75 Day Challenge? Why not?!

75 Day Challenge? Why not?!

Somehow I always find myself doing some type of fitness or diet challenge. I think it’s just in my Capricorn nature at this point. This next challenge that I’m embarking on (starting March 1, 2021) will be my longest challenge thus far. I actually got the idea from one of my friends and decided that I should see if I could challenge myself as well. The name of the challenge is 75hard. You can read about all of the details on 75hard.com. The creator of this program is Andy Frisella, and he created it to be more than a fitness challenge, even though it is fitness related. This challenge is marketed as a “TRANSFORMATIVE MENTAL TOUGHNESS PROGRAM“. After checking out the website for myself and listening to my friend’s journey, I decided that I wanted to do this for myself as well. I am living in a new area and only know a small amount of people here, so this if the perfect time to focus on me and my goals.

The program is 75 days long, which is longer than any of the challenges that I have ever done. I usually do 30 day fitness challenges, even then I still cheat a little on those challenges. This time I plan to follow the entire program and do all required days. My goal for this program is to propel me even further into this next decade of my life. I want to start my 30s off with a bang, and finish it the same way as well. I feel like this program will allow me to do that. The requirements of this program are as followed:

  1. Drink 1 gallon of water per day
  2. Read 10 pages of a book per day (non-fictional and motivational/personal development)
  3. Follow a diet
  4. Workout twice a day for 45 minutes, one workout must be out doors
  5. No cheat meals/alcohol
  6. Take a progress picture daily

Sounds easy enough right? I’m sure it will be too. The toughest part about this program is going to be consistency and planning. Once I complete this, I know I can complete anything. I’m excited to see the outcome of this program and I will be sure to keep you guys updated on my progress. I may modify it a little bit to fit into my lifestyle. For example, if I don’t make the full gallon of water everyday the minimum for me will be 3 liters and I MAY drink one glass of red wine per week. I’m probably going to try not to drink any for at least the first mont though, we shall see. Following a diet isn’t as restrictive as it sounds either. For example, I probably will just cut out pork and beef and not cheat on that. I love bacon and the occasional steak, so that will be tough. All in all, I think it will be a good mental and physical challenge, and I’M READY! If you would like more information for yourself be sure to check out the link. He has a podcast and a book that goes with the program as well!

Let’s Catch Up!

Let’s Catch Up!

Hey ya’ll! So, I am currently in “quarantine” in Guam. It’s not actual quarantine, but I am still on Restriction of Movement (ROM) for the first 14 days of my being here. I can’t be around any groups of people and have to maintain social distancing if I’m outside of my room, but I can go workout outside. But don’t fret, I took a COVID test before getting on the plane and I tested negative. Anywho, I just came off the longest leave that I’ve taken while being in the military. I was home for almost 30 days….I will never do that again. It wasn’t all bad, I just don’t need to take that much of a break at home anymore. 12 days max from here on out.

I was able to spend time with some family and friends, however, I didn’t even see everyone whom I thought I would have. This last trip home was very eye-opening for me. I was able to see who really care about me and who doesn’t. I won’t go into much detail about that, but I definitely learned a lot. The older you get, the more you realize that it doesn’t matter if people are family or not, the people that rock with you, will rock with you no matter what. I’ve always been the type that likes to keep people connected, but I don’t know if that’s the direction that I want to go moving forward. I’m really only going to deal with the people that deal with me.

Any who, I am TOTALLY excited to be in Guam. I am scheduled to be stationed here for three years. I say “scheduled”, because that may change after I drop my package to commission and get picked up to become a commissioned officer, I’m speaking that into existence right now. Becoming an officer has always been my goal. I’ve been in the Air Force for 11 years now, and I’m finally ready to make that jump.

In a nutshell, I am excited to be able to settle down here. The first month of 2021 was great. I had family time and a lot of time to reflect on my plans for the year. I’m excited to move and find my next home. I feel like this place will be really good for me in this time of my life and I can’t wait to take you all on the journey!

Here are a few pics from my trip home:
