Today is the first post to reflect on your first day of the paleo challenge. This is a mandatory assignment for everyone participating. You can reflect on your experiences. For example, today, discuss your first day 100% paleo! In the future, did you try a new paleo recipe that turned out good? Did you have a great workout week? Did you have trouble eating on the run in the morning or quick meals in the evening? Share your thoughts!
p.s. make sure you’ve taken measurements (waist -largest area around belly button), chest, arms,and thighs), weighed yourself, and took a before picture (preferably in bathing suit or tight fitting outfit).

Weekly Challenge #1
How the weekly challenge works? The challenge is for individuals, not teams. Weekly challenges will vary week to week. The prizes will vary week to week. The weekly challenges are for fun and not mandatory. We will consider your participation, however, when we decide winners at the end of the challenge.
What is the challenge this week?! You will go shopping (you, not someone shopping for you) and find meat and vegetables. The Catch? Your entire plate will be full of food you’ve never tasted before. You must find at least 1 vegetable and 1 meat that you’ve never tasted in your mouth. By Friday night (10/7), you will have taken a picture of your meal w/ a short critique and Submit it via facebook. If you legitimately do not know how, do not have a facebook account, or do not have the technology to upload pictures, then you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your critique. Winner will be raffled.
What is the prize this week?! Bath and Body Works gift package! Good for men, too!
