Boxing Blog #0: Prologue

So, part of the whole quest system is to blog a certain amount. While I could just attempt to spam the system like so many here, I decided to try and actually create content that people might actually enjoy.  
 
Also, This month I'm actually starting boxing training again. Boxing is something that I used to watch religiously with my father and which I was always fascinated by. I didn't actually even consider becoming a boxer until 2002 , when I became obsessed with Victorious Boxers. I became so involved that I hunted down the original manga and anime that it was based on. I'm going to do a separate post on that series a little later, I just wanted to make some sort of gaming connection right up front. 
 
So, why should you care? Well, whenever there is a problem to tackle, people on the internet crowd source ( a term I despise, it just reeks of hipster). My problem in the past when trying to get myself into competition form is that  I could not keep myself on track. Between joggin, eating rite and exercising outside of the gym i would always fail within a year and just give up. 
 
So here's the solution: each day I will post here about what I eat, what exercises I do and so on. For those following me all I ask is that you hold me to task. If i don't post here then it's up to you guys to P.M. me, post derogatory comments and so on to spur me toward my ultimate goal of getting into my first real amateur bout.  
 
This is essentially what the Weight Watchers program is, except this way I can harness the power of giant bomb for a positive reason, instead of just figuring out the latest ARG. 
 
To reward you guys, each of my blogs will not only have my info, I will also post boxing related writing here as well. It may be a non-fiction piece, it may be a link to someone else article or it may be a short story about the sport that I have written, but I will always make sure and write something for those who chose to follow and help me toward this goal. 
 
Tomorrow's Blog: I will post my stats, some pics, my exercise & gym schedule, what I ate and some entertaining boxing writing. 
 
Till then, work the body.
