Happy Tuesday

Well, it was so hard to get back into the groove of work and all. Everyone kept asking me how the Bahamas was at Christmas time. My response - wonderful and I wish I was back there sitting on the beach, taking a nap and drinking that fruity drink with the umbrella in it. Oh well, back to reality.

So, how am I doing on my 'resolutions?' Actually quite well, thank you for asking! I did wake up at 5 AM to check my crackberry (oops, I mean blackberry) and found five messages. There really should be a law against people in other time zones sending an email BEFORE it is a working day time in the time zone you are sending the email. I actually drank water and did not die!! That is a shock. Do you know when the last time I drank water was? Well, it was exactly 3 months ago. Yep, three months of nothing but Diet Cokes and other things. Well, not today. I had 64 oz of water, Chicken Caesar Salad (with my own dressing) and then a Diet Coke! That would really put my body in shock if I didn't just have one.... yes, I only had one!

Dinner was really good and I actually LEFT the office at 5:30. That was such a great feeling. Don't really know how long that will last, but I will definitely take advantage of it while I can!! We cooked this evening.... 4 oz filet mignon (I was a vegetarian for a while and then added back red meat once a week and chicken at lunch), mashed potatoes from scratch and mushrooms! I love mushrooms. Of course, a great 1/2 a glass (4 oz. pour - I think :-)) of Pinot Noir.

For those that don't know (probably no one since I haven't told anyone about my blog!), I am a member of two wine clubs. My husband and I went to Napa and SF last December. While there, I joined the wine clubs I get wines/sparkling wines sent to me each month from Sterling Vineyards and Chandon. It is really great! It gives me a good excuse to cook new recipes and have friends over for dinner.

Well, I am off to be a 'good' wife and watch the FSU and Penn State football game. Of course, that is for 5 minutes until I get bored and read all of my latest 'gossip' magazines that came in the mail today!

Have a great evening!

Thanks for stopping by my log. I'm trying to lose a few pounds myself and am currently in my size 4s right now as well (at my skinniest I was a size 2). Good luck on your goal! I believe it's harder for folks like us to lose the last few pounds than it is for larger people to lose weight.

Do you mind if I put a link to your blog on my blog? I have links to fellow dieters' blogs on my blog. If you don't want the link, just let me know!

Thanks and, again, good luck!
