For improved nutrition- GET SOME SLEEP!

As we are continually understanding more about what, how much and when to eat. We also should recognize deeper issues in the quest for overall fitness.  Michaela and I are appreciating any deep sleep we can get nowadays.  Taking turns to feed baby Lauren Maeve is the first step toward regaining our balance.  We strive to have enough energy to WOD and to not disrupt the balance of hormones that control appetite.  From curbing inflammation, improving memory, and maintaing healthy weight through - proper sleep leads to a myriad of health improvements.

I invite all CSV CrossFitters to journey with us to explore deeper factors to help in the quest for optimal fitness. Targeting proper sleeping habits is a great place to start.  We understand the day to day struggles as we endeavor to find balance in wakefulness and sleep.  Here are a few links that will help set us on the right track.

Now get some good sleep tonight for a better tomorrow!
