Slowin' the roll...then pickin' it back up again...

I took it down a notch with the energy level in the car this morning...but make no mistake...I was belting this gem out on Long Beach Blvd. this morning like I was singing for my life.  Bowie makes my heart happy.

On another note...I have been stepping up my activity level and trying to eat healthy over the last few weeks.  I joined a sort of biggest loser thing at work and only lost .7lbs this past week...but I guess it's better than nothing. I attribute the fact that I haven't lost any more than that to the vast amount of alcohol (namely beer) that I consumed over the weekend.  If I could somehow kick my weekend beer binges I would probably be in great shape...I just can't seem to let it go!  It starts with the taste of the salt crystals on the rim and then the lemony beer flavor rushes into the mouth and down the throat and always seems to leave me wanting more!  I end up consuming half my body weight in ounces of beer and have a good time until I step on the scale the next morning and am horrified by the number that flashes up at me. I then spend the rest of the week working it off only to be right back where I was the week before.  Ugh!  As every weekend approaches I tell myself "Don't overdo it this weekend Jessica.  Just have a couple drinks and cut it off.  If you reach your fourth beer and find yourself wanting to order the fifth just hold back.  PLEASE!!! HOLD BACK!!!  You will regret it in the morning if you don't!!!"  But then I've just finished my fourth beer and I really want a fifth and when I'm in the moment I say "Ah...what the hell...what's one more beer?"  and go for it.  One day I think it will sink in that I need to let go of the extreme drinking in order to lose the weight...I just hope it happens sooner rather than later!  My name is Jessica and I am a weekend alcoholic.  Is that my first step?  BAM!

haha...this girl loooooooooooooves her beer (this pic was saved on my work computer...awesome...)...
