I poured out most of a bottle of wine last night. The reason? So I wouldn't drink it. I have decided to give up alcohol completely. I see nothing wrong with having a glass of wine in the evening, however, my compulsive/addictive/obsessive/whatever personality changes that to a bottle of wine in the evening pretty easily. Sometimes I stick to a glass but I am not above finishing off the bottle. I then end up eating things that don't help the cause but hinder it. It isn't worth it.
Today my cousin is coming over from Indianapolis to Richmond to do some Christmas shopping. We always look forward to spending the day going from shop to shop, buying gifts, and helping to set the economy aright. We will have lunch somewhere and our mothers, who are sisters, will have the day to visit. They are both in their 80's and it's getting more difficult for them to join us for lunch with walkers and canes and unsteady feet. There were 6 sisters and 3 of them are gone now.
I have been working extra and missing my morning aerobics class. I went to body sculpt class last night. I am missing aerobics this morning due to the shopping and will miss it Friday due to running the route. I will get to body sculpt again tomorrow evening. We just do the best we can at this time of year don't we? Like pouring mostly full bottles of wine down the sink.
I do things like that when I get to the enough is enough point. I have blogged before about the year at Christmas before I retired students had given me fudge, cookies, candies, chocolate covered cherries, and so much more. On the way home from school that evening I stopped on main street in Centerville and threw all of it in a trash can. Didn't even take it home.
How about you? Do you do things like this?
Be careful out there today.
