“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
The 6-week challenge has come to a conclusion, but I hope your new and improved habits haven't. As I told all my clients through this process, don't start anything you can't do forever. Let's make habits that will improve the quality of our lives and be sustainable. My wish is that through this process, each of you who participated learned more about yourself and how to get closer to your goals. We are all works in progress, there should always be something to strive for...otherwise, what's the damn point?
I checked in with my famous 8 to find out what they felt about their experience overall. Hear it from them, in their own words below!

For any of you who didn't reach the exact goals you initially set, make sure to take a moment to reflect. I guarantee upon reflection (in any situation) there are nuggets of widsom to retrieve. We learn more from failures than we do our successes.
You may not have lost weight...but did you realize you went on a trip where you had much less control of your environment and didn't gain weight? You might not have improved your meaurements dramatically but do you realize that you achieved that pull-up you never believed you could do? Did you learn something about yourself in this process? That you actually can put yourself out there and make public videos? Do you have a new found awareness of destructive habits you didn't even realize you had?
Awareness of these sort of things are far more valuable than inches lost on your waist. So absorb all of it and soak it up. These are things you can adjust, address or continue in the future to improve the quality of your life...and frankly improve yourself as a human being.
Thank you to all of these amazing people for sharing themselves and their stories. This experiment has been more powerful than I could have imagined and it's thanks to all of you. Keep those hearts open and never stop inspiring the world. And remember the only thing you have to do to inspire anyone is to be yourself fully, authentically and unapologetically.
Until next time. Love you guys and I'll see you in the Boom Room!
