August 17th-30th Nutrition Challenge!

I challenge you to change your life for 2 weeks. This challenge will begin with paleo treats BBQ. (see sign party announcement below). This will be a points based challenge. 70 possible points. If you are already doing a paleo challenge you can jump onto this one as well! There will be a Paleo gym potluck on Thursday, August 30th, from 7-8pm to end the challenge and cheer on our athletes going to the moxie throw down!

Nutrition Points: (28 points possible) (42 negative points possible)
-1: Cheat Item. Includes any item that is not paleo or dairy. Maximum negative points in a day is 3. But don’t cheat.
0: Paleo Meal that includes Dairy. If you eat dairy you do not get your daily 2 paleo points, but you do not get any negative points either.
+2: Day of paleo. Butter and whey protein are acceptable. Cannot have any cheats during the day to earn 2 points.

Workout Points: (14 points Possible) (14 negative points possible)
+1 Workout every day. There will be workouts to do on days you cannot make it to the gym as well as at least 10 minutes of active stretching for recovery days (you can also attend the mobility class as a recovery day or do a scaled version of the workout of the day to recover, make sure you let me know it is a recovery wod to help you modify it).
-1 On days that you do not workout or do active stretching.

Bonus Points: (28 points possible)
+1 for working on your goat every day in addition to your daily workout. (must spend at least 5 minutes on your goat)
+7 for completing the weekly challenges.

August 17th Sign Party & August 18th BBQ at Folsom lake, Granite Beach on the 18th!

Friday August 17th there will be a sign party from 7-8pm at the gym to make signs for the athletes going to moxie as well as to promote the paleo treats bake sale on Saturday the 18th at Folsom lake. The Bake Sale will raise funds to help our athletes competing in moxie to pay for travel arrangements and entry fee. Get out your paleo cookbooks! Come on the 17th for the awesome sign party. Come to Folsom lake on the 18th from 12-4pm with your family! There will be a WOD for the kids!

Post to Comments: What is the hardest thing to try and purchase that is “paleo.” What do you buy for nutrition challenges that you wouldn’t normally buy?

  1. • I found one Bacon from Whole Foods that does not have sugar!
    • I found some All I Oli Garlic Spread as a mayonaise substitute. Ingredients: Sunflower oil, garlic, lemon juice, salt… Does anyone know if sunflower oil is paleo?
    • Not sure on this one: Wholegrain (doesn’t sound like it is going to work) Mustard. Ingredients: Vinegar, Mustard Seed, Water, Sea Salt, Peppercorn, Allspice, Chillies. Thoughts?

  2. A good bread recipe is:
    4tbsp almond meal
    1 egg
    Pinch of salt
    1/2tsp baking powder
    2tbsp olive oil or melted butter

    Mix in microwaveable container and microwave 1/2-2 minutes

    Can add cinnamon or any other spice to make a “muffin”
    Make in a smaller container to keep it thick
