Good morning friends. DH and I split a bottle of Moscato last night. Man, it was so delicious! Had quite a food day as well. Back on the AF wagon today. Should have eating back on track as well.

Nice to see people enjoying the weekend and being aware. We had our friend stop with a bottle of wine so I did have 2 glasses with him. Today should be AF unless something changes.
Now going to do stretches and I am going to try and start getting up earlier. I read in bed sometimes til after midnite so sleep til 8 or so unless brandy gets me up.I like reading in bed but also like the earlier morning hours. Has to be one or the other??
Have a good day today. another cloudy rainy day here and more apples to sweep. I think some imp is on the garage roof throwing more app;es every day! emoticon

I was AF Mon.- Thurs.
Had a double shot of blackberry brandy after work last night. We are going on the annual flood run on the motorcycle today so I will have some alcohol.

Have a good weekend!

Well Mandy, I guess that was good? emoticon LOL! I was 'ok' last night - had two glasses of wine at dinner and then two more when I got home. Went to bed fairly early and got a good night's sleep. Now...to see what I can do today...

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

I only had three at poker last night. YAY!! The biggest reason I was successful at drinking less, is that I was unsuccessful at poker. HA! We were home by 10:30.

Looks like one may be all the AF days I get this week. It's a start, tho. I just need to build on it. Last night wasn't AF, but not horribly bad either. I have dinner & drinks with friends scheduled for tonight - maybe I'll go AF Saturday? Stranger things have happened, I suppose.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

This week has been an every other day week. AF Mon, and Wed. Drank Tues and Thursday. I am proud of myself for last night. Only 4 beers and a small supper. Still went over my calories but not as much as usual.

I really like the dollar in the jar idea!

TGIF everyone!

My friend came over to deliver my Avon and we did it up pretty good too. Time for me to get it together again too. Linda, it is always easier to get back one day at a time and know you have the weekend to enjoy too. One step at a time during the day. I have lots of stress in my life with hubby's health plus aches and pains of my own and wine would help but that is no way to go plus I have to give hubby pills all day and am taking pain pills so lots of reasons not to over do. It is as easy or hard as we make it for ourselves.Save the drinks and wine for the weekends or special occasions.
Now wait for the pain pill to work and go and sweep and shovel crab apples into the compost and pick beans and tomatoes and do stretches if there is any energy left.
Have a great day--make it a great day emoticon emoticon

I was not af over the weekend but did not over do so I am ok with that. Now promised myself to start tracking faithfully and I tend to over do on everything when I don't have to account for it. O had my wine during the Viking game. I was ready to switch to brandy after the half but didn't. They were terrible after we all thought we finally had a good team. sadly, we were mistaken emoticon
More wind and cold and more apples to sweep. clear blue sky today and a little cool.
Good job everybody, even you Linda as you aren't giving up. If we can help in any way, let us know.
emoticon together!!

AF Saturday. Woke up feeling refreshed and energized Sunday. Took the kids to the apple orchard, ran some errands then spent a few hours trying to hook up my daughters new TV and Cable. That can drive ya to drink for sure! Poor thing spent all her summer babysitting money on a TV that she cant even watch til next week. We have to have a tech come out. I think they gave us a faulty box.. anyway. My husband and I planned to stay home to watch the Bears play but then he remembered he had something to take care of at the bar he manages so off we went! Had a great time and the Bears win! emoticon .

Ended up being AF on Sunday as well. That means I only had one drinking day last week. Yay! Will make up for it this week as I have bunco on Tuesday and will enjoy a beer (or 4) that night. Everyone have a great week.

Good morning, ladies. AF Saturday for me. Our local Altrusans host a craft show here three times a year. This year, I'm the chair. Phew! What a job. It is this weekend and it is my job to organize the whole thing, make sure it runs smoothly, and fill in the gaps where any work is needed. I was on my feet for 11 hours yesterday. Today our hours are only 10-4, but we have to tear down the concession stand and kitchen and get it all cleaned up. Since I was AF yesterday, I may just have a beverage this evening.

Everyone have a great day!

I'm aiming for a restart come Monday. Maybe I can pull of another good week, at least. It's been a while - I need one. Haven't been good this weekend - drank WAY too much yesterday. So far I've been 'ok' today. Should go to bed early to nail that!

emoticon i have been mixing AF days and days when i have had no more than 1 or 2 of anything at any time lately which is great for me emoticon but i do need to do better. Today I will have a glass of wine with my granddaughter and one or two later with dinner as my daughter is cooking today. My granddaughter and I were wondering if there are any wine boxes for a red blend and she found one so we will try it out today.
Idletyme has been notified by Sparks to quit posting here. I looked at her page and she seems like a nice lady, loves NCIS and Harry Potter as i do, I will never understand why this challenge seems to challenge them to post???? I hope she will not persist, would not be a good idea. Sparks does enforce the rules, no jail time tho--Ha!
enuff of that. It is cool here but a beautiful day. everybody enjoy the weekend. Georgine emoticon

I was not AF yesterday. I am on a bad streak and need to get off this crazy train. I have plans tonight to meet for drinks, with the girls from work. I am sure Sunday I will throw back a few during the football game. Monday is a new fresh start.

