We are 1/2 way through the paleo challenge!
Take a second to reflect on the last 3 weeks: Why did you sign up for this challenge? Some of you want to lose weight, stop taking medication, increase athletic performance and more. I want you to write your goal down on a piece of paper and post it to your bathroom mirror, the dashboard in your car, and on your desk at work. Remind yourself why you are doing the challenge. For some, this will continue to keep you on the path to success. For others, this will help prevent you from indulging in a non-paleo experience.
The time is now!
This might only speak to a few folks, but dodging non-paleo foods during this paleo challenge is your chance to see REAL change through your whole body. When is the next time you’re going to try 100% paleo? The next challenge, perhaps? What happens when a friend wants to share a beer or your emotions are wacko for sweets in the future? Now is the TIME! Your body is finally starting to feel good! Don’t throw a wrench in it! No matter what you are going through, stay true to the challenge and stay in the running for $750 grand prize.
