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:
- Drink 1 gallon of water per day
- Read 10 pages of a book per day (non-fictional and motivational/personal development)
- Follow a diet
- Workout twice a day for 45 minutes, one workout must be out doors
- No cheat meals/alcohol
- 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!
