    Drew the tag ... time for the preparation

    I drew a CO Bighorn tag this year. Pretty stoked and still can't believe CPW decided to stuff a tag in my pocket.

    With the sudden revelation that hit me like a ton of bricks Friday morning, I've already started the diet/exercise program.

    I've already knocked off 1.6 lbs since Friday and it's only Monday. This week I'll be trying to get these legs stretched and put a couple miles on them. I played some football in the front yard this weekend with my boys and quickly realized I've got to get going on the cardio. Trying not to overdue it early, is always the hardest thing for me. Gotta get settled into a routine and realize I'm not a 20 something year old guy that can just jump in the middle where ever I'd like.

    That's it for now, and looking forward to what the next 4 months has in store.

    side note, I wouldn't worry too much about weight loss per-say.

    I'd focus on the cardio and/or adding some muscle, and let the weight numbers fall where they will.

    Remember graybird, be the tortoise and not the hare. You'll already be on the mountain ahead of all of us who don't have a tag. Good luck.

    Congratulations and some great advise. Work on cardio, get the legs and lungs in good shape.
