Indiana Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy’s 30 Day Challenge

30 Day Challenge

Here at the IBJJA we like to try things out for 30 Days.  You never know what kind of life changes you can make in a single 30 Day Challenge.  For example we offer a 30 Day Free Trail for you to come in and try out our classes!  We challenge you to come in and try it out, we are sure you will love it!

James and AJ’s 30 Day Challenge

So, we decided to go Raw for 30 days.  All Raw!  We are only eating raw fruits and vegetables and raw nuts.  Nothing cooked or processed!  As I write this we are on Day 15 – right about 1/2 way!  I’m not saying it’s easy, but what worth having comes easy?  We feel great!  We decided to do it for the cleanse, but losing weight is a perk!  James is down 12 pounds, and I am down 8!  Not bad in 15 days!

It helps that we have done some research on some  Raw recipes!  It’s better than eating salad for every meal!  Here’s a picture of a pie we made and a brownie with strawberry-banana pudding.

It’s all very good, and good for you!  We’ve been eating the pie for breakfast!  Why not?!?!?  It’s basically fruits and nuts!

The Next 30 Day Challenge

Ah… the game!  This is one of my favorite 30 Day Challenges!  It’s a lot of fun, and it really makes you think!  The idea kind of came from Team Lloyd Irvin.  They can’t say “Mine”.  If they do they owe 10 push-ups.  It doesn’t matter where you are or what’s going on, you have to do your 10!  I was at a Shawn Hammonds concert once (you know, Black Belt Shawn Hammonds – also a Country Music singer!  You should check him out!) and he introduced James in the audience as a “good friend of mine”.  I’m sure Lloyd would be proud to know that he did the push-ups right then and there on stage!  I’m sure the rest of the audience was very confused, but we were cracking up laughing!

So on to our version – where I like the premise, I wanted to make it our own.  So for 30 Days (July 1st – 30th) you can’t say can’t or can not.  It’s such a limiting word/phrase.  It almost becomes a knee-jerk reaction.  Instead of trying something, you automatically say that you can’t.  Find another way – say “It’s hard for me.” or “I’m struggling with this.”  NO MORE CAN’T!!!

So your 30 Day Challenge is to not say CAN’T or CAN NOT from July 1st – 30th.  Any time you do, no matter where you are, what you are doing, who you are with, whatever… if you say – drop and give us 10!

Feel free to get other people in your life in on it!  Be sure to call people out when you hear it!

This 30 Day Challenge – like all the rest – will make you a better person for having done it!
