I’ve done well with drinking less in general – I no longer drink on airplanes which is HUGE for me… now I’m used to it, seems weird to have a drink on the plane now. Didn’t take that long or was it that painful to make this healthy change in my life. And in general, with work being so busy, I’ve not had as much time to “cut loose” as I used to.
But after Friday, being wildly hung-over I was (and quite possibly legally drunk until noon or so) at the Atlanta Airport, I’ve decided I’ve got to cut back on the booze for a while. On Friday I decided to not drink at all for a week.. but that changed on Saturday, when GFP came over and had a few glasses of wine, and had a pomegranate martini with C-Licious on Sunday.
Anyway, I thought that while I’m at it, why not ALSO do what my doctor recommended… which was to eat before I run/exercise. When I went to the doctor to get my IUD inserted, he told me to eat breakfast.. I let him know I don’t usually eat breakfast… and we had a great conversation on how that is not good for me. He said that if I ate a small bit of protein and carbs before I work out, I could lose up to 5 pounds. I told him I’d do it (it was on my New Years Resolutions this year, and my weight hasn’t budged down or up), he weighed me before I left, and the bet is on!!
So, my goal is to:
- take two sobriety nights a week AND
- eat before I exercise in the morning.
And I’m going to document all of my activities (time with friends, dates, goals, etc) on my new fancy Calendar Of Activities. Its how I was able to achieve so much last year.. keeping track of it via calendar. Keeps me honest.
