Ahhhhhh, I can’t believe it!!! It’s finally time to announce the winners of the #HappyNewYOU Challenge!! I have read, and re-read all of the entries so many times and I have finally narrowed it down to our grand prize winner and our runner ups!
First off, let me just say that it was SO HARD to pick only 4 of you to win. I would absolutely LOVE to reward each and every one of your with absolutely everything under the sun! Reading your stories literally brought tears to my eyes and I am so honored, proud, and grateful to be a part of your journey.
But I MUST pick one of you for the grand prize, and after re-reading all the entries numerous times, and having my team read over all of the entries as well…
The GRAND PRIZE WINNER is…
Some of my favorite little excerpts from her submission are…
What have you learned about yourself in the last 8 weeks?
“I realized that my entire life I have been thinking about exercise all wrong. When I first started this challenge I had the mindset that I was going to work hard for 8 weeks and lose weight and be skinnier. But that’s not what it’s about. All of my life I have viewed living healthy as spurts that come and go. I’ll do this challenge, train for this event, or follow this diet… All for a very specific amount of time. Then around week 4 or 5 someone said something about exercising “EVERY DAY OF YOUR LIFE.” Wait what? I always knew I wanted an “Active Lifestyle,” but I don’t think I ever realized what that meant. When I heard that phrase, every day of your life, I realized that being active didn’t mean living life in spurts of activity, it meant being that active, healthier person, every single day. I have loved this challenge because it has taught me how much more I’m capable of than I ever thought possible, and it has given me a love for my body I never had before, but I refuse to let it end here! I choose to have an active (and healthy) lifestyle. Not an active and healthy spurt. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t plan on participating in future challenges! 😄”
What’s the most inspiring thing you’ve seen from this community?
“I love that there is no judgement. This isn’t a community for super fit people who have the perfect athletic body or are super competitive, this community is for everyone. For real women, living real lives, and posting about their real desires to become better. I have never seen a negative comment on the community. Only these real women who genuinely care about helping everyone else become better in some way despite their religion, political party, or anything else, these women just care about being there for each other.”
