Nikki said...

Aimee - can you sign me up for an hour with Judith sometime after the affiliate team tryouts? 1pm maybe?

Jason Lyons said...

Running out of time to sign up for Affiliate team
or volunteer. Please let me know today.

Nikki said...

I was reading Plentus's new post (another great one by the way!) and the Melissa Urban article he linked. I had to share this great quote I found hidden in one of the reader comments:

I have found a small shift in my thinking that has had a profound impact on my outlook at foods. It is no longer "cheat days" or "cheat foods". They are "treat days" and "treat meals."

One week down for all of you doing the nutrition challenge. Whether you're doing no-sugar, zone, paleo, or Whole30 -- how is it going?!? Is anyone experiencing any withdrawal symptoms from cutting out grains?

Melanie said...

I have had no grains and next to zero crap sugar so far. I feel great but need to spend some time in the kitchen playing with some recipes. Thank you to Donkey and Jaime for hooking me up with a few! I am missing my Starbucks Chai Latte most and this warm weather makes me really want ice cream but other than that, I am hanging tough! I plan to bring my food journal in tomorrow for Aimee to look at.

Kristen said...

I would like to help volunteer on Sun.

Stephanie Vincent said...

nice niki....i hereby abolish the word cheat and replace it with TREAT when it comes to food!!

My 30 day challange was to give up caffeine and the experience thus far was radical hateloss worthy.

Miranda said...

If we don't sign up to try out can we come and do the wods just to see if we actually can...

Jason Lyons said...


I will answer for you...you can do it! I expect many people to scale and it is alright. Come out and have fun and become a member of the team. Everyone that tries out is on the team...it is just a matter of what place in the rotation. You never know what can happen. This will be FUN..even if you have to scale. Have confidence and come and kick some butt.

I am asking people to sign up in advance so I can figure out the logistics before the day of the event.

Joe A said...


I should be able to come out on sunday to try these wods.

Stephanie Vincent said...


Check out this blogpost on primal eating modern table...related to the Treat vs. Cheat niki brought up!

Dorothy said...

I agree Miranda. I think you can do it. You are one strong woman!

Aimee Lyons said...

Nikki- I have you all set for 1pm on Sunday with Judith.
