  1. Steph, Hard to catch Darby on those lunges but you and Tammy passed em on the row!!! Awesome. I felt bad having people crash on their heads today. Really needed more time to work on that stuff. Anyway, I gotta start a running regiment to get ready for the Games. Interesting combos you're putting together. Maybe we can get some group runs together. I have all the girls doing hill sprints! Of course, I'm using the cold weather as an excuse!

  2. Steph, thanks for all the great recipes. On another note, what type and brand of protein powder are you using? Thanks. Melissa K.

  3. Melissa - my protien is not paleo friendly, but I had just brought 2 big tubs. It is lean dessert protein by bsn (www.bsnonline.net) and they have lots of yummy flavors. I love the whipped vanilla and the cinnamon. It is whey protein but the ingredients does say soy, and there is sucralose in there and a long list of ingredients. Probably purer options out there but this one tastes great!
