….OR You can’t look like Twiggy if you drink like Miss Piggy! Does anyone even remember Twiggy anymore? I had the recent good fortune to win 6 (SIX) WEEKS with a personal trainer at a local gym plus the vitamins and supplements from GNC for the same period of time! WooHoooo! On the other hand, I am now closely monitoring my alcohol consumption and also trying to justify it as well.
I notice when I am trudging to nowhere on the treadmill, I occasionally glance (peer) at the calories burned and visualize them in “Glasses of Wine Burned”. I wish the elliptical machine, stairmaster and treadmill would have an icon of wine glasses. As you burned 100 calories, a glass would fill with a robust red color! At the point when you eventually surpass 2 glasses, the additional calories- burned would be gravy. Actually a bonus, in less fattening terminology.
I searched online to gather more information to support the reason I can continue with moderate wine drinking while dieting and found Myth Busters about Wine and another worthwhile site, a wine calorie counter. Bear in mind that most of these charts are based on 5 oz. glasses. Ultimately it appears that on average it comes down to approximately 20 calories per ounce or 120 calories for a six-ounce glass!
I am now barely two weeks in and am losing a couple of inches, gaining muscle but still have a long way to go abdominally, or is that I have an abominably long way to go? Either way, I have minimized my wine drinking and wine tasting a tad and is the reason this post is not highlighting one of our wonderful Virginia wineries! Look for another post after Tuesday when I have the luxury of a gourmet dinner presented by Loudoun County’s French Chef William Walden of The Goodstone Inn and Estate and pairings of award-winning Loudoun wines! My trainer, Jose, said some extra treadmill time the day of and day after and I shouldn’t be too far off track. I like Jose 🙂
