Ok, so tomorrow is the big day, the start of the 2 month Paleo Challenge Crossfit Beyond Limits (best place on earth). I'm going to utilize my blog to keep track of my progress, meals, recipes, and other Paleo/Crossfit related stuff (since I haven't been doing much travel related blogging lately...my apologies!)
I'm super excited for the challenge and definitely look forward to watching myself progress through the 2 months. The diet portion of this isn't too difficult for me since I already eat (mostly) Paleo...just have to cut out the Greek Yogurts that I have been eating as part of breakfast (a matter of convenience) and reduce some fruit intake...Let the games begin :)
In preparation for the start tomorrow I spent today cooking/preparing for the week. Because I go in and do the WOD at 5am, I have almost no time to prepare/eat breakfast before leaving for work so I made a nice batch of Bacon Wrapped Eggs (I added spinach and onions to the mix)

|Bacon wrapped eggs after (ready for the week!)|

Eager to start, I already prepared some of tomorrow's breakfast...Bacon wrapped egg on top of caulimash, with my second dose of fish oil for the day (sitting on the container lid). Not sure what else I'll be bringing but there will be more! Snack is veggies and almond butter! Quick and easy!
I guess it would be appropriate to put my PR's for the lifts that I have...will be interesting to compare to the end of the challenge!
Shoulder Press (not push press): 67lbs
Back squat: 140lbs
Looking forward to beating those PR's and setting some on the other lifts!
