Five rounds for time of: 
155 pound Deadlift, 12 reps 
155 pound Hang power clean, 9 reps 
155 pound Push jerk, 6 reps

Kids like to throw themselves on the ground after a WOD, too.
I'm going to be at the CrossFit Kids certification this weekend.  Soon I will be able to sub for Margaret in class.  Please tell everyone you know with kids that we have a CrossFit Kids class!  They can start anytime - they don't need an On-Ramp.  Ages 7 - 12, currently.

There will be a Paleo Check-in potluck and party after the WOD on Saturday.  You may register here at the bottom of the page.  Chelsea Jowell from Back to Basics Kitchen will be there again to demo some delicious food.  We encourage you to bring something yummy to share, but please, no sugar or honey or alcohol this time.  We will have an End-of-Paleo Celebration with some adult refreshments later!

It's OK to eat the whole egg and the pork bacon, really. Egg yolks are very nutritious! Otherwise nice job. Make sure you are never hungry.

Day 3 foods:
Couple things I've been reading about that are debated in the paleo diet that I'd like your opinion on-potatoes and whey protein.

Shake with 8 oz. coconut milk, scoop of whey protein powder, 1 Tbs of almond butter

Paleo sloppy joes (from --supper yummy!)
half a baked potato

Egg Muffin w/ salsa

Gingery broccoli and beef w/ cauliflower rice (both from

Oops--my post here was for Wednesday.

Sarah, my take on potatoes is that since they're debated and yams are so good without the debate, I'll just do yams. For a re-set you shouldn't use whey. For stripping body fat you shouldn't use whey. Whey can be useful in training for awesomeness, but 90% of your protein should come from real, solid food.

Jennifer, I'm sensing a fear of animal fat. The Human body most assuredly adapts to a lack of dietary fat, and that adaptation is building fat deposits. The adaptation to higher dietary fat is to burn that diesel fuel.

Jennifer Piggott said...

Thanks for the feedback and information. Yes, I was a vegetarian for 15 years and only started eating fish, chicken, and turkey about 7 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. After reading everyone's daily food log, I did go out and buy coconut oil and almond butter. Any other ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! (I haven't had red meat in over 22 years...but wouldn't mind eating it again...I just haven't taken the leap after all these years! I guess I need to spend more time around Vanessa! :)

1 banana

another piece of beef jerky

2 servings (100 cal) coconut water

Darla, yum! Steak! Tins of sardines or clams make great travel food. I will even eat a naked can of salmon if I have nothing else prepared.

Check out for the skinny on cholesterol and saturated fat.

melissa said...

Chelsea - Yeah! I couldn't stop eating it! I had plans to put it in omelets and all sorts of things, but then I ended up just eating it straight. Good thing I didn't get the larger size!
