As some of you know, at some point - we are supposed to blog about our trouble goal as part of one of our stages.
So this is me doing that - and it's been about a week of thinking about it - mainly because I didn't really want to talk about it.
My trouble goal is quitting drinking all together. I wouldn't say I have a drinking problem, because if I do drink, it's only 1-2 times a week. But as I look at my calorie logs, I realize that I drink too much when I do, and that adds up. And it could potentially be hurting me in other ways I haven't even thought about yet.
If I drink an extra xyz calories a week, it's completely counter productive to what I'm working towards. And I know this, intellectually. But on the other hand, at the end of a super stressful week - there's nothing more I want than repeats of Sex and the City and lots of wine.
So my goal is to either cut out the alcohol entirely or learn how to have a glass here and there. Either way - I need to figure out how to cut it down to make math sense in my weight loss equation. But it's been the toughest part of my journey.