Amanda, I understand completely! We started having this conversation about planning what nights we would drink and it sounded crazy. I mean really! I feel like if it has to be talked about in detail like we do, we both have a problem. So I told him, do what you have to do but don't get mad at me when I don't follow along! I wish I had his problems. He is the type that can eat and drink whatever he wants and never gain a pound.

I haven't had a stellar week (far from it), but my weight is down. Go figure. Trying to maintain that, at least, through the weekend. Going for a reset/restart next week.

All I have to say is that my boyfriend is a bad influence. I am usually AF during the week. I texted him from work last night to tell him that I wouldnt be working OT. He asks if I would like a drink when I got home. Of course, I could say no but it did sound good. So I had my how ever many shots of blackberry brandy on the rocks.

Jennifer - talking about it is a great start! I hope ya'll are able to get on the same page. I feel your pain, but there came a time in my marriage when I decided that I was going to do better, with or without him. I am responsible for me.

Sun - Thur = AF. Woot!
Yesterday was DH's birthday. Today we are going out to eat at a steakhouse that is out on this ranch in the middle of nowhere. The atmosphere and food are amazing. Then it will be poker and of course, beer. I've had 5 the last two Fridays in a row. 4-5 is the goal. We will see how it goes.

I was not AF AGAIN yesterday. But I had a good conversation with my husband to let him know how much this bad habit is hurting me. He agreed to making a plan and trying to stick with it, so we will see......

Was not AF yesterday, but was in calorie range. (That's something) Busy day today, and a late day as well. Probably won't get home until 8pm or so. Maybe AF today? We'll see.

Jennifer - the twogrand app is a photo food tracker. Think of instagram with all food. I've found it to be VERY effective. You really think about going back for seconds if you have to post a picture of it. I also find myself adding more veggies to my plate for a more impressive pic. If you try it, add me. I'm amanda79

Sun - Wed = AF
Having a great week with nutrition and exercise. Hope everyone has a great day!

Brrr! Just home from an out of town clinic and I am freezing. One thing I have noticed now I am close to goal that I get cold easily. Now i know why my mother had her house in the upper 80s or more!!!I didn't like that either .Not sure how I can cover everything in the garden if they predict frost. Exercise is sweeping the apples that are coming down fast in this wind.
I have not been AF but just a glass of wine and one drink yesterday and one drink with my son before he left emoticon today Now I want hot coffee!!
Jennifer, I keep telling myself one day at a time and/or one step at a time but I need to get on it too. As I said to Mandy, it is harder not to indulge when those around you and/or your hubby are drinking too. Mandy did a great job, I am not sure I would have done as well. Years back I would not stop at one or 2 either. Now I tell myself as with eating, nobody is going to take it away and moderation and planning ahead are good and nobody has said I can't ever have any again. I especially don't like putting drinks and wine into the tracker when I have gone over, sure makes you look at what you are doing.!! Trouble is , if i go over I don't want to track what i did. I also have to deal with John's meds "all day" and I don't want to mess up.Helps keep me on track.
Linda, we are all in the same boat, just different lives and circumstances. I should be good til the girls come to cook on Sat. or Sun. I will share my white wine with my granddaughter as we usually do.I have found I can still over do brandy when the kids are here , i guess i relax a little too much!!
Keep sharing everyone, we are all human, Georgine

Not having a good week on alcohol=bad. Not caring=worse. But at least I'm checking in! I'm AF so far today, but I'm still at work where none is allowed, lol! I've got stuff to do this evening so I'll stay AF at least until that's done. Not making any promises after that...

Jennifer - Baby steps is how I got here. I cut out one day of drinking per week and lived there for a while. Then I cut out another. If you try to do too much at once it seems overwhelming. Also, when I started seeing the change that it made in my body (lighter weight, more muscle tone) I was motivated to keep going. You can do it!


Sun - Tue = AF
I started a new weightlifting routine at my gym. My whole body is pleasantly sore. Food is going really well too. Still using the twogrand app and loving it.

So my kids are coming home with all of these permission slips for school activities. I do want them to participate and be involved so of course I sign and commit to being there for support. It kinda sounds sad to say but it also gives me a reason to keep busy instead of having happy hour so much!

