Alcohol, Storms and Weekends
So today would have been uneventful except it was my last exam, woohoo! Also we had a few torrential downpours due to a thunder storm passing so my umbrella got obliterated and I arrived home and had to wring out my scarf! I have to say the hot shower I had when I got home was THE best.
So eating has been fine today but I had 2 cheeky glasses of wine this evening in celebration...man I'm wild...however this weekend I am off to a beer festival so really excited about that! Obviously I won't be having beer, I only associate beer with being in a hot Spanish-speaking country or in Germany - that's when beer is refreshing :) I'll be seeing friends and participating in dreaded BBQs (weather permitting) so I will be heading for the non-dressed salad and hopefully I can have a marinade-free chicken breast because BBQ is like grilling but from underneath right? Although my usual tendency is to have a bottle of wine and forget about the food, liquid calories AND I usually find something to dance to. I love weighing after nights out as there is always a 3-4lb loss purely because I've been sweating it out on the dance floor all night - so waterloss a major factor but I can live with that. Also I never eat when coming home, I'm usually dragged round the late-night pizza and kebab houses with friends always trying to buy me chips but I'm so ingrained not to do it because by that point I'm probably going home to stick my head down the toilet! lol, great image there for everyone.
I will give you all a weigh-in next Wednesday - total calories today was approx 1300 with wine - couldn't count precisely because my boyfriend was home so he would have asked me why I'm measuring out a glass of wine...
Oooo also latest is I've got a Slendertone Flex Max for abs which I found amazing reviews for on amazon and other shopping websites. So had my first session today and if I only use it 4 times a week then you can get results in 2 weeks - knowing me I'll be on it twice a day. I've never found crunches worked for me, pilates is the only other exercise that reeeeeally tones my stomach so I've bought a pilates DVD as well!...How will I ever save money?...
So I need some discipline this weekend, I have a choice: food or alcohol, and being the true Scot that I am I know which one I'll be leaning towards :) Kind of praying that I'll have lost another 2lbs by next week, this week has been great so I'm determined it's going to continue!
