I was just thinking about the first 30 days program and how truly hard it is to change ourselves.
We all have noble intentions. None of us like to admit that we are not at our best, whether it’s a bit of flab, creaky joints, out of breath all the time; we all like to think we’re at the top of our game.
To be broken, as I have alluded to many times, is a difficult experience to go through.
30 days of strict nutrition throws our bodies into shock. It isn’t used to being disciplined.
30 days of intense exercise when we haven’t exercised can be more than our systems allow, and will shut us down at times.
30 days of life changing habits, no matter how hard, can benefit us a lifetime.
And yet I’ve been reviewing all the Day 0 threads. They are mysteriously silent. It makes me sad. Daemon, Harlon, Double J, Alex, the rest; where have they gone?
Did they give up? Was it too much for them?
I wish we knew. I wish they would post in order that I can reach out to them, offer encouragement, offer more instruction.
There’s really no excuse with today’s technologies. I’ve started doing FaceTime sessions, Skype sessions, whatever is needed to demonstrate good form for people. I’ve started filming videos for every single exercise within the First 30 program. I’m even going to go back and edit it so that it requires no equipment at all.
What’s your excuse? Why aren’t there more Day 0 posts here? Where are the ones already committed?
Have I failed them? Have they failed themselves?
We may never know.
