100 Mile Challenge

Starting June 1st, 2010 thru August 31st, 2010 I am taking on the 100 Mile Food Challenge. What this means is that ALL food consumed needs to be grown/raised within a 100 mile distance from my house. Yes I can see this could be a little more expensive then going to Costco and buying in bulk. But with the summer season starting I think this could really be possible. Plus EVERYTHING will be fresh, and alot more healthlier, esp if I can buy organically.

Now I just have to find me a freezer to store my grass-fed meat.

Round 2 Day 2

So after taking the last 25 or so days off, and kinda cheating. I am officially back on course. I just finished my second day of eating on plan. And it was really hard to not stop on my way home and get a cheat. I can say tho I only gained 2.5 pounds in 25 days, wish I had lost that and a bit more, but I have learned that if I want to succeed I need to stick with the plan. If I can lose over 75+ pounds in 227 Days I think I can stick with it another 227 days.

On a good note: After 72 Days since Surgery, I ran my first 1/4 mile non stop. I can't remember the last time I did that, even prior to surgery, I think its been over 10 years.

The goal for the next 2 months is to stay on course, and lose another 20+ pounds before I go backpacking.
