Day 42 of 42
Taking a moment here to celebrate a personal accomplishment. Six weeks ago, I set out to lose 20 pounds in 42 days for the #gravitytransformation challenge, and what can say... MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! ...
Ended up losing 20.5 pounds and 4.4% body fat, and I’m stoked to say I’m literally in the best shape of my life (lowest weight and body fat percentage ever).
The truth: I was far from perfect when it came to the recommended program, both in diet and exercise. But after doing the math going in, I realized losing 3.4 pounds a week on average was a pretty lofty goal. So I got educated, and stayed prepared, planning ahead for events, and making up for missed workouts without exception. A few holiday feasts and nights out drinking could have been disastrous. But in the end, it wasn’t perfection that got me there; it was consistency.
I’m also extremely lucky to have the ultimate motivation for getting in shape: my girls. The wife and kids are always just full of energy, and for awhile, they were just running circles around me while I grabbed another soda because I was out of breath trying to keep up. I knew they deserved a better version of me. So I envisioned that dude and aimed at him like a bullseye. And by the way, “Day 42” me ain’t even close to what he looks like.
Shouts out to anyone here that ever encouraged and supported me from the beginning, only knowing I was some guy that needed a lift. Faith in humankind restored. I’ll do my best to pay it forward in any way I can. @huntrose1 @muscleandtheory @robbietransforms @esimulation @keith.fitness @fashion_al10 @bennys_betterment @heavyset2heavysets @fitnessproductshq @simonecanella_pt @thagoliath @optimised.self @dixfitness @ttang85 @susanniebergallfitness @thefitengineer_ @paulberrytraining @erfan_moradi @monikamakanjuola
