Hunting Athlete, Cancer Dad: Some surprises along the way.
Some surprises along the way
When I started this little adventure just over four weeks ago, there were certain things I knew would happen. I knew I would lose weight and I knew I would feel better are the two big ones. But the big surprise is how much better I feel and how much weight i have lost. But even more surprising is how much my family has come along on this journey with me. Not only have I cut out soda and junk food, so has my wife. No, she isn't doing the full on 28 Day Challenge, but she is using the same snacks I am and she is exercising more and cutting back on her coffee and soda. But even more so, my oldest son is getting in on it as well. Both boys ask to go on walks, my oldest even ran his first 5K with me yesterday as I pushed my youngest in the stroller. It's unbelievable how proud I am of my son, not only did he run his first 5K, he ran it faster then I ran my first, and unfortunately for him he's built like me. It also feels good knowing last Friday I broke down and had my first soda, which I hated myself for doing but it tasted so good, but when I stepped on the scale this morning I was down almost 3 pounds from Thursday.
