Alcohol & well-being

Hello everyone,

Back again for another post discussing why I drink alcohol and how it adds value to my life. I have had clients ask me if I have had to eliminate alcohol from my lifestyle & the answer is NO. I have never thought to eliminate it from my lifestyle no matter what goals I had in mine for myself physically. because for me, my health/wellness is beyond physical appearances.

Alcohol does not have any benefits for your physique & performance – True!

Including alcohol as part of my lifestyle has helped me:

  1. Improve mental health
  2. Reduce stress
  3. Better sleep
  4. Improve relationships

= Positive impact on my life. Many times having a glass of wine with some friends and unwinding has helped me to destress, while also spending time with friends/family and engaging in conversation. I value my relationships and being able to unwind after a long week from work.

In moderation, alcohol can be tracked and accounted for in your macros. I have always preached moderation is key! Excess amounts of alcohol will inhibit muscle growth , as well as contribute to other health factors that I will speak about in later blog post.

I know not everyone in the world drinks, some people prefer to refrain from it for religious purposes or due to the addictive properties & I would NEVER preach nor recommend drinking alcohol to anyone but I wanted to make it clear as to why I choose to include it in my lifestyle & how I can still track it like anything else I eat or drink. At the end of the day, is a personal decision as to whether you choose to drink or not.

You can assume I have a love for fitness & a love for Wonderwoman -- both assumptions are correct. I am an ACSM certified personal trainer of 7+ years -- I currently reside in Ohio and live a simplistic life at the age of 29. If I am not lifting, I am eating, sleeping, traveling, exploring, or movie watching. I recently moved during a pandemic, now I am focused on self care (self love), building a business of my own in personal training, becoming a professional blogger, starting a podcast and doing things that make me happy! I am a sister, daughter, and loyal friend --- I love everyone's dog and I am on a mission to pet as many dogs as possible everywhere I go! LOL. My mission is to talk health (physical/mental), design programming, motivational speak, learn, grow, prosper, build others and make as many people smile as possible because I want nothing more than to be the change I seek in the world.
