Learning to focus less on dieting and more on overall health and wellness

good times

Hi! Posting from Connecticut. We spent the day shopping (didn’t buy a thing) and drinking!  I stuck to Bloody Mary’s because they are Oh So Delicious. The bartender caught onto my olive addiction and ended up stuffing my olives with gorgonzola. He also told me I look like Sandra Bullock! Score. Not sure who had the beer goggles on but still… I’ll take it.



Love these olives!

We took a drunken trip to Target and I bought a pair of the cutest flats! I guess I did buy something! Oops. Then we hit up a local grocery store for yet another spread. There are five of us so we each contributed our own touches. Can’t wait.

I’m so happy to be with my girls and am loving life. I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. I’m talking, tears down my cheeks.  How cute is Dakota. She’s five but looks like a boxer puppy. So damn cute. We’ve been making out all day.

Pat on back

I thought for sure I’d see a weight loss this week but I stayed the same. There are several reasons I’m totally fine with this.

1. I got my period yesterday

2. I haven’t binged since Monday

3. I haven’t had a sweet treat since Monday

4. I started booty.

Overall, I’ve done a great job this week listening to my body’s needs and eating for fuel. I’ve never had two bags of chocolate (and mini eggs at that) sitting around my house without a binge happening. A true test. I can already feel a difference in my self-esteem, with or without weight loss.

I’m definitely a little worried about the next two days though. I have no clue what we’ll be doing, where we’ll be eating or what sweets will be lurking around the corner. Hopefully I’ll stay strong and make decisions that I’ll be happy about. It’s a fine line right now. If I cave and at shitty one day, it would definitely leak into the days to come.

Anyway, last night we made a wonderful spread of pepper jack cheese, light cheddar, Ritz crackers (for len), whole wheat crackers (for me), rustic bread,  two types of hummus, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cucumber, grapes, red wine (for me) and white wine (for Len).  Len hadn’t seen The Blind Side yet so we rented it. Such a great flick. If you haven’t yet seen it, I really encourage it. It will touch your heart, melt it, then make it happy.

God only knows...

I only had two glasses of wine but apparently Len took it to a different level. I had a feeling I’d be running alone when I noticed his empty bottle. Cheers!

What’s your favorite brand of cheap wine? Mine is Lindemans. It’s SOOOO good, though I can only speak for the Cab Sav and Merlot.

I’m off for the day and won’t be able to read about anyone’s lives till tomorrow night. I hope you have a fabulous weekend filled with fun and relaxation.
