To booze or not to booze?
Updated: Jan 20
As I mentioned before, I am trying to keep my body clean. No meat, no dairy, no sugar and as little processed food as is humanly possible.
So then, the question of alcohol...
We all know that booze is generally FULL OF SUGAR!!! I’m not a big drinker as a rule, I don’t drink at dinner or when at restaurants and I have never once in my life craved alcohol. Not drinking for me-is easy.
SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM STACEY?
The problem is girls night! Wow!
It is as if there is magic in the air and a group of ”thirty somethings” are transported back in time. We are loud and inhibition free! On girls night, anything is possible. On these few occasions we are not working moms and wives but wild and free. We dance, scream and cackle like a wicked coven!
Fuel to The fire:
My oh my, I do love a good margarita. It’s like tiny drops of wildest Mexico wrapped in a parcel of joy and hysterical giggling and delivered straight from heaven. ( at least I’m not dramatic) Worse still, my best friend and I are equally in love with this Mexican delight and have laughed, cried, screamed and bonded over many. When we get together and there is music and margaritas... the result is quite spectacular!!!💃🍸💃🏻😂💚
So what is a woman to do?
Spiritually: Booze lower the vibrations. No doubt about it. I can feel the disconnect straight away and I have to factor that into my decision.
At the beginning of this journey I said that this is not about being thin. I’m not on a crazy strict diet that limits everything. I’m trying to change my life!!! I also noted that I am not dead!
The road in between...
1. I will enjoy girls nights and hysterical conversations with my best friend. I hardly drink so I’m not going to feel guilty when
I do. This is sustainable... this is a lifestyle choice.
2. Girls night is sacred and it should be honored. If you don’t have girls night, please reach out to me and I will bring you to mine so that your life can be whole. 😉
3. Given that I hardly drink, the effects of the odd night’s sugar should be able to undo a lifestyle of good choices. Also, no one is getting hammered, we just party really hard and speak REALLY loud. 😂
