It wass rough.....


but I got through it! We are now on week 2 of the no wine challenge and I got through two events this weekend without having any wine. I know crazy right....unfuckenbelievable I never thought I could do it but I did it man.....I know that some peeps out there are saying what is the big friggin deal just don't have any wine it is possible. Possible ....yes do am I really into it not so much. Now remember I am not doing this challenge because I cannot handle wine that is not a problem...note I am Italian and wine is just part of our everyday culture I don't drink wine to get drunk I drink a little bit of wine to relax. I am doing this because when I even get a little bit of the sweet grape nectar in my system I want to smoke and that is the one bad habit I do not want to start up again. So I need to re program my body to not crave cigs when I have a glass of wine. Sorry folks I am a foodie and when I go out for pairings at high end restaurants I want the wine that is to be paired with the course not to go to waste.

Saturday we got through it OK even though I wanted a glass bad because my little one is not napping at all so I was little on edge ok allot on edge.  Have you noticed when other people around you are drinking and you are not how super ass annoying some people could be? It is like your watching a really bad movie and you want to go to them and just smack them accorss their face. It sucks period! Sunday was my nieces 1st birthday and since this particular number party is more about the adults than the litttle one there was sangria and of course tons of wine. Did not touch either yeah good times my ass.  The one place you need a glass of wine is around a bunch of screaming kids pumped full of sugar products.  GG has a blast and was in the snot filled bouncy hell house for most of the day. Making it waaaayyy easy for me to hide out in the house with my pops and drink some good old fashioned water...bleh.....

Got to say though I feel fantastic this am in the past if I did indulge on a Sunday even if it was only a couple of glasses I would feel like shit the next day. I am getting ready to head over to the gym to work off the two tacos from the taco stand my bro hired and the piece of really good bday cake I had!

Now I need to get through the 101 events I have scheduled in the next few months but I am a fighter I can do this. Kick ass!

Oh, I feel for you. I am trying to watch my calories and have not been allowing much wine consumption...not fun think I would rather give something else up as to have a small glass once in awhile! LOL
