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.

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:)
