I got home from work about a half hour ago and I think the couch is calling my name. Normally I'd do my workout directly when I get home, but today I have a headache that just won't quit. So I think my game plan is to take a mini-nap and then do my workout when I feel a bit better (I will feel better. Very soon. Eternal optimist here, folks!!!)
I wanted to get on and write a quick blog though since I have every Monday for the past nine weeks! Today marks nine weeks without any alcohol - and honestly, each week it gets a little bit easier.
I really don't miss it at all. I had a girls' night on Saturday and we saw Escape Plan (because three women can choose to see a Stallone & Schwarzenegger movie and that's perfectly okay - even if everyone's confused by it!!!). It was actually very good! Funny, intense, suspenseful and interesting - definitely glad to have seen it!
After the movie we went to the bar. I was originally planning on dropping them off and then heading home, but they convinced me to come in for just one Shirley Temple. One turned into two, and two turned into waters, and 10:15 pm turned into 2:30 am - but it was fun! I was there the whole night, not a drink of liquor and no real frustration with it, either. I met new people, had fun with my friends and braved the Minnesota cold on the way back home (please, summer, come back!!!)
On Sunday when I got on Facebook I read about other peoples' hangovers and I was SO glad I didn't have to deal with that! Plus, I don't think I would have made it until 230 had I just had one drink - I used to get so tired after one drink that I would have a second to wake me up, and then a third because the second tasted so good! (Probably not the best decision, but that's what I did!) It was great to hang out, have fun and not get tired or hungover - it's the best of both worlds!!!
