There have been lots of questions about the Make-It-Happen program I'm asking you to join, so here's an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish with this one. We ask you to do hard stuff in here. We want you doing complicated core-to-extremity movements performed at uncomfortable intensities. We want you committing to a lifestyle that will spark your hormonal systems to create long-lasting changes in body fat, bone density, and lean body mass. These changes will give you a massive advantage in the fight against aging and chronic disease.

What I Learned After being Booze-Free for 90 Days. This whole cockamamie idea started on Feb 27th.  It was the Monday after my birthday.  I was looking to challenge myself in some way, because I ask people to challenge themselves all the time as part of my job.  Having something to push against for the short term is always motivating. I was having a beer or two each night, and, to be honest, I was perfectly happy with that arrangement. Yes, I was a little softer around the middle than I liked, but I needed to get uncomfortable for empathy's sake, you know, for my clients. So away I went, and it wasn't easy.
