August goal

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

So I know if I ever want to reach my weight loss goals I need to stop the almost daily alcohol drinks that I let myself have...even two or three beers/ glasses of wine is an extra at least 300-500 calories and then I lose my resolve, then I'm not motivated to workout in the morning, vicious cycle. I'm not saying I won't drink again, but it needs to be on special occasions and I'm not going to keep it in the house. I know two events in August that I will plan to have drinks: this weekend's camping trip and at an annual friends party August 15th and 16th. I start back to work August 18th so I will busy, busy and back on a schedule which will help. I hope this will jump start my motivation, get me on a healthy streak again. I'm still going to track my foods and go to WW meetings but my main focus will be giving up this bad habit and making new ones!

    My trick has been to consistently switch to lower and lower alcohol beers. I know it won't work for everyone, but I don't feel as deprived when I know I can have a few Bud Select 55's without paying a penalty. Over time I drink less and less.

    This sound like me writing this blog! Alcohol is my down fall, not only is it empty calories but I eat everything in sight after a few drinks, I am going to try and start the 21 day fix Monday and want to be alcohol free for that 21 days. Its hard, I know how you feel!
