For some people, this will be a breeze. For others, it might be a bit of a challenge. There was an article from Redbook Magazine about a woman who gave up the buzz for one whole month.
She struggled. Like me, she indulged in a glass of wine, or a drink after a hard, long day at work. "having a drink (or two, or three) was a treat—a reward to relish when life threw us stressful curveballs," Betsy Farber wrote.
Giving up meat for Lent (and counting) is much easier than I had anticipated. But I wonder if I could say the same thing when it came to giving up my bitter glass of red wine after a long day at work. I remember when I was powerlifting, drinking was kept at a cool because I cared a lot about my performance when training and when competing. As much as I like wine, I also like feeling refreshed and as healthy as possible. And maybe cutting alcohol for a month will actually do my body some good again.
I think I've got myself a new challenge...
Is this something you can see yourself doing?
