Hey Jeff, welcome to NF and the challenge! Looks like you have great goals, are you planning on giving up soda cold turkey? I did that a few years ago, but I've seen some people phase it out over these 6 weeks. It's up to you, just thought I'd give you some options =]

I've already cut way back on the amount of soda that I drink. The stuff is expensive and neither my fiance nor I keep it in the house regularly. so eliminating it all together will probably be an easy goal. Thanks for being interested in my challenge goals.

Well, day 1 of the challenge was a success. I surprised myself and did 1.5 miles on the treadmill during the cardio portion of my trip to the gym. That is already half of a 5k -more or less-! Not bad for a 300+ lb couch potato. I had actually started working on the President's Challenge last week -before I discovered nerdfitness.com. Yesterday I completed my first full week towards earning that award.

Week 1 is gone, and quite successfully so! I started working on the President's Challenge/PALA+ about a week before this challenge began. As of yesterday, I am on track not only to complete that, but to exceede the requirements! I've gone from couch potato to doing 1.5 miles on the treadmill a day! Rather than working to increase speed or time on the treadmill, I am steadily increading the incline for my 1.5 miles!

I've had one soda in the past week, and I didn't even finish it! I can honestly say good riddance!

Since I'm consistantly doing 1.5 miles a day right now, practically half of a 5K, I've no doubt that I'll meet my goal of run/walking a 5k by the end of this challenge.

My fiance and I are doing our pre-marital counseling and enjoying the heck out of it!

As of Today, I am 2 weeks away from completing the President's Challenge/PALA+. The weeks run (for me) Wed-Tue and so I expect to be finished on Sept. 9th 2012. Although, participants have 8 weeks to complete the award so I could take until Sept 25th. I do not plan to!

I've had 3 diet sodas since the challenge began, all because unsweetened tea was not available and I did not realize it until aftwer I had paid for a beverage.

I'm now doing 1.5 miles on the treadmill at a pretty steep incline dailly. I'll be ready to go to the track and try 5k soon!
