I’m trying this…75 Days of HARD CHOICES…….I guess this is a thing.
I’m still going to Vancouver, I’m still going to run the BMO 8K run/race, and I’ve just stepped up to work the Marathon Health and Wellness Expo while I’m there…….
I still have goals for the summer….and 8K on May 1st, a 10K on May 15th…..a half in August (with a lot in-between) and a full in the fall in Victoria….
This 75 is all about a reset…I’m going to think about it for a few days, and then make a hard effort starting this weekend….the actual program involves a gallon of water a day, following a diet, work out twice a day, 45 minutes each, and one workout outside, no alcohol, read 10 pages of a non-fiction book a day, a progress picture everyday…….I’ve added cut out added sugar, and a huge cut back on coffee to just one cup a day (getting rid of that will be for the next 75 days)…..
I’ve actually look yesterday at myself in the mirror and checked out my weight, and really didn’t like what I saw…..I’m not a huge fan of that scale, it doesn’t really measure anything, and that selfie with no shirt on…I thought I was fit, but nope, I’m fat…way too fat……and no, I’m not going to post that pix……..and yes, I am old, older, 63……
I thought this was me
my main goal is to become 10 pounds lighter..will I shrink and get buff, or stronger?…
I may modify the 75 days…..the gallon of water concerns me, but more water wouldn’t hurt, and less coffee would be a good thing too, or maybe better, no coffee…….no sugar for sure….and the working out, I can do 45 minutes a day, sure, twice a day, probably not…….but 75 workouts in 75 days, even better (I like doing lots of stuff) and I’ve decided no skip the dishes for, well, forever, but at least for 75 days to begin…….
Today’s Thursday, let’s begin……Friday?………sure….and I’m going to add 1 cold shower a day, and a walk every day for 75 days too….that’s a lot of stuff……
anyway, yeah, 75 Day Hard Challenge……..let’s do this?
