#1. It’s a BOY!!! I now have a grandSON to add to the three little princesses running around dancing to Let It Go! Time for ninja turtles and trucks! My son won’t admit it but he’s thrilled, said now he’ll have someone to watch basketball with him.
#2. On January 28th, Olive the Puppy will be 8 months old and I will be 18 months sober. Fuck Yes!! I’ve felt pretty good lately, not really many cravings. I’ve had a short fuse with husband #1 however, I really wish he’d give up the wine. The beer I don’t mind cause I don’t like it,but white wine was my drink of choice. Olive, however, has come into her own and isn’t my perfect little puppy anymore so we’re starting a manners class on Saturday.
#3. Starting this Whole 30 nonsense tomorrow. Doing it with my daughter, she’s trying to lose some weight and has a hard time by herself. Going without sugar is really going to be hard for me. How the hell can I give up my trips to Starbucks for mochas and replace them with coffee with coconut milk? Yuck! But I’m gonna try.
Normally #1 and I go vegetarian for the month of January, this is the 4th year for that, but we’re stopping early. Good thing because I was getting really bored this year. And I spend so much time trying to find flavorful, different recipes it gets old fast. Now I can devote myself to more time sucking by finding different, flavorful recipes for Whole 30.
I’ve read online, (more time sucking) that you get N A S T Y after a few days without sugar. Should be interesting since I wear the crown of Queen Bitch now and going veggie doesn’t make me Miss Congeniality either. Hope I don’t kick the spouse (oh wait, maybe I do) so hope I don’t kick the dog or yell at the mail”person”. Though Ralph bit her several years ago so yelling shouldn’t phase her.
I have in my head that this Whole 30 thing will be like the first 30 days of not drinking and that just totally sucked the big one. (Just let out a major sigh).
So, I’m an addict, addicted to alcohol (formerly), addicted to Starbucks, addicted to sugar, a saltaholic. Have way too many pairs of Keen shoes and Bobbi Brown cosmetics. Oh and majorly hooked on J.D. Robb’s In Death series but only the audio versions, the narrator is outstanding. Should I go on…hell no! Seems I have a problem. Who knew?
So in preparation for tomorrow’s deprivation, (rhymed haha) I’ve had 4 oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and two venti mochas (no whip of course), 2 lemon scones for breakfast and two pieces of Texas toast for dinner. Sugar and starch hangover tomorrow and then withdrawal. Shit, why, why, why? Because I love my daughter and myself. I mean, what’s not to love??
I just read this before I pushed the publish button, I damn well didn’t fucking swear nearly enough. Must be the sugar!
