Wherein I eat the ice cream cake but abstain from the booze. And that is an accomplishment considering we threw our daughter her dream birthday party today: two crazy hours at a trampoline park with 20 kindergarteners and a handful of toddler siblings. It was incredibly stressful for me because the place was jam-packed with cabin-fevered kids of all ages literally bouncing off the walls and our assigned party organizers were, shall we say, organizationally challenged. I am still vibrating with the letdown of cortisol, or something – all I know is I can’t soothe my stress with my precious wine. But this is my CHOICE and I am proud of myself for sticking to it. I also plan to dig deep into the 45 weeklies I saved up before my first Dry January weigh in tomorrow. Whatever it takes to get this weekend in the rear view mirror! So ready to tackle week two!
