I got through Friday night with no wine. If Shawn had brought a bottle home, there is NO WAY I would have had the willpower to say no. But, he had agreed not to and followed through so I was so thankful. It was a rough night with the cravings for wine and junk food. But I made it through and was so proud of myself.
Saturday was so productive with the kids. What a difference no wine hangover makes. We took the kids to the museum in the morning and a walk in the woods in the afternoon. Shawn played games with them throughout the day and evening. I commented to him, “What wonderful parents we are when we don’t drink and stay up late.”
Last night we had a beautiful vegan pizza – the leftover lentil tomato sauce for the night before’s past, on a pre-made Costco thin crust, then topped with:
spinach leaves, onions, red bell pepper, zucchini, tomatoes, and drizzled with lots of cashew sauce(raw cashews, orange juice, garlic, salt, ginger whipped in Blendtech). I made it in ten minutes. Simple and delicious.
Behind me this morning, Shawn is playing hide and seek with the kids. We will take them all for a walk in the woods this afternoon.
So, I will continue to focus on the positive stuff that a healthy lifestyle brings, not what I am missing out on.
