I've decided!

It took me a while to decide what diet I'd like to follow, it was a little difficult, I've never done a diet before, and I wanted to include Michael in the decision because whatever I choose Michael will be following as well -at least some of the time ;-)

They all sound like they are really good diets, way to make it difficult guys :-P 

The blood type diet sounds interesting, but I don't know my blood type yet...

So I've decided I'm going to do the 80/20 with a twist. I want to add a stipulation for myself that 51% of the meals I eat be raw. It's healthy and helps your body detox more than almost anything else which is so important with all the crappy stuff we put into it.

If anyone else wants to start implementing more raw foods in your diet let me know and I can post ideas and we can help each other :-) 

So, that's what I'm planning on doing! I'm going to use some of the websites that were posted in the diet info to help get ideas for the 80%. 

I'm excited for this challenge, and I know that as we help and motivate each other we will all be able to stick to our chosen diets and succeed!

Wait, why 51 percent? That's a weird number to choose.

I seriously can't get over it. I am at least 51% obsessed.

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
