Well the summer is almost over for me- about seven weeks remain. Where does the time go? With so little time left and so much I’ve procrastinated on, it is time to catch up. And there is nothing I love more than cramming 3 months of work into less than half the time. From the marriage of my catching up from procrastination AND my love of extremes comes the latest challenge- “Ten Weeks to a Ripped Body…”
1. Drop 20 lbs in ten weeks.
2. Run a 5k (and finish in the money).
3. Complete 10 minutes of jump rope without pausing.
4. A ripped body (11% body fat or less).
5. Read 25 books on my book list & at least 5 books for each of my classes next semester.
6. Keep up with my Bible studies 6 days a week.
7. Spend 30 minutes a day studying Spanish.
No. 1 RULE: NO procrastination, NO excuses.
Over the next week (starting Monday) I will post a series of articles on reaching these goals which will help me work through my planning and will hopefully help some of you who have similar goals. I will also keep you updated on my progress over the next ten weeks. So what is the plan? The workout program will be no non-sense; the nutritional plan will be a no frills affair; and the reading will most likely turn me into a hermit. But it is all worth it. The body that is elusively just out of my reach because of about 15-20 lbs of visceral and abdominal fat; the work I’ve failed to complete all summer that is only 30 books away from being complete; and the quiet times I’ve been missing are all only ten weeks away. When you think about it, is ten weeks really all that long? It is practically tomorrow.
I hope you will join me on this 10 week journey of discipline, hard work, and intensity. I could definitely use your feedback, encouragement, and input as I run through the next 2 months. And as always if you have any questions, just ask.
