Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Have you ever found yourself being busy yet not productive? In a day and age where too many people are over inundated due to having too much information and too many options, we are afraid to just do the work!

LESSONS:

Instead of thinking you need to “get ready” for something, why not just get started!
Organization is crucial for success
Cook your lunch and dinner for the week ahead by cooking in quantity and organizing the refrigerator
Organize the week ahead on Sunday night.
Don’t react to things in the moment. Instead, block out your schedule so you are disciplined with the work you need to get done

We can only store and attend to so many things at any given time. Our mental energy actually has a limit. Because of this we need to be intentional on where we invest our mental energy and take inventory on what is occupying space in our mind. If we are more curious and intentional around where we are investing mental energy, we can adjust time spent so that very little time gets wasted. A simple exercise of evaluating your seven most filled areas can aid in getting you to where you truly want to be.

LESSONS:
Your mental energy is limited to being intentional with where you spend it can help create a more engaging life and leave you feeling more productive.
Try this simple activity to get your mental energy aligned with your intentions:
Make a pie chart and write down the 7 areas that take up most of the space in your head on a daily basis.
Identify what percentage each area takes up. For example, family may take up 10%, while work takes up 40%, and training 15%, and so on.
Ask yourself: Is this where I want it to be?
Finish with: What changes can I make to get it where I want to be?

We tend to all be able to appreciate what ‘leaving something better than you found it’ means in a physical sense. Picking up after yourself, picking up trash off the ground, leaving the surroundings a little nicer than when you arrived.

Now, the mark of really appreciating this is how you apply this to relationships, feelings, and some of the less observable, measurable imports in life/community.

And the great stretch exercise is how you apply it to yourself each and every day.


LESSONS:
Do one thing in every situation to leave your physical environment just a little better than when you arrive
Do one thing in every situation to leave a stranger or friend just a little better off than you found them
Don’t forget about yourself - one thing each and every day to improve you
It doesn’t matter how small or trivial, sometimes the most trite can have the greatest impetus for growth

Allium vegetables – like onions, garlic, leeks and shallots – have a host of health benefits, including possible reductions in the rates of some cancers. Two of the most commonly used of these veggies – onions and garlic – are also the most pungent; sometimes too pungent.

But despite some drawbacks, they are minor compared to the variety of health benefits that these veggies can bring.

WHAT WE TALK ABOUT

Let’s start with garlic.

This vegetable has been a part of great, tasty dishes for hundreds of years. It’s also been used as a home remedy for colds with some recent studies suggesting that people taking garlic supplements have a reduced rate of catching colds compared to people who didn’t.

And there are some even more serious conditions that garlic can help with. It’s been shown to reduce both blood pressure and total cholesterol. And for people with diabetes, garlic supplements over a few months have reduced their fasting blood glucose levels. All pretty impressive.

Next, let’s move to onions that have their own particular benefits.

Like apples, onions contain a flavonoid that’s a great antioxidant: quercetin. This flavonoid can contribute to reductions in atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease! And although quercetin is available in other foods, it’s absorbed much faster into the bloodstream if it’s consumed through onions! Another way that onions help against cardiovascular-related problems is that they can inhibit or reduce platelet aggregation, which can lead to blood clots.

One thing that people don’t like about onions is what happens when you cut them for cooking – your eyes start to tear up. While you’re cutting through an onion, organosulfur compounds are created. These may be part of the process contributing to tearing up, but they also have anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic properties that are very beneficial. (And don’t peel too much of the onion – most of the best stuff is in the outer layers.)

Two things to remember about onions that may encourage you to eat them more: cooked onions can be sweet, without the lachrymose edge (this is the sulfur based compound that makes us tear up). Also, if you put your onions in the fridge an hour before you cut them, the onions release less of the gas that irritates the eyes.

Onions and garlic might be unusually dramatic in the way they can take over a room with their odors and gases released through cooking. But with the right approaches, they not only add zest to your meals, but they also add truly healthy ingredients to your body’s daily food intake. Despite the smell, give these valuable veggies a try!

Have you ever talked yourself out of an opportunity for no reason at all? Excuses for no reason at all? Self sabotaging yourself before you’ve even put your feet on the floor is a great recipe for frustration and never getting out of your own way.


LESSONS:

If you’re nervous about doing something, perhaps this means this is an opportunity you SHOULD take
Are you answering the knocks on the door? Those thundering knocks are opportunity, waiting for you to answer the door and say YES!
Discomfort and nervous energy will go away once you start experiencing the benefits of facing the very things you are afraid of.

