The holidays are upon us and we’ve got goals to meet. October can be a very challenging time with Halloween candy everywhere… Luckily we’ve got some helpful tips to keep us on track for the month of October, courtesy of the lovely Vanessa Stolarski, the Founder of Fork Lift Fitness + Nutrition.
Here’s what the expert, Vanessa, has to say for October:
Eat the candy. Then move on…
This Halloween, when faced with store shelves
of candy, this is your time to practice mindful
eating. Don't obsess over what you can’t have,
just enjoy, but PARS through your experience
while eating it:
1. Plan. Decide your favorite. Research nutrition
facts. Determine how much you can eat guilt-free.
2. Assess. Sometimes what we imagine as satisfying, ends up being anti-climactic. Tune into which is true for you.
3. Remember. Many of us have nostalgia tied to certain candies. As you eat your favorite, think about those memories with joy.
4. Savor. Slow down & enjoy the taste, texture, sweetness & smell.

Come to our performance nutrition clinic hosted by ForkLiftFit on October 12th at 11AM. This is a fantastic opportunity to hone in on your performance and nutrition before the OPEN as well as 351’s regular WODs. Knowing how and what to fuel your body with each day is important and good nutrition is the biggest part of fitness. What you put in your body will determine how your body will respond during a workout. This is the key to helping you maintain a healthy weight, reduce any risk of potential diseases, and to help promote your overall well-being!
We get so many questions on how to eat to perform and stay in either that maintenance stage or even that weightloss stage… How does one do this? There is absolutely no one-size fits all approach to this which is why it’s so important to chat with an expert on how to tackle this. Come and check it out on Saturday, October 12th at 11AM!
