Wine and dieting.
Ok. Confession time.
My original resolution was to drink wine on the weekends only. Ha! Last night I lasted about 1 minute. I had a really long day. Got home a little later than usual. And before I knew it I was pouring myself a glass of wine. It's ok. We have these teeny tiny little chardonnay glasses. I poured in 4oz. Which isn't much. I felt much better, and it didn't throw off my day.
It's all about moderation. One small glass is better than two large glasses. So I guess I'm still on track. Sort of. I have lost 5lbs so far, which is awe-some. The 10in10 challenge is keeping me motivated.
Bottomline, I'm doing ok on the diet - even if I'm cheating a little. I'm exercising again. I did 20 minutes of pilates this morning. And I'm so proud of Don, he's going to the gym every other day. And today he is trying an intro to yoga class. I love that he's getting into it. Elli is concerned because he hasn't made any friends at the club yet. Love her.
So as far as my resolutions go, I'm doing pretty well except for the whining. This is what I really need to work on. I kinda whined a little during the day. Ok, I whined a lot. But I stopped when I realized I was whining. Ok, ok, maybe my friend James pointed it out. I'm trying really hard to keep my happy game face on - but I have to admit it's hard. REALLY HARD.
Someone needs to taser me to really snap me out of it. Just kidding! I'm sure I would have a line of volunteers at my office door if I told them they could taser me!!!
OH! I did get some news this week that will change my life in two weeks. My main contact at my client has resigned. He is gone as of January 31. This is big news. For those of you that know me well, you know what I'm talking about. I have no idea what the future holds, but a new chapter is about to begin.
