3 Simple Strategies to Avoid “Decision Fatigue”

3 Simple Strategies to Avoid “Decision Fatigue”
Guest post by Janice Torres I was at my wits' end. I had just enough room to plant my forearms on my desk between two teetering piles of folders, a long-cold cup of coffee, and ringing phone.

Success Stories: Jordy Milstein
Written by BITE Coach Jordy Milstein I am not a natural athlete. Athletics have never come easy to me, and although I played sports as a child, nothing really stuck and I was always "the fat kid".

6 Tips to Supercharge your Next Competition Workout (or any workout)
Written by BITE Coach Jordy Milstein and featuring BITE Nutrition members and coaches rocking the Crossfit Open 17.1 In the grand scheme of things, the Crossfit Open is only five workouts out of the whole year.

Written by BITE Coach Catharine Adams "Should I do the Open???" I had a conversation about this yesterday with a 1:1 coaching client (whom I adore). She's got all kinds of major events going on in her life, one after the other. It's made her commitment to training and nutrition a little lower on the priority scale than usual. She wasn't sure if she should participate in the Crossfit Open - her ...

Planning for Success in 5 Easy Steps
Written by BITE Coach Jordy Milstein We’ve all heard the phrase -- “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, and I’m sure we’ve all thought it’s a little unfair. Just because you don’t plan your day or week ahead of time doesn’t mean that you can’t still be successful. But remember last week when you didn’t prep lunches for work, and you were left eating cheese sandwiches and salads with too muc...
