Winning the War on Fat!
-Devin Torii & Maggie Craig
This was the first time we have done a crossfit challenge… why we waited so long? Fear of failure kept us from truly taking the challenge head on. We decided though if we both did it we could keep each other in check or at least try. The day the challenge meeting was scheduled as were on our way back from rugby nationals and were coming back with our tails between our legs. Last year we took home the title and this year we walked away with a 5th place finish. Needless to say we ate and drank our sorrows away on the flight home. After attending the last meeting of the night we had to get pinched, aka , pride reduction. We learned that our bodies’ superiliac zones were out of control, thus we needed to take back control of our love handles!
We also knew that we would have to up our attendance in order to get the full benefits of the diet. The first few days were hard, we spent time throwing out all our beloved snacks and filled our fridge with meat, vegetables and a few select fruits. I (Devin) also started baking new treats; paleo muffin nuggets. We soon fell head over heels for the tasty treats. Besides the new muffins we also tried new recipes of which we have to say are totally awesome especially the stuffed pablano peppers. Our coaches Gina and Kurt sent out loads of helpful hints and our mates were great for sharing recipes, advice and encouragement.
Despite the fact that the challenge was only 23 days we were very impressed with our results. Besides the actual measurement changes the changes in our mental health were startling. We slept like babies and got along like new friends!! Overall we loved the results and have vowed to continue with the diet, but with the holidays approaching there will be a few cheats.
