Today marks the 15th day of the 40 Days of Discipline. Anecdotally I have heard a great many positive things from the PAX about their efforts at being on the path. Excellent work!
There are some PAX losing some serious weight each week thus far and changing habits. Several PAX and probably more are 15 for 15 on the daily workouts.
Some of the PAX are eating some serious power foods that I don’t how to pronounce. Gastone is eating chicken feet(see pic above). SLAW is ordering quiooonwaaaah and brussel sprouts. Stroganoff left fried shrimp and fish on the table and ate a potato and salad instead. These gents are holding the line! TimeFrame is getting faster and stronger. Roady is leading the way!
Tip of the week….The thought goes that you can’t take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself.
Each day besides eating right and getting on with your workout, schedule time for yourself to do something just for you. Meditate on what you are thankful for. Think about something that brings you joy. Play the guitar. Read a book. Sit in silence. Enjoy some hot tea (honey and lemon instead of sugar). Play a board game with your kids. Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Do something for someone else with no expectation for anything in return.
I can predict that many of us will be tempted by superbowl foods and beverages tomorrow. Sargento has already declared a cheat meal and he has earned it (15 for 15 workouts thus far). My advice…don’t go to the superbowl party hungry. If you declare your cheat meal that is no problem. However, be mindful that you can’t out train a bad diet so don’t let your exercise gains go to waste by eating/drinking your way back to mediocrity! You versus you!
I am encouraged and inspired by your efforts. Have a great week and feel free to post tips or encourage others who are taking this seriously to improve on the little things that will add up to big things!
