I’ve just concluded another week of my diet. To be completely honest, I haven’t been all that zealous this week. I mentioned in my first post about my ascetic diet that I don’t want to be too picky about what I eat when I’m invited to someone. Well, since this was Easter week, we were invited to friends and family no less than three nights in a row. Furthermore, an evil cold efficiently prevented me from performing my exercising duties.

Despite all this I actually convinced the scale to show some negative numbers!

Easter and temptations

Easter has just past. During Easter people bring forth an insane amount of candy. Especially when you work on a company with a lot of contractors like I do. All of them wants to show their capabilities in stuffing their co-workers with candies. You really need to be steadfast to avoid falling for the temptation.

As I stated earlier, we were invited to friends and family for three consecutive nights. The Easter, like Christmas and to some extent Midsummer’s day, is all about eating. I didn’t know this before, but pie is apparently the taste of the season during Easter. I thought Easter was all about eggs. Oh, and that guy Jesus.

We were treated with pie on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Don’t get me wrong. I love pie.It’s just that my diet is based on a foundation with no flour and a minimum of carbohydrates. The main ingredients of pie is flour and carbohydrates.

I refuse to be someone who’s just picking in the food because you’re on a diet. Instead, I take a bit more sallad and choose to enjoy the great tasting pies with a clean conscience. I deserve as much.

Break down and get up

I also managed to get a cold during this week. Because of this I couldn’t do my exercises.

Haha, read that again. I couldn’t do my exercises. My definition of exercise is to get my ass out of the sofa. Was I really that ill, so couldn’t even take a 30 minute walk? Of course not! Instead I used my sore throat and running nose as a excuse to stay at home, doing nothing. And you know what? That’s OK. You have to be able to give yourself a bit of slack sometimes. The important thing is that you don’t use yesterday’s skipped exercise as an excuse to skip it today.

Now that my throat is better I have taken a long nice walk with Mrs Heed.

Break down and get up, as Swedish cross country skier Per Elofsson put it. It’s as simple as that.