Insecurities are just obstacles. Painful, yes. Unfortunate, indeed. Debilitating? Don’t have to be.
An insecurity doesn’t have to be a barrier to the things that you want but if you don’t use the right tools and focus on overcoming your insecurities they can absolutely become 10 foot walls that are difficult to get over. It’s important to be active in challenging your insecurities through various actions that can work to eventually overcome them.

LESSONS:
We all have insecurities but we need to be intentional around how we address and work through them so that they don’t become barriers to the things that we want in life.
Try the following tactics to help you overcome your insecurities:
Say THANK YOU. Don’t provide disclaimers or discount the positive feedback someone sends your way. Say THANK YOU and receive.
Challenge your insecurities with positive affirmations. Integrate positive affirmations or uplifting mantras to help challenge what’s bringing you down.
Focus first on the good things. Try to look at what went well first so that your insecurities don’t have a head start.
Shift perspective on your experience. Try to use a different lens to help you move away from always noticing the insecurity or letting that lead the way.

I understand the value of a resume and what it’s intended for.

But, we all know the resume game and some of us even have a professional writer “polish” it up. So what is the real value? Also, a resume is simply a collection of yesterday’s events.

With a resume mindset about life we become static and superficial. Let others keep record of your accomplishments and use that saved energy to keep doing new and exciting things. Otherwise, we tend to default to doing the same things over and over. I prefer a growth mindset.

 

 

LESSONS:
Stop living your resume, start living today

Imagine you’re in a supermarket and you want something healthy to drink, but you want something tasty, too. Many people might think – and with some good reason – that a naturally flavored drink like grape juice or orange juice would provide a beverage that’s refreshing and good for you.

But with the choices available to consumers in most supermarkets, they would be wrong. Why?

 

There are two assumptions many people make about their choices at the market based on labeling. 1) That a “natural” choice is always a healthy choice and 2) that the guidelines and advice given on food labels are straightforward and relatively transparent. They aren’t necessarily right.

If you’re concerned about eating healthy but you’re not sure how best to do it, get in the habit of reading food labels … and you need to know how to read them, too. (check part 1 for more info.)

If you wanted orange juice as a healthy way to quench your thirst, there are some reasons to opt for water instead. Why is that? Too much sugar is bad for you and processed foods are full of them. But some foods that advertise as “natural” foods are, too. A typical 8-ounce glass of pure orange juice can have around 21 grams of sugar, which is more than half the 36 grams recommended for men and only 25 grams for women. You may have read the packaging to be doubly sure and noticed that nothing was added to the juice. That made it look like it was “healthy” and “natural” which in moderation it can be but there’s almost an entire daily dose of sugar for women in a single 8 ounce glass.

You have to know how to read your food labels to avoid fooling yourself

There are plenty of other ways that food labels can undercount, deflect or underemphasize the potential unhealthy ingredients or components that go into food and food products. Here are some tips to avoid some unhealthy traps:

Nutrition information is based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Your particular healthy calorie intake may vary significantly.

Fats can also sneak into food labels in some interesting ways.
Looking out for artificial fats (like trans-fats) and added sugars is only part of the healthy reading you need to do. If you’re eating things that don’t list a lot of beneficial nutrients (like iron, fiber, and vitamins) you might be consuming a lot of empty calories.
Beware of sneaky trans-fats. If the label says “0 grams of trans fat” but also lists “partially hydrogenated oil,” that means there is less than .5 grams of trans fat – not a lot, but it’s there.

In today’s confusing food environment, you need to be educated to stay healthy. One of the best ways to do that is to learn about food labels.

 

KEY TERMS & IDEAS:

Nutrition information on food labels is based on a 2,000 calorie diet. When you’re assessing the information on food labels, remember to take into account the daily calorie intake that is healthy for your body’s needs, which may be more or less than 2,000.

Just because something is “natural” does not mean that it is automatically good for you. Fruit juices, for instance, are full of sugar and drinking a lot of juice could raise your sugar intake to very unhealthy levels.

Trans fats. “There are two broad types of trans fats found in foods: naturally-occurring and artificial trans fats. Naturally-occurring trans fats are produced in the gut of some animals and foods made from these animals (e.g., milk and meat products) may contain small quantities of these fats. Artificial trans fats (or trans fatty acids) are created in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make them more solid.
The primary dietary source for trans fats in processed food is “partially hydrogenated oils." Look for them on the ingredient list on food packages. In November 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils are no longer Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) in human food.”

Do you know your worth or do you let others determine your value? Sometimes you need to say no in the short term so you can yes to something bigger in the long term. In a world where so much is free or discounted, don’t feel like you need to do what everyone else is doing.


LESSONS:

Don’t let labels determine what you do and who you become.
True Spartans are ready & willing to turn obstacles into opportunities
Decide what you want to achieve and take action towards achieving those goals.
Say NO to the small opportunities and labels that are holding you back!

