Had a hard day of work and finding it difficult to avoid that after work drink? Take a look at our tips to help you stay on track and booze and sugar free this February.
- Hide the booze.
Get rid of it, donate it to a worthy charity, make it into furniture or give to your neighbour. Anything. Just don’t have it around the house.
- Hide the wine glasses.
There’s no point doing the above if you’re reminded what you’re missing every time you open the kitchen cupboards.
- Discuss FebFastwith your partner.
‘DON’T YOU KNOW I’M DOING FEBFAST!’ is one line you don’t want to hear coming out of your mouth. Chat through some house-rules: drinking in front of each other, drinking at dinner etc etc. Do this now. Why not ask them to sign up and do it together?
- Vino trickery.
Some fasters pour their favourite soft drink into a wine glass. Your brain will relax back into its deckchair, pick up the crossword and think about what’s for dinner. No alarms and no surprises.
- Experiment with soft drinks.
Chances are the soft drinks aisle at your local supermarket gets just 30 seconds of trolley time…in Feb, slow down and experiment a bit. You might waste a little money on carbonated refreshment – but it’s nothing compared to the cash you’re saving by not popping next door for a couple of bottles of Chardonnay. Just check the sugar content if you’re doing FebFast Sugar too.
- Rewards. Re-think ’em.
A tough day at work? A long day with the kids? A phone call with the parents about blah, blah, blah? We all need rewards and, right now, the fridge is not holding the answers. Do not wait till Feb 1st – sit down now and write some rewards. Get imaginative coz you’ll be annoyed with yourself if you hit the chocolate. Maybe it’s 30 minutes with a game you wanted to play? A new book? Somewhere new for dinner?
Most importantly, make sure you know the main goal you want to achieve through all this. Whether it’s a few inches off the waistline or a clear head on Saturday morning, write your goals down, stick them on the wall. It works for the best sports teams in the world. It’ll work for you. Good luck!
