Today marks day 30 of the forty days of discipline. There are ten days left in the challenge. It is time to refocus on these last days and push through by perhaps considering being even more disciplined. I know many guys have been pushing to make workouts or hitting workouts at home at a greater rate than is normal for them. I am seeing some reports of some really impressive weight loss. That is no accident!
However, maybe you haven’t been as strict on your diet or made some “little” choices that weren’t full cheat meals. Maybe you had a Twinkie without claiming it. Jocko calls these “sugar coated lies!” It is the Jester playing with your cravings. You know what to do. Discipline is delaying what you desire now for what you want in the future.
Keep the protein handy. I have tried drinking a protein shake prior to eating dinner when I felt “starving”. This has helped me alleviate the craving to eat multiple plates of food at dinner.
I have one cheat meal left. If you get to 30 workouts you can have another one if you have to have it. There will be lots of extra cheat meals earned however. I know the extra credit runs and rucks prior to workouts are adding up!
Keep on keeping on and stay on the path!
