And the 2013 for the fitness challenge is… Drum roll please… dadadadadadadadadadadadadad boom cha… Mike!!! Tears, hugs, and high fives, along with champagne and a speech!!! Ok… not quite…. maybe more like a simple email went out to a couple of coworkers and one person said congratulations, But it definitely made me realize how competitive I am as I felt way too accomplished ahah. I knew I worked hard this year and I’m very happy that it paid off. Not only did I win some prize money but I won a lot of bragging rights. Come to think of it I need to rub it in a little more to my coworkers. It’s all in good fun.
Winning the fitness challenge was a lot of fun but also a lot of work. A lot of people ask, How do you win the fitness challenge? It’s all based on outward appearance and transformation from beginning to end. At the beginning of the challenge I was very out of shape but by the end I was almost in the best shape of my life. I was doing soccer, hot yoga, running, lifting, walking, crossfit, ab workouts and really got after it. The difficult part for me was still getting a six pack to really shine through. I believe it was mainly due to nutrition. But at the end of the day I won!! What a great year.
