Day 17-18 The Aftermath
- Aug 18th, 2013 at 7:51PM
Birthday drinks didn't turn out exactly as planned. I underestimated the power of birthdays and the power of my friends on my birthday vs. my willpower. What can you do if your friends order drinks for you and even the bar man gave us loads of free drinks because - it is my bday? So I decided to enjoy 1 night and had a bit of wine, vodka soda and bubbles. Cheated with most of it with only 3-4 small sips (didn't finish any of them) except for shots which I cannot just sip! Terrible me but oh well, it was a fun night out. Made sure I drank loads of water so no hungover the next day but was a very slow start and had to skip my lunch carbs due to timing.
Last night I hosted the family at home for dinner. I can't eat out so I decided to bring the party to my home instead. Cooked healthy stir-fry veggies and chicken with brown rice. Simple and easy. No alcohol and cake for me, although my sister made sure I did blow a cake. They had the cake and I ate my cherries and pineapple. It was a good chill family catch up.
Guilty of my birthday crimes - I worked very hard and skipped to a thousand with extra sets on my work-out this weekend. But what's up with the pretzel lift? I looked like a confused pretzel!
Overall, I was very pleased how my birthday weekend turned out. Birthdays I always find myself being really trashed and sick but this time around, I feel really good, happy and healthy :)
