Also, if you guys are looking to go into this holiday season with a plan and some self control regarding diet and exercise, Cassie (my wife, for those who haven't met her) is currently getting a new cycle of people started for her program, 30 Days A Habit. A little bit more about what she does in her own words:

Thirty Days A Habit is all about meaningful goal-setting. It provides you with an opportunity to challenge your discipline and accountability with the support necessary to help you thrive. In the process, you’ll work to develop better nutritional and lifestyle habits as they relate to your own individual journey towards improved health, happiness, strength, performance, and body composition. Whether you’re looking for support with fat loss, mental toughness, stress reduction, mass gain, or just an overall lifestyle/attitude adjustment, this program is for you.

  • Two 45-min, 1-on-1 Sessions (one at the start of the program, one thirty-ish days later)

A bit about Cassie, in her own words:

I have spent the past six years on a continuous path of conscious reinvention. Several times now I have reinvented my body composition, physical fitness, relationships with food, definition of ‘sustainable’, addictions, and career. I have endlessly experimented with what it means to eat “clean” and be “fit” and have found that a holistic, performance-based approach to health and wellness resonates most deeply with me. As an entrepreneur, lawyer, and health professional, I’ve spent my career working with people and organizations - from municipal governments to high school athletes to professional sports leagues - to help them optimize their performance. My sport and fitness journey began in 2008 (literally - I had never played a sport) when I started training for my first triathlon. After a brief stint in endurance sports that included 17 triathlons, 6 half marathons and the 2011 Boston Marathon, I hung up my running shoes, choosing to focus on CrossFit and more recently, powerlifting.
