Call the Diet Police!!!


Step away from the food!

Well, what a weekend - a seemingly never ending roller-coaster of food....

I really fell off the wagon on Saturday. Our new neighbours came to dinner and far too much food and alcohol were consumed. I ate all the things I know I shouldn't (bread, cheese, lots of olive oil etc, etc), drank wine and whiskey like the last days in Hitlers' Bunker.

I compounded this with some truly dismal food choices at a birthday party we attended on Sunday. Fried chicken, pea nuts, cheese (again) - blah, blah, blah - ughh!, what an idiot!

The obvious consequence of this is weight gain - On Sunday morning I was 3 pounds heavier than Friday!! The less immediately obvious consequence was the effect it had on my running (or indeed the lack of it...). These woefully poor food choices completely blew my energy and motivation levels - I felt bloated, tired and listless....I am so angry with myself!

Anyway, the diet police have been called and the diet is back on! I have been sentenced to a 3 day fast to get myself back on track. I will restart the running on Wednesday from the beginning of the programme, and THIS time, I will not let anything deflect me from the course I need to take.

This turn of events is truly ironic when you consider that today my interview has been published on the weight loss tips website. Ironic in the fact that of all days, I have never felt less qualified to advise anyone on mind over matter diet motivation!

Right, that's quite enough self-flagellation for one day ....

Oh, it wasn't just me that entered the All-England Calorie Scoffing Contest this weekend then!

Extra Saute potatoes with dinner and two desserts is not the way to easy weight loss!

I feel so let down fat bloke. I believed that you would beat your cravings and desires and shed those pounds and steer clear of temptations. As a fatty who has no willpower I needed you to be strong. Please, next time, walk away from those tasty treats, say no to the fried chicken and run away from the cheese. I speak on behalf of all fatties out here - we need you.
