February 14th. It’s a momentous day. I think we all know what I’m talking about…
No, no. Not V-Day. I’m not really fussed about Valentines. I know my husband definitely isn’t! More importantly, today marks the halfway mark of my “no chocolate or alcohol for the entire month of February“. Oh yeah!
I’ve been doing pretty good. I haven’t wanted alcohol at all, so that’s awesome. Occasionally I’ve thought about chocolate, but I’ve been able to quickly dismiss the idea. I actually had a near-miss on Tuesday when I got super-hungry at work and grabbed one of those protein ball thingos from the reception desk. I automatically picked up the cacao-mint one – but don’t worry, I quickly swapped it for the macadamia variety! (Note to self – must eat decent protein at lunch – vegie soup just doesn’t cut it for me.)
So yeah, I’ve been doing well – until today that is. And, no, it’s not just because its Valentines Day and there is chocolate literally everywhere. It’s because the girls were driving me B.O.N.K.E.R.S(!!) today. Gah! My one (in one week) year old is teething – again. She had about three days of relief after the last lot came in, poor poppet. And my three year old has just gone completely cabin fever on me – being stuck inside on an unseasonably wet day is not her scene. So yeah, if there was any chocolate in the house today I would have SMASHED it. But there wasn’t, so I didn’t.
Luckily for me, hubby came home early today – without any Valentines flowers (or chocolate – phew!). So I left him in charge of the girls and took myself out on a V-day date for a solo coffee.
Yes, I’m not crazy enough to give up chocolate, alcohol AND coffee all in one month. A girl has her limits!
Until next time – Be Well! Sx
