:/ Yeah, soooooo…if you follow me on Twitter you know that I did something pretty extraordinary this past weekend. I was planning on posting it in an accomplishments post but putting it out there now for a special reason…
I went this past Friday AND Saturday with NO beer!!!! You heard that right folks….not a drop or even a sip off of Frankie’s. And that was even DURING a basketball game!!!! HOLLA!!
Sunday morning, I just couldn’t believe it. 2 whole days…on the WEEKEND…with no beer. That’s the first weekend in years that I can remember not having a beer or any alcohol at all. Now I wont go ahead and say that I felt like a whole new person or anything, because it’s not like I wake up with a hangover every morning (again…I’m not a drink to get drunk kind of gal). But I will say that I certainly did have a little extra pep in my step!
Midday on Sunday I decided I felt like I was back in control, so I went to Wegman’s and built myself my fancy little craft beer 6 pack. I was a good girl and had 3 of them that day…all tracked! Then on Monday, I had the other 3…all tracked!
Then Tuesday happened….day started out with a crazy migraine that got me worried and scared. I started to feel better as the day went on but I figured a beer or two might help so I went to Wegman’s and built my 6 pack again (the theme this time was Pale Ale). I figured I would have 2 of them….
The 6 pack is gone, along with 3 or 4 of Frankie’s Coors Lights. I lost control. Again.
The bright side of this is that I tracked them all still. I even tracked the Sour Cream & Onion lays I ate & and the cheese and crackers I inhaled as well. Ugh. Not cool people, NOT cool.
So how do I move forward?? How do I break free of this habit I’ve gotten myself back into….
I’m going beer free for 7 days!!
That’s right folks…I am giving up beer and alcohol of any kind for the next 7 days. And since I set a week goal for myself I am going to jump on the awesome #7DayChip bandwagon to help keep me focused and get added support.
It definitely won’t be easy. Especially with Frankie drinking every night (he’s an 8-12 a night kinda guy) and no, he wouldn’t stop drinking with me nor would I want him to. But I’m a strong chick and I know I can do this! I *need* to do this. It has nothing to do with the scale or weight watchers. It has to do with control and wanting to take it back for myself.
As I stated before…I’m a lady who loves her beer and I would never want to give it up completely and that certainly not my goal here. I think giving myself a 7 day cleanse will be great for my body and my mind. And I can only imagine how great that first beer 7 days from now is going to taste.
No need to worry...I wont be changing the name of my blog. ;)
(oh and I promise to stop posting about beer and get some other topics posted...been posting on a whim lately)
