So I talked last week about my sixty day challenge and I promised I would update y'all on how I was doing!
Last week was hard! The no shopping wasn't the hardest part, it was the no drinking. I had a long week last week and we had a 3 day weekend.
Friday night we went to dinner with friends and I honestly didn't feel the need to drink, I obviously wanted a margarita but I didn't drink at all!
Saturday we ran some errands and didn't really have any plans for the evening so I though I would be ok. We met up with our two friends who are moving to Chicago and sadly realized that this was our last weekend with them and all our mutual friends, not to mention it was Erin's birthday. So Erin and I shared a bottle of wine and we went to see a movie. Harmless, I stopped drinking so I could feel healthier so I do not in any way feel bad about that glass or two of wine.
Monday was my bad day. It started with everyone having off of work and enjoying the gorgeous Monday that it was. We had tickets to a 2pm Bobcats game and with all the boys drinking and enjoying the day I decided to open a bottle of champagne. I didn't spend money on alcohol, I already had the bottle from the holidays and I felt in good health.
Then I started feeling awful, I don't know if it was just crappy Trader Joe's champagne or what but I felt lethargic, dehydrated and so tired after drinking it. I started chugging water and ended up going to bed at 7:30 Monday night.
Yes, I believe I was being punished for drinking when I promised myself I wouldn't! Darn me!
I felt no need to shop all week but it sucked going to Target and only getting shampoo and toothpaste. whomp!
I need to learn to stay on track and tell myself that I will only get really disappointed in myself the next day if I choose to drink.
I'm not starting the sixty days over, I just need to stick to them and think before I act. Stay away from all our friends drinking in groups and just keep telling myself that I can do this!
THANK YOU to everyone for the supportive comments and words! Y'all are the best readers ever and I hope you don't loose faith in me, I swear if I can do this, ANYONE CAN!
Happy Wednesday Y'all!
I think as long as you are aware of what you are doing and keeping it within reason YOU ARE FINE! I don't think I could even take this challenge on!ReplyDelete
