The Problem with Alcohol

Friday, August 01, 2008

I need to stay away from alcohol. Whenever I drink, it lowers my inhibitiions. Lowered inhibition results in eating too much. Eating and drinking too much makes me sleepy, but when I do go to bed I don't sleep well. I toss and turn all night and wake up groggy and tired. The next day I don't have breakfast because I'm still full from the previous night's indulgences. That causes me to be over-hungry for lunch, which causes me to over-eat again. By the time I'm done with work the last thing I want to do is go to the gym. Note to self - stay far, far away from alcohol. A couple of drinks can mess up a couple of days.

    Haha...yes, it is a long chain reaction. So true about the extra calories! I tend to justify the couple hundred calories, but it's hard to justify the resulting day or two days of BLAH that comes after.

    That is a LONG chain reaction. You're right, probably best to stear clear, plus if you have too much, then you consume calories that you can't REMEMBER consuming! lol

    Hope you feel better!
