UGHHHHH. Yesterday was just so irritating. Joe drank from around 5 pm Friday until basically 9 pm last night. I'm so done. He promised he wasn't going to drink anymore and I have some leverage this time....
He bought a REALLY expensive guitar on Friday. There were only 150 of them made. He put it on my credit card which has a credit limit of $2000. He had owned the same guitar a few years ago and we paid $1000 for it, but had to sell it for less than half that when we moved to NH. He found the same one used in good condition for $799. With shipping it cost us $850. So, that's on it's way, and I've made it clear to Joe that it's either the guitar of his dreams, or beer. If he even ASKS to buy beer again, I'm selling the guitar and I don't care if I only get $200 for it. And he will never again buy a guitar with my money. End of story.
Joe is a very talented musician, he taught himself guitar in middle school and can play just about any instrument, but guitar is his favorite. We currently own an acoustic as well as a mandolin. I know how much he's wanted to replace his Takamine (the one he just bought) and I do think this will help keep him on the straight and narrow. It really, really sucks that I have to treat my husband this way- basically I have to set rules in place in order for him to behave, and he's turning 34 a month from today. It's sad and ridiculous that he can't control his drinking. I guess I am just lucky that he hasn't been drinking a lot lately. It's much better than it was when we first got married. But, still, it's irresponsbile, unhealthy, and unsafe. And I'm done with it.
Anyway, moving on. Yesterday wasn't a good day for my diet. I was just so frustrated. I ate McDonald's (a breakfast sandwich) AND Subway (a footlong). And a smidge of ice cream. And basically just didn't care. So, I'm expecting a gain tomorrow when I weigh in. Definitely NOT expecting to have lost 3 lbs which was my goal. So, I'm planning a lower-carb menu for the week. Not completely carb-free, or sugar-free, like South Beach. But just...really going to try to amp up the veggies and lean proteins and cut out the yogurt and creamer in my coffee, and limit myself to one piece of fruit a day.
This morning I had two eggs and two pieces of toast, and I'm aiming to drink three liters of water since my water intake suffers on the weekend. I drank a lot last night, I was super thirsty, but usually I suck.
Just had to send Chloe to her room for yelling at Spencer. She's been a real turd lately and it's very stressful. Joe will probably be asleep all day (HAH- I hope he misses the Super Bowl, I'm sure as hell not waking him for it) because he stayed up all Friday and Saturday. I have homework to do so that's next on my agenda...
Happy Sunday, Sparkers!
