“We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret” — Jim Rohn
I am not traveling for an entire month. I can’t recall the last time this happened, not in the last three years at least.
I’ve decided to adopt the HARD75 protocol for 30 days to take better care of my body and health.
Technically you should do it for 75 days, but 30 is a more realistic goal for me, as I will be traveling again for most July.
I’m excited about the no alcohol and diet discipline and fortitude as these are my weak links.
I have no problem working out and lifting heavy things.
For the last 12 years, I have had at least one drink a week, which is a terrible habit when you factor in the compounding aspect of it all.
If you don’t take care of yourself, no progress will ever be made.
Eliminating alcohol seems wonderful, better sleep, and less money wasted.
Talk to me on a Friday evening after a brutal week. I am confident that this time I will prevail over my bad habits.
Even when I cook my meals, I find ways to destroy my diet.
Adding too much butter, olive oil, or Parmigiano Reggiano (I love it!) into everything I cook.
Until July 1st I will:
We’re approaching a final first sprint for the public launch of Atman, and not traveling for a month, combined with a protocol that comes with pure discipline, is going to be fantastic.
Thanks to Sarah Tulin for keeping up with her Hard75 and inspiring me to follow her path into mental toughness while being my accountability partner in my challenge.
Cultivating good habits is the easiest way to build yourself into a man of character. They start with your diet, personal hygiene, and exercise.
2013 was a very interesting year for multiple reasons. Probably one of my major victories was losing almost 20 lbs (approximately 10Kg).
