1. Oh nice!!! I haven’t decided if I want to do the full year or not. How did the day go? What is your motivation for continuing in, I am curious?

  2. The day was great. I had most of my tasks completed by the early afternoon and was completely finished by 8 and in bed by 10. I am not a morning person, but I am forcing myself as part of my power list, to get up at earlier hours. The challenge is so much easier when you don't sleep half the day away, lol.

  3. I can’t see OP’s response. I don’t think this counts tho. A diet without fresh fruit? That’s ridiculous.

  4. He indicated that it was "hours after dinner," thus constituting a prohibited late-night snack. Not sure I agree, but that's 75 Hard, I guess - if he thinks he failed, then he failed.

  5. Well my first day starts tomorrow-and I am inspired by your progress. Also-cats tend to just be overall menaces to the home but blessings to the heart. lmao

  6. Good luck! I've grown a lot in my realization that everything we do or don't do is a choice that we make. Just choose to get it done and you'll crush it!

  7. Day 59 here. I’ve been stuck at ~18-21lbs lost since week 5. It’s frustrating AF. I’m sure there are a lot of factors, but I think that I definitely need more cardio and more protein to get past this stagnant period.

  8. Man, I really hope my recent progress post isn’t in this category. I’ve been working my ass off, eating healthy, and sleeping better than I have in years - all of which contributed to my losing nearly 19 lbs in the first half of the challenge. No eating disorder over here, thanks.

  9. Some days you’ll crush it. Some days you’ll just check the boxes. Ride it out. You can do it.

  10. For me? I was just tired of being sick and tired. I came back from a vacation and was at my heaviest EVER. I put a message out on Facebook and found two accountability buddies who were willing to do it with me. And, then we started the next day. And, then we have kept at it. We are currently finishing day 37. I’ve never felt better - or more in charge of my depression. The whole planning out and practicing strategy is 1000% not for me. If I’m going to go through the hardships, I want the actual credit of completing 75 Hard days and working my way to the ultimate end goal.

  11. Heartache is the absolute worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life, and I’ve been through breast cancer.

  12. Damn this comment made me cry. I had cervical cancer two years ago. 😅 This breakup feels harder. (Right now). So I agree. I went to an orange theory class today and it was the only time I’ve had any peace this weekend. So I think you’re right, that the healthy choices are a distraction as well as a motivation.

  13. You can do it! I just finished day 31. I’m down 16 lbs and have never felt better. Slow and steady, one day at a time.

  14. I think I actually own this - in my hoard of supplements and things I tend to forget about, lol. Thanks!

  15. Check out 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. Amazing historical anecdotes.

  16. I know this is 2 years old, lol. But, thanks for the recommendation! I just ordered it and will add it to my growing stack of historical non-fiction. [I'm on day 21/75.]

  17. You can do it! I started in January and failed on day 13. I didn't have the motivation to pick it back up until I got home from a vacation in late April. I'm now on day 21 and have never felt better. Cheers!

  18. Oh no! I would try to get as much rest as you possibly can in between tasks. My 18 yo just had a terrible bout of a 24-hour stomach bug that’s been going around. I hope you feel better quickly!

  19. I’m not so sure . No Cheat meals??? A candy bar is a cheat meal, depending on your plan for life right.

  20. I’m not sure what your point is. A diet prescribes and proscribes certain things. If you stay within the confines of the diet, you’re not cheating. But, what the fuck do I know? I’m just a lawyer.

  21. In his book 75 hard, he goes into a little more detail. It’s about no compromises. For example I’m following a keto diet. I started over because I ate a fudge bar, although keto I was looking for a substitute snack. I felt like I was compromising. The ultimate goal of not making excuses for myself and finding a way to get “ what I want “.

  22. Then pick a harder diet, lol. Because that’s not a failure in my mind. And, this doesn’t have to be about deprivation and masochism - but if you want it to be, then spell out those boundaries. Otherwise, your keto fudge bar wasn’t a cheat on your keto diet.

  23. Wow!! Yeah I’m noticing physical change but have yet to really lose any weight 😫 Congrats on your progress!! You are killing it!

  24. Thank you!! Keep working! At the end of the day, the visible change is what matters, right? Your body composition is changing, that’s huge!
