Today is the 40th day of the challenge. Some of you chose to participate in this challenge. Some attempted it and stopped or didn’t do it at all.
To the ones that stayed with it, there are some pretty amazing results. Special TClaps to Roadie, Tool Time, Time Frame, Breaker Breaker, Mayor, and others for some pretty remarkable weight loss and increased focus on their personal goals. To Sargento and Queeeeishce or however you spell it for their hounding me throughout the 40 days about what they can eat. (the rule was…as long as you don’t enjoy it, you can eat it) To Gastone for sharing that picture of a chicken foot in a mason jar that seemed to “trigger” some PAX.
TClaps to Freight, Whoopee, Boudin, and “kotter” Woody for signing up for a March GoRuck in MECA. Due to their additional training, it has been an opportunity to get some extra credit before workouts. Stronganoff and YHC have been taking advantage of that extra training and if you haven’t tried it, walking around with a bunch of weight on your back talking to your old friends is good for the soul. Def Leppard is catching on too as a good rehab for his hip. Strong work!
TClaps to Hipaa, a recent convert to F3 Gastonia. Whoopee gave him the solid EH and under doctors’ orders he has been a posting machine, including already wearing a weighted vest. As an inside joke, Hipaa was challenged to buy the coffee after the Coconut Horse. He stepped up and lead and actually publicized it and we had a sort of mini convergence that day with lots of Rucks and Runners. It is a great routine on Sundays now and other people routinely are picking up the coffee tab. Hipaa is similar to our friend Bulldog. He comes out of nowhere and is all in. Great work!
So as we conclude this challenge, I hope it helped you and you can consider keeping the good habits you formed and stick with them. Self-discipline….journaling, making better food choices, prioritizing your workouts, and supporting each other along the way. Sounds simple doesn’t it?
Before this began I asked myself how I could be more disciplined? The answer was simple. Don’t do it alone. You held me accountable. Thank you!
Stop doing the things that you know are wrong and keep getting after it!