We are human. We are fallible. And sometimes that means that lies slip from our tongue.
We all do it or have done it but it’s important to understand how pervasive lying can impact you. In the beginning lying may make you uncomfortable but the more that you lie, the more your brain accommodates to this discomfort and soon enough it’s not uncomfortable anymore. This is when it starts to get tricky because when lying becomes habitual and you lie more often, you begin to move into dangerous territory of passively telling yourself that you’re not good enough and the only good enough version is the fabricated one. It’s important to ask yourself how lying serves you and in what ways it moves you further away from your authentic self.

LESSONS:
Your brain will acclimate to the discomfort of lying the more that you lie and eventually become used to it.
Ask yourself the following questions to help you understand your own reasons behind lying:
Where do you lie?
Why do you lie?
How is it serving you?

His early life was so “perfect” Nick Green says he was too afraid to take risks or to fail. He was lucky, a business concept found him during college and forced him to learn resilience and the value of failure. Once he overcame that fear, the world of possibilities opened up to him! Now he is building a mission driven business ThriveMarket.com. What does it take to thrive in life? A good place to start is your nutrition. Nick has devised a way to make healthy organic food accessible & affordable. He failed his way to success and shares his gems of advice about leaning into fear, the struggles of the unknown and the triumph of getting help people either through education or healthy food with Joe De Sena in this episode.

 

LESSONS

“Unlearning” can be a key to success

Be careful of the unintended consequences when you try to create a culture of ‘show up early’.
When we communicate correctly our set of standards that are consistent with our expectations we create opportunities for the behavior we desire.
I don’t really want you to show up early, I want you to show up prepared. The reason I tell you to show up early is because I’m tired of you not being prepared. But I don’t communicate that properly. What gets lost in translation and the behavior we begin to reward is - just show up on time and then we can all waste each other’s time by figuring out how best to get ready.
 
 
LESSONS:
Communicate what you expect
Don’t assume being prepared is ever implied unless you train to that standard
Be a professional, use your time to prepare to give your Team what they deserve: Your Best.

Spartans, here’s a riddle for you: What do lengthy financial reports and food labels have in common? Answer? To some, they might seem a bit boring and overly detailed, but they’re both really important. In this podcast, you’ll learn about some of the key ways to read a food label so you can quickly zero-in on the most relevant information impacting your health
If you only had access to one piece of information in a food label, what would it be? That would be “serving size.” Food companies know that many consumers are calorie-conscious, so one way to minimize the caloric “profile,” if you will, of their products is to describe calories per portion and not per package.

Be careful to check the serving size. It might be less than you imagine. Just look at the sample portion sizes most nutritionists show their patients … they’re much smaller than what Americans typically eat.
Knowing this, check the calories per serving. If a package contains “four servings” and you eat the whole package, that’s 4 times the number of calories (and sugars, and carbs, etc etc) than is listed on the package. That’s a lot!

Luckily, there is more information to be gleaned from food labels and packaging. A lot of it is in shorthand, so you should know exactly what they mean.

First, there are different ways to designate a food as having fewer calories than one might normally encounter or expect. In descending order, they are:

“Reduced.” This means that the product has at least 25% fewer calories (or a specified nutrient) than the ordinary product.
“Low calorie” is used to designate 40 calories or less per serving
“Calorie free” means having less than 5 calories per serving

… there also the related terms “fat free” or “sugar free,” which mean ½ gram of sugar or fat in a serving

For “low cholesterol,” you’ll find 20 milligrams or less of saturated fat per serving
“Low sodium” has 140 mg or less of sodium
“High in” designates an item having 20% or more of the “Daily Value” of a certain nutrient or vitamin per serving
… and in between the “highs” and “lows,” you’ll find the term “Good source of,” which means the product provides at least 10-19% of the “Daily Value” of a certain nutrient or vitamin per serving

There’s a lot of details to remember – too many, it seems, to bother looking at when you’re rushing home from the supermarket to feed your kids, complete chores, pay bills, head for a workout for instance. Instead, pick a quiet moment or two at home when you’re not in a hurry and do some light reading. Choose a few items like cereal, granola bars, or a treat like ice cream and flip through the food labels you see. Read carefully and you’ll learn what to look for when you’re making important choices for your health.

Are you in it for the long game? The long haul? Many Spartans have spoken about the patience and the undaunting work ethic and determination it takes to get a taste of success let alone get to the top. Our fearless leader Joe DeSena recently made an Instagram Story on this. Gary Vaynerchuk says this on the regular, and of course, ask any Spartan Racer if they out of the blue started winning races. NO. You gotta be it in for the long game if you want to get to the top.

