Temptation 0 – Diana 1

Well, I think I’m taking the right steps to a healthier lifestyle. I’m trying to cut down on coffee (gasp! one cup a day!), eat breakfast, take smaller amounts of food throughout the day and drink plenty of water and milk. For dinner, I plan to gradually eat only fruits/vegetables and for health, to eventually make use of my 24 Hour gym membership.

I didn’t make any New Year’s Resolution for this purpose. I knew that if I set such goals for myself at the beginning of a new year, I can eventually talk my way out of it and quickly lose interest or motivation. And that is why I chose to gradually change my daily habits rather than rushing to change my lifestyle in a week or two. It would be impractical and highly probable that I would fail. I need to first prepare myself mentally and persuade myself of the sheer logic of it all.

As long as I see the light at the end of the tunnel, I plan to build a strong-enough mindset to overcome my temptations. So for now, sugary sweets, calories, fat, alcohol? are my enemies!

But if you invite me out to dinner, depending on circumstances, I may just let the bad guys win…
