Alcohol IS the Enemy

This blog will bring you up to today!!   Where I am at today.

I did battle with my weight, I still do battle with my weight,  part of my healthy eating is no snacks, no processed food and no alcohol. It works! Remember “You are what you eat” I found all this pretty easy, I even gave up chocolate, I was that focused.  Christmas…..not a problem, Easter…..not a problem.  My all inclusive holiday to Barbados……big, huge problem.  Ok I ate more than usual but to be honest it wasn’t really that bad, the actual food I consumed, the problem was the booze, I drank all day, everyday. My water intake dropped, my Pina Colada, Coconut Rum and Pineapple and Strawberry Dacquiri intake multiplied by 1000s.  I went to the gym every day sometimes twice, I would run 10K, then the next time run 5K and do 30-45 minutes strengthening. It didn’t help that a young barman asked me what I did for a living, I told him I was a hairdresser, his reply to that “What with that body!” therefore I didn’t think I looked too bad.

First thing I did on my return home was jump on the scales, I had gained a whopping 14lbs!! WTF??????? I upped my water intake to 3 litres a day again, watched my food, after 48 hours I had lost 6lbs, got back into my exercise, restarted DNA bootcamp for the first time after my operation, lost another 4lbs. Had a weeekend away camping gained 8lbs, this again was alcohol fuelled, lost some of that once home, couple of weeks later Fling Festival with the girls, dinner at the inlaws, then lunch in London and more alcohol.

The date of the lunch in London was Monday 4th July, my weight has sored to 9st 12lbs. I had gone from 8st 3lbs to that!!

Today, Friday 8th July I weigh 9st dead on, I’m about to go away for the weekend for my children’s dance competition in Bournemouth,  on the plus side 2 of my good friends also go, on the downside it will be another alcohol fuelled weekend, Monday 11th July is my birthday, Saturday 16th birthday meal out with friends, more alcohol.  Then that is it!!!!

I want to be back to 8st 7lbs.  I will do it, from Monday I will be logging all my food, drink and exercise.

No Excuses!
