Hey Guys! The paleo challenge is winding down with 1.5 weeks to go!!  I want you guys to stay focused and charge through until the end.  This means that we’d like you to keep up your journaling, double check your points, and get in some sports, mobility, and skills!

POINTS!  By this Saturday, I want everyone to see how many points they have accumulated.  The maximum points accumulated from 1/19 until this saturday 2/23 is 400 points(80 points a week). This includes perfect meals, and all weekly bonus points.  If you feel like you are WAY off and you shouldn’t be, double check your points!!   If you feel like you are WAY off because you should be, get some extra credit in this last week by doing extra skills, mobility, and play a sport with friends!  You can also get 20 extra bonus points for releasing a video testimonial of your experience.    Be on the lookout for more info about end of challenge details!!

End of Challenge Calendar!!

February 23: Olive Leaf outing at 5pm! Taste the many flavors of olive oils and vinegars!

February 27/28 4:30pm-8pm: Measurement Benchmarks with IB. There will be an online registration, TBA when it’s up and running.  These are the time frames to sign up. Do not wait until the 26th to tell me you can’t make it on the 27th or 28th.  If Cara performed your measurements, I’ll send an email to everyone to let you know where to go from there.

February 29: “Jackie” post benchmark WOD.  Sign up for Class this day!!! If a class you need is full, waitlist it.  If you can’t come anytime on Friday, then come to any open gym and complete it on your own time.  CrossFit total is TBA  but will take place the following week post challenge.

March 1: At 11:59pm the paleo challenge is officially over!!

March 3: Cooking seminar with Damian! 5pm!!  You get to Eat food and Watch Damian cook!!!

March 8 at 5pm: Your Journal needs to be complete, testimonial video uploaded (20 bonus points), WOD and  MEASUREMENT benchmarks must be updated in your journal,  your Points Tallied on the results page of your journal.

The Testimonial video needs to include the following:

  • Thoughts going in to the challenge
  • Lifestyle struggles? Are you student, parent, work
  • how you prepared their kitchens before the challenge
  • How you adapted to the struggles
  • Results

On A Side note, keep your testimonials as positive as possible.  Hard working CrossFitters are sometimes disappointed in small achievements, wishing for bigger ones.  If you lost 5 inches in your body, but lost no weight, thrive off the success from losing the inches! Don’t you think inches are more important than pounds!!    Maybe you only lost 30 seconds off “Jackie” but wished for a whole minute.  Let’s keep it positive!

March 10 at 5pm: Final Paleo Meeting @ HCF!!  The winning team will be determined this evening! Your attendance is important! I expect nearly all participants to attend!!  The cash prize is $750 for that team to share!
