30 Days Without Wine and Chocolate: Day 1*

February 18, 2014

It’s been a whole day without wine and chocolate. I feel ok but it’s winter outside and that makes me want to carb load. Yesterday was worse because I had to shovel 4 inches of wet snow (my neighbor was kind enough to do the front but I still had to do the back – I have awesome neighbors!) but it was the beginning of this 30 days without wine or chocolate so I was able to get through it easily.

I don’t have to shovel today but it’s still winter (which sucks the big one) and it’s dark outside and it seems like school has been out for three years.

(I’m sorry, this wasn’t supposed to be a complete bitch fest the first day)

I went through the house and threw away all the chocolate. We just had three birthdays and Valentine’s Day so there was a fair amount of chocolate in the house. I also threw away the leftover Halloween candy which I had stuffed into the china cabinet last November, though everyone had forgotten about it.

I’m not throwing away the wine. I’m committed but I’m not insane.

It’s only been one day but not having the wine made not having the chocolate (or any other carb) much easier.

29 days to go.

*I can’t tell you how long I struggled with that colon in the title. In fact I’m still sure I am using it incorrectly but I’m so crabby I don’t really care. If I’m using it wrong please correct me.

    I meant to comment on yesterday’s post. I wanted to congratulate you on your effort and wish you good luck (though I know it’s not about “luck”).

    The colon didn’t bother me in the least as I read the title, in fact, now thinking about it, I like it! I would have probably used a boring dash. My eye did catch on the asterisk for a moment, explained of course at the end of the post. Now you should keep the colon in future posts for consistency, IMO.

    Peace and love! 🙂

    […] With the longer days and warmer weather that perfectly balances between the too cold winter and too warm summer, springtime is the perfect time of year to finally make good on those New Year’s resolutions to get fit! The best thing about it is that you can do it cheaply, or even for free, as well. Joining a soccer, cricket or rugby team, a tennis club or even becoming a member at your local golf club and walking around the course while playing is a perfect way of getting fit and healthy. You can also go jogging, cycling or swimming for free, or next to nothing at least, as well. Spring truly is the best time of year to be out and about! Whatever you do, if you’re trying to be eat healthy, don’t eat too many cakes or chocolate! […]
