  • Sara

    Rest Day Dinner is at 8pm at punch on broadway between 20tg and 21st. I’ll only be able to stay for a little bit as I’m competing in the hybrid competition tomorrow with mike mishik but I’ll be there to make sure we get a table.

  • Carlos

    There’s no 5:30, because it’s a rest day, right? So “TODAY’S SCHEDULE” above is incorrect, right?

  • Jenn

    Pull-ups: 476+10=486
    WOD: 11

    Paleo: Day 15 – weighed myself this morning and lost another 1.5 lbs this week. Went to a Brazilian Steakhouse for dinner last night – it’s amazing how much more meat you can eat without all the fillers of bread and appetizers, etc. Was sad when I had to pass on the fried plantains though. And i still crave gummy bears every day. Half-way through the challenge!

  • Sara

    There IS a 5:30 class today… Sorry about the schedule on MindBody, I accidentally cancelled that forgetting it’s a Friday.

  • Carlos

    Thanks for the answer Sara!

  • Just a random food note. I have been buying Mara Natha raw unsalted almond butter but wanted to get some of the fresh ground, so went to Whole Foods last night. In the fine print it says that the grinder contains roasted almonds WHICH HAVE BEEN ROASTED IN PEANUT OIL. So, just something to keep in mind! I think the Westerly almond butter maker uses dry roasted almonds…but I will have to check.
    If nothing else, this challenge has made me hyper-aware of food additives and really changed my palate towards favoring plainer foods. I feel like I can taste more.
    Congrats on getting half way through!

  • Quick question:
    What’s the story with cane juice as a sweetener?

  • Mike K

    In my opinion, I’d put it in the same category as honey, as you can certainly chew on a raw sugar cane, but it was probably seasonally available and not regularly consumed.
    Personally I’d use it over agave nectar if you need a sweetener.

  • Chris H.

    PC 1/14/10:
    – Three egg omelette with turkey and brocolli, apple
    – Chicken/avocado salad with olive oil/vinegar dressing
    – Paleo chicken curry, orange
    – Bison burger, tomatoe sauce, spinach, small portion of steamed sweet potatoes
    – Walnuts, pear

  • Mike K

    One takeaway from the candy cigarettes link above for those who may not have read the whole thing…
    As I’m sure a lot of us will still make “paleo” versions of non-paleo foods, be aware of the potential for oxidizing the unsaturated fats in nut based flours (coconut excluded as its almost all saturated) when cooking with them. Certainly not something you want to regularly eat.

  • Thank you! I would now go on this blog every day!

  • Oh my god you’ll not belief that. My stupid cat simply farted on my ankle!? I mean what’s the matter with this!? I feed that thing and I end up with this in return. I still will not belief this. After all, you have got some important info there in your posting. I knew Google could take me to some useful stuff today :). O . k . have to search this pet now! Have a good time you all!

  • I tried preparing a statement just like this once, however I didn’t get a particularly good response. I hope your writing on this matter turns out with more success than mine did. Maintain the superb work.

  • I never in a million years would have had the idea to look at things like this. This is going to make my life a whole lot easier.

  • nice informations man, thank you a lot!

  • PS- if you do decide this is a product you want be very firm with their sales reps, they outsource sales to a call center that serves companies that do ‚Äúbuyers clubs‚Äù and will sign you up for things (for me 4 separate ‚Äúfree offers‚Äù that charged my bank account a total for 132 dollars) if you‚Äôre not careful.

  • I have today decided to find a good vendor of electronic cigarettes. A friend recommended Green Smoke According to their website this is how they described their product:

  • “Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with disposable cartridges that produce the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke’s‚Ñ¢ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. Green Smoke‚Ñ¢ products have been independently tested for safety.”

  • Keep up the great posts. I really like reading your posts. Thanks.

  • I am surprised at the items I overlooked before I read this post. Thanks for the good information.

  • I have been looking for a good supplement to help me get to sleep too. Melatonin has bad side effects. I read about Calms Forte 4 Kids. That link goes to a review. You think its as good as they say?

  • We should be chary and fussy in all the information we give. We should be extraordinarily aware in giving advice that we would not about of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to avoid giving recommendation which we don’t imitate when it damages those who woo assume us at our word.
