30 Days 30 Posts: Day 3

Day three! So far so good with the daily blog posts but I really flubbed the whole plant-based eating challenge. I'm on track with it today though. It helps that I have been a little pissed off all day. A bit of anger always seems to help fuel the willpower for some reason. 🤣 Anywho, while I'm on the subject of challenges I decided I'd make a quick post about some of my go-to sources when I need a little inspiration. If you are looking for ideas to improve your life or for a little encouragement or enticement these blogs and podcasts might be worth checking out.

First off in you're interested in doing your own 30 day blog (or any social media, really) challenge here are a few links:

Here are some motivational blogs and podcasts:

You can't have a inspirational/self-improvement list without Tim Ferriss in it. I've read and enjoyed both his 4-Hour Body and 4-Hour Chef. Although I don't listen to his podcast religiously the episodes I have listened to were informative and held my interest.

Matt Frazier has been around the self-help block once or twice (Damn, I really need a new idiom for "having experience" 🤣). Matt is an ultra-marathoner and has written a couple of books. I really enjoy the No Meat Athlete podcast with Matt and co-host Doug Hay.

Rich Roll struggled with drug and alcohol addiction until he was 31. Although he got sober he was about 50 pounds overweight. At 40 he decided to turn his life around and became a consummate plant-fueled ultra-endurance athlete. I really like and recommend Rich's podcast but some of the episodes (especially the earlier ones) can get a little too "woo-woo" for my tastes. He has excellent interviews with people like Tim Ferriss, Matt Frazier and Moby which make up for it.

Well, I think that will do it for this post. I'll be back tomorrow to do it all again! 😁


  1. Rich Roll’s story sounds remarkably similar to Leo Babauta’s (@zen_habits / Zen Habits blog). I was introduced to him thru this podcast

    BTW if you enjoyed that episode the interviewer left that show and started his own called the Jordan Harbringer Show. I highly recommended it as well.

  2. Damn, sorry I didn't see your comments until now. I've heard Leo when he was a guest on No Meat Athlete before. I just sub'd to both podcasts and queued up the Leo Babauta episode. Thanks for the recommendations. 👍


Happy New Year 2019!
