Tomorrow is the start of our 30 day Paleo Challenge. If you’re still on the fence at this point, I suggest you jump down off the fence and start Paleo with everyone starting the challenge tomorrow. It is not just CF Bolling doing a Paleo challenge; there are hundreds of CrossFit affiliates across the country starting Paleo challenges tomorrow, including CF Alexandria.
Before we kick off tomorrow, I want to state something. Some of you doing this challenge will not lose a ton of weight. But you will see your body composition change pretty dramatically. This is not a fad diet that is built to have you shed water weight and make you feel better about your progress. This is a diet that if you buy into it completely will fundamentally alter the way you look at food and what it does to your body. I know personally I feel better, I sleep better, and my CrossFit performances have taken huge leaps since I have been on the Paleo diet. Since I started doing Paleo 4 months ago I have taken a minute off my Fran time. I know the Paleo diet is not solely responsible for that, I credit Casey and Rudy's programming as well but I do not think it would have made that big of a jump if not for the Paleo Diet.
So tomorrow is the big day, I hope that you have enjoyed the blog so far. Mac and I have worked hard on getting a lot of information out quickly so everyone can jump on the Paleo bandwagon 4 January. Yuki will be bringing her scale tomorrow so everyone can have a solid starting point.
P.S. We are not doing before and after pictures for the challenge, but I encourage everyone participating to take a picture of themselves (men: shorts no shirt. women: shorts, sports bra) tomorrow so you can have a before and after picture. This is something I wish I would have done.
