I don’t know whether this is me becoming an old woman (I am almost 35 people!), or if I have been eating and drinking healthy enough that drinking is just something my body cannot tolerate. Because it can’t. I tested the waters Sunday night by having a few delicious Salted Karamel Martini’s and a glass of wine. I was having a dinner party! But ooohhhhh, my body was not impressed the next day. The thing of it is, is that I wasn’t hungover. I didn’t have enough to drink for that to be what was happening. My body was just super pissed because I had fed it so many impurities and it was telling me that it didn’t like it and I should never do that again.
Lesson learned. I am not the same person I was when I first started this journey. I need to re-set my mind. I cannot eat or drink what I used to on my “cheat” days. I can longer take it and my body lets me know!! Thank you stomach cramps and rolling waves of nausea! (And NO I am not pregnant people!)
So with my going back to Canada this weekend, I was all gung-ho to drink with my friends and party it up. Now, thanks to this little experiment, I don’t think I can have alcohol. Thankfully I am going to see my friends and catch up, as we haven’t seen each other in a good six months. Also, I was never the uber messy one when it came to drinking, so my not drinking won’t be too disappointing.
I am curious to see what the next big thing my body will reject. If it’s sugar, that will be great and yet depressing!! Oh love/hate relationship with sugar, why are you my Achilles’ heel????
