Shin Dig

Thursday Nov 30 2017

Our favorite little Italian is tonight's 21 Day Challenge essay contributor. Angela provides the morning classes with many smiles from her never knowing exactly what is going on to Snatching like an old pro. Personally, I think she lost 15 years of age in this challenge and her commitment to being in the gym every day has brought about a new confindence that is refreshing. Angela, I don't know what we'd do without you, I'm very proud of you!
Have a great Thursday!

I never fail to surprise myself.
When Grant and Justin asked (actually ordered me) to do the 21 day challenge……my heart sank.
“ Che cazzo Angela, don’t do it!!!! You are a chef, remember?”
I panicked a little, food is everything in my culture and is associated with family and friends gathering.
So I’m thinking:  I don’t have to do this…No thank you!!  I love my morning espresso with lots of sugar, I’m the pasta queen, and what about a nice full body, tannings, robust aged wine with bread and cheese?  Why suffer?
To show myself that I could.  So I accepted the challenge, and I excelled at it.  
I learned that cooking Paleo is not very different from the cooking that I already do.  That with an understanding of food and flavor and a lot of imagination I was able to let go of my over sugared espresso and beautiful glass of red wine at the end of my day.
This challenge has taught me not only that I can….  But most importantly how much healthier and stronger I can be!
Thank you, CFGB
