2010---Diet Challenge

I spent a whole year saving money, getting out of debt, and really getting my life back together from a financial explosion of epic negative proportions.

I wanted to continue the theme of year long adventures into 2010. One year, one mission, one chance to get one aspect of my life back on track.

My diet.

Ohhhh no! I've said the "D" word. Well, fortunately, nobody is going to rinse my mouth out with soap for dropping that word, but frankly they should.

I'm on a mission this year to get healthy, get active, and get back to where I can look at myself in the mirror again and not find those parts of my body that I hate and that hate me. It's not going to be easy. Let's face it, that's not how I roll. But it will be fun and it will be challenging, especially since I'm not just going to be dieting and exercising. I'm going to be testing the limits of my body. Nothing to extreme like marathon running or climbing Mt. Everest.

No, what I have planned is a bit more sinister. You see, there is a researcher inside of me that begs to be finding the best way to go about doing things the right way. You can't trust diet claims on the internet or television or from your neighbors coworker's ex-boyfriend's mother's hairdresser. It just doesn't work that way.

So I'm officially setting the challenge up for any and all forms of dieting. 50 diets. 50 weeks.

You heard that right... or rather read that correctly.

I am going to give 50 diets one week's worth of testdriving. Keeping track of everything from weight to measurements to how I feel on the diet. I'm looking forward to researching these 50 diets leading up to the first week of January when it all goes down.

As a control setting, I will also get moving and get active. Pictures, videos, blood, sweat, and tears all to follow.

I hope you'll stick with me in 2010, lord knows I'm going to need some friends to hold my hand and help me stay on track.

This Little Diet of Mine, kicks off January 1, 2010.