The plan is to be AF tonight. I drank 4 days in a row! I have got to get a grip!

Idletyme, I don't know what makes you non-drinkers think it is ok to post on a challenge not meant for you. There are rules in Sparkspeople and they are enforced. If you persist on posting to this challenge i will report you as i had to do with another person. Apparently you have too much Idleyme on your hands! Find other interests that apply to you and leave others alone.

AF every other day but plan to be AF now. Yesterday was a beautiful day and I used to sit outside with my brandy and a good book so decided to take a glass of wine and sit with my husband but I met him coming back inside as the wind was too strong. I sat in my chair and enjoyed my wine and the book anyway, weather has turned cloud, rainy and cool now.

That is really good Amanda. That is where I want to be as well. How long did it take for you to get there?

I drank so much I don't even want to talk about my weekend, but here goes! My confession....Friday had a wonderful time with my hubby drinking and dancing! Saturday hung over for the graduation but I made it! After party had a Bloody Mary...aka hair of the dog. I felt better so I had another and that turned into a shot then an amaretto stone sour, and then 2 angry orchards and a few more shots! I think I drank myself sober. Then Sunday I was NOT going to drink. Took my son to his competition. (he did great by the way...2 silver metals!) After wards took him out for ice cream. Then I met my husband at the bar he manages and before I could say I just wanted a water there was an open beer sitting in front of me. I obviously have no self control so bottoms up! had about 4 beers and 2 shots of goldschlager. sigh....

Had a so-so weekend. Plans out for dinner tonight so I'll probably have a glass of wine (or two). If I hold it to that, I'll consider it success.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Friday night I came home from work & there was a bottle of blackberry brandy sitting on the kitchen table. My boyfriend had picked it up for me. I dont even know how much I had. He put it on ice for me but it looked like about 5 shots.

Saturday night we went to the races & I had 1 razberita. I would have had more but it was chilly out & they just make me more cold.

Have a Great Sunday!

The plan worked like a charm! I sipped on my tea all night. When friends would ask why I wasn't drinking (they are so thoughtful-ha!) I said that I would probably have one later. Once my tea was gone, I got a beer but only drank about half of it. YAY!

AF Thursday and yesterday, it is a start anyway. $2 in my jar, i know i owe me more but didn't keep track so i lose it. Apple tree is loaded so there is my exercise in the coming days. can't let them stay on the patio as they are slippery. I found a tv channel that is showing good mysteries. Told my hubby i should get a glass of wine and sit in my robe and enjoy--ha!
Have a good day, remember it is ok to have fun on the days we get to go out after a busy week. emoticon together.

Progress is a beautiful thing, right? For a Friday night, I didn't do too bad either. Not sure exactly how much as I couldn't measure it, but I had approximately a bottle of wine. Don't know what my plans are for tonight. Will probably have a few drinks - hopefully less than last night.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Good morning ladies!
I had 5 beers at poker last night. There was a time when that would have been just the tip of the iceberg. I drank like that 3+ nights per week. Even though I wish I would have kept it to 3 or 4, I am proud of the progress I've made.
We are playing cards at our house tonight. I think I'll pick me up a special non-alcoholic beverage to sip on instead. They have these delicious diet flavored teas at sonic now. Yeah. That's the plan!

Everyone have a great day!

Trying to ignore but wow......ok...moving on! It is funny in a way.

So, its Friday! Feeling the 3pm itch again. Plus its the end of the week BUT, I really should stay AF. Tomorrow I have a college graduation to attend then a grad party. Sunday my son competes in a karate tournament. So I have a busy weekend ahead and don't want to feel hung over. I am bummed that I will not be watching the Chicago Bears 1st game of the year, but I wouldn't miss my son compete!

obviously these people can't read either or are just obstinate or have no respect for other Sparkers. i wonder how these people would like it if we all went on their teams and began expressing our opinions etc. Anyway, hopefully they will go away so i don't have to ask Sparkpeople for help once again.
i have so many teams etc. I certainly don't want to waste my time posting to subjects that don't apply to me. Let's hope that one will be the last one.
Just ignor those people and have a good weekend,
So far so good for me-one step at a time and one day at a time!! emoticon together

Mandy, feeling you on the not knowing how hard I want to try emoticon . I was AF yesterday for 2 this week...or was it 3? Getting sick made me forget! I'm going out for dinner with friends, so hoping to not go too far out of bounds - either alcohol or calories in general!

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

Georgine, I was just about to post on your sparkpage. Glad to see you. Everyone falls off the wagon. What really matters is that we climb back up!

