Taking charge

Monday, April 15, 2013

I had an enough is enough moment last week. I feel like crap. I look like crap. I can accept it or change it. I choose to change it. SOOOOO

I gave up pretty much all alcohol. Now I was never a heavy drinker. A couple of beers on Friday and Saturday but when I added the calories of my favorite craft beers up it is a lot. A lot that I can easily do without and won't miss. It was a social thing and if my social activities are making me unhappy well then a change has to be made. Nobody will want me around less if I am drinking sparkling water.

I know some people say everything in moderation and I will have a glass of wine now and then but there are some things that I do need to cut out entirely. My body does not respond to sugar normally which is essentially all alcohol break down to in terms of calories and nutrition. I feel happy because I know this will be really good for me and I miss the person I was when I was rocking it on SP. That feeling everyday of waking up and knowing I am one day closer to feeling better. That the next time I buy clothes I will be smaller and they will look better. I will have that feeling again.

    I reached that point about 46 yrs. ago when alcohol (and not really a lot) made me feel bad, out of sorts and I quit wanting carbs just another beer. Women really are not built to drink alcohol, we have a much lower tolerance for it. I have never regretted this decision for so much as a moment. I like always feeling sharp as a tack and I have made enough stupid decisions without adding something that might lead me astray. You are in a very high stress profession and it would be best if you used exercise for a destressor. Good luck with this, I think you are on the right track.
