Thanks 8 a.m. crew. This was super super super hard.

You looked great, Ivy! Awesome job.

I heart working out with Ivy!

On an unrelated note, I just had my first paleo T-giving with friends. Now, my friends are not paleo but they were for this day, as I imposed my will upon them.

This was also the first turkey day that I did not slip into a pants-unbuttoned-crashed-out-on-the-couch-wake-up-with-a-puddle-of-drool-on-your-chest-three-hours-later food coma.

I wonder if it had anything to do with the quality of food we had?

And trust me, I went AMRAP on the helpings.

Anybody else experience this?
