Hey MFP, I’m starting 75HARD on Wednesday.

Just wondering if anyone else has done it and how it went?

Cheers,

    I do the reading part of it every day. Does that count?

    Haha. Love it!😅

    I do the diet part. Because I eat.

    No audiobooks? Nope. And the drinking of a gallon of water? Nope

    Sorry :smiley: This challenge is a bit too random, and partially also unhealthy. Drinking a gallon of water is too much and might flush out important electrolytes. 2x sport per day? Most people won't manage without getting injured. And starting again if you had one M&M? That's just a bit silly. In my opinion of course.

    Yes, I started yesterday.
    You can add me as a friend if you want, for accountability.

    This is not entirely true. I drink a gallon or more of water daily and have for years. if you work and sweat you need to do so... maybe not if you are sedentary all day, but everyone has different needs

    Is it 90 minutes of exercise every day or are there rest days built in?

    The way I read the program is 90 minutes per day, 7 days a week.

    Yes, one of your workouts has to be outside and can be a walk. So 45mins of walking and 45mins of bodyweight exercises or stretching/core or lifting.

    You wouldn’t lift 7 days a week.

    Hmm interesting, I can't do that with my schedule but I'm on my feet all day at work.

    I did it. there were a few days I asked myself why.. but overall I gained some great habits. My outside workout was walking every day, that taught me not to make excuses about weather or planning and I listened to some great podcasts, and my dog was super happy. My second workout was weights, yoga, or YouTube videos. I was not there to get injured, that's for sure. The avoiding sugar and alcohol was very helpful, I had gotten in a bad habit of having a drink every night after dinner that I needed to break. Having a time limit on it (75 days) gave me a target to strive for and feel like it wouldn't last forever. I already read and drink water, some of my water went in my protein shake, and hot tea, coffee ,and green powder. so it didn't seem like too much after the first few days. I stuck to my diet which was IIFYM so that was flexible. I had a couple of sugar free treats that fit. strangely the worst part was taking the pics. I hate pictures of myself, but doing it every day made me get over it and focus on the positive as time went by. I needed a reset, because I felt I had lost my mojo and I liked the mentality of me vs myself in order to get my self respect back. So if you need a kick in the pants and some consistency I don't think it's a bad thing to do. it doesn't have to be CRAZY like everyone makes it out to be.

    I read about it. The rules were random and there is no ability to customize for your own lifestyle and preferences, which I consider to be important for any weight management or fitness program.

    You don’t have to stick to it rigidly. I’m taking the concept and outline but making it my own.
