I thought my life was going to come to a screeching halt the other night when I was told, by someone who is not even 21 or in college for that matter, if I wanted abs I needed to stop drinking that perfect, crisp & refreshing glass of Riesling after work each night. That night, of course without thinking, I had THAT glass of wine. The next evening, I was given THAT same glass. This time something didn’t feel quite right about it. I took one sip and realized I didn’t even want it. It didn’t have that refreshing taste like always. It didn’t give me that feeling of ease. It did absolutely nothing except make me feel terrible. In the back of my head all I could think was, “well here is one more day of not getting abs!”.
Such a personal story to be told but let’s be real here, wine is just SO good but a pair of abs is even better. At least that is what I am telling myself at this point in my life. As in, that is how I am feeling this week. It might be a bit embarrassing to tell you that it has (only) been five whole days without wine and quite frankly, I am rather proud. (The six bottles of wine that I bought last week will just have to sit on the shelf for a while and look pretty I suppose)
I’ve always been a rather big fan of drinking your nutrients. Much, much more lately. Defense Up! Literally, I get the biggest bursts of energy after drinking my daily juice. Try. It. Out.
Having two days off in a row, major bonus, I’ve been spending time with me Mum shopping, drinking smoothies, discussing how to get that perfect eyebrow & catching up on the latest reality scandals. Day trips with my sis have resulted in chilly adventures to the beach to see the ice shelves, lunch in a Mediterranean café, frozen yogurt for the first time in over a year, followed by an endless amount of laughs as she preceded to take far too long to think about which direction she would be turning when driving…”what’s happening?!”
Now, I am going to carry on with my night, sipping on sparkling water while watching romance movies, searching the latest food and fashion trends on Instagram and ending it all with some boy band videos on YouTube…I couldn’t make this stuff up even if I wanted to.
