First day of the rest of my life

I did it.  Day one is in the bag.  Its the first day of the rest of my life and I dragged my lazy bumb out of bed and ran/walked 25 min and 1.24 miles in 24 degree weather and I FEEL GREAT.  Okay..  I mentally feel great, but that kicked my trash! 

Jen was great, she woke up with me and worked out in the house.  (She would run with me but we cannot leave the little ones home alone.)  When I got back we both stretched together.  It was an amazing feeling knowing I did what I did this morning and my wife was there cheering me on.

Here is a few Day 1 Facts.  I weighted myself last night and was at 330.9.  After my run I was at 326.5.  I know that is a lot of water but I will take it!  Also 50 Cent "In da club" is a great song to start running to.  :)

I will be posting my soon to be "before" pics today.  We took them last night. I will also post my couch to 5k 9 week program and my meals for the week! 

Everyone thank you for helping me with this!  I can lose that weight and who knows...  Maybe a Marathon. :)

That's awesome you're doing this! I want to and have been half-heartedly trying to get ready to do mini-marathon and my goal would be to eventually do a triathlon.

Good luck with it buddy!

Make sure and stretch really well after every day, it helps a lot so you don't get too sore.

I like to run to Shakira my hips don't lie. Fast beat and it reminds me that I'm running for my hips.

I agree that it is SUPER difficult to get out of bed, and then in freezing weather at that, awesome!
