#1 Booze, Probably My Worst Sin
Am I suggesting you stop drinking … Please do not be fucking stupid!
Of course NOT …
Look, the whole point of this is, Life Style changes
NOT short term, Quick Fixes. Which by definition will not work, Long Term.
However, you need to be honest with yourself,
I used to deny I had a problem.
I would buy an 18 pack of Stella at Tesco on a Sunday, telling myself that would see me through till next week …
TUESDAY had to replace it by Tuesday!
I used to go out on a Sunday afternoon and park up at Scotch Corner … It meant not getting up at 02.00 on Monday and also meant I had more driving time on the Monday.
BUT it also meant I had more drinking time… mental … Parked up by 5.00pm… 4 cans gone by 6.00pm… then two drinks with dinner, bed after “The Archers”. Wake up at 6.00am feel like shite for the day…into Barnard Castle, shower and coffee… what a start to a week!
I do not think I was asleep … I was unconscious…
Is It Easy ?
No it is not, I really struggled, and to be honest when I made the decision to lose weight I completely cut drink out for 3 months.
I had to, and this is my personal choice, I had to break the habit… It is still ingrained to grab a beer after work, but now I have some self discipline and actually look forward to having a couple of pints when we go out …
have I stopped completely … Again Do Not Be Fucking stupid … No Of course not… and last weekend for my birthday I had two great sessions over the weekend … Friday night was an epic night, ending up with me asleep on the toilet at home … Plastered is the term I would use… absolutely fucked …
BUT … and this is the point … that weekend was just a 2 day party and I was back on the right path by Sunday afternoon, and even with all the excess I still lost weight by Thursday weigh in
- As a “Professional Driver,” should I really be getting pissed the night before a long drive?
- Alcohol has a very high Calorie content, but the calories are not “good” so do not even give you energy or any goodness and they are hard to shift
- Isn't it better to enjoy a pleasant drink with friends, than just trying anaesthetise yourself with strong alcohol?
- Save it till you really enjoy it
- Excess drink is really NOT good for your overall health
- Save some Fucking cash
I am not saying turn into a tea total bore, or some sort of saint… MODERATION … and at Appropriate times…
If you are serious about weight loss… I lost 2 1/2 stone in January and February and 18 days in March … every year … Just by NOT drinking… When my dry time was over… on went the weight again… not over night, but certainly within 2 months… #guzzeler
Think about it !
