Monday - Moment of Truth

It time for everyone that started the Paleo Challenge to do their Benchmark tests again.
It has been a very challenging 3 weeks for all of us. Throughout the ups and downs, I can honestly say that I have seen some Awesomeness, some Really Good, and some no-so-Good moments.
For those that didn't do so well, don't worry. Changing your habits doesn't happen over night. The Paleo lifestyle is not for everyone. Take this challenge as just that... A Challenge. Sometimes we can not rise to the occassion, but we have to keep trying in order to make changes in our lives.

Even is you didn't do as well as you had hoped, you will still see that your body changed in certain areas. Either inches lost, strength gained, or better endurance. So Good Luck!
