Wow. Technology truly has no limits. I’m currently blogging from my IPhone. Although I think this is the best thing since sliced bread, this may be very, very old news to most experienced bloggers and readers.
Anywho, It’s been a few days since I’ve had a moment to lay back and let my mind wander. Topic of today: The wonders of living a sober summer. Well I’m a week into this attempt at living, eating, and drinking healthy and I can tell you it is NOT easy. Today has been my biggest test thus far as I’m currently laying by the pool and want nothing more than to sip down a pomegranate margarita on the rocks with a salted rim.
The reason for ditching the drink? Two main reasons. Since my 21st birthday I’ve been a victim of the beer belly accompanied by an empty wallet. On top of it, hangovers just aren’t fun. But, let me this emphasize that this phase is not and I repeat NOT permanent. Solely temporary for the sake of a challenge and to save a few bucks, lose some lbs… and if I’m being truly honest, a few headaches too. I’d like to step into my final semester of college in a healthy, fresh state of mind. So far I’m loving the benefits of avoiding the alchy. I’m writing more, sleeping better, weighing less, and remembering the memories I make.
If you’d like to participate in the remainder of summer sober challenge with me below is a list of Low Cal “mocktails” that are super yummy all under 40 calories! Perfect for those who want to stay on the diet track, but still want to hang with the girls and look the part! My fav is the Faux-Ito, or a hangover free version of the infamous mojito!
