General manager and Strength Coach Shaun McCrary of Crossfit Unity threw down the gauntlet again this year! It’s the 30 day Paleo challenge take 2. I did this in January and lost 12 pounds. I gained it back and lost more but it’s been a battle. That is one of the hardest challenges I have ever taken on. The things that happened to my body, my mind, the cravings it was like a drug addict going through withdraws. The first two weeks were just crazy but I wasn’t alone.
This time around it’s different. I’m going Paleo and leaving my family out of it. I’m around temptations all the time and I should be able to resist right? Not all the time. Instead of putting a bunch of photos up I put them in a slide show. It’s just easier.
That same night my son came and sat right next to me at my desk!
I could smell that chocolate and he was driving me crazy. He thought it was funny. I didn’t think it was funny. I was trying to be strong. “You have 3 seconds to get away!” I said. He thought I was joking! Crossfit has made me stronger, faster and more agile. He should know this by now! He lost a bite of that candy bar and then some. I caved and it was good but then I felt bad because I wasn’t strong enough to resist. lol – I was willing to tackle my own son for a candy bar. What kind of mother does that? A Mother on Paleo! That’s what kind.
But wait…there’s more. So feeling guilty I told my husband to grab him another from the store. He came back with a bag of Nestle crunch! Really?! It was ok because the bag was still closed. Then he sits down behind me at his desk.
Really?! You are killing me man! A carton of Whoppers? Oh the SABOTAGE. What kind of a support system is this I scream in my head. It’s not their fault I’m doing the Paleo Challenge. Nope not at all. Needless to say the next day I got into the bag of Nestle crunch and the Whoppers.
So you see this time around isn’t going so great but it’s reality. This is my life. These are the challenges I face. I was trying to be nice and not clean out the house again. Turns out maybe I should have. We will see as my world turns! All I can do is get back on the wagon. I am five pounds down even with a set back or two. I was seven but I gained it back again. Maybe the candy? Surely not two pounds worth. Who knows! Be strong people.
