Today is day 12. You will post your points from Thursday September 11th. We have a physical challenge and a nutrition challenge starting today. Your Nutrition Challenge is if you eat or drink anything not paleo approved, one bite, one lick, one sip, one gulp you loose ALL of your nutrition points for that day. You will continue this nutrition challenge  the remaining of your 19 days. Your bonus will be you body thanking you ever so sweetly, your gut will love you, and you will feel totally AMAZING!

Here is my Tough Love speech:

It’s not that hard! Don’t you dare tell me this is hard. Giving up heroin is hard. Drinking your coffee black is. Not. Hard. Substituting Sunday morning French toast in favor of a giant omelet and side of crispy bacon is not hard. Eating fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables every day is not hard. So I don’t want to hear one single complaint.  It’s 19 days, and it’s for the most important cause on earth – the only physical body you will ever have in this lifetime. Don’t tell me you “slipped”. Unless you physically tripped and your face landed in a box of Krispy Kremes, you DID NOT SLIP. You made a choice to eat something of poor quality. It’s always a choice, so do not phrase it as if you had an accident.  Commit here, 100%, for the next 19 days.  This does require a bit of effort, people. If this means giving up your alcohol or if you’re cutting grains and dairy for the first time, you have to replace those calories with something. You have to make sure you’re eating enough, that your vitamins and nutrients are balanced, that you’re getting enough protein, fat and carbohydrates.  There are a ton of good resources out there, so take responsibility for your own plan. Improved health, fitness and performance doesn’t happen just because you’re now taking a pass on chocolate milk.

Good Luck! :)
