Welcome to Episode #150! Today I'm going to be talking about #75HARD. A little over 3 months ago I randomly came across a podcast, Episode #290 of The MFCEO Project by Andy Frisella: A 75 Day Guide To Winning The War With Yourself. In it he launched his program, #75HARD, which has now become a worldwide movement.
I decided shortly after listening to this episode to start the programme myself. There was just something about Andy's energy, his message that resonated with me. A little under 3 months later I've completed it. A massive thank you to everyone who's supported me on this journey, and especially to those who have joined me on #75HARD.
The program was a mental endurance challenge - with physical benefits.
👉🏻 150 workouts in 75 days
👉🏻 75 days of Keto - which I hated - with zero cheat meals
👉🏻 75 days without alcohol
👉🏻 75 gallons of water drunk
👉🏻 750 pages of entrepreneurial/self help books read
👉🏻 Progress pic taken each day
heart rate: Down from 66 to 50
🏋️♀️ Body Fat: Down 7% from 24.7 to 17.7%
🍩Weight: Down 1.5 Stones from 12:12 to 11:7
🤸🏻♂️Energy: Off the chart. Simply don’t get tired anymore. No post lunch-induced coma at work
🧖♂️Skin: Clear complexion:Not red or blotchy anymore
🎙Reached the #1 goal I set for myself in 2019 - getting a #1 ranked podcast in iTunes
bigger & set bigger goals - when I started this challenge my aim
was to merely finish & lose a stone. If I realised what I was
actually capable of, I would have set far bigger Smart goals.
👊🏻I’ve gotten this far in life with using only a fraction of my potential
👊🏻I am 100% in control of my success & failure - in anything I choose
👊🏻I’m actually mentally tougher than I thought
👊🏻The harder things are, the more I’ve learnt to embrace them & actually enjoy them
👊🏻It’s nothing to do with proving anything to anyone. It’s all about proving the voice in my head is wrong.
👊🏻I’ve been physically more tired than I’ve ever been, but the most mentally awake & focused
Two things I found out I love:
Running - against other people & the clock. Developed an addiction
to Poole parkrun, started 6 weeks ago & so far knocked 8 minutes+
off my PB
🧘🏼♂️Yoga - with no other people & no clock! Especially The Strength Temple with Richie Norton courtesy of Fiit
I wish I’d dreamt bigger & set bigger goals to achieve.
💆🏻♂️ Wish I’d had more than the 1 sports massage my wife Carly Chisnall kindly booked me, as I battled, at times, excruciating lower back pain
There is a next! I’ll be releasing a podcast about it this Wednesday- link in the comments below if you’d like to subscribe in advance⬇️ plus the link to the man who started #75HARD Andy Frisella from 1st Phorm
Massive Thankyou to all the support I’ve had, and especially to those who have taken up the challenge too💪🏻
