Let me start by saying I get THE WORST hangovers EVER! Like I cannot physically get out of bed and think I might die kind of hangovers. For any normal person, this may deter them from drinking in such large quantities but I am not one such person.
In my defence I’m usually just super thirsty, then further dehydrated by the alcohol, thus order more – if someone could point me in the direction of some water at this stage that’d be fab cause I clearly forget that it exists and happens to be y’know, the most hydrating thing ever.
I’m going to liken hangovers to child birth – stick with me here cause no I obviously haven’t had a child if I’m likening it to hangovers BUT I’m talking about the after math, the OMG THAT WAS AWFUL IM NEVER DOING IT AGAIN and then oops your pregnant/hanging beyond belief! (Hopefully not both!)
I was in this sorry state last weekend (hungover not pregnant) and it threw me so out of whack that I’ve only just got back on top of my game. I’d been so productive at the beginning of the year and got myself into a nice little routine of gym, keeping the flat tidy, upping my self care and BAM! I got drunk and ruined it all!
I was in bed ALL weekend, only leaving to lay on my friends sofa and eat mozzarella sticks whilst watching Disney films. I ordered the most gigantic dominos all to myself, ate sweets, fizzy drinks, didn’t go to the gym. I was in a bad way and it left me in such a funk.
I HATE being hungover and I hate losing my weekends to this foul beast, it’s the most frustrating thing and it’s never worth it. I’m not even the type of person who needs to get smashed to have a good time which annoys me even more when I do.
This post is basically a release of negativity for me because I beat myself up SO MUCH when I do this. I want to be able to read this back and be like yeah babe it’s not worth it just have a couple of glasses of wine this time or y’know none at all!
I get so on track with my fitness and eat reasonable well and then throw it all away for one drunken night that makes me miserable! I take my hat off to those with self control – teach me your ways! Maybe I’ll just drive everywhere then I won’t have a choice and I’ll wake up with a fist pump, feeling fresh as a daisy with no regrets.
I’m not saying I’m going to stop drinking completely cause I like a cheeky tipple as much as the next person but as with anything, it’s about moderation and self control.
I want my liver to hold out for all my years, I want beautiful glowy skin, I want rock hard abs (LOLZ) and I won’t get any of those things binge drinking then eating through my hangover – your not
16 18 anymore Laura …. get a grip!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who goes through this!
Peace and love xoxo
