Okay, so we are past the halfway point!After my little blip last week I went through a variety of emotions. I was on such a high from doing so well, and then I let it slip through the cracks. I know I said last week that I was just going to pick myself back up and keep on going and not let it get me down. But throughout the week it did kinda get me down. Overall, Iâm still feeling pretty good about my accomplishments. I did go a full 3 weeks before I had a slip and thatâs a lot more than Iâve done in the past. I still havenât weighed myself so I donât know if Iâve lost any weight â though Jessica did say in our last session that she could see some changes, so - YAY! Iâve got a full three weeks to go and I really want to make them count. Iâm pumped for my session with Jessica tomorrow and Iâve got a lot of great recipes lined up for the coming weeks. I even went out to see my boyfriendâs band play on Saturday night and didnât drink! We were only out for a couple hours and it was fun but man was I tiredâthey didnât go on till midnight and I'm used to being in bed by 10pm! And Sunday we went out for lunch and people at the table were having wineâbut I stuck to my WATER! I will admit, however, that even though I feel great and thereâs all these benefits to eating well and working out and avoiding alcohol, I still canât manage to find that place where Iâm happy ABOUT it. I still feel sort of annoyed and angry that I have to restrict myself from doing something I like doingâdrinking!
Jessica asked me if itâs the taste of alcohol that I find appealing or what it does to my state of mind. And the answer is both. I love a crisp glass of pinot on a warm day or a nice red wine with a steak (hey itâs gluten free!). And I like being drunkâ¦itâs FUN. But, as Iâve said in most of my blog posts I know that to reach my goals I canât be out indulging in wine all the time. Just as someone who loves chocolate canât expect to eat cake everyday and lose weight. (FYI I love chocolate - haha! - but donât find it that hard to stay away from.)
So, I will continue on sans-wine and when Iâm in a bikini on a beach somewhere after all the hard work and sacrfices my wine will taste THAT much better! ;)
