I can still do Wine Wednesday posts even though I'm not drinking during the week, right?
I hope so, because I wrote this despite the crazy day I've had!
I'm not going to lie, giving up the nightly wine has been the hardest part of my "diet/detox."
Last week was
unbearable rough. Every evening I started thinking about wine while cooking, then eating, then bathing Baby Girl, then watching TV. It's not that I think I need it or that I can't live without it. It's just that wine has become a reward for getting through the day, a nightly habit that I looked forward to, a tasty little escape from reality.
But, I've been staying strong and I CAN DO THIS!
When I start to feel weak, I think about the good this is doing for my body, the calories I'm not consuming, and how amazing that first glass on Friday is going to taste.
It also helps to daydream about taking this brilliant contraption...
...to one of these perfect, wine-sipping slices of heaven.
Is anyone doing the diet with me? How's it going?
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? It's supposed to rain during the Cooper River Ridge Run on Saturday morning. Any chance they'll cancel it and I can sleep in because we're kid free this weekend? No, I didn't think so. Ugh. Why did I sign up for it again? I must have been drinking.... Heavily.
