42: My Answer To Training, Diet, and Gettin’ Stuff Done


My challenge is to complete the following nine items for 42 consecutive days:

  • Set the alarm for the butt-crack of dawn…and get up. No hitting the snooze.
  • Make your bed
  • Get your morning workout in before you check your IPrecious or your computer
  • Eat healthy during the day and log it so that you can track it
  • Drink enough water (in my case – 96 ounces at least)
  • Do something that sucks every day – in this case, I’m saying NO to any sweets as well as all fried food and fast food. (this can be anything you eat that you know isn’t good for you)
  • Get outside and get an afternoon / evening workout in (or get outside and get some fresh air each day, if you aren’t training for anything).
  • Reserve your Move the Needle Hour every night – and USE IT WISELY.
  • Get your sleep in (for me – that means I’m crashing no later than 10pm).

If I miss a single item during these 42 days, I need to start over at Day 1 again….
