Major goal for the week:
Only consume beer during planned social events already scheduled on Wednesday, Friday, and perhaps Saturday
It is a tiny bit sad that my major goal for the week is to not consume as much alcohol. The weird part is I am not usually an everyday drinker and save my alcohol consumption for social events. Since I’ve been more social as of late, I am almost craving beer and knowing I have a new yummy pumpkin beer sitting in the fridge only ups that desire. Last night Kenyon and I attended Red Green’s live tour called “I’m Not Old, I’m Ripe.” (It was pretty funny although not my cup ‘o tea). I was thinking before we met up to head to The Egyptian Theater, they might be serving beer. Then I quickly righted my thought process in reminding myself that I didn’t need a beer.
I got myself back on track yesterday and even declined a sugar treat at work. I also stayed within my Daily Points Allowance. Between those two items and skipping the beer…I feel really good today. I love the positive feeling of being successful. It is much easier to build on that vs. feeling like you are starting over each new day. This morning I wrote in my WW journal “feeling successful” right at the top. This way I can see it and continue to move forward and not backwards.
I know that getting back on track so close to my WI means I don’t have enough time to make much of an impact. I can’t change what happened last week, but I can work to take control of what happens this week. I am choosing to take control.
