New Years Resolutions! Yes ik know, it is half way January. But I am not a big fan of them and yet I have been on my favourite diet since the second of January. It is called the 17 days diet and tomorrow I will finish the first phase of 17 days. There is 3 more to come. Basically the diet consists of not eating carbs, not drinking alcohol and not playing couch potato.
In other words:
- No bread, no pasta, no rice and/or potatoes in any form.
- No wine, no beer, no gin tonic and thus no social life in any form.
- Cycling, walking and running every time I leave the house and trying to leave the house as much as possible.
Goal: -5 kilos (secretly -7 kilos)
Deadline: Friday the 28th of February 19h00. Or as we Southern Dutchies call it the beginning of Carnaval.
Ok so now my dilemma. I am meeting this boy tonight for drinks. Am i going to cheat on my diet for him? Or am I going to social and drink my (if I must say so myself) more than deserved glass of wine.
Cheating on my diet for a boy (not even this one in particular) feels kind of stupid. Because, let’s be honest, part of the on-going loosing weight battle is to be more attractive for the opposite-sex. More importantly I have been listening to the angel on my shoulder for weeks, not cutting myself any slack in my diet. And proud of it!
However, the little devil on my shoulder is screaming that one night of drinking won’t make me fail my diet and I would probably stand more change with the boy if I am tipsy.
So any thoughts on what I should do? Be my angel, be my devil…
PS. Any thoughts on what I should wear are also very welcome
