Saturday night I’m supposed to go out with friends for a balls to the wall kinda night. Which, I was super excited about and looking forward to… Until my trainer asked me this morning what my plans were for the weekend.
My face soured and she was like, uh oh- what are doing? So I told her the plan. I should also mention I loooove a good night of drinking with friends. We planned on getting hotels too, so everyone could crash safely and we could all freely enjoy ourselves.
So we talked about some possible options (vodka and sprite zero, if they had it or vodka and soda water with crystal light). Shortly after I got to work, I made a decision: I’m not drinking. At all.
My trainer was 110% right when she said one drink turns to two which turns into…. You know. I also had a really great week and am 3 weeks into eating clean. I’ve done really well, I feel amazing, and my trainer said she could tell by how I looked (less puffy eyes and glowing skin) that I had a really good week. Im also down that 8lbs, which is nothing to sneeze at.
So- no drinky drink for me! I’m kinda bummed, and while I know it’s possible, I’ve never been one of those who can still have fun while others drink. But- I’m going to try something new this weekend!
At first I thought about just canceling and not going at all. It would be easier- no temptation. But why should I shy away from friends and having fun just because I’m eating well and making healthy choices? Surely I can not drink for one evening.
So- that’s the plan for this weekend! This way Sunday won’t be wasted on a hangover either! I have things to do!
