We went to dinner at a friend's house last night and I still managed to stay within my calorie range for the day! Win! Now that she's pregnant, she is really making sure to eat a lot of veggies, which is awesome. We do dinner at each other's houses almost weekly. (Yes, this is our 1 friend in the area [well, 2 but they're married, so it's like 1 friend unit] ). I don't usually drink on weekdays (even before the last blog), so dinner last night was fine with J and friend's husband drinking.
Things coming up...
So I'm supposed to get tickets to a wine festival May 10th for my mom for mother's day.
I still haven't decided if I'm going to back out or not. I would feel bad backing out since we've talked about going for a few months now, and my grandma would be coming too... sigh. I can't decide if I should test the waters of 1 drink per day here, go but not drink anything or tell my mom and grandma we can't go. It would be pretty easy to stick to 1 drink since someone (AKA me because I'm not a mom, so mother's day isn't my holiday) would have to drive us there and back.
Beach weekend (May 16). J's parents are going to Florida for a month, so each of the siblings are spending a weekend at their house (in OBX, so totally awesome). J decided to invite 11 people, so it will definitely be a party weekend
. Honestly, I don't want to drink water the whole time
I want to enjoy a long weekend with friends and family (2 of my siblings are coming) and not feel like the lame person with no self control who can't participate with everyone.
So now I realize that is sounds like I want to back out of "I quit drinking." In a way, I do. I want to be a moderate drinker. I want to have 1 drink and be done. I talked to J about it last night and he thinks that 1 drink is doable. My dad also nicknamed him Switzerland because he is always neutral...
, so I'm not 100% sure if he is agreeing with me or if he thinks it really is an okay idea.
Thoughts? Is 1 drink per day during the upcoming events a slippery slope?
