Wine for a Gym Challenge – The Outcome

As promised I’m sharing the outcome of my 45-day Athletic Apex Transformation Challenge. I killed it. Nailed it. Beat my own goals. And it feels great! In only 45 days, I managed to gain 1.24 pounds of muscle, reduce my body fat from 15.2 percent to 14.9 percent and nearly everything across the board moved in the positive direction. How cool is that? Below is a chart I made to show the improvements:

What is so amazing about this is how much I gained in such a short period of time. I really didn’t get into my new workout and macros until about two weeks ago. If I can do all this in 45 days, imagine what I can do, if I stick to this plan?

I can’t stress enough how important it is to have data helping to support you on your fitness journey. You can’t argue with the numbers and they help keep you honest. But, even more than that, I was focused in a way that I haven’t been before. I knew what I needed to do and I was able to dedicate myself to reaching the goal. For me, the numbers were motivating and inspiring. If there is a future challenge, including scans, I will definitely jump right in again, but even if there isn’t I can seem myself getting these assessments every three to six months just to see my progress.

For me, these last 45 days have been a reboot that I desperately needed for my own fitness journey. I’m excited about the next 45 days and beyond. What kind of wine goes with killing all your workout goals? Why, a glass of bubbly, of course! Prosecco is my go to. But, since it’s not #WineWednesday just yet, that celebration sip will have to wait. Cheers!

  1. It’s so cool to see your hardwork pay off. If positive effort were a macro you would have nailed this long ago. It’s inspiring to know how hard you work to achieve your goals! Yep, proud of my kick ass wife!

    1. Aw, thanks, babe! And, likewise, if washing blender bottles were macros, you would be the champion of all champions! Thanks for your support!
