75 Hard One Week Update

Yesterday marked the end of week one of 75 Hard (for the second time I may add.) It’s hard to put into words exactly what this challenge has done for me over the course of this month, but to put it simply, it’s been incredible. Just look at what it’s done to my body in three weeks.

Besides the obvious physical changes, I’ve really noticed a huge mental shift over the past three weeks. A mental shift that I desperately needed. It feels like “75 Hard” came to me at a time when I needed it most. The funny thing is that I did not go searching for it, it came to me. On my way home from the Cincinnati airport, I was on the phone with my friend Matt. He offhandedly said that he and our friend Dillon had started that day. I said, “shit I’ll join you guys.” I was nervous to start the challenge, but man, I’m so glad I did.

I’ve been more productive over the duration of the challenge, I’m more resilient, and hungrier to achieve things I’ve always desired to achieve. As the rapper, Nas asks, “whose world is this?” It’s mine.

I’m down five pounds since the beginning of the challenge, which puts me at ~185. My goal weight is 175.

Personal Update

On Friday of last week, I got a new job with a fantastic company called “Soccer Shots”. I will be a youth soccer coach for them, coaching two to eight-year-olds. I am super thrilled about this opportunity and simply cannot wait to get started. I love coaching, and I love being around kids. They have such pure and wholesome energy that reminds you how simple life is supposed to be. This is going to be a lot of fun, and I anticipate it helping me continue my development as a young man and also as a coach.

In addition, I have a few more things I’m working on behind the curtain, but nothing that I can share as of now. Stay tuned for big things!

Footy Foster Podcast Episode One

Yesterday marked the debut of my very own podcast! It is available on Spotify and YouTube. My podcast will be my own – meaning that I will talk about whatever is on my mind for that week. This week I talked about Arsenal’s topsy turvy week in the EPL, the Round of Sixteen in the Champions League, and outlined what the USMNT needs to do this week to qualify for Qatar. In addition, I interview my friend Trey and got his perspective on his newfound interest in soccer, amongst many other things. It was a lot of fun, and I cannot wait to get back on the mic for Episode Two!
