Tantrum over: Ready to make a commitment

Thursday, August 01, 2013

It's been about a week since I posted about my inner three-year-old, who was rebelling at the idea of giving up coffee and alcohol. Thank you so much to those Sparkers who reinforced what I already know—that drinking alcohol in particular has been hurting my progress, and my health. I also read this article earlier in the week:

Okay, the tantrum is over. I'm done pouting about it, and I'm going to commit to no alcohol for the next two weeks. Two weeks from today, I'm headed to Chicago for an annual getaway weekend, and I know there will be some drinking then! But not before then.

I'm also going to blog about how I feel over the next two weeks, so that when I get home from Chicago I can go back and read those posts.

In the meantime, I'm getting back into the habit of drinking green tea. Coffee: I'll leave it at half a cup a day for now. Can't be perfect all the time!

    I share in your dread of giving up the "A"...I too need to commitment to no wine drinking even if it's for a short time (meaning 1 week to steps! LOL) Please do blog on your progress. You never know...maybe I'll become inspired. In the meantime enjoy your getaway and keep on keeping on. emoticon
