#85 – Move Daily — Health Over Performance | The Idea Behind a Movement

We are joined this week on the #CLP by the dynamic duo behind Move Daily, Dain Wallis (Strongman / Nutritionist) and Freyja Spence (Movement Specialist). It was a great conversation with a pair of people who are genuinely concerned with the state of health and how a proper and holistic approach can allow for a pain-free life and optimal functioning. We discuss their different paths, Dain’s as an internationally competitive Strongman and corporate desk jockey and Freyja’s as a lifelong health coach and EDS sufferer. We get deep in the woods at a few points but it is well worth it and there are some great takeaways for your life. Please Rate, Review, and Share!

Healthy Substitutions – How to Make Your Favourite Foods Work for You

We all have our favorites – things that we love eating and want to eat all the time but know that as delicious as they are they may not be supporting our bodies and promoting high performance in the way we want. We believe that you should fully own your indulgences, if the moment, and food, really mean something to you then eat it. This article is focused on the smaller things, the decisions that added up make a big difference but with a few simple switches go from hindering to helping.

Cream and Sugar -> Coconut Oil / MCT Oil / Alternative Milk

We love coffee, it starts our day, fuels our meetings, and settles down on a Sunday with us to read a book. Chances are you do as well, and unless you enjoy your coffee black chances are high that you add cream, milk, or sugar to your cup of joe. We are suggesting a switch from traditional dairy to alternative milk (almond, coconut, or macadamia being our favorites) this will help reduce inflammation associated with commercial dairy products. We also love adding coconut oil or MCT oil for a little brain boost, they also slow down the caffeine release which can help in avoiding jitters or crashing.

Traditional Potatoes -> Root Vegetables

We do believe that potatoes have gotten a bit of a bad rap of late, but it’s also their own fault for being so delicious when thinly sliced and tossed in a fryer. As much as we love a bag of salt and vinegar chips having them all the time can be a problem. Our suggestion is to give the root veggies some love, sweet potatoes, yams, turnips, beets, cauliflower, squash. In addition to being having a lower glycemic index, they contain more fiber and boost a different nutrient profile which is important for your bodies overall health. They are also delicious and in-season at your local farmers market.

This last point may come off as blasphemy, how dare you eat a burger or wrap without a bun but hear us out. Traditional buns and wraps are often highly processed and refined, making a transition to a lettuce bun or green wrap is a great way to avoid these unnecessary carbohydrates, especially if you are sticking to a Paleo-esque diet. It also means you get the full taste of the ingredients, they do not become muffled under a far too large bun.

Morning Routines | Three Steps to a More Productive and Effective Day

Lemon water .png

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. How many of us have heard someone we know walk into a room, sit down with a full body sigh, slump back and utter that statement as if the bed has a right side. They offer it up as a declaration that anything miserable they do that day isn’t their fault, after all, they woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

Maybe you’ve been that person, it can easily happen. A late night at an undesirable work event, a missed alarm clock, a stubbed toe on that cabinet you keep promising to move, spilled coffee on your shirt fumbling for your keys and you’re not far away from the wrong side of the bed.

We have the remedy, we can’t promise that you’ll never have another ‘terrible’ morning but establishing a routine will go a long way in avoiding beginning your day with misery. It acts as a primer, creating a clean slate starting point.

We have highlighted our Top 3 daily primers, these are activities that we do every single day, regardless of location or situation. If a zombie apocalypse comes we refuse to run until after our 15-minute routine. These are the things we notice to be effective, for you it may be something else and that’s fine, the modality matters less than the commitment to starting your day in a specific way and before you say you don’t have time in the morning, you don’t have time not to. The entire process takes 10 minutes tops and can drastically improve your productivity and focus throughout the day, we think it’s worthwhile making the time.

  1. Water First – This might seem like a silly start but it has been hugely beneficial, we make sure to start our day with 500 ml of water, if possible, with a squeezed lemon and a pinch of sea salt. Most of us do not drink anywhere near enough water during the day and often the first thing we put in our body is that sweet, sweet coffin – thanks Johnny T for the word. We love coffee as much as the next person but it is a diuretic and after 6-8 hours of not drinking any fluids your body is dehydrated, the last thing it needs is a substance that will compound that issue.
  1. Journal – This is a public thank you to whoever created the 5-Minute Journal. If you are not familiar with the product it is exactly that, a journal that takes 5 minutes to complete at the start of the day. Beginning the day with gratitude and planning has been HUGE in setting our days up for success, as woo-shoo as it may sound reminding yourself that life is an amazing gift every day for a few minutes creates a shift in mindset. The quiet time in the morning always you to prioritize the 2-3 things that are truly important for that day before the noise creeps in.
  1. Cold Plunge – If you are not familiar with Wim Hof, stop reading this and google his name. The man is an absolute savage when it comes to body manipulation in extreme temperatures, he holds the record for longest time in ice water. Although we have no intention of challenging him for the title, starting the morning with 30-60 seconds of frigid water is an amazing wake-up. It is also beneficial for your immune system, has been shown in some studies to potentially boost testosterone in men. Perhaps, most importantly, it presents you an opportunity to get your first win of the day under your belt, like Vince Lombardi said ‘winning is a habit”. Completing a difficult task early in the day is a great way to set yourself up for success on everything else you encounter.
