Special times today for the workouts.  Our operating hours will be from 7-9am.  We've got a special event cooked up for the end of Rx+ week.  Actually, it is 4 events.  We encourage you to to make it to as many of these workouts as possible.  In total it should only last around 2 hours.

GPPeeps are to assemble into 2 teams.  Each team member will grab a weight 20/25 and stack it into a designated chalk circle.  Team is to move entire pile of weights 200m + to the stop sign at 1200 South where you will stack weights.  The entire team is to leave the pile of weights behind and sprint 400m together.  The end of the sprint will put you back at your pile of weights.  Team is to take entire pile back to the gym.  

Rules:

- No team member is to make any progression towards end goal of task while holding a weight.  The weight may move; YOU may not.  
- Workout is over once all weights are stacked neatly in their respective places in the gym.

Had to post this from Friday's comments section.  There were a lot of cool comments there.  If you don't regularly read them, you'll want to take a peek at them today.  Amazing words of great wisdom and inspiration.  Wish I could post them all.  -N


It's Just One Day

Every year my extended family goes to Bear Lake for the day and when we are finished we get shakes. This year our trip occurred during Rx+week. My husband asked if I was going to get a shake. I said no. He replied, "Oh come on now. It's just one day." I passed.

I have been thinking about that statement, "It's just one day," and how just one day is holding me back from reaching my ideal health goals.

I started thinking about all the birthdays, holidays, annual traditions etc., that find me using the excuse, "It's just one day" to justify poor eating choices. So I wrote them down. In my little family of five divine souls, there are 42 "just one days." Start adding the annual vacation, camping trip and extended family functions and that's a whole lot of just one days that usually spill over into one or more days with leftovers.

So anyway with the self-evaluation I have been doing this week, I decided to use "It's just one day" as my mantra. I can choose to pass on the birthday cake, the shake, the smore's, the second serving, the whatever....because after all,

"It's Just One Day."
