These strip sirloins from TJ’s are the bees knees. Treat yourself to a quality grass fed steak this weekend. Remember one of your main goals is to keep the proportion of omega 6 to omega 3 at a 1:1 or 2:1. Great sources of omega 3 are grass fed meats, wild caught fish, SFH fish oil supplement, omega 3 eggs from TJ’s. This is essential to reducing inflammation. Click here to read about inflammation. This should help you stay motivated. – WW

44 DAYS UNTIL THE NUTRITION CHALLENGE IS OVER!!!
September 3rd – Labor Day: Race to the Top of Mount Baldy. 7 mile trail run from 6,000′-10,000′ elevation. I’m registering for this race. I’d be stoked if anyone would like to join me from CrownTown.
September 8th: Tunnel to Tower Run in Corona. This 5k Run is a patriotic event acknowledging the sacrifices of firefighters, peace officers and our nation’s military service members in the name of Firefighter Stephen Siller who died saving others on 9/11. The proceeds will help build “Smart Homes” which are designed for our severely wounded veterans and also help to send care packages to our troops. Michelle P. is spearheading this event with interested participants to form a team of CrownTown’ers running together.
October 12th: Fitness Wave will be here Friday evening for the follow-up dunk. This date marks the end of the challenge. If you know you can’t make this date, please click on the link and schedule your follow up dunk directly with Fitness Wave ahead of time, as close to this date as possible.
