This has been such a different experience from the Spring Challenge. This challenge my intention was to feel strong, healthy, and change my idea of what food was for my life. I have done challenges before and would do great. The day I submit photos or go to a weigh-in then I'm back to the unhealthy habits. I would gain the weight back plus more. This has been my pattern for five-plus years.
After the Spring Challenge, I felt that this could be a sustainable lifestyle and not something I do for 7 weeks. I am now at a point where I enjoy cooking (which is HUGE) and making healthier choices. I no longer feel like eating has to be something I have to feel guilty about.
I feel like myself again and not just for the moment. It truly is surreal when I look in the mirror. For the first time in years the person I see is who I feel like on the inside. I am grateful for the work that has been put into making the book and having these challenges. Thank you!
During this Challenge, I completed 11 Crossfit workouts throughout the week with two running workouts. It was more of a challenge to see what my body could handle and how far could I push myself.
