Emilia recently completed our five week nutrition challenge where she lost 5.7 lbs and decreased her body fat by 1.3%! Emilia talked with Coach Brian to discuss her results from the challenge. See their full conversation below!
What was your favorite part of the challenge?
“Connecting with my Mom a lot more and feeling happier when I woke up and motivated everyday, I wasn’t really before.”
“Why did you join the nutrition challenge?”
“I joined because I didn’t feel like I was seeing results from just doing CrossFit 3 times a week. “
Tell us a little bit about your successes over the last five weeks.
“I’m pretty happy with the results.“
What was the first sign that you were making progress?
“Probably the halfway point. When I saw that I lost a few pounds I wasn’t expecting that at all. I know that my stomach felt a lot better, but I didn’t think that I lost any weight from it.”
When you signed up for the challenge were you hoping to lose weight or for your stomach to feel better? What was the main reason that you wanted to join?
“The number one reason was because of my stomach and losing weight was just a plus from it.”
Were there other results that we wouldn’t know about that you were happy with? (For example, better sleep)
“I do the morning classes for CrossFit and I always used to have go home, shower and take a nap for 2-3 hours before I go into work, I’m there until 10:30pm at night. Now I don’t really need to nap because I have the energy.”
What was the biggest obstacle we helped you overcome during the challenge?
“I always had quick processed foods and now I learned to like prep everything beforehand. “
During the 5 weeks, what do you think the top factors were to help you be successful?
“Probably the people in the FaceBook group, just pushing. Also, I feel like Vanessa and Tommy were really on point with the meetings. Everything they talked about, it hit me, like last week the stress one, I really needed that. It was good timing with everything.“
If there is someone sitting at home in the same shoes as you were five weeks ago – what would you tell them about the nutrition challenge?
“That it works. I was skeptical about it because I didn’t think that I could be strict with myself but because everybody else doing it with me and talking about it with me. It helped a lot.”
So you feel like the group component with other people doing it with you was helpful?
“Yeah, and my Mom also trying to do it with me. If it was just me in the house I probably wouldn’t have been able to do it, but she was doing it with me.”
Anything else that you want to add?
“I want to thank everyone for helping me out along the way.”
