well done on the weight loss
Friday - a huge hurdle day for most of us I would think. In work for me, it's a mare of a day, I won't bore you with details, but I hit the ground running and don't come up for air as a general rule. I got in early today - before I knew it, it was 4PM and my mind started wandering to the lovely red wine I should be having with my evening meal . I didn't escape from work until nearly 6PM and needed to go to the supermarket on the way home. Oh the temptation - luckily I have a strong stubborn streak so avoided the booze aisle (Tesco are a bit cheeky though and tend to scatter bottles of booze through the store). I decided that a treat with chocolate would be the best option, so I have a nice box of Lindt chocs to have later .
I've also discovered chocolate infused philidelphia cheese - heavenly, really heavenly. The indulgence will slow the weight loss, but who cares, first working Friday of the year conquered
Well done Ye Old Dragon and all who are resiting this Friday night.
I've found it ok to be honest. I cooked a nice meal and had sparkling grape juice in a wine glass.
Snap DeliH - up early for a run for me!
well done on surviving a friday night
First socialof theyear successfully negotiated with a long fruit drink and water - it helped that I had already paid for the meal so was keen to keep cost down
Tongiht is my cycling clubs annual dinner - Ihad a pint last year as a celebration of winning a trophy - this year I haven't won anything so won't
Well done everyone. I went to a gig last night so succumbed to a beer but thats okay cos I've had my 4 nights off the booze this week. So good to drink without wondering if I shouldn't. I hope I can keep this up for the year. Moderation is king - its that or nothing and I don't want the nothing so thats my incentive.
Kev - yeh key, thats what I meant lol.
'long fun' eh - whats that when it at home
So it sounds like we're all doing brilliantly so far people. Im not long in from work and have to say the temptation to go out is strong just now. That's why l logged in here to see for myself that other people can manage it therefore so can l.
Absolutely knakcered in truth so a nap is coming up next.
Keep the faith (nearly said spirit haha) everyone. Come Wednesday next week we will all be more than half way though
well done Kev
When I've travelled on the wagon previously, I've been fascinated by the change in people as they drink alcohol. It's the physiological signs I notice first, slack jaw, dilated pupils, then it's the different way that people talk, not just the slurring, but the content of the speech changes. It's one way of amusing yourself while drinking the soft drinks and waiting to drive everyone home I suppose
I was feeling tired and achey and so wanted a drink this evening, but I went out for a *very* slow run (it's bliddy cold out there as well). I did feel better when I got in and the craving has gone
Erdinger for me tonight. Now supping a hot mug of Redbush tea. Not been tempted by real alcohol at all.
Good on you doing a run in the cold YOD. I will start watching people more I think - interesting observations there.
Well done SD.
Just about to go out for a run, that will be 4 in 6 days which is great for me.
