21 ThingsThat Make Paleo/Crossfit ROCK!

I have enjoyed a number of benefits from the blend of Paleo and Crossfit which keeps me steady as a rock in the face of laziness, boredom and occasional cravings for anything but meat and veggies. I’ve been at it since August 6th (though I have been grain free for about 4 months now) and already I can see amazing results. Here they are in no particular order (though I am thrilled about #1):

-Absence of fat drooping over the top my workout shorts

– The ability to eat fruit, squash and sweet potatoes with no “food baby” the next day

– The cutting down from eating 6-7x/day to 3-4x/day

– The absolute removal of nighttime snacking

– Not being voraciously hungry when I wake up

– No crash after lunch

– As much fat as my heart desires

– Having more energy than ever to workout

– No longer fear Fight Gone Bad or Tabata (ok, maybe just a little)

– Clear skin, no under eye bags and amazingly soft hair

– No mood swings  (that are caused by crazy blood sugar levels, that is)

– No more butt dimples or cottage cheese thighs (still chippin away at the saddlebags though)

– My calves are .75 of an inch smaller (If you know me, this is a huge victory)

– I sleep through the night and wake up every morning at 7, no alarm clock necessary

– I can see my muscles because there is no carb bloat

– I feel more balanced and definitely more body aware

-Not counting calories or ounces or portion sizing anything

– Not craving sugar, breads or crap (finally!!!!!)

– My new mantra: Stand more, sit less

– My new 2.5 pack (I will get to 6 I swear!)

– My handstand can beat yours!

There are more, but I think you get the picture. Seriously, 30 days. Try it. I dare you! Come try Crossfit and see what your body is capable of. I dare you. In fact, I double dog dare you!!

  1. Hi Kim

    I’ve been very interested in trying the Paleo diet….do you have any books that you would suggest? There’s so many…wanted a good opinion of someone I trust and respect. Thanks for sharing! Love the blog.

    • Thanks Tara! I would totally recommend “The Paleo Diet Sloution” by Robb Wolf or “The Paleo Diet” by Loren Cordain. There are a TON of Paleo blogs out there too! Robb Wolf and Mark Sisson (who is more Primal than Paleo) are fab! You should give it a try :0)

      • Thanks so much for the book suggestions! I plan on picking one up this weekend. I have been researching the diet….and I already can’t eat gluten and dairy…..so just cutting out grains would be the biggest change. Once again….thanks!
