So yea...I need to go on a diet. And since I have tried it and can't seem to stay on it by myself I have decided that in order to hold myself accountable and ask for help with dieting, I am going to blog daily on my eating habits and exercising.

I have never dieted before, I have never had a reason to. But over last summer I gained 45 pounds in 3 months. I was able to drop 20 of it in the fall last year but I have hit a wall so to speak on the losing weight front. I am not at 165 and really want to get back down to 140. So I need to lose another 25 pounds and keep it off. So I know that means seriously rearranging the way I eat and exercise. I need to get my lazy ass out of bed in the morning and go running. And I HATE HATE HATE running. But working out at my dojo is to hit or miss with my current crazy schedule. The only thing I can rely on is that I can make time in the morning to go run. And I will start tomorrow morning. I have no idea how far I will be running but I figured I will start with 30 minutes and go from there.

As far as the diet goes, I am going to cut out any liquids but water and one soda a day. Only because right now I can't handle the headaches that go with cutting out caffeine, I have too many migraines that happen on a regular basis to begin with. But I can cut it down to one a day and change to diet soda. I will also cut out all junk food and fast food. Any other suggestions?? I know that eating more salads, vegetables and fruit is good but other than that I am not really up on all the things I should cut out to increase my chances of losing weight.

I will also being going to Seattle at the end of this month to volunteer for Emerald City Comic Con and will be staying at my sisters. The hard part will be not using my vacation as an excuse to stop blogging, running or dieting. There is no reason why I can't run, my sister lives in a safe, suburban neighborhood. And I will have to chance to hit up a grocery store for healthy snacks and food to eat at the convention. So any thoughts on ways to avoid slacking would be helpful too.
