Chicago is filled with great street festivals in the summer. They are filled with temptation...sangria, mojitos and all sorts of food!! I also have a job where people buy me drinks......I have not been drinking alcohol because of my commitment to losing weight.Yesterday I partook in street festivities and today I am paying for it. I now notice a real difference in how I feel when I don't drink and when I do. When I drink I have uncontrollable cravings for diet sabotaging foods mixed with the mental "to heck with it" attitude. The next day I am sluggish and still fighting cravings......and GROUCHY!!! Everything is painful and daunting...and all I want to do is sit on the couch and binge. Hopefully by tomorrow my blood sugar levels will balance out and I will feel better....note to self..you booze you lose!!!
