January 2013 Paleo Challenge

Rules for the January  Paleo Challenge

First of all I want to say good job for choosing a healthier way of eating. I want this to be as successful as you do. We need to set goals that are attainable and sustainable. So….

#1 set a goal for yourself as to where you want to be at the end of thirty days.  I want an e-mail, with your goal.

We are going to set weekly parameters, if you complete the weekly challenge your name will go into a drawing and you will receive a prize.

Week One: Women need to drink 84 oz of water per day. Men need to drink 104 oz of water per day. (we had talked about fluids, but this first week I want water)

All 30 Days: Keep a food journal, how else will I help you if I don’t know what you are eating; your food journal must be turned into me every Saturday via e-mail or at the gym. You can use an online diary if you choose, or you can just write it down on paper.

Weekly WOD: Each Monday you need to be at CrossFit to participate in the WOD, we will be tracking your progress here.
