People ask me all the time how I lost my 60/70 pounds…..losing the weight is tough but keeping it off is another thing.
Besides staying true and consistent to habits that helped get the weight off, such as water, sleep, nutrition, training, one thing I focus on is what I like to call/refer to as “staying ready challenges.” I try to do some sort of “staying ready” work out or training regimen 2 to 5x a month. This just holds me accountable to staying into shape, eating correctly, and is a good randomized 2 to 5x a month. This just holds me accountable to staying into shape, eating correctly, and is a good randomized tester to see where I stand throughout the year! Not to mention just in case someone asks me to come run a 5k for a charity or do some sort of event on a short notice, I won’t have the excuses lined up, won’t hurt myself, and will perform pretty well!
The idea here is to randomly go for a 20 mile bike ride one day. Maybe do 100 Dead Lifts for time, the next “staying ready challenge.” A 6 mile hike the next “staying ready challenge.” Or for instance what I did today where I randomly ran 5 miles….. Let me know if you have any questions!
