Re: Knee surgery rehab

I have had 5 knee surgeries on the same knee. Do not not try and scale WODs so you can use your knee until the doctor gives you the OK. :ranting2:

Re: Paleo/zone Block 30 day challenge

I appreciate everyone's feedback. That's why I asked for it.

Is there something you would suggest as an improvement in the quality of the foods I have chosen? I thought I did well there?
