The weekend is often the hardest time to stay focused on Phase Two of the Live Hard program. Perseverance is essential. I just finished Day 13 tonight. Because I have less scheduled on the weekends, I must be more intentional about planning everything out. It sounds crazy doesn’t it? I have more time but have a harder time? 

Phase Two is the same as 75 Hard but for only 30 days. The items below seem easy especially if you don’t have anything scheduled, right? Each day I must accomplish the following: 

  • Two 45-minute workouts a day (at least three hours apart)
  • One workout must be outdoors
  • Follow a specific diet
  • No alcohol or cheat meals
  • 1 gallon of water
  • Take a progress picture
  • Read 10 pages of a Personal / Business development book

Who else has this problem when you have nothing scheduled? I get more done when I have a full schedule. Maybe it’s because I’m more focused, driven, and dedicated to getting it all done? On the weekends, especially if I don’t have anything scheduled, I feel like I have plenty of time. Today, I was organizing my home office by going through a lot of papers. I spent four hours getting through it all and I still have a ways to go in order to get the office where I want it to be. By the time I finished and came up for air, it was after 7:00pm and I still had to get my second workout in for the day. Sigh. 

It’s not a bad thing but something I recognize in myself. I then know that unless I really practice perseverance in getting items done they just won’t happen. I challenge anyone reading this article to look at your own life. Are you persevering through challenges or do you simply put it off until tomorrow? That’s one of the best things about 75 Hard. Putting it off until tomorrow means I start fresh at Day one. I am NOT going to let that happen!
