Day 5 - No Booze!
Hey y'all! Just wanted to check-in and let you know how my no-booze challenge is going. To be honest, it is going great! I went out for tacos last night, sat across my husband drinking a tall, cold glass of beer, and I didn't die! :) Also note that it was 71 degrees...perfect beer-drinking weather. So yeah, I was definitely being tested!
What I realized after dinner is that I felt a lot better physically. I wasn't so full for my meal and I didn't feel tired and blah afterwards. Not to mention, we saved money! That is always a plus.
I also found some humor in our date night - I swear they must have put up 20 beer-related billboards over the weekend in preparation for my no-booze challenge. Everywhere I looked there was an advertisement for beer or alcohol...come on!
This weekend will also be a bit difficult since my family is coming to visit. We are headed to a hibachi bar tonight, where normally I have a yummy, Japanese beer with my sushi (and maybe a little sake)! I do love a good challenge though, so bring it on!
If you are partaking in this challenge, what has been difficult and what positives have you noticed?! I know it has only been 5 days, but I am feeling like I can totally conquer this challenge.
