Don't Drink and Diet

All the best intentioned weeks of dieting can be ruined by an evening of Mott's Clamato Juice and a bit of Vodka. Summer BBQs are the one of the best things about the season. Sitting back with a few friends some steak and a drink.

Sunday evening I dug out my box of dieting manuals and recovered my copy of the Zone. Excited I went to the 24 hour grocery store and bought all the foods I would need for the week. i dusted off a smallish cooler and put an ice pack in the freezer. Monday started off wonderfully. I got up in the morning and had a brisk walk. I returned home and stocked my cooler with vegetables, a banana, a sandwich and a salad of tomatoes, cucumber and avocado. I was ready to diet. WhooHoo was I ready. I was able to maintain my excitement well into Wednesday night. I had a meeting in the evening and I arrived with a bottle of Fresca in hand and some serious kick-ass. When I arrived my glorious partners were discussing Company names over glasses of champagne. I hauled out my Fresca to drink as as I turned to get a glass a Ceasar appeared on the counter before me. Just one I thought. One turned to four and suddenly my diet was off course. Thursday arrived and I stuck to the diet, no exercise. Now on to Friday. A summer BBQ at a friend's place. Oh joy o bliss, the weather was marvelous and as in most circles of friends I suspect, people arrive that you hadn't seen since last summer. Feeling badly about my misstep on Wednesday I vowed to nurse one drink and then switch to unsweetened ice tea. Seven ceasar later I was hammered and my diet was once again in the gutter.

I know others might say that I'm weak but I would say "Let's be realistic". What is a gal to do. Lock herself in a closet and eat rice crisps all summer.

It's Sunday again. Pounds lost this week 0. I am writing this message and thinking about the grocery store. Do I give it a try again this week? Of course I do as the alternative is to gain a pound. I must be strong and if I have learned anything this week it's Don't drink and diet. It's going to be a long summer.

Don't lose hope. All we need to do is to monitor and discipline ourselves if we are serious in dieting. I myself feels guilty too whenever I told myself to start dieting and later on ended up drinking colas.

Very interesting and true to the fact.

I gained 10Lbs in 2 weeks by drinking only.

I think that The Best Way to Lose Weight is to stay away from drinking.

Great methods. If you can focus on one of these tips, it will bring more desired effects. Another way is to train martial art, not only fitness and weight loss, but also strength.

I can understand moderate drinking but to be honest, drinking is not good for your liver. I would prefer to keep myself looking good and younger by taking care of my body with proper diet and exercise.
