Sleep. It's a good thing when it happens!

Reality Check:Image hosting by Photobucket
I've decided to not have any alcohol whatsoever for the next month or so. I'm not sure why I'm breaking out with itchy, patchy lizard skin, and the only thing we had more of last week was alcohol... I had my usual free meal drink, but then Michael's birthday happened, then the barbecue the one night, then another night friends stopped by with a 6 pack of Coronas and lime... I'm way past my limit. I really didn't have much dairy, or not enough to make me break out, so I'm guessing it was the extra alcohol that kicked this break out into high gear. I'm not saying I didn't enjoy myself, because I did, but I wasn't paying attention...

Things that went right:
*Did biceps, back and tri's, circuits - 4 sets of 20, low weights
*Went out to lunch with a long time friend. I had Chinese stir fry veggies.
*Went out to the house to water the new plants, check the mail, and put fresh new sheets on the air bed

Things that need improvement:

*Get up earlier to fit in more of a workout. I should be doing more sets, but I start too late and need to scale it back because I run out of time...
*No alcohol for a month, not even on my free day.

So sorry about the rash. No alcohol for a month huh??? I could easily do it because I don't drink much. I hate drinking away calories, seems like such a waste. But I do enjoy a social drink every once in a while and it doesn't take much for me to feel it.

I don't drink that much so not having any alcohol of any kind will be easy. I usually have one drink with one free meal, if at all, and I usually don't finish it, either. It's usually dairy that gives me the break out, but this time I think it might have been more alcohol than I'm used to. We'll see.
