Joylyn, one of many Verve athletes that competed at the Mountain Sectionals.

Today is the last day of the Paleo Challenge.  Over the next few days, we need to get new measurements, snap a new picture, and turn in a complete food log for the four week challenge.  We are excited to see what changes you've experienced – both physically and mentally.  

We find that many people not only experience positive changes in their appearance, but also experience change in their eating and cooking habits.  These challenges are simply stepping stones to getting you to make better choices on a daily basis.  This is our opportunity to convince you that eating meat, veggies, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch, and no sugar or substitutes is not the worst thing in the world.  Rather, eating these foods for a period of four weeks makes your body perform more efficiently and your mind think more clearly.  

So don't let the end of the Paleo Challenge stop you from eating a Paleolithic Diet.  Instead, let's keep this train a rolling and learn how to fuel our bodies even better.  Let's learn how to constantly vary our meals by breaking away from our treasure chest of safety meals… let's make something extravagant.  Keep it Paleo and send us a picture and recipe. 

Check out Paleo Steve's blog for ideas.

    Just wanted to say thank for all the work put in for the sectionals, just awesome. Great WOD’s (heavy deads would’ve helped me though 🙂
    But seriously good programming and a sweet event. Truly sorted out the fittest while making it where everyone could workout, that can be a tough combo, you did it. Nice work, thanks!
