    Looking good Ma! I dont suppose you lifting all that weight in the background as well.
    Also, those Bear complexes really killed me today, I feel drunk. Drunk on crossfit, I love it!!

    The sweet potato fries/chips are really tasty. My wife and I do paleo nachos using that recipe and then use ground grassfed beef, tomatoes, olives, peppers and onions for the chili part. Topped with avocado at the end. It is simply amazing. No more missing nachos while watching the football playoffs.

    +75lbsx5 for pullups and 11:31 for the metcon. The double pullin’ was tough.

    Another great resource for paleo recipes is marksdailyapple.com He posts a new recipe every Saturday and most are delicious. He talks about eating “primal” which is basically paleo + dairy. I just omit the dairy from the recipes that have them or try a substitution. And his cookbook is awesome too. Highly recommended: http://www.amazon.com/Primal-Blueprint-Cookbook-Grain-Free-Gluten-Free/dp/0982207727/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1295364256&sr=8-3

    Dani, we will get our hollow rocks this week. We just didn’t feel up to the challenge yesterday in our saddened Patriot post playoff state. If you don’t make in on a day that we do them please continue along at home.

    Nice job mama!
