Paleo Challenge

We stole a few minutes after yesterdays group workout to announce the “results” of CFPEI’s paleo challenge. Over 40 registered and we had a total inches lost of approaching 85″!!!

Great to have the support of everyone around the gym talking about this for the month, sharing recipes, where to buy the best meat and vegetables, etc.!

While losing inches was most everybody’s goal, we had some fellas who wanted to put on mass that were successful with that as well.

I did not lose one inch, but I am more than ok with that, I was able to get about 8 PR’s in the last few weeks and have been sleeping very well and am feeling great.

We will continue on with the measurements at the end of the month for those that are intersted in that. Otherwise, watch for some informational sessions on nutrition coming up.

We also had some fun draw prizes and have approx $60 left that will be donated to the food bank in the next day or two (Great idea from Coach Joey)

Thanks to Sarah and Joey for helping to organize this and for putting on a fantastic information session, measuring, answering questions, etc. Also to Dave and Mike for helping us decipher the results and letting us run with this.

Hope you will continue on with your positive nutrition changes and hope you were able to have some fun throughout the challenge:)

  1. Thanks for putting this together, Cheryl! A great event with incredible results!!

  2. Thanks so much, Cheryl, for spearheading and organizing the challenge. It was good to have the nudge. Echoing the thanks to Joey and Sarah (appreciate the great talk and the great snacks!), and to Mike and Dave. What a great community we have at CF PEI!

  3. Great work guys! And great work Cheryl for the paleo initiative!

  4. Cool post from Strong is the New Skinny and very timely and fitting to our recent and ongoing challenge:)

    Our weight is important to a degree, but start paying more attention to your overall fitness! When you set goals, rather than just setting weight loss goals, consider other areas as well. Become faster. Lift heavier. Finish workouts quicker. Increase your stamina and endurance. Work on your agility and balance. Clean up your diet and get more sleep. Consider the way you feel and how your clothes fit. I believe that true health is about balance in ALL areas. Don’t let a number on the scale be all that defines how fit you are!

  5. Thanks so much Cheryl, Joey and Sarah for the great work. This 30 day challenge came at the perfect time for me. Thanks also to everyone at crossfit PEI for the fantastic support and encouragement you provide on a daily basis during some pretty tough workouts.
    I LOVE CROSSFIT and I am greatful for the strength and confidence it has given me.
    Cheers and bring on those @#$#$% double unders!!!!!

  6. Great Work Everybody.

    I look forward to participating in the next challenge.

    Finished my strict Whole30/Paleo Challenge as of Wednesday. By then I’ll have all the benchmarks to measure progress in better ways. Ultimately, I’m down ~ 20#s and 1 1/2 Pant Sizes

    Now to focus on those overhead squats….. and mobility work. Grrr.
