Today is Police Remembrance Day across Australia. Today’s training efforts are dedicated to all those who risk their life daily and to those who have made the supreme sacrifice ensuring the safety of strangers.

Australian Police Memorial
Australian Police Memorial

The Policeman stood and faced his God,
which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining
just as brightly as his brass.


The Policeman squared his shoulders
and said “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t.
Cause those of us who carry a badge
can’t always be a Saint.

I’ve had to work most Sundays
and at times my talk was rough.
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the streets are awful tough.

But I never took a penny
that wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I’ve worked a lot of overtime
when the bills got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help.
Though at times, I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.

I know I don’t deserve a place
among the people here.
They never wanted me around,
except to calm their fear.

If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
but if you don’t, I’ll understand.

There was silence all around the Throne,
where the Saints had often trod,
As the Policeman waited quietly
for the judgement of his God.


Rest In Peace Lads

    Got this from the Paleo eNewsletter today, thought it might be of interest to us CF Champions 🙂

    Paleo Breakfasts for Champions by Nell Stephenson

    When converting to a Paleo lifestyle, many people find breakfast to be the most challenging meal to keep Paleo. No doubt, this is probably due to the conditioning we’ve likely all received that a healthy way to start the day is with a grain-based product (cereal, bagel, toast and so on). Many of us view certain foods as being for breakfast, others for lunch and dinner, and others for snacks.

    The first step is to throw that thinking out the window! Food is food no matter what time of day, and the morning is a great time to eat vegetables! I personally, eat veggies and red meat, chicken or fish for breakfast on a typical day.

    But, what should you eat if you’re an athlete preparing for a workout? I change my usual breakfast if I’ve got a big workout to do right away. Rather than the protein and veg-heavy foods I mentioned above, I’ll opt for a starchier (via yam, sweet potato or banana) and easier to digest (like egg whites) combination so that I’m not only well fueled, but I don’t have to wait too long to digest.

    The amount you should consume will be determined by body weight and the intensity and duration of the workout. Experiment a bit and see how much you need to eat based on how you feel during the workout, and change the subsequent meal accordingly. Here are some great ideas for athletes looking for a great way to start the day, pre-workout, while remaining Paleo.

    Baked yam, hard-boiled egg whites, olive oil, banana, and raw almond butter

    Homemade smoothie: chilled green tea, egg white protein powder, banana, raw almond butter, and flax seed

    Baked sweet potato, natural (unsweetened) applesauce, sliced lean turkey breast, and olive oil

    Stick with higher glycemic fruits right before and after a workout. Also, remember to add some table salt because athletes need to replace lost electrolytes. We athletes may need to supplement with electrolyte tabs, depending on the intensity and duration of our workouts, as well as ambient conditions and individual sweat rates.

    Experiment with the above suggestions and make changes to keep it varied. Try pineapple in a smoothie instead of banana, or use baby food banana instead of applesauce.

    Whatever you do, DON’T make the mistake of thinking that you have to resort to non-Paleo foods to support athletic performance. If I can stay Paleo while racing Ironman, and my husband can stick to it while racing 100-mile endurance runs, I think it’s safe to say that Paleo provides 100% of the support needed for endurance racing, or any other athletic endeavor!

    Food today:

    Breakfast: Omelette (1 whole egg + 2 egg whites) with bacon, mushroom, brocolli and capsicum

    Snack: Some fruit and half a larabar

    Lunch: Brazil nut-crusted lamb rack with steamed brocolli, cauliflower and carrots

    Snack: A couple of carrot-cake cookies*

    Dinner: Will be tuna and salad.

    *These are the yummiest treats yet! Yummier than the peach patties, paleo cookies and banana nut bites I baked last week. Here’s the recipe:
    I included the grated zest of one orange and, instead of using vanilla extract, used the scraping of a whole vanilla bean. Highly recommended 🙂

    Great Paleo post Jane.

    Michelle, I’m going to have to knock up some of those. My Peach patties and BNB’s were a bit dry. Love the cookies and the banana walnut muffins, but given your recommendation, I’ll have to try these. Unfortunately no time to cook until Friday 😦

    This is starting to sound like the comments page of Australian Woman’s Weekly!!! hahahahaha

    Food today (this will give you an idea of my messed up shift work eating schedule)
    Brekky (11am)
    3 eggs + Bacon + Chorizo + BBQ Sauce
    Lunch/Snack (2pm)
    Chicken Breast smothered with paleo Salsa
    Cinamon Roll Larabar
    Sleep for 1.5 hrs
    Dinner (@ 9pm, now):
    Beef Casserole
    Taking to work:
    Double serving of Qucik Berry Breakfast (I’ll down this around 2am)
    Orange, 2 Kiwi Fruit, 1 Pear
    Little baggie of pecans, macadamia’s, walnuts & dried cranberries
    Couple of BNB’s, Peach patties and Paleo Cookies
    Tin os salmon just in case I get the munchies and need some protein
    Lots of coffee!! 🙂
    I may not eat all this stuff but I’m in the office tonight and tend to eat if it’s quiet. Given the weather, it may be quiet so I’d rather be prepared with decent tucker than succumb to a 3am Macca’s binge!

    Keep up the great work on the Paleo diet guys. I hope many of you are feeling and seeing the benefits.

    Actually, today’s eating wasn’t that messed up. Stayed tuned for tomorrow! Now that’ll be messed up 😛

  11. Hi Gang,

    Have been managing to paleo while in singapore. Resisted many treats during training and all the yummy noodle bowls. Basically sticking to veggies, fish, fruit and almonds and organic food bars (the yellow labeled ones).

    Oh yeah, and I’m sweating like crazy so I’m drinking an “isotonic” drink…probably totally un-paleo but it’s helping me feel better!

    Pete, thanks for the advice. Yesterday was fine, today not so good so who knows? Just keep trucking and eating clean is my strategy. Miss you all!

  12. Jon woods said

    Last full day in Europe and have been keeping up to date with posts and wod’s, my diet has been pretty much eating and drinking whatever I can decipher in French or Spanish while away, buy have been doing a combination of workouts from Eva t’s wod on the road compilation and some others from previous cell wod’s etc that are manageable in a hotel room (because there haven’t been too many parks for circuit type stuff with 400s and 800s etc).

    In saying that in some of these wod’s I have actually managed some PBs but won’t go into details here, but keen for some home prepared meals and hit the wod’s hard again.

    Hopefully will catch up with the cell crew sooner rather than later.
