Welcome to GreatistYou, a new social experiment where we see what happens when five people decide to change their health—and broadcast their journeys for everyone to see. Four goals, five contestants, and six weeks to crush said goals for the promise of a better life (oh, and $1,000!).
These past few weeks, we've anxiously waited to find out who Regina (@greatistregina) will be fighting for her final Muay Thai challenge. After moving up to a higher weight class (bye-bye, diet!), it was decided that Regina would officially meet her sparring partner in mid-September. That Muay Thai match will happen after GreatistYou officially ends—but don't worry, she's not getting off the hook that easily. For the purposes of this competition, Regina will also be battling: herself. Wait what!?
Don't worry, guys, we've had this in place since the beginning. Regina will go through a list of moves with her instructor, who will judge her and then make the call on whether she's ready to become the Muay Thai fighter she's trained to be.
- Brandon (@greatistbrandon) is still doing a killer job reaching those daily goals. He's walking 10,000 steps per day and still avoiding those "demon" food trucks. His words, not ours. We love food trucks.
- Darby and Adrienne (@greatistdanda) are having fun—maybe too much fun with their food. When mangoes start to resemble ninja turtles, your appreciation of fruit has peaked.
- Jasmine (@greatistjasmine) finished Whole30! Congratulations! From an office full of people who've done this diet in the past, we know how much you've been through. It's time to celebrate.
- Jessi (@greatistmentor) praises Darby and Adrienne for celebrating their three-year anniversary with a run. Overindulgence has become synonymous with celebrations for far too long ,and there's no harm in swapping something like an ice cream cake with a healthy activity. (Then again, there's nothing wrong with treating yo' self either.)
