Did I cut my hair too short?
A geek, in his natural habitat

I'm finally doing it!

That's right, I'm getting serious about dieting.  My friend Joe forwarded a link to SparkPeople to me.  It is an online dieting site that creates a diet for you according to your goals.  It also plans your meals for me (which is super cool).  Best of all?  It is free!

My goals for this first step of my diet are as follows (I am supposed to do each of these things daily):

  • Drink 8 8oz cups of water
  • Get 10 minutes of cardio exercise
  • Write in a journal

Not too bad, and in keeping with the third listed goal I am creating a new category called 'Fitness Journey.'  You all get to watch as I diet (and most likely ultimately fail).  It is all about the journey, not the destination.
