Going STRONG into the Weekend

  • Sep 21st, 2018 at 9:40PM

5 days with no alcohol

Thanks for the lesson on cheat days on a Friday. This is a great mental reinforcement heading into the weekend. I have a few temptations including my good friend’s 40th bday party on Sat and we got a sitter. I’m confident I can navigate the food Kenzai-ish, but the temptation to drink will be strong. I’ve sabotaged program success with alcohol before, but I’m not doing that this time.

https://www.strong.app/
I’ve been using this app on my phone for a few years to track weight workouts. I like the easy to use interface. It has the effect of nudging me when I look at the weight I’ve grabbed, and then I see that I’ve gone higher in the past, so I push myself to go more. It’s a bit tricky to toggle back and forth between this and the Kenzai app, but it’s doable. I recommend this for anyone who wants to record their workouts digitally.

Well done! Yes today’s lesson is well timed. Alcohol is also my Achilles heel...

    "IRON" crossroad! You know the drink or not to drink path leads to mentally different roads ahead! Keep that strong momentum going!

      You’re in SF, drink Kombucha and cut a few carb grams—no one can tell it’s not beer!

        I’m like you with a cheeky vino but trying to resist - I’m channelling my focus into how fabulous skin, hair and body will look without all the bad stuff !

          Stay strong Ed. Events with friends are tough, but you know you can do it. After all, you’re the guy who stayed compliant at Disneyland.

              Janet, thanks for reminding - Ed's the guy with egg whites in Disneyland! Ed, compared to that no alcohol feels like a walk in the park!