As they say, Every overnight success story has a 10 year history (at least)!


LESSONS:

Did you know Rodney Dangerfield got involved with comedy as a young kid but he did not start building momentum until his late 40s! That’s 30+ years of struggling and never giving up!
To stay motivated, it’s important to look at short term goals such as this week, this month and this year. But also, look at the BIG picture, the 3, 5 and next 10 years.
Be ready to pivot your course of action, but don’t quit!

Often, we take on a lot. More than we should maybe. We say YES to things we only feel lukewarm about and we nod our heads to things we would rather shake them to. The thing is, if we are saying YES to everything then it’s difficult to really tease apart what matters to us and we can end up being resentful of our own inability to set firm boundaries. Sometimes we have to set a firm NO so that we can have even firmer YESES down the road. When you set a firm NO, when you pass on something that you know in your heart isn’t right for you, you make yourself available to other things down the road that you feel strongly IS right for you.

LESSONS:
Setting a firm NO makes you more available to better YESES down the road.
Ask yourself: What am I saying YES to that I really need to be saying NO to?
Remember, saying NO to someone is not a personal attack. It is an exercise in setting boundaries and giving yourself permission to be firm.

“Don’t talk about it, Be about it.” ~Even-Esh

“Let your actions speak so loudly, that I cannot hear your words.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Zach Even-Esh talks about how this manifests in a coaching environment with his athletes in the gym.

I like to use it not only to drive me forward with action, but to also help manage my expectations of others. It’s so often we are told one thing or another by someone who could either be trying to ‘sell’ you, has low or distorted self-awareness, is confused or no idea, etc. If we always put full stock in their words we are likely to be much less satisfied with any results.

Proof is in the effort of action. When someone tries to convince you they intend to do something or be something, nod and then observe. It’s the actions taking place (or that are absent) that will measure the true authenticity.

LESSONS:
Look for activity that you would expect to see if intent were pure
Train yourself with a do not say attitude
When someone is always telling you about what they are going to do, it’s more likely that it never will. Otherwise, it’d already be happening.

The Bataan Memorial Death March is, as they say more than just a marathon… it ‘honors the thousands of heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health, and, in many cases, their very lives.’ Joe, Colonel Nye, Sefra Alexandra, Erica Walker, Marion Abrams and Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Frank Grippe embarked on a sojourn to honor the men that exhibited true grit to their bone marrow. The 26.2 mile ruck through the White Sands Missile Range brought with it sweat, crippling dehydration, pain so excruciating it caused dry retching… yet in comparison to what these veterans had been through (as told by Death March Survivor Dan Crowley on Spartan UP! Podcast Episode 229) this was just a walk in the park. Walking alongside OEW, thousands of men women and children- our frame of reference was once again shifted. What the body can endure is extraordinary and the experience of rucking through the gorgeous yucca-clad landscape with beans on head, smiles on face and laughter in the belly- once again proved that friendships are only made stronger when you get comfortable being uncomfortable.

 

Lessons:

· Colonel Nye dehydrates faster than a camel drinking saltwater
· Joe needs a backpack sponsor
· Erica Walker needed a walker at the airport
· Marion secretly ran more than all of us with more weight
· Frank Grippe needs to buy a scale
· Sefra should get sponsored by Goya
· The men that survived and died in this march should never be forgotten

If you haven’t experienced performance anxiety yourself then most likely you know someone who has. Performance anxiety is common and its intensity can span across the spectrum. Although dealing with performance anxiety can sometimes feel like a hopeless feat, there are actually some pretty effective strategies that can help you learn to manage the worry you feel in the face of public performance.

First, remembering that the individuals around you - whether out in the crowd or on the race course - are just people; people who have struggles, who live and breath just like you. They are just humans! So being afraid of them or their judgments won’t serve you and certainly won’t serve your performance. Second, remember the preparation that it took for you to participate in whatever event you’ve got on the table. Use a mantra that can help you call up your level of preparation and remind yourself that you’ve got this! And lastly, predict your success in the future through using a visualization. When we visualize and use mindful practices to envision our success, we are more likely to behave the way we feel - which is more confident!

LESSONS:
Performance anxiety is a common struggle that you can experience in different arenas and with varying levels of intensity.
Using strategies to help you push through performance anxiety will serve you in learning to manage the worry you experience.
These three concrete tools (the three Ps) can be used to help you reduce your anxiety:
Remember that your audience or peers are PEOPLE just like you!
Call up your PREPARATION and use a mantra to remind yourself that you are more put together than you feel.
PREDICT your success in the future through visualization and mindful practices. Envision yourself with a win!
