There are only two weeks left of the Body Transformation Challenge at the gym and I have to say I’ve loved it. Week 5 was my plateau week apparently with no additional body fat loss or muscle gain but I did lose a little extra weight.

I’ve never been one for weekend workouts. They are something that have only happened on a rare occasion when I’ve felt guilty for slacking off during the week or if I’ve been oddly motivated. With this challenge I’ve been expected to do 6 classes a week and the easiest way for me to do that was including a Saturday class as well as the 5 Monday to Friday classes. Yesterday I did two back to back classes on a Saturday morning and nearly stayed for a third. They were both very different in their nature so don’t worry, I’m in no danger of becoming an obsessive fitness nut tagging instagram with #fitspo.

I’ve been taking progress photos once a week since I started but on Friday I decided to take a locker room photo on a whim and it’s the first one I’ve really noticed a difference. I’m going to save the before and after comparisons for the end of week eight with final weigh in and body scan.

My biggest fear for this challenge was to get to the end of the 8 weeks and not have made any noticeable changes. There is still a lot of room for improvement but I’m going to be heading to Europe feeling fitter and stronger and better about myself.
