Say no to Tequila

That is my life lesson. No, no, no tequila. As much as, at the time, you are like a liquid sombrero – fun and happy and all that jazz – but NOT SO the morning after. Not so.

This infamous hangover I lament was yesterday, not today, but I’m still vehement.

My head was so, so fuzzy and horrible. It was like being smothered by an obese sheep.

Yes I did just type obese sheep into google

But hangovers aside, I am fairly fed up today. An eventful and traumatic lunch break saw me running through turrential rain in a tiny skirt and sleeveless blouse, no cardi or tights to speak of – let alone an umbrella! So now I’m sitting at reception looking, according to my friend in IT, like a drowned rat (he said that in between snorts of laughter) feeling less than content.

What’s more I’m morally slapping my own face because I MAJORLY screwed up on saturday night. Again, I blame the tequila, but I got together with a guy I did NOT want to do that with, ever, simply because our history is not the best. And he used to date one of my best friends.

These last few days have not been the best.

However. Now is the part of the post where I take a deep breath and talk about good things. Like juice! Juice is good. And Spirulina energy balls from my local health store.

Every morning I’ve been making myself a lovely, refreshing and filling juice to enjoy, and it’s such a good start to the day! I have an energy ball or a handful of hazlenuts when I wake up, then pop off on my morning jog. When I return, that glass of juice looks and tastes so damn good!

This morning I juiced up:

I apple,

2 celery sticks,

1/2 cup frozen berries, mixed

handful of grapes

Inch of ginger

1/4 cucumber

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I plan to get kiwis after work today from the market because they are the best in a morning juice šŸ™‚

Counselling is helping a lot with my eating though recent emotional events set me back and I started to revert to the old, not-so-good me. She suggested I buy a journal, which I did, and also that I write down 3 things I’m grateful for each day for a week, as well as doing one nice thing for myself every day. The nice thing, I’ve been sticking to – yesterday it was a really pretty yellow flower from my walk home, now in a jar on my windowsill – but I’m actually finding the first task quite tough. However.

  1. I am grateful for fruit.
  2. I am grateful for the juiceĀ I make with fruit.
  3. I am grateful for spirulina.
  4. I am NOTĀ grateful for tequila. Or rain.

C’est tout x
