For the last three months I’ve been doing the Transformation Challenge from Bodybuilding.com and my end date is officially up in two days, April 22, 2011. I didn’t get ripped like the two people in the photo above, but I did see some great progress.
This Friday I’ll be taking my final weigh-in, “after” photos and body measurements for the program and I can’t wait. When I started this program, I put it in my head that I was going to stick with it and work harder than I ever had before.
It was hard, but I did it.
I ate the exact same thing every day during the whole program. I’m no stranger to eating the same meals over and over. I’ve been doing it for years, but I’ve always changed it up every couple of weeks. It really wasn’t that difficult. I like knowing exactly what to buy at the store without a shopping list and knowing what to cook without recipes.
I’ll go into more detail about my nutrition plan when I write my essay for the contest, which I’ll link to here on the site as well.
I think I’ve done quite well for this challenge. I’ve accomplished my goals originally set out when I started the program, so I couldn’t be happier. I’ve actually lost more weight than I wanted to, but I really wanted to stick to the program until the end so I kept going.
I’m super-excited because I plan on bulking up starting next week with a new routine. I’ll also be changing my nutrition plan, but not by much. I’ll just make a few modifications and bump up the calories.
I should have my results from the Transformation Challenge posted sometime this weekend, so check back soon.
