter and sea salt
Banza chick pea pasta with goat cheese and pepper
We’ve been working on a meal planning page for the Get Better Project so I thought I’d share this great meal from our week of eating. 🙂
What I’m testing –
I’m a big fan of CBD oil for sleep and relaxation, so when Penguin asked if I’d like to try their great tasting CBD oil… I said… of course!
So far, I’ve noticed being very relaxed a few hours after taking their CBD and the citrus taste is very nice.
Thought I’ve been pondering –
Have you thought about how you recharge your batteries? I’m talking about your body batteries, and what makes you feel full of energy.
Generally, most people talk about being introverted and recharging batteries by being alone, or extroverted and recharging your batteries by being social and around others.
But I think you can pin point this in a much deeper (more specific) way.
When I lived in NYC, even if I was alone in my apartment my batteries didn’t get charged. I needed to get out away from others and the energy of the city. Otherwise it ate me up.
So, I’ve figured out that I recharge the best when I’m away from people and in nature. And preferably near a lake (or body of water). Once this happens my energy increases, my creativity activates, and I’m able to handle way more stress.
My challenge for you is to think about what fills you up and makes you feel energized. And it’s possible to have multiple ways this can happen for you.
Knowing this… you can quickly escape to this environment when you start to feel overwhelmed or stressed.
That’s what I have for you this week. I hope you have an amazing weekend, and let me know if you need anything.
