Last weekend I took my Top Ten Reasons to Ditch the Diet a bit too far!
Now, I am a big fan of a few wines on a Sunday afternoon. Give me some kind of cheese platter, and I’m happy as a pig in muck! Last Sunday I did just that, however a few wines turned into a couple of bottles! Of course I thought I was highly entertaining, in reality I was just embarrassing. The influence on my two girls, is what I regret most.
So, I have decided to make myself accountable, and attempt to give my body and my family a break from wine. Now, I am not as committed as Vanessa at onethousandsingledays, she is going single for 1000 days, to try to find love in other parts of her life. I love the concept, and I am going to take inspiration from her, and not have a wine till my birthday! 69 alcohol free days! I know it doesn’t sound like much, but coming from someone who tried and failed dry July, it will be a challenge.
I hope that when I have a drink again, I will appreciate it more and learn about moderation. I am using this post as a way of being accountable. If it is in writing for all to see, then I am more likely to stick to it. I’ll keep you updated with how I’m going! Wish me luck!
