Nutrition Challenge Results – The End is Just The Beginning

Hey Bare Covers!

It’s been a week since we ended the nutrition challenge and we have finally wrangled in as many scores as possible so we could get an accurate final tally! Before we announce the winners, I wanted to take a step back to put perspective on things.

Now what?

The nutrition challenge is over, so now what do we do? How do we keep healthy habits but also live a little?

Let’s reflect back on why we did this challenge.  The entire purpose of this challenge was simple – better our health by replacing current eating and activity habits with better ones. Was anyone perfect? Nope.  Did we all start doing things a little bit better? Yup.  Have we reaped benefits from that? Absolutely.

As I think about the “what now”, for me it’s about continuing on with habits that allow me balance.  Before the challenge, I would frequently come home, have a cocktail, and throw in a few more starches than needed in my diet.  After 5 weeks, those habits are broken, but my enjoyment of beer tasting has not gone away.  Taking it out of my life completely just isn’t something that I’m willing to do but changing how I have it in my life is totally doable! Instead of that brew when I get home, it’s something I save for a social outing on the weekend or a business meeting.  It’s not 100% paleo, but it’s a doable, better habit that eliminates a ton of empty carbs for me vs. before.

So the real question for you is what will your own habits be that will enable you balance? You may enjoy coffee with a little cream, mom’s special meal, or doughnuts (cough, cough, Mrs. LeJeune). If that’s something that helps you experience life, find a way to not rule it out but be smart about it.

Whatever we do, let’s not go back to the very habits we broke.  They aren’t habits anymore, so let’s keep it that way.

The Results

Going in to the final week of the nutrition challenge, two teams were tied with 14 total points.  After the 5th and final week, the winner is….both of those teams.  Yup, they tied exactly with a team total of 222 points in week 5.  They will receive sweet prize packs filled with swag, goodies, and amazing hi fives!  The full standings are below.

Congrats Tammy, David, Adam, Amy, and Ben!