Mon-Thu=AF
Tonight is poker. Have been less and less moderate on Friday nights. Even as I'm about to type that I will try harder tonight, I'm not sure that I want to! We will see...

i just finished a post now i found the challenge again and Sparks comes up with that no html again and erased my post??!! I never got a chance to even see what it was i supposedly did??!! I don't even know what that means!!
I just reminded Amanda and whoever was with us at this time how I had to go to Sparkpeople to get help to get rid of that one lady that refused to quit posting here every day. It is not only against Spark rules to harass or bother others, it is also thoughtless and rude. Sometimes i think these people drank and liked it but can't anymore so they are like some smokers that quit and then lecture everyone else. As long as they go away and stay away it is best to ignor them but they are not good Sparker material.
I lost the challenge while dealing with appts. etc. and had 1 AF day and on others 1 or 2 drinks after appts. with my son. Things are not good but better and what a difference it makes for me to get back on track. Had a 4 pound gain from letting myself have the sweet stuff, did not over do on alcohol but calories are calories.
Have a good rest of the day and week, ignor the ignorant. emoticon together!! Georgine

It's reasonable a couple days a week for me. I was drinking wine most days, likely about 8 oz, and decided to cut back and increase my cardio more. There's definitely a difference in my waistline!

I used to respond to those teetotalers, but have made a decision to ignore. It is most likely that they don't even come back to see our rants.

Jennifer, when I'm feeling generous I think that people are just trolling for points when they post here with obviously no intent to participate in the challenge. That last comment, sadly, does not seem to fit that mold but is more in line with the judgement you spoke of. You would think that someone on a site primarily geared toward weight loss would have a little more empathy.

Anyhoo, I was AF yesterday. Was going to be anyway, but then I started feeling sick at the end of the day and that sealed the deal for sure. Home from work sick today - hope its just a stomach bug. At least it should keep me AF again today.

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

There is always hope!

Why do people continue to post comments about eliminating alcohol? The name of the topic is Reduce (NOT eliminate) alcohol.

If we wanted to be judged we would join a different group. We may not need it but obviously we want it! If we didn't want it we wouldn't be here! I understand that some people have to take alcohol from one extreme to the other, but some of us can live somewhere in the middle and be happy. There are a lot of things that are bad for you. Judging can be considered one of them.

So, with that being said it is Hump day and I want a drink tonight. I really want Apple-Rita's but they are way to high in calories! Wine seems to be the answer but I really have to be in the mood for that. Anyway my remaining calories for the day are 976-1326. I am thinking 4 100 cal drinks and 400 cal dinner. Sounds good to me!

Two down, Jennifer, you're on a roll! TODAY I need to start an AF roll myself. I seem to be able to get myself together fo a week here and a week there, but the times in between those 'together' weeks are just atrocious! When I really decide to, I can JUST DO IT, but then one moment of weakness, or lack of resolve, or just plain don't give a sh!t and I'm spinning off on a tangent. I guess as long as I keep coming back here there's hope, lol!

Good morning friends. I drank several on Saturday, only had one on Sunday, and none on Monday. Not too bad for a weekend at the lake. Refocused today. Already ran my three miles this morning and am enjoying a healthy breakfast.

Happy Labor Day!

I had my fill of fun this weekend. Saturday night we had our fire in the backyard & had some friends over. My friend & I shared a bottle of wine plus I had to try the frozen Mikes in the pouch.Then we ended up ordering a pizza since we only ate once that day.

On Sunday, we had my cousins birthday party bbq & I had another frozen Mikes. I figured I would just finish it up since it is pretty much the end of summer.

I am hoping to be AF for the rest of the week.

Good morning friends. Had 5 beers at poker last night. Been a while since I had that many. We are packing up and leaving for a camping trip at the lake! YAY!! That usually means beer and more beer. I won't be able to drink TOO much as we will be outside in the triple digit heat. I'm going to have fun. Our last big shebang of the summer.

Give yourself a big old healing hug! I know how that feels and trust me there were a few nights this week I would have loved to had a nice cold glass of wine, but went to bed instead such a party animal, lol. All I can say is push that water into you today even if you dont want it to get hydrated again and if you need that cheeseburger give yourself permission to have it and then jump right back to healthy eating. We are here for ya!!! emoticon

It is funny how my mind works. I plan my week on whether or not I am going to drink! So I drank on Monday because my husband wanted to. I drank on Wednesday because I wanted to, then last night we decided we better drink cause we are taking it easy Friday night because I have family coming in from out of town and we will be drinking on Saturday! It is a little ridiculous at times. Anyway I feel drained from drinking two nights in a row and all I wanna do is eat a big greasy hamburger and fries! Lord help me!
