Some BPA-free canned foods.  BPA has been known to be a problem for a decade, but people are only now really starting to object.  BPA is also in most receipts - if you handle receipts all day consider a barrier cream or gloves, especially if you are a woman thinking about having children.  More info from a neutral source.  More about the studies that show BPA passes through skin.

Fun with kettlebells.  A coordinated Russian display of skill - the best part is at the end.

A diversion. With robots. 

A New Year

It's time to start thinking about another Paleo challenge.  I need some company in my misery if I am going to give up cream and stevia in my coffee again.  This January might be the perfect opportunity for us to band together and log our food intakes.  No sugar, legumes, grains, or dairy.  (Or beer!)  Just meat, good fat, vegetables, some fruit, some starch. Try it for a month and see how you look, feel, and perform.  It can make a big difference.  Just logging your food is very interesting and makes a big difference.  Even if you are not ready to go REALLY paleo, you can take a good hard look at food quality and quantity.

Not ready to go whole hog? Try giving up just gluten.  

There are going to be age group divisions to qualify for the CrossFit regionals this year:  "four age divisions (45-50, 50-55, 55-60, 60+)".  Read more.
