This will be quick, but I did promise daily updates. Day 3 didn't suck as much as day 2. I call that progress!
It was a crazy, busy work day which kept me in front of my computer and on the phone pretty straight from 8am to 6pm. The good thing about working hard is that I didn't have time to obsess about the food during the day.
The bad thing about such a day is that I really, really, really wanted a glass of wine when I finally came up for air.
I realise it's just a ritual. Come home (or in this case upstairs, since I worked in my basement home office today), pour a glass, chat with hubby about the day, decompress. Before too long it's time to get busy again with all the tasks and responsibilities of home.
Yet, that little "drink break" is like the pit stop that stock cars make during long races. Even though it's a quick break, the glass of wine makes me feel like I've got me some shiny new tires and a full tank o' gasoline.
I settled for my seltzer with pure, unsweetened pomegranate juice. The juice is expensive (though not compared to wine) so it feels like a treat.
No, it's not the same. Yes, I'll survive.
Next stop.... Day 4!
