Diet Perils - The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

Its a week since I began my New Year's Resolution to get fit, reach goal weight and be bikini ready. I have done very well - exercised daily, eaten well and healthily, and the scales are budging which is fantastic.

I've been having healthy breakfasts like this one - cereal, fruit, goji berries, skimmed milk. I have laid off the bread opting for lovely salads and home made soups. Come evening, I have kept to protein and veggies, and its going well so far. That's the good part. 

The bad part is that no matter how well I have done this first week, I have a long way to go to get to where I want to be. Its so hard keeping motivating after one month, two months - I am really pleased that I have done well this week, with good results. But it gets to me that its going to be a long while before I lose all the weight, get toned up and look how I want to, and that is bad. 

The ugly is how I feel when I derail, and how I feel about having got this point in the first place. How I have sat scoffing take away, eating crisps, drinking wine. Its the ugly truth that I have no one and nothing to blame but my own self for where I am. 

The only option available to me now is to keep going. Its early days, but I have to do this for myself, and persevere and not keep thinking how long it is going to take. The good, the bad, and the ugly are where I am and that is just the way it is.
