Craig Smith 24 Nov 20178:04 AM Probably my last journal for the challenge so here goes! Training done and dusted!!! food all ready for today and will add a small of amount of carbs (100g of sweet potato) to dinner. Tan booked for tonight and an early morning photo and my 12 weeks is completed! I have enjoyed the ride which has had many ups and downs but it is all part of the learning experience. I take away a renewed passion for fitness and eating healthy. My fitness levels are close to the best they have been and will be the best they have EVER been as I continue to live the Max Challenge way of life. Probably the most important this i learned from the challenge came in the form of an email which said, "creating habits not restrictions". We can still have a nice glass of wine with a loved one or a pie and beer with mates at the footy, as log as we continue to live a healthy lifestyle the rest of the time. For those that are gunning for a top 10 or 50 spot and may miss out, don't be disheartened. By just completing the 12 weeks you should feel very proud, as a lot have dropped off along the way for one reason or another and a healthier version of you is the best prize at the end of the day. The accolades of finishing in the top 10 will not last as long as the health benefits you have gained! Finally, thanks to all those that have taken the time to write a journal and also read them. Knowing others are going through the same struggles at times can give you that push to get to the next high. Good luck in continuing your journey guys!
