My Eats and Weight 1/5 – 1/11

I have a confession to make – I like to have a light beer after work as well as a few drinks on the nights before I have a day off. Yes, it’s true, and I fear that it’s hindering my weight loss attempts. If you’re following my blog closely (and see the posts below in regards to my weight), you’ll see that I’m eating well enough and less than usual, but heck, I don’t post my drinks! And that, my friends, is most likely the culprit for my weight being so steady around 156-157 lbs.

So it’s time to cut back on the drinking. I figure I can drink on my days off, but on the nights when I have to get up in the morning, I’m going to cut it out.
