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.
