End of the Spring Cleaning Paleo Challenge! Well, that 30 days just flew by. People look amazing, WOD results are better, and it seems like people are feeling amazing. I love it. So, the big question I always ask is, “Which changes are you going to keep as part of everyday life?” I hope the answer is “ALL OF THEM!” However, I am a realist and I do realize that indeed you might actually melt if you can’t have dark chocolate or a gin and tonic once in a while (You won’t really melt, trust me. But I get it). So GO FOR IT…ONCE IN A WHILE. Allow the things that you truly missed to find their way back into your life on a limited basis and forget the rest. You don’t need it, you never did. You’ve just proven this to yourself by eliminating it for a month. Congratulations, I am so proud of you all.
We need an after picture!
