No, I would not like a straw with that bottle of wine

Thursday, March 28, 2013

It’s been one of those weeks. It happens. Work is stressful, my grandpa is ill and we don’t know what’s wrong, my parents and I are heading to my sister’s place for Easter (I love them but somehow getting us all together is always stressful), and “so, there’s this guy…” You know, just one of those weeks. Turning into one of those months.

But it’s okay.

Monday, some girlfriends and I are starting a 21 day “sugar detox” to get us all back on track and ready for spring. We are going to be strong and support one another. We’re going say things like, no thanks, I’m full. I don't want to see the dessert menu. And NO, I would not like a straw with that bottle of wine.

But first, I’m going to survive the weekend. I’m going to accept that my family is crazy. I’m going to work out even though I’m travelling. And above all, I’m going to drink as much Diet Coke as I can on Sunday. I gave it up for Lent and I’m keeping it going for this 21 day challenge. Except for Sunday. So in that case -- yes, I would like a straw with that 2 liter bottle!!

    A sugar detox. Interesting. I only have the sugar that comes in prepared food. So, if I want to reduce sugar (I am not sure I need to), I would have to home cook everything. I wish you a wonderful weekend!

    Love it! I actually did have my wine with a straw once. At a food and wine pairing dinner, the hors d'oeruvres course came with a tiny bottle of champagne and a straw.
    Then we had the same champagne in a flute with dessert to compare what "presentation" does to a wine.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the heck out of your Diet Coke, and best wishes for your sugar detox. Been there, so I know it's not easy (or you'd have already done it, right?)
