Day 49 - Sunday

Crossfit competition today was AWESOME! Went into it this morning frustrated with my progress and down about my back and sick stomach. Came out totally pumped and excited about this new exercise community that I have stumbled on. Seeing all of the incredible athletes is so motivating. The progress that all of the valley park crossfitters has made over the last couple of months is so much more than I have ever seen with any of the other exercise program I have been involved in in the past. So props to Dan, Brandon, and Herb for bringing out the inner athlete in all of us. Ok, back to my paleo journey and hopefully back on track for the remainder of the next level challenge.
