Paleo Challenge

How do you know when you've been successful w/ a Paleo Challenge?  Is it by how clean you've eaten? (Good breakfast example, although the bacon us far too under cooked :-))  If you've eaten clean and exercised, you should see and feel some results, right?  Especially if you were dirty before starting the challenge.  Hilary suggested a while back that we call this a "Look better (almost) naked challenge".  I think it's a good idea.  Pics are taken before and after, submitted for voting by everyone.  Okay, not everyone...the ladies can judge the ladies and the men can judge the men.  The winners will be those who leaned out the most between their before and after photos.  Obviously this is subjective, and will not be a perfect method for evaluation, so if it's close, we'll (the owners) be the tie breaker.  If you're uncomfortable taking and submitting a pic (almost) naked, then submit yourself wearing somewhat tight fitting clothes.  Ideally you wear the same outfit before & after.  

I'll announce the prizes for the winners shortly!!

Also, let me know what suggestions you have for making this fun, educational and all inclusive.

Today's WOD:

5 Push Press (95/65)
20 Wall Balls (20/14)
10 Burpees

3 Rounds, rest 2 mins, then 2 more Rounds

Rx for Push presses was 135/95
and wall balls were 20/16!

We need a nutrition seminar or something to teach people how BE Paleo or suggest books to read, websites to visit, podcasts to listen to, etc.

I just asked Lynne is she wanted to do the Paleo Challenge? She said F$#! No!!!!!!

Jason said...

Why is Lynne sooo opposed to the Paleo Challenge? Just curious...

Unknown said...

Can you outline the details of the Challenge a little bit more? Start date? End date? When we summit our "almost" naked photos, who are we sending them to? Is the challenege just to eat paleo? Do we have to log it and prove it? Just a few more details so that I can continue to debate with myself whether or not I would liek to particpate or not would be helpful... thanks

Jason said...

For sure, I'll have all of those details posted tomorrow night.

Lynne said...

Lynne is not opposed to a challenge...but she is opposed to missing out on her coffeemate and other items like wine, cheese, beer...etc. :)
