i know that ‘sugar-free’ July is well n truly over, but the photos from our New Zealand pals on how they celebrated the end of that particular challenge NEVER fail to amuse (and indeed, inspire).
how’s that for a Papanui WOD shuffle – see, CrossFit can be fun!
until next time,
a brief discussion over a sushi dinner last night, and the next ‘cut-the-gloss’ challenge has been ‘cooked’ up: prep for the 5k run will start as of Monday. it’ll be a mix of training sessions – resistance training, flexibility, boxing, muay Thai, skipping…..s’how i roll baby……
we’ll do a promo vid to kick it all off……i gotta drop some muscle weight and body fat and change from a sprinter physique to a leaner longer distance runner….now THIS is a challenge. and if i can do the sugar……epahhhhhh…..i can do ANYTHING!!!!

until next time
due to unforeseen circumstances the how-to exercise demos have to be postponed for a bit. but good news, #sugarfree july ended on a high note. i made up for lost time by having a bit of a sugar overload…a sachet with coffee (americano), some chocolate….and d’you know what, i am slightly underwhelmed. it just didn’t taste as good as i last remembered. so i can safely say, that i shall be staying off – or at the very least cutting down on the amount of sugar that i consume. it is amazing what the taste buds get used to; i feel mine have been de-toxed, and they feel the better for it. and murphy’s law: now that i can eat what i want, i don’t really want to. mind over matter.

i urge anyone who has an addiction to sugar to give this challenge a go. it is not going to be easy – the first few days anyway, especially if like me you are going cold turkey straight away. and if i can do it……ANYONE can!
i have just been informed that these beauties/must-haves are retailing at 600€…..yikes! even so, they’d be a fabulous addition to my soon-to-start exercise tutorials that shall be appearing as of next week on the Shinobi Academy You Tube channel! boom!
