Congratulations to our 2020 Fall 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Male 1st place $10,000 cash prize winner Alexander Arango @alex._motivates
This is his story
“ For as long as I can remember I would RARELY take my shirt off anywhere; I was embarrassed and uncomfortable with myself around people because of my own insecurities. When the pandemic hit and everything shut down in NY, I fell into a pattern of laziness and gluttony because of the “shelter in place” NY state mandated. I became aware of the pattern right around when gyms were opening again and I decided that I wanted to change my life for the better. I saw the 1Up Transformation challenge on IG and the guidance of food and workouts really motivated me and helped me take off!
During the challenge I felt happy with my effort and progress everyday. I did my best to be aware of my thoughts because I’d lie to myself saying: “Alex, you’re not going to win, why even try” and “I can’t do this”. I believed these lies because in my past I have had trouble following through with my goals. I overcame the negative self-talk by writing positive affirmation every other day. When I felt down and wanted to give up, I’d tell my support group because they held me accountable, supported and motivate me. My biggest obstacle was before the challenge started, because I was afraid to do my best and still not win. I told my mom and she said: “if you win, awesome, if you don’t, you would still win because you would have given your personal best and no one can take that from you”.
Through this process I learned so much about Nutrition: Counting macros, weighting food, serving proper portions. I also learned how to do HIIT cardio and I love it.
I created small goals each day to help me get closer to a healthier lifestyle. First, I logged my food to see what I was intaking daily, then everyday after that I replaced one unhealthy food group with something healthy. These small achievable goals allowed me to stay consistent and empowered me when I started seeing results in the mirror. Start small and stay consistent!”
