The week before Recovery week is always marked by FUN Fridays and this week is also special because the Memorial Day Meltdown Challenge concluded. Now it's not the end of a challenge that is special, it is awarding prizes to those who worked hard that is amazing.
This challenge focused on losing unhealthy body fat. We did that by controlling the amount of processed foods we ate for the last 28 days. No special pills, diet potions, or crazing meal plans that only included steamed broccoli and baked chicken.
The meals were delicious. Lots of colorful veggies along side a protein with some beneficial fats sprinkled in.
For 28 Days we worked on different ways to keep making it happen while life's challenges occur. Since you have to eat no matter where you are or what you are doing, we focused on choosing healthy options whether stuck at a lunch meeting, out of the house all day on the run, in the house working with the fridge nearby, or weekend events and parties.
And of course there are prizes. The Memorial Day Meltdown Challenge had 5 different prizes to be won. No one knew what these prizes were ahead of time. Our goal was to become healthier through this challenge. And although the saying can be a bit corny, We are all winners when that is the goal.
We did award real prizes too. The top 15 people who lost the highest percentage of body fat had their names put into a bucket for the raffling off of the 5 prizes. Here is how that went down.
These prizes were awarded without any particular order and the names were drawn randomly.
1 hour massage certificate to Chichester Massage - Brian Lothridge
1 bottle of SFH fish oil and 1 container, any flavor, of protein - Sue Chamberlin
3 months of Cr8 Your Plate Meal Planning - Lori Chateneauf
A summer supply of Papa Dean's Microgreens - Jeannie Johnson
Precision Nutrition bundle pack - Laurie Roy
Now here is your next challenge. Keep it going. Keep increasing your health. In order to keep your health you have to work at it. Health doesn't come naturally in fact as we age, we naturally lose health. Fight that fight.
Congratulations to all.
