Today is Day 1 of my 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge. To kick off things off, I decided to create a new playlist of the best drinking songs. Hey, if I can’t drink the stuff why not listen to songs about it while working out. I’m off to a pretty good start with a nice variety of music styles – from swing to blues to Irish folk.

The list isn’t complete. It lacks Reggae. I need something other than UB40’s Red Red Wine. I welcome suggestions from the Peanut Gallery.

40 Oz to Freedom – Sublime
All I Wanna Do – – Sheryl Crow
American Honky Tonk Bar Association – Garth Brooks
Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers – ZZ Top
Brass Monkey – Beastie Boys
Drunk Daddy – Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Drunken Lazy Bastards – The Pogues
Drunken Lullabies – Flogging Molly

Since I’ve hit a plateau I decided to do a no alcohol challenge. I’m starting on August 1 – just to make it easier to track. Plus it gives me time to get rid of the bottle of white wine in my kitchen.

Not that I drink heavily, but I saw my alcohol intake go way up in July. I hit a crescendo last week with the celebration of Mr. Dottotrot’s e-book release.  Up until this month’s festivities, I limited my alcohol intake to twice a month. And no more than 2 drinks on those days.

This should jump-start my weight loss. After all, alcohol is mostly sugar. And sugar is a very bad carb.
