The Day Paleo Started at CrossFit Scottsdale….

 

Congratulations to the 41 student who have decided to challenge themselves to eating Paleo style for the next 6 weeks! 

Today was another successful challenge day at CrossFit Scottsdale.  I am always inspired by people wanting to change their lives for the better.  You have taken on the hardest part of this and I can’t wait to see the results.  If any of you work as hard at your planning, prepping and eating Paleo as you did at “Cindy”  today, you will all be incredibly successful.

A special thanks goes out to Carl of Sunfare who  gave us a great deal with food samples and a special Paleo menu,  Dr. Cristina Romero-Bosch for providing excellent advice and giving us our starting body fat % and lean muscle mass.  Thank you to Erin, Sara R., Skip, Coach Katie and Coach Brian for helping with pictures, measurements and questions.  Thanks to Hallie for video taping and taking pictures of the event. We couldn’t have done this without you.

For those of you who still want to get in on the Paleo action, makeups need to be completed by Wed April 14th in order to participate.  Email me if you haven’t already to schedule it.

Tips to prepare you for success for the Spring Paleo Challenge

The time is here.  Spring Paleo Challenge starts Saturday for everyone participating, whether you are in the gym on Saturday or not. The Paleo Challenge WOD is at 9am or 10am and measurements will begin at 11:30am.  Be there on time for each (burpee law applies).

Your biggest tool for success is getting yourself prepared.  Here are tips to clean, stock and prep your way to success!  Remember Ashley’s post: “Failing to plan is planning to fail”.  No failing allowed!

1. CLEAN OUT YOUR KITCHEN!- If its not there you won’t eat it.  Give your kitchen a makeover and get rid of all the junk in the house and everything that will cost you points.  No dairy, grains, legumes (peanuts too), sugar, alcohol, etc.  Donate it or throw it away- it will cost you more in the long run.  Your family will only hate you and refuse to eat for a short amount of time.  Trust me they will not starve.  If its not there, they won’t eat it (at least at the house) either and you know they could benefit from Paleo too.

2. STOCK YOUR KITCHEN WITH REAL FOOD! – See the Paleo Shopping List at the gym (this will be emailed to the participants on Saturday).  Get your snacks, meat, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds ready to go.

3. PREPARE YOUR FOOD SO IT IS QUICK AND EASY! – Wash it, cut it, chop it, bake it, boil it, grill it and bag it as soon as you get home from the store (you won’t do it later-trust me).  Chop you veggies and fruit into portions you will eat and bag them or put them into small containers that you can just grab out of the fridge.  Portion out your meat for what you will use that week and either put it into the fridge or cook it right then.  Freeze the rest but put it into meal size portions before you do so (especially if you buy in bulk) so that you can defrost a meal or two at a time.  Make your dressings for your salads. This way you won’t grab the processed stuff because of time.  Bake your paleo muffins, or pancakes for quick and easy breakfasts.  Boil some eggs for the week as well.  If you do the prep it will be less work during the week and you will have no excuse for losing points.

Paleo Challege Reminders:  Be sure to post to comments after daily posts (the WOD or any post) on the website and on the Facebook fan page www.facebook.com/CrossFitScottsdaleyour daily successes, meal ideas, questions and most importantly pictures of your food!
