Technically, he’s at Day 5 now; I’m just a little slow getting him his own post.
Double J (also known to comment under the alias James Eberheardt), contacted me not too long ago, asking me who is this Roc Wieler, could I help him with his nutrition, and to lose some fat.
His goal? He’s going to be 40 in two years, has a beautiful, young new girlfriend, and wants his daughter to stop mistaking him for a teddy bear.
Of course I offered to help.
I’ve had nothing but respect for Double J since meeting him years ago. We both work within the same industry. He is a lecturer, teacher, professor, as well as owning his own mobile development company. In short, he’s a really a smart guy. In smart, he’s a really short guy. Ha!
We got together earlier this week, and spent just over three hours making notes. I taught him about nutrition, though he already has been eating the right foods for the most part; it was more about portion control and when to eat, like it is for so many of us. We spent a good hour going over many of the exercises found in the Roctoberfest 30 day challenge.
I told him I would break him and help him rebuild himself. I told him he would probably hate me. He steadfastly refused.
I remember the text after his Day 1 workout. “I kinda hate you right now.” I laughed a lot.
Day 2 resulted in the text “I hate mountain climbers.” Everyone does, so I laughed some more.
On Day 3 came the text saying “I feel great!” For that, I just smiled.
Please don’t make any mistake. I don’t laugh at other people’s expense. I’ve been through it myself. I laugh, because I’m so proud of people making these hard and challenging changes to their life, and I can’t do anything but be filled with merriment at that thought.
Keep at it, Double J, and now you have your own thread to post in!
