30-Day Fitness Challenge Results

I mentioned in this post that I participated in a 30-day fitness challenge with a few of my co-workers. Today, I am sharing my results. Here's what I did for 30 days straight (no rest days in between)

The results: At the end of the challenge, I lost almost 3lbs and the BFP (body fat percentage) went down almost 1%. For someone my size, 3 lbs is a lot of weight. Keep in mind that I lost the weight over the course of 30 days. Losing weight wasn't the only goal (although I am happy that I reached my desired weight). I participated in this challenge to push myself and hopefully, working out regularly becomes a habit.

My thoughts/what I learned from the challenge:
- It was tough (especially towards the end of the challenge)
- There were good days and bad days
- The challenge does work
- I become physically stronger and feel like I am in the best shape of my life
- I can customize the challenge to fit my fitness level. One of my co-workers walked everyday (between 5-7 miles per day for the entire month and he lost 15 lbs)
- I am more aware of the type of food I consume and how much
- It challenged my endurance and motivation

What's next?
There are so many fitness challenges available online, you just have to find one that works for you and your fitness level. What's next for me? I am currently training for a quarter marathon in August and a half marathon in October with a few friends. My main goal this time is to improve my pace. I hope to break the 2 hour mark in my next half marathon.
