October 30-Day Challenge Update

By JP Chartier

So, here I am two weeks into this “No Alcohol” challenge. I must ask myself, “What the hell was i thinking!?! This has got to be the dumbest challenge ever!” Week one went ok, pretty painless, then week two reared its ugly head!

I’ve had to indear an alcohol-free concert and just yesterday, the toughest day yet for me, an alcohol-free Bucs game. If ever there was a need to get drunk it was yesterday at the Bucs game! I had to sit there and watch the Succanears get their asses handed to them yet again – and this time I had to do it sober, not a good idea.

But I did it! I sat through the whole game, with Eagles fans cheering drunkingly all about me, alcohol-free! And I will somehow or another get through the rest of this month without a drop, and then…

…And then I will never be so stupid again.

I hope your Challenge is going well!


October 30-Day Challenge


By JP Chartier

I thought about what I’d give up all week long, and I was coming up with wimpy stuff like no deep-fried foods, or no fast food, but these just weren’t good enough. So I decided to go BIG!

Those that know me well, know I enjoy an alcoholic beverage from time to time, and I’ve grown quite fond of beer especially, Bud Platinum in particular. My love of the suds has grown into an expensive hobby as of late, plus it’s a pain in the ass carrying all the empty bottles out to the trash!

So here is what I’m taking away:

* I pledge not to drink any beer for 30 days starting October 1st. Hell, I’ll even do better than that – how about this: I pledge not to drink any ALCOHOL for 30 days starting October 1st! (Oh how I will miss the frothy deliciousness of a cold beer)

And this is what I’ll be adding:

* I pledge to add a daily workout routine for atleast 30 days starting October 1st.

So There you have it, my pledges are officially in, are yours?? What did you decide to give up for 30 days? What did you decide to add for 30 days?

Now is the time to step up and do something good for yourself, if only for 30 days.

You deserve it!

Good luck!

30 Day Challenge

By JP Chartier

Are you at a stage in your life where you feel you’re stuck in a rut? If you answered yes, then it’s time you took The 30 Day Challenge. It turns out that 30 days is just the right amount of time to form a new habit, or to lose an old one.

The idea isn’t difficult at all, just add something new to your life for 30 days, something you’ve always wanted to try. And after the 30 days it’s up to you if you want to continue with it, if not – then stop. Simple as that.

So are you up for it? I am and I hope you are too.

If you do decide to try this challenge, one of the things you’ll notice is that instead of the month flying by in a forgotten blur, time will go by much more memorable, and you’ll also notice your self confidence growing.

If you really want something bad enough, you can give it 30 days can’t you? Sure you can! Just remember to start off small, because small sustainable changes are more likely to stick.

The next 30 days are going to pass you by regardless, like it or not, so why not think about something you’ve always wanted to try and do it for the next 30 days.

I’ll begin the next 30 Day Challenge on October 1st.

Are you in?
