It was awesome. So awesome, I don't plan to stop here :)
I just wanted to do the five days because eating/drinking was getting out of control and I needed to do something manageable and short-term to just remind myself that I LOVE this feeling!
At the train station last night, my friend had two drinks to celebrate getting wedding stuff done (her wedding is in less than a month)... and I just drank some honey green tea! I felt really proud. It would have been really easy to rationalize that I had been good for FOUR days, so what if I promised myself FIVE days, right? I'm glad I made the decision I did... it makes me feel strong today.
So tonight is part one of bachelorette festivities for my friend. I am going to go out to dinner and drinks with everyone (but am skipping the comedy show to save some money). I've been to the restaurant before and there are a lot of TERRIBLE food options, but also some really good ones. I'm driving, so I am limited to one drink. Tonight will not derail me.
Saturday is the real bachelorette party-party. I know I am going to have some drinks and stay up really late. I love these girls and am looking forward to it. Saturday, before the party, I will be eating tons of veggies and getting in a good workout to make sure I remember what is REALLY important to me. Then on Sunday, I will be getting up to walk the dog, do yoga and get right back on track with no drinking and clean eating!
This week felt great. I physically feel better than I have in months. Even though my weight is the same as last week, I love my body a little more - knowing it is full of good things and brimming with potential.
