Paleo Challenge – Day 4 Journal Entry (1/17/13)

So far so good. Day 4 has come and gone and the new diet is going well. I haven’t found myself missing any of my old treats, and that’s with plenty of them laying around the house…we’ve got Skittles and M&Ms as rewards for Roman’s potty training. Normally we would both get rewarded, but now only he gets the treat. I know…I know…I’m changing my diet to be healthier, yet I still give my son sugary candy. I’ve been searching for a healthier reward for him and so far I haven’t had any luck. As soon as I find one, the switch will be made.

Tomorrow is my last workout before the competition at my CrossFit box. I’m excited, but a little nervous at the same time. I’ve never participated in a lifting competition and I’ve only been doing CrossFit for 2 months. I know it’s going to be tough, but I just don’t want to suck! I guess we’ll see how Saturday goes…
