Committed to it

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Last week we went to the village festival which is celebrated every year around the 18th of July in my husband's mother's small village in the mountains. This celebration involves copious amounts of eating, drinking and dancing, and culminates with a parade around the 30-house town from house to house to have sangria and tapas or pinchos from around 1 to 8pm.

Once again, I have said, enough is enough. Partially due to the excesses of the fĂȘte, partially due to seeing myself in shorts, partially due to a potentially pregnancy. Whoops, that's right, too much booze, too much party and DH and I just might be expecting in April.

So while our normal diet is healthy (aka, high in fruit, veggies, whole grains, lean proteins, beans, nuts and olive oil) we have been overdoing it on the treats and the wine and beer since the start of summer vacay. I have not been exercising willpower to any great extent, and DH and DS (who is visiting this summer) will not do so on their own - much encouragement is needed.

So after the last day of drunken revelry, I'm back on the no alcohol bandwagon and back to no junk food and everything else in moderation. Back to exercising and back to being committed to myself and this healthy lifestyle.

    Wow, I must say, they do know how to throw a party in Spain!! Congratulations to you and the hubby on the upcoming addition to the family. That is a wonderful time to focus on being healthy and strong for your baby. Giving up the alcohol has been a struggle for me also. But I know you can do it!!
