It’s Day 2, and Brooke is STRUGGLING! Check out how she’s feeling as her 9-week challenge starts to ramp up. Have any of you felt this way before?


Holy Sh*t! Today has been rough. I am blown away by how much crap I have been consuming. NOT beer, beer is not crap 🙂

I typically get made fun of at work for how “healthy” I eat. Today I realized that yes I eat lots of meat, vegetables, fruit and nuts BUT the creamer, cheese, yogurt, chips, the occastional truffle or whatever small treat is laying around my desk is NOT Paleo. I can’t even imagine what the people I work with eat if they consider my meals healthy?

My brain is mush from zero sugar so bare with me. My plan for a better tomorrow: Creative grocery shopping (I’ve been searching some good receipes on PaleOMG). Complete the first bench mark workout. Yay snatches! Last but not least, I should get my new CrossFit shoes tomorrow. Shoes always make a girl feel better!

    It gets easier! You just have to get the initial withdrawals from junk and allow your brain and body to start craving things that are good for them. Hang in there!
