Thanks to all of you who showed up and endured hill sprints, kettle bell swings and burpees in the soft sand! For those of you who are starting the Zone Competition on Monday, please let us know if you have questions about anything. I recommend that you go to the store today and stock up on items that will easily keep you in the zone all week. I went to the store today and here are the meals I am going to make myself on Monday. Maybe listing them will help those of you who are new to this. Start simple!

Lunch: 3 blocks
Spread 3 tbls of avocado on 1 slice of sprouted wheat bread. Put 2 oz sliced deli turkey on top of that, and add 1 oz of sliced cheese over the top.
