My American Ninja Warrior!!

posted in: Health

I'm SO excited to announce that my better half, my husband, Mike, is going to be on the next season of American Ninja Warrior!! For those of you not familiar, click HERE, and be prepared to be amazed by some serious athletes! This post is very much a part of the journey my husband and I have been on. In his submission video above, Mike talks about my battle with Crohn's Disease and how following a paleo lifestyle completely changed our lives. We've fought hard to get here, and one at a time, we're making our dreams come true!

For so many years, Mike has put all of his focus on me. And I mean all of it. He's worked incredibly hard to see me healthy again, and I'm thrilled to say that we finally did it together! Now that I'm healthy, he's been able to do something that he is so passionate about, which has been to train for American Ninja Warrior! I am so proud of him and all that he's accomplished! We just received a phone call this week that he was selected to be on the show!

We are over the moon excited for this experience, and I can't wait to watch him compete! We'll be headed to Venice Beach on March 13th for the competition, less than 2 weeks away! Β He makes the most unbelievable obstacles look easy; he's such a natural!

He follows a paleo lifestyle, just like I do, and it's made all the difference in the world. We've used Stupid Easy Paleo's new ebook – The Paleo Athlete, to bring his training to a whole new level! I'll dive more into how The Paleo Athlete works for him, in an upcoming post! Stay tuned, but for now, we'd love for you to check out his American Ninja Warrior Submission video! See if you can spot our pup, Tyson! My hubby never ceases to amaze me!

    congratulations!!!!! that was something i was meaning to ask you….if your husband also eats paleo πŸ™‚ mine is still resisting….mostly we eat the same things, but his plate gets a mountain of rice too. it is great to see you guys achieving your dreams…..

      Thanks so much, Mika!! Mike switched to paleo about a month after I did, once he saw how amazing I was feeling! He was already a really healthy guy, but it totally changed his life and took his health to the next level. He's since realized that his body really doesn't like gluten or beans (the two things he's tried since…he learned the hard way) so he knows this way of eating really works for him. Everyone has to go at their own pace, sounds like you're already doing an amazing job if your hubby eats mostly the same as you πŸ™‚
