One minor setback is nothing if you really want something and are willing to work for it.........just move on..........

I did start w/ real coffee at dinner today - that's midday, don't gasp - then I switched to unleaded. At supper I just had decaf.

I do have 1 bottle of Dr Pepper Heritage, w/ real sugar & not corn syrup crapola. I used to be able to find Jones Soda Vanilla Cola near home, I'd have 1 about 1x/week. Jones is also made w/ real sugar. I so miss that.

Happy Weekend to you!

Your challenge this Weekend is to watch your alcohol and caffeine consumption. Why?

ALCOHOL is full of "empty calories".

*Despite the small quantity of liquid, a single shot of liquor (1.5 oz) can contain anywhere from 115-200 calories.
*A 4.0 oz glass of wine contains anywhere from 62-160, with 160 being on the high end of the spectrum.
*Mixed drinks are where the calories really add up, ranging from approximately 280 calories for a gin and tonic to over 800 calories for some of the frozen, creamy drinks.

If you drink, remember these rules:

* Try alternating alcoholic drinks with low calorie non-alcoholic drinks or water.
* Ask for low calorie / diet mixers where possible.
* Make your wine into a spritzer (a longer drink), or your lager into a shandy - both have fewer calories.
* Substitute your "alcopop" for a shot of spirit and a low calorie mixer - about a quarter of the calories!
* Plan your alcohol into your daily calorie quota so you can enjoy a glass or two. If you know you will be drinking during the weekend, try to save some calories each day in advance, so you can eat normally before you go out.
* Don't be tempted to skip meals to allow for drinks, as alcohol won't satisfy your hunger. In fact, alcohol lowers blood sugar levels (it prevents sugar that is normally stored in the liver, as glycogen, from breaking down). A drop in blood sugar levels sends signals to the brain you are hungry. With alcohol in your system, willpower can go out of the window and the snack attacks kick in. Eating a proper meal before you go out will line your stomach and slow the rate at which alcohol absorbs into your bloodstream, keeping you in control of how much you eat and drink.


CAFFEINE:

Caffeine is a drug that is naturally produced in the leaves and seeds of many plants. It's also produced artificially and added to certain foods. Caffeine is defined as a drug because it stimulates the central nervous system, causing increased alertness. Caffeine gives most people a temporary energy boost and elevates mood.

Caffeine is a diuretic, meaning it causes a person to urinate (pee) more. It's not clear whether this causes dehydration or not. To be safe, it's probably a good idea to stay away from too much caffeine in hot weather, during long workouts, or in other situations where you might sweat a lot.

Caffeine may also cause the body to lose calcium, and that can lead to bone loss over time.

Caffeine can aggravate certain heart problems. It may also interact with some medications or supplements. If you are stressed or anxious, caffeine can make these feelings worse. Although caffeine is sometimes used to treat migraine headaches, it can make headaches worse for some people.


REMEMBER: Everything in moderation. Should you drink alcohol or caffeine is weekend or otherwise, make sure you have water too.

Have a Great Weekend !
May you and yours enjoy the blessings of Easter !!!
Happy Easter to all........
