Blogger’s note: Please see our updated views based on reference to Rachel Hollis.
Friday’s blog hit a nerve with some of you. Lots of people, and by lots, I mean a few, contacted me or commented that they wanted to join the #last90days challenge. I have to say many of you agreed to it, but it felt like you did so with a begrudging attitude. You know who I am talking about. The eye rolling and the sighing while you told me you really wanted to “try” and do it. That’s not commitment, people.
The comments and texts I received varied, but most were unhappy with the idea of getting up one hour earlier. I’m not thrilled either. Let’s face it, none of this stuff is EASY. If it was easy there wouldn’t even be a LIST! Some of you are already trying to negotiate a new list. Seriously? You can’t negotiate something you haven’t even tried.
Obviously, if you signed up with our girl Rachel Hollis at thehollisco.com you have already committed yourself to the challenge and will be receiving all the hype you need. However, I am wondering if anyone is interested in a closed group of friends to commiserate with during these 90 days? We could discuss it on our Lowi and G page, but maybe everyone doesn’t want to hear about how many times you had to pee when drinking a gallon of water, you know?
This would be a place for us to discuss the struggles, the wins, our ability to overcome and encourage one another if we are having a tough time.
If you are interested, I have started a private group called Lowi & G’s Last 90 Days and we will be there to cheer each other into the new year. Request to join if you’re interested and we can support one another during these next 3 months.
Still not sure if you are interested? What’s stopping you? Doubt? Fear? Comparison? Lack of commitment? Small bladder? I get it. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water is going to cause a lot of bathroom breaks, but these are just excuses that we use to create a huge obstacle in our road to a better YOU, ME, US.
I say this not from a place of absolute confidence. I say this knowing when my alarm goes off at 5:15 Tuesday morning the only thing that’s going to get me out of bed is knowing all of you are struggling right alongside of me. Misery loves company? Maybe, but I’d rather think of it as strength in numbers. Let’s focus on our glowing, detoxified skin, svelte bodies and our mental well being as we finish 2019 strong!
We are going to roll into 2020 like rockstars!
Who is with me? Let’s finish the year strong and start 2020 already working toward our goals.
Sunshine & Sarcasm,
