Water Not Wine

Monday, March 15, 2010

I just can't seem to have only one glass, over the course of an evening I usually drink the whole bottle. Everytime I do that I see the numbers go up on the scale a few days later. I just can't help it though! I love a nice Merlot while I'm cooking dinner and winding down my day. I do it about once a week with not so great weight results later. I have even tried amping up my workouts before and after. I guess I just have to decide what I like better losing a pound or drinking a bottle of wine!

    I've been able to do 2-4 oz. of wine with dinner (I cap it with a special rubber stopper and suck out the air from the bottle so it doesn't go off), and then once a week, splurge and have maybe 8 oz. or a cocktail. I love wine!

    I am too frugal to let a bottle go to waste, so if it's open, it's consumed... if I am alone, it seems to be consumed by me.

    I found some drinkable boxed wines that I can now pull a glass from and put back in the cupboard for another day.

    Who says you have to have quality over quantity.. .or something.

    I'm in the same boat. I absolutely LOVE my wine, but it really doesn't go with the goals I have to become a leaner and healthier person. I've cut back to 1 - 2 glasses one day a week -- and I pick that day, very wisely!

    From one wine lover to another, its a tough choice. The challenge would be to get it down to one glass with dinner and one to cook with, and leave the rest for tomorrow! If your tendency is to drink the entire bottle during the course of the evening then the water weight is going to be an issue I don't think you can avoid emoticon

    Tough choices...

    The same thing happens to me. Can't a girl unwind a little?!?! I've cut it down to a half a bottle 2x per week. Results are not as noticable.
