• I have been doing Crossfit for a while, but I still struggle with a lot of movements... So, my three goals for this year are to get toes-to-bar, be able to kick up into a handstand, and to successfully string together 10 double unders.
  • i run a couple times a week in addition to Crossfit. For me, the other big factor is my eating. I was Crossfitting a lot and lost a little bit of weight. Then I went Paleo... and that kicked my weight loss into high gear.
  •, and are my faves!
  • I also use Circuit Training.
  • Hit me up! My diary is open.
  • Love this! I agree that Rich Froning is a total freak of nature... in an amazing and bad-*kitten* way.
  • I second this. If you want to change yourself and change your life, you've got to open your mind and be willing to do things you haven't done before. Doing the same old thing is going to get you the same old results.
  • Aside from using it for cooking and baking, I also put it in my coffee with a splash of real vanilla extract. : )
  • It happens to the best of us! Last week I ate a couple handfuls of Cool Ranch Doritos... I couldn't help myself! But I shook it off, and started fresh the next morning. Remember, tomorrow is a brand new day!
  • Today was: (15 minute cap) Run 1 Mile then AMRAP of Squat Snatch (135/95) and Box Jumps I ran the mile in 10:05, which was a PR for me! Then I had to use only the bar for the squat snatch, because I'm terrible at those.
  • That is one of the harder ones I've seen! I would have definitely barfed and wanted to cry!! Way to go on finishing and not giving up!
  • I'm trying to work on my running, but I struggle when they put the running in WOD's. Running is still pretty hard for me, so the running wears me out and it makes it harder to complete the other lifts and moves. Today's WOD is run one mile, followed by an AMRAP of Box Jumps and Hang squat snatch... all with a 15 minute…
  • Some people swear by Bulletproof Coffee as a great way to get in more fat. Avocado is also a great way to add more fat to any meal. I know the carb flu is rough, but it will pass! Groggy, dizziness, nagging headaches... your body is detoxing from all the grains, sugars, and processed junk. The carb flu just showed me how…
  • I felt and looked sick during the first couple weeks of going Primal/Paleo. I was so tired... I couldn't even muster the energy to go for a light jog. I recently fell into a trap with fruit, dark chocolate and paleo "goodies", and I think my sugar intake was way too high. I'm not doing a 21 Day Sugar Detox, and I'm only…
  • That's awesome! what great results!
  • I PR'd my OHS by 25lbs. today!
  • I lost weight eating bacon, steak, and butter... BAM! : )
  • 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 -Wall Balls 20/14 -Burpees -KB Swings 55/35 I finished in 13:10.

  • Well, I feel that I've had a lot of success with Paleo. I followed the diet strictly for the first month, and now I'm around 80/20 Paleo. I lost 10lbs. in my first two weeks and lost another five after that. I am now at my goal weight and have stayed there for ten months. The book that helped me get stated Was the 21-Day…
  • I usually wear capris of some type and a tank or t-shirt, depending on how hot it is outside.
  • Unfortunately, Steve's is only available online.
  • Hang in there! I had a terrible time the first week. I was completely exhausted and had a nagging headache the whole time. They call it the "carb flu". Your body is just withdrawing from all the refined carbs, sugars and processed stuff. Once the first week of so is over, you'll feel better than ever!
  • Great article!
  • Depending on your budget, you can also check out Steve's Original Paleo Goods. He sells dressings, ketchup, and BBQ sauce... all paleo. It's good for the lazy, but it's a little pricey. You can also find some paleo-friendly dressings at Whole Foods, like Tessemae's or Cindy's Kitchen. Read the labels, though. Not all of…
  • Do you make your own dressings and whatnot? There are a lot of good recipes out there! I make my own Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing, Avo-ziki sauce (it's like a Greek tatziki sauce), BBQ sauce, etc. I usually pack my own dressings in little bottles if I go out to eat, which helps a lot. It takes a little bit of preparation…
  • I started out as Primal and then moved into Paleo a little more gradually. I found Primal easier to adjust to because it allows for some dairy, dark chocolate, red wine, etc. Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint 21 Day Total Body Transformation was a book that was full of good info on how to get started. It was still a big…
  • Cucumber is probably my number one! I also love green beans, carrots, tomatoes, avocados, celery, and many others! I've been eating a lot of cauliflower lately, too. It's so versatile!
  • I had the ame experience as you. I started Crossfit first, and dropped a couple pounds... but not many. I did see my body change and tone up, though. About five months later, I started Paleo and lost almost 20lbs. very quickly. So, from my experience, diet was more important to weight loss. Now, I don't pay too much…
  • It is SOOOO good. I make it at least twice a week!
  • Two Rounds, 20 minute cap: 300m Run 15 Power Cleans 15 Toes to Bar 300m Run 15 Front Squat 15 KB Swings I finished just under the 20 minute cap!
