Paleo

What is the 21-Day Superhero Challenge? Other than having an amazing name, this challenge is about "becoming the BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF" as Emily Schromm, founder and local Denver CrossFit coach puts it....

The biggest change and challenge from moving to the Paleo style of eating is being prepared and having foods ready to eat. There is some food preparation required and forethought when you go to the grocery store, but it all became much easier for our household once we nailed down the staple foods that make 65% of our diet. Grocery trips are faster (and cheaper) and sticking to the Paleo plan is pretty thoughtless once you find your groove.

Find your staples and you will find success in daily healthy eating!

It hasn't been a secret that I've been struggling to find my personal identity when I removed the "bike racer" from 25 hours of my week. Combine that with a new state of residence and a month old job, I have felt pretty disconnected from who I believe I am. Over the past week I started researching (again) about Paleo eating to address some stomach problems I've been having. Naturally when I was training a lot my eating habits were 90% of what is outlined in a strict paleo diet. The 10% was left in greek yogurt for smoothies and thin whole wheat bread with almond butter & jelly. Without knowing that I was looking at the Paleo diet my girlfriend emailed me Friday morning to see if I would sign up for the "Whole Life Challenge" with her. Initially I was very resistant. You want me to pay $49 to track my eating and body weight? After some reading and taking a "pride check" that my biggest goal for this challenge would be for Emily to meet her goals. I wasn't too good for this, and by submersion into better eating as a family we will have the best results.
