Off The Hooch - Day 17
Time flies when you're not having fun!
Ha I'm being overdramatic. Actually social life without alcohol has been pretty good - I've substituted my usual beer/wine with non-alcoholic beer or virgin girly drinks.
At the baseball game they have a "designated driver" program - if you agree not to consume alcohol, you get a coupon for a free Prohibition Brew by Budweiser. It's not bad! It's not good, but it's not bad!
I usually veg out after dinner - but without a beer or two (or wine or whatever) I find I have more energy to actually do stuff.
My training hours have increased for sure - over 10h the last couple of weeks. Just have less inclination to put off the run or ride. I'm already really active, but the extra couple of hours a week has helped.
I don't snack as much - but I still snack. And I'm still hungry after dinner, that kind of surprised me. I used to blame the alcohol for that.
My weight is down considerably - I was losing weight but very slowly, now it's coming off at about a pound a week. Maybe more, it's too early to really know for sure.
My mood is improved.
Just in general it's for the best, I know it's healthier. I do miss a good pint, though!
