ICE POOL Challenge! 120 Seconds – I’ll NEVER Do This Again!

Oh, my gosh. Here we go.
Oh, my gosh. Oh, I’m never going to have to do this again. So, check it out. Just finished my workout.
It is early. It’s… I don’t know. It’s just after 7:00 in the morning. But I’m
walking over to the pool right next door. And what I got to do is I got to be a man.
You see… I made a resolution. I made a commitment of what I was doing with my body to take care of it and I broke that
commitment. And I decided in advance what my punishment was going to look like if I
did that. I decided if I break it, I’m going to have to go sit in the cold plunge.
Now, this particular pool has not been heated for a few days. As you can see, we
got a lot of snow around here. I doubt it’s going to be iced over the top. But this
is no ordinary cold plunge. This is a Polar Plunge. And it’s absolutely going to
shock the system. Now, why did I agree to this? Well, frankly it was my idea. And
what I do is I back myself in a corner. When I want something and when I claim I
want something, I got to put something on the line. Because if I don’t put
something on the line, then there’s a risk of me not doing what I’m supposed
to. And reinforcing the idea that that’s okay. And too many of us, we create a
relationship with ourselves that it’s okay to want something but then not need
it. Because the moment is too inconvenient, we need something different,
there’s no punishment. There’s no consequence. Now, this isn’t about beating
up on myself either. This isn’t about, “Oh, Kris, you’re not good enough.” This is the
fact that becoming a successful human being in every capacity in business or
real estate investing or whatever it looks like, for you to be your most
successful self, you do need to realize that you’re going to fail left and right
all the time. Most people beat themselves up and feel
horrible about it. I’ve got to ask myself what’s the lesson. Here’s the lesson:
Don’t go to dinner with a bunch of friends and order three times more food
than is actually required with all sorts of triple breading double-dipped sushi
gone nuts crazy awesome. I’m going to eat more and I’m supposed to.
If I’m going to cut down to this low of a body fat percentage, it’s going to require a
different level of discipline. So, here we are. Oh, my gosh. Here we go. Oh, my gosh. Oh,
I’m never going to have to do this again. [Water Splashing] Why are you in here!? -Because I like sushi. And you ordered way too much. -Oh my… Oh, my gosh. Oh,
my gosh. Dude, you see the steam on that pool? I think it’s got some leftover heat
in it. We got to stay here for a few more minutes, though.
-Yep. Alright. So, here’s a secret: If there’s something that you want really
bad, you can choose whether you’re capable of doing it being motivated by
love or fear. This my friends is what fear looks like. Love would be, “Oh! I’m
gonna reward myself with something. I’m going to give myself something nice.” Here
I’m taking something away. I’m taking away comfort and it doesn’t feel really
good. But you know what? Most of the time, does this work? -Absolutely works. -Most of
the time this actually works. -From the moment I had dinner with you on
Saturday night… -You knew it. -I knew this is happening. -Yeah. -And I have been looking forward to it. Well, guess what? For
the rest of the month, we are not ever doing this again. So, here’s how we’re
going to make it worse: Double or nothing which means triple or nothing. If we go
in again, we have to go in for 3 times the punishment time. How about that?
-So, that would be 1 minute per hundred calories? -Over. -Done.
-You got to get leverage over yourself. You know yourself. You know what is not
worth it. Dude, if I have an extra thousand calories, I got to sit next to
10 minutes in the plunge pool and I better call 9-1-1 and have some a
paramedic sitting on the side like monitoring my heart because it’s going to
get bad. Wow! Alright. We’re back. We’re almost at the end of our or punishment
timeframe. Okay. Oh, my gosh.
