  1. hey Lindsay, where were you and the sugar daddy? you’ve been so die hard that if you miss a day i’m stinking worried. also bushy, come in Saturday and join the 20 club on that death by 10 meter. its in you.

  2. Wow. One month ago I literally could not run. When we did the death by 10 meters last time I opted to row instead. Today I ran it and PR’d. Last time I got 13 rounds and this time I got 15! (By the skin of my teeth.) I feel SO PROUD!!!!!!!!

    This week I started jumping on small box instead of stepping. (A big jump. 🙂

    Also I seem to have what appears to look like muscle in my shoulders. What the heck!

    Nettie and Katherine I am so happy you are liking the recipes!

  3. thanks for the invite jon. i’m afraid on saturday i’ll be shredding cranmore. i hope to stomp some of that pow that was just dumped on the northeast and get gnarly in the park. i’m so stoked (how’s my snowboarding slang?). can i take a point for hitting some big air and jumping stuff?

    welcome back mark and sarah.

  4. I Am SO PROUD OF YOU DANIELLE! I wrote it on FB too, in case you missed it:) I was kind of incredulous at Jons post though….glad you cleared that up:)

    Anthony and Nate thanks so much for pushing me in the run tonight. Nice Pr Nate!

  5. Hey Jon, I’ve had to stay at work till about 5:30 for the past three days…trust me its been rough! I’ll be there tonight and sat but I think you’ll be off duty by then…boo 🙁

  6. Just wanted to say to everyone. Drew and I are still over on the Vineyard, and it looks like we will be for a while longer. Miss everyone, really bummed to miss all of Jon’s WODs, by the comments they were really good. We have been working out in a gym on the island, just not the same…but there is a pool which is nice!

  7. We miss you Jane and Drew. Enjoy the pool!

    So everyone loves sausage yeah? While I have enjoyed the occasional “legally paleo” sausage on this challenge it is super fattening and not good for you. Here is an alternative I made at home. Jon did not believe it was not real sausage.

    Mama’s Tastes Like the Real Thing You Can’t Believe How Good It Is Sausage

    1 pound ground turkey
    2 tsp Bell’s seasoning ( This comes in the little yellow box in the spice aisle. It is a mix of ground herbs. If you don’t want to use it the important one is sage.)
    2 tsp fennel seeds
    1 and 1/2 tsp kosher salt
    1 tsp black pepper

    You can form this into little patties and fry em up with your eggs, use in a stuffing, I just broke it up and cooked it in the pan and put on paleo pizza.
    Absolutely awesome.

  8. Paleo Shepherds Pie

    1 lb. ground lamb
    1 onion, chopped
    2 C carrots, sliced
    1 tsp. ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp. sea salt
    3/4 C beef broth
    1 T arrowroot powder
    1 T dried thyme
    1 T olive oil
    1 head cauliflower, broken in chunks
    2 T coconut oil
    1/2 black pepper

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    On the stove top, steam cauliflower chunks until just tender. Put in a food processor and add coconut oil. Blend until creamy, season with ground pepper and set aside.

    Heat olive oil in a skillet and saute onions until tender. Add ground lamb and cook until crumbly and brown. Add carrots and cook for another 5 minutes.

    Mix beef broth and arrowroot powder together. Slowly add the mixture to lamb and carrots. Season with the salt and pepper and simmer for about 5 more minutes.

    Pour into a 9-inch pie pan. Spread cauliflower over the top and bake for about 30-35 minutes (remove when top starts to brown, and sides are bubbly).

  9. Just had Lindsey’s creamy tomato soup and mama’s turkey burgers for supper. DELICIOUS!!! If you haven’t made either yet – do it!

    Jon, you went out with a bang – those wall climbs were brutal!!!

  10. I made this basil spread the other night and put it on paleo pizza as a base over the crust. You can also spread it on paleo bread for sandwiches, use it as a dip for veggies, or even use it as a salad dressing.

    Mama’s Basil Spread

    4 cups packed basil leaves
    3 cloves garlic
    1/4 cup walnuts
    2 tsp kosher salt
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 cup olive oil

    Puree everything in a food processor and keep covered in fridge. Use as needed.

  11. Greg and I are snacking on Greg B’s homemade Paleo Krunch. SO GOOD!!!! If you make it, double the recipe – you’ll be glad you did. We didn’t have enough almonds so we threw in some raw cashews. YUM!!!!!

  12. okay, so I took the week off to rest my elbow, but it hasn’t really changed much so no resting it I guess. I also got a verbal spanking from my MS doctor about my diet having no dairy in it. Therefore, I am bowing out of the challenge, but will continue to do the best i can. I haven’t had any bread, pasta, potatoes,rice or anything like that since Dec 1st and I will continue to eat as paleo as I can. I will be back to work out Monday. I feel that I am getting alot stronger, and my right leg hasn’t given out in almost 2 weeks now. Coincidence? Sarah and Mark I need to have your take on Ireland as I am going in April…see you soon. Off to have a drink with the birthday girl Amy at Wicked.

  13. my (bodys) feedback on wall climbs:
    Ow, crap that hurts, I have muscles there?, what the….. , thanks a lot Jon! 🙂 I think I owe at least $20 to your imaginary swear jar due to those!

    I’ve missed you Val! Can’t wait to see you again at C3.

    What more can I say about Paleo…I love it! I feel great! I’ve hit a plateau with my weight, not loosing much with numbers on the scale…but I’ve gone down in size with my clothes. So thats all that matters, I guess.

    The sign that Paleo works. I was able to make a full Non-Paleo sugary french toast meal with bacon for the boys at the FD during the snow storm, I did’nt have one bite. The more important fact is that I didn’t want or crave it! Later that day the boys were cooking, they purposefully set aside a salad for me with no dressing and the vegetables with no butter. I have been asked by a few of them (they won’t admit to it) about what Paleo means and how to do it. The final realization that I’m a Complete Paleo Geek is I got home after a 72 hour shift and had a Paleo Panic attack when I realized I had NO VEGETABLES in my refridgerator!!!

    If anyone has any clues on my plateau from the scale numbers, I’ll take any advise!

    Congratulations on everyone making it this far! Keep up the hard work!
