2.14.13 – Day 30…ish

14 Feb

Day 30…but we’re not done yet!


Happy Valentines Day lovers! Hold off on that chocolate just yet. The Challenge will officially end tomorrow – after dinner. You need to post your meals all the way through tomorrow. Then you can have your little cheat meal. Note, I SAID LITTLE!

I hope you are all feeling awesome. As you’ve seen, Paleo is not easy to start, but once you get in the groove of things it gets easier and you feel a hell of a lot better! I want you all to take note on how you perform during the next few days. Notice how your WODs feel when you are eating clean as compared to after a cheat meal. My guess is you’re going to feel like you’re wearing a weighted vest during your cheat meal WOD…that’s how I usually feel anyways.

I don’t expect everyone to stay 100% Paleo for the rest of eternity, but for a lot of us this is more than just a Challenge, it is a lifestyle change. Now Josh and I are not perfect Paleo practitioners by any means, but we do stick to Paleo about 90% of the time…especially during training season. I hope the bulk of you remember what you learned during the Challenge and can find a way to make it work with your lifestyle!

A few of you have already talked to me about measurements. If you can’t make it Thursday or Friday I will do your measurements on Monday.

Winners of the Challenge will be announced next Wednesday!

E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G must be submitted by Sunday at 12pm.

If you have talked to me about doing measurements Monday you may submit those on Monday without any penalty. Everything else must be submitted by Sunday 12pm.

  • PHOTOS – email your AFTER photos to brittany.recklesscrossfit@gmail.com by SUNDAY 12pm – FRONT VIEW, SIDE VIEW, BACK VIEW. Try to wear the same thing you wore for your BEFORE photo. Again, the photos won’t be disclosed without given permission. These are worth 20 points.
  • GOAL – did you hit it? Did you miss it? I want to know! If you hit your goal, did you surpass it? If you missed your goal, what happened? Be specific!
  • MEASUREMENTS – you should have all kept your before measurements in a safe place. I will be at the gym taking AFTER measurements tonight at 5pm & tomorrow all night. These need to be emailed to brittany.recklesscrossfit@gmail.com by SUNDAY at 12pm.
  • WOD – Thursday/Friday/Saturday (depending on when you can make it in) you will be repeating one of the Benchmark WODs from the beginning of the Challenge. If you were there on 1.16.13 you will be repeating this WOD:  20 min AMRAP – 4 Pull Ups, 8 Push Ups, 12 KBS, 16 Air Squats. If you weren’t there on the 16th, but were there on 1.17.13 you will be repeating this WOD: 8 Rounds for Time – 8 Box Jumps, 100m Row, 10 Abmat Sit Ups, 8 Back Squats.
  • Rachel will be coaching solo tonight during the 6 & 8pm classes. If you are doing your benchmark wod during one of these classes, do mobility as normal, the strength with the class, then please take it upon yourself to get set up and get to work on the wod. Please don’t disrupt the class – you should be able to do the wod the same time everyone else starts tomorrow’s wod. You can do the AFTER wod on Friday during classes, or on Saturday during Open Gym too.
  • There will be separate postings for the GOAL & WOD. Post results to those once they are up.
  • Email me your PHOTOS & MEASUREMENTS.

You have until 12:00 on 2/15/13 post your results for today. 

Post to comments:

  • Detailed food log for Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack, Dinner
  • If you WODded out at Reckless and your results if you’d like.
  • If you got 7+ hours of sleep last night
  • If you sign up for the CrossFit Open you get 5 bonus points
