Wait–you didn't know I CrossFit? Ha.
I've never felt this way about exercise, so even I'm surprised by how much I love CrossFit. That said, things are about to get even better. Last week marked 5 months at RNCF and today is day one of the 60 day paleo challenge. I've spent weeks thinking about today and even planned my LA trip around the challenge. As you may know, I love a challenge.
Each participant is placed on one of two teams and each team has a lead coach. I love all the coaches at RNCF but ended up with the one who would have been my first choice. While I mostly follow a paleo diet, this is strict paleo for 60 days. I will be doing lots of paleo cooking and plan on posting updates over the next two months. Really excited to start using my new paleo e-book, and I'll be finding recipes on my favorite paleo blogs, too.

And of course, the place that changed my life: RNCF
You will hear this from almost anyone who does CrossFit, but the sense of community is unlike anything I've ever experienced. I don't know what I did before I knew these people. It is something that I need to do every single day. Not because I have to, but because I just feel so much better when I go.
I wonder what it feels like to know you inspired someone to change the way they eat, work out, and how they view their health. There is one person in my life who has done that for me, and I love her so, so much. Thank you again, Gina.
So here we are. Day 1. I am so excited! It's on.
