Diet Chronicles: Day 00

Girl loved mimosas, fired chicken, bacon, and mashed potatoes on her diet. Sounds like a diet I wouldn't mind being on!
Maybe Marilyn was onto to something with her diet of raw eggs whipped into milk? It certainly did a body good!
She sometimes dieted on a baked potato with sour cream and caviar one time a day. Not much food but look at those collar bones! It worked girl!
If you look at my previous posts, it doesn't seem very likely that I'm the type of person to post about diet and fitness. I mean my previous food related posts have been about pancakes and alcohol and I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure those are diet no no's. However, I love reading about bloggers or journalists attempts at following the newest or crazy diet out there. Some of my favorites include Rebecca Harrington's account when following the Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe, and Liz Taylor's diet. Those fashionable ladies ate some pretty weird stuff and thanks to Ms. Harrington we get an insightful and hilarious look into what dieting was like for the glamourous. 

Also great is Stacy London from TLC's What Not to Wear's description of her time trying the paleo diet. I attached links to all of these articles. Definitely worth a read!

So as I am inspired by these witty and probably hungry ladies I have decided to chronicle my diet and fitness. I promise not to take them too serious and be annoying about it. I promise not to only post healthy recipes that are made to look and taste like unhealthy things but in reality do not end up tasting remotely like what they are supposed to...or good. Seeing as I'm an adult I would however, like to master the whole diet and exercise thing down to portions and repetitions so hopefully this will be a fun read for you and effective for me. 

As far a fitness is concerned. I have decided that I need to step it up a notch from my usual routine of not wanting to run but sometimes doing it. 

So diet and workout regime starts tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
