I set fire to the rain

Today is the day.  Not tomorrow.  Not the next day.  Not next week.  Today is the beginning my healthy new life.  For so long, I have been so fearful of living, ever since I thought I was going to do die.   There was no need to work out.  There was no need to eat healthy.  There was no need to have a healthy lifestyle.  There was no need for financial stability.  There was no need for a stable relationship.  And so on, and so on.

Well, my epiphany finally arrived. I can look better.  I can work harder.  I can do more.  I can BE better.  That’s what this primal challenge is all about.  Going back to the roots of ourselves.  Without your health, you have nothing.  While no one can promise that working out, eating healthier, and having a healthy lifestyle and mental state  will actually extend your life (since accidents happen), I can guarantee that the statistics are more in your favor then this guy.  So I decided to get my shit together… even though I think I could eat more pizza rolls then that dude.

Here is what it looked like last night spread out while organizing:

And here it is after:

My overall goal is the “180@30 plan.”  180 pounds at 30 years old.  I will update everyone weekly on my progress.  This is why I have 3 of these printouts on my fridge, on my bathroom mirror, and near my bed.  (for the ladies…)

Whatever your rain may be, set fire to it.  Because you never know when it’s time for your fire to go out…

    Awesome Scott! 180@30 sounds like a great goal. You’ll have to let us know when exactly your 30th birthday is, and how much weight you’re losing between now and then. Keep it up!
