It's going to pot!!!

Not blogged in a while, but been struggling to maintain the standard and have been losing the battle and straying from the straight path. I think it all went down hill when I gave up the liquid diet.
Up to then I was strict, then I hit the cereal which was still better then regular food, and then this week I hit the regular food and with it lost the will to resist temptations.
Today alone I have had a months worth of junk crap, birthdays in the office along with exam passing celebrations, along with a left over buffet from a senior meeting, all piled into the office. It takes a very strong willed person to resist. My problem is that I didn't know when to stop, and to pick one item instead of two.

It's done now. I'm not bulimic so I ain't gonna puke it out. Just have to control from here on and burn some extra calories.

I made such positive progress and now I'm losing it and although it's scary and stressful I know that It's not too late to get back on the path.

I must read my old posts for inspiration. Eye of the Tiger! - Hit the one in the middle!

Keep up the spirits

I had one of those weekends that you know will go belly up in terms of your progress, before it's even begun. Admittedly I had a birthday party and a childrens one at that, full of sweets and cakes and food to make your mouth water. I decided to have an off day. No restrictions, I just went for it. Why stop half way. I'm off the liquid diet for now because I've been on it a month now and although it has given me satisfactory results, it's just getting boring chucking liquid down me twice a day. I may try the cereal diet next for a couple of weeks then move back onto liquid.
I realise that crash dieting is not good and promoting it is worse but I admit that for fast results it works, the big question for such crash dieters is 'can you maintain an element of control when you get off the crash diet highway?'
Admittedly you will gain pounds instantly when you hit real food but how much is up to you. If you stay away from the danger stuff like cakes, bicuts, sweets, chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks, fast food, etc, you should be able to ride that horse at a steady pace and not fall off.

It gets harder every day

I try to maintain some sort of routine even when not at work, but it doesn't always go as planned. Therefore next week will try a new approach. I am still as determined to succeed in my mission but I guess getting impatient for results. In my frustration I can be susceptible to breaking some small rules (I never said this was easy or that I was faultless!)
I can see that the weekend will be hard. Maintain speed, even over bumpy ground.
