I'm on day 17 of a paleo challenge myself. I can feel improvements in my mental clarity, strength and energy levels. I've allowed keeping cream in my coffee and i had some cheese at a picnic yesterday afternoon, otherwise it's been totally strict. I have regular cravings for certain processed foods but they haven't been intense and go away once i eat something.

I might have left my log book at the gym last night. If anyone finds a little blue notebook, probably near the pull up bars, holler at your boy.

I think I left my pink jump rope there last night as well. You guys can play with it, but I will take it back next time I am in there.

I feel like I should commit to a DMak-style 30-day straight Starrett mobility WOD challenge (yes, yes, I know I should be doing it everyday in any case but a 30-day challenge should get me going).

Anyone want me to join me on this? To make it interesting, first one to fail pays up (something, somehow). On a honor code of course.

@ShawnS -

thank you for pointing that out! how're you feeling in your challenge?

@David -

i think both of us are going to allow dairy in our coffee - otherwise the coffee has to go, and that just seems like a recipe for a failed challenge.

i must ask, what processed foods?!

David's Vices:

Bierkraft sandwichesHAMBURGERS w/friesoccasionally pizzaBeer

and worst of all.... Diet Coke! (sweet nectar of life) I didn't have it terribly often, but man oh man can i put down a can of cancer.

I'm reasonably diligent about observing my paleo restrictions (including staying off dairy). My biggest temptation is: cookies! I crave 'em badly, especially during the afternoon lull. To make things worse, my department office has bagfuls of them lying around. I've resisted this semester but it's really hard. I also crave bagels in the mornings.

David: so is the first class on Monday at noon? Would you consider running a 8 or 9 am class?

So today's madness:Ring dips- 20, 11, 7 lovely drop off!100 burpee suckage in 12:48

Samir, I'm in on the challenge but the penalty has to be something fun yet painful.

Nice little 6PM class.

Dips: 15, 11, 7 (lookit that drop-off!)

100 Burpees in 12:25 (sucked)

Afterwards, Jess Fox shamed me into doing the DIY work of 3 rounds NFT, 10 ring rows-25 situps.

Man, I'm sore.

DMak: You're on; we'll figure out something.

Got out of work late so did some improv. All on my ride home I was wondering "where can I do dips?" I stopped by the playground by my local park and didnt see a good place, so dismayed, I rode home.

After getting home and doing a survey, I realized my stove and counter would be a perfect place to knock out some dips!


100 Burpees in about 10:37(my watch malfunctioned for a bit)This was hard after those dips--I cheated a bit by turning on the AC in my living room.

Super late post to be able to track back.

Bar dips with the white band:9, 7, 5

50 burpees for time: ~4:42-Didn't do all 100 because I had just run 4 miles.
