For the ring rows, Rx will be starting with your body parallel to the floor, Rx+ will be starting with your body below parallel, and scale is starting anywhere above parallel.

Community Notes: Week 1 of the Paleo challenge is in the books. Congratulations! How has every one been feeling? What’s been the hardest part? Any surprises? If you’ve been feeling low on energy, or you have any questions, now’s a good time to ask. Three weeks to go!

  1. OK, I’ll start 🙂 I’ve been eating “mostly” paleo for about 2 years now, so I thought going strict paleo for the month would be easy. But it’s been hard! I’ve been craving cheese, chocolate, icecream, etc this week. Last night was REALLY bad. Now that I think about it, I realize that I’ve been getting away from a strict paleo diet little by little over the last 6 months. Not that I’d eat entire meals that were not paleo, but I started incorporating more little splurges. For instance, I ate cheese almost on a daily basis – either on my eggs, mixed in with ground beef, or as a snack on its own. And I’d eat some chocolate here and there. And this summer we probably had icecream once a week. And every so often if I was at a wedding or some special event, I’d splurge and have cake or cookies. Since I never ate an entirely “un-paleo” meal, I thought transitioning to strict paleo for a month would be pretty easy. But I was wrong!

    I find that when I’m craving something sweet, a small glass of wine or some frozen grapes really help diminish the craving. But it doesn’t go away entirely. I’m determined to make it through the next 3 weeks without slipping up. It doesn’t help that my mom made me one of her delicious eggplant parm casseroles, and it’s sitting in my freezer waiting to be eaten…

    1. i’ve been getting away from being more strict too. i wrote down what i was eating all week and when i went back and looked, it was amazing how much those little things here and there add up.

  2. i’ll go:

    this week was a failure for me.

    in general, i eat pretty cleanly within the sustainable realm, but it takes planning. and i should have known and prepared for the challenge.

    though i didn’t keep completely paleo this past week, i did manage some positive changes. like nikki, i had some “food creep” over the past three months, and some of that creep was having negative affects on my health. so this week i:

    – went five days without dairy and stopped waking up congested in the morning. (had dairy over the weekend, got congested)
    – ate french fries once, instead of multiple times during the week (i had myself convinced potatoes are paleo!)
    – didn’t rely on processed meat (deli, bacon) for a large majority of my intake
    – drank less wine

    what killed me once i hit the weekend was something i should have anticipated: lack of planning. my husband does not eat paleo and so, in between running around all weekend, i found myself facing less than ideal choices that i could have changed had i prepared a bit more.

    (an aside, i am going to try and make the 5pm class tonight, but might not make it, so i won’t register on mind/body…)

    1. I like your term “food creep” — that’s exactly what happened to me!
