Day 1 - Learning from the Past

Weight 190

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

Doug Peterson - Survivor

This ain't my first rodeo! From past experience I have now accumulated knowledge in the form of timing, fishing locations, bait, gear and weather. Today, with relatively minimal effort I was able to catch 3 nice rainbow trout which will serve me well as I embark upon a new Survivor Diet Challenge.

Trout on the first day!
I began my challenge this year at a weight of exactly 190 pounds. I should also get a baseline blood pressure reading. This is the lightest I have ever been to start a SDC which should prove interesting. This partially means that I have been able to keep and maintain a 'somewhat' lower weight than I have had in previous years. Perhaps I'm doing something right in the off-season. Hopefully, it also means that instead of focusing so much on weight loss during this diet, I can concentrate more on health and nutrition. I know for a fact that simply eliminating things like refined sugars, white foods like bread, and other junk will immediately put me on the right track.

Should be another interesting journey... Stay tuned!
