|Getting far too round. Time for extreme measures!|
So here I am 10 years later, almost exactly 10 years after that first party and night of drinking, declaring that I am going to give up booze for 3 months. I think while I am at it I will give up coffee too. I want to feel healthier. I want to lose weight. I want to stop feeling anxious and stressed out. I think the coffee makes me anxious and the alcohol attempts to balance it out. When in reality I could just stop both and maybe feel more balanced.
For the past month I have been attending yoga classes on a regular basis and running at least 3 times a week. There have been a few inconsistencies from traveling but for the most part that has been my routine. I felt awesome directly after my run. But after dinner and a glass of wine I didn't feel so great. So in an attempt to take healthy living to the extreme, here I go eliminating booze and coffee (I never thought I would see the day I would want to give up the cup of life) in an attempt to lose weight and feel great. It is easier to be held accountable in a public forum, which is why this is being posted on my blog. I will probably be a bear for a while because I can't imagine starting my day without a cup of coffee. I think the booze part will be much easier. I used to never drink in the village or when I was at the dog yard. Drinking and the bush never seemed like a good idea. But somehow town made booze ok. Well I am here to challenge my stance on that.
No booze and no coffee for 90 days starting May 27, 2011. Anyone else want to join me?
