My social life vs. My six pack
I'm 28. I live in New York City. Much of my social life is standing around a bar stool or sitting at a booth stuffing my face. This gets tricky while I'm on my quest to lose 40 pounds. Now, am I cool? Absolutely. Still fat? Yep.
The problem is, I feel like I have to make a choice between enjoying myself, my friends and my city or my six pack. Don't get me wrong, I want that six pack, hell I'll take a two pack, but not at the expense of my social life. Now, I've made some strides... gym with co-workers instead of bar with co-workers, snacking on carrots instead of chips, but is it enough?
I know, I'm complaining...it's probably because I'm hungry. I'm just tryna figure out a way to be cool AND healthy.
How do you balance your social life and your healthy lifestyle?
