Avoid the sophomore slump!
Week 2 is upon us for the Wellness Challenge. If you're unfamiliar with the term the "sophomore slump" it usually refers to any second (or "sophomore") effort that doesn't live up to the first. So in this case, are we able to hold on to our incredible first week numbers in the second week? It is very easy to be excited about something when it's new and sexy, but it's the folks who are able to convert that newfound passion and the behaviors that came with it into habit that will be successful. Both during this challenge, and after. Keep it up, folks!
Are you a dog lover? Well, then you would have one more reason to love the Paleo Diet. Scientific American recently released an article that, in a nutshell, says in the early days (and I do mean early) hunters and gatherers would have had a much easier time finding protein sources than fat and carbohydrate sources. Because of this they would have had plenty to go around for friends of all species. Leaving plenty for wolves that might be lingering close by to take part in the feast when scraps were thrown their way. And in doing so, beginning the domestication of wolves and then dogs.
