DANGER,Will Robinson, DANGER!

Friday, January 15, 2010

I'm sure nobody remembers that line from Lost in Space, but I can't get it out of my head so that's the title of this blog.

I've done really well in January EXCEPT: on the two Fridays I've had my way with a bottle of wine. A big bottle. Something about that "Whew, I should celebrate because I made it through the week!" mentality.

That's got to stop. Today. Now.

I am blogging so I will be accountable to my Spark friends and will NOT stop for wine. It totally undoes a whole week of being on my plan because I am not able or willing to limit myself.

I'll let you know tomorrow how it went, but as of 6:19 a.m. I am totally committed to staying alcohol free.

    Is there a good substitute for wine to wind down the week? Would a soak in the hot tub do it? Can you get a Friday backrub or massage from your best friend (hubby)? How about if you pay him?

    Substitutes can lead to new discoveries.

    This is the first job I've had Mon-Fri; it is definitely a different mindset to have the same schedule week in and week out. Mon-Fri you tend to look forward to and celebrate that last day of work.

    Stay determined.

    And to think One time I wish I could have lived in space like them... minus Dr. Smith.

    I do not know what you think of wine in a four pack... but it would limit consumption. One four pack lasted me over a month.
    I allow myself a drink once a week. During winter my fav is a chocolate martini, summer is a cosmo.

    Just a suggestion...if your regular route home goes by your favorite package store, TAKE A DIFFERENT ROUTE HOME. I have noticed since we moved to a rural area with no fast food places around, it has greatly decreased my stopping for high cal meals!

    I have a miniature Lost in Space robot on my desk. He reminds me to stay out of my computer registry...which I totally trashed one time!
