Day 8 – (Monday 16 January)
New hair cut and new wine, better quality and a bit more palatable. Struggling more now, 6/10 in the morning probably 4/10 in the afternoon. Very foggy/cloudy head, takes more concentration at work early on. Sparking great wine debate in the studio, upping to 200ml now. Still dehydrated and probably a bit dryer skin as a result. Bring on the next 6 days!!
Day 9 – (Tuesday 17 January)
Glass of vino, on a rocking horse watching Silent Witness……why not! Had to break open some red as I ran out of white, so a very slight deviation away from the grand plan. 2 Large glass now this week so 250ml. Without sounding like a wet it’s a bit of a push to drink it before 10am. I seem to have the inability to drink slowly, I’m also struggling now to stay away from snacks whether it’s a slice of toast, some crisps or whatever. I can’t be the only one turning to food after a couple of mid week glasses of wine, if this is accurate then when aiming for fat loss it’s not just the wine that’s the problem. It could be the tip of the ice berg!! Let me know your thoughts, do you snack after a few drinks in the week, have you even registered this or mentally blocked the extra calories!? More updates tomorrow. 6/10 this morning, sleep Is awful but that’s 60% life stuff 40% feeling groggy. TTFN
Day 10 – (Wednesday 18 January)
Man down, I repeat….man down! But 2 large glasses done and I’m generally knackered. Still not getting the winding down, relaxing with a glass of wine vibe yet. Maybe I’m just warming up, perhaps less stressed in the evening, can’t be totally certain. However I can see how it starts to become a habitual – NEED WINE!! Thingy. Just not sure I’m in to it. Let’s see what tomorrow brings. Loving the clients that are going booze free for Jan, great to hear how amazing they feel in only 3 weeks! 4 more days for me then it’s back to a good old cuppa! Until then…. bottoms up!
Day 11 – (Thursday 19 January)
This is what happens to a bottle of wine when you drink 2 large glasses……..there’s barely anything left! How may of you then drink the rest? So how am I feeling?? OK tbh, tired in the morning and the cloudiness is there but it’s levelled off at 5/6 out of 10, I don’t know if that’s good or a tad alarming on some levels. And I’m new to this!! It’s certainly making me think about the affect of prolonged wine drinking on many people I train and know – Not enough of an affects to note dramatic changes but enough to facilitate a mental detachment from the norm, but always manageable! Im on the finishing straight now, Monday is in sight. Off I trot for my fist large tipple of the evening. Salute!!
Day 12 – (Friday 20 January)
I’m now getting all to used to seeing this in my shopping bag and a row of empties gathering in the kitchen. No real budge on how I’m feeling at the mo, still 5/10. Feels like I’ve hit a bit of a plateaux and the awareness of being average state mentally has become the new normal – Out at a wedding reception tomorrow eve where I’ll cut lose a bit and have 1 or 5 more, will definitely be in trouble on Sunday morning. But I guess it’s not unusual for the habitual evening drinker to have a few more over the weekend…..must be constantly playing catch up on wellness! TTNF, down the hatch!
Day 13 – (Saturday 21 January)
Out Out with Rosanna to a wedding reception, so had an easy couple of glasses tonight plus a few more! Probably be nursing a sore head tomorrow. No more changes on how I feel but imagine next few days will be tougher after a boozy night tonight. Until tomorrow…..
Day 14 – (Sunday 22 January)
So I made it to the end of the 14 days. Forced a couple of these down tonight, serious hair of the dog, didn’t fancy it in the slightest. But challenge accomplished and 14 days of 2 glasses of wine per night complete. Video summary to come in next couple of days. Back to a good old cuppa tonight, it’s been an interesting experiment sparking lots of great debate in the FOF studio. Check in for final post tomorrow! Phewww!!
Day 15 – (Monday 23 January)
Mission accomplished. First take……that’ll do. Final summary in! Thats all folks!
