So, what did I learn this week?
I learnt that I don’t handle wine very well when I go out.
I’ve been on a diet for a week and a half now and it’s going really well. I’ve dropped about half a stone.
For most of that time, I haven’t had any alcohol, however, I went over the road to our local with a friend on Thursday evening and although I’m usually a lager lady when I go out, I decided to stick to wine.
I did my research. A pint of my usual favourite, Kronenbourg 1664, is around 225 calories a pint but a large 250ml glass of Pinot is only 175.
Well, three glasses later I just needed to get home and go to bed. Thankfully I woke up fine the next day.
Anyway, I went out last night to see a mate and his band play at a pub in town and I thought I’d give the wine another go.
This time I wasn’t so lucky.
I was sick as a parrot when I got in, and although I’m not feeling sick this morning or even have a headache, I’m still not feeling great overall.
Seriously considering limiting myself to just two alcoholic drinks when I go out from now on and then sticking to soft drinks. I just can’t handle the alcohol like I used to anymore.
So today will be spent with my feet up on the sofa.
