Feeling ridiculously positive about 2006 - this year is the year I beat the evil God procrastination and get on with things!
Day one of the drying out yesterday: first challenge, an afternoon at my Dad's, offered wine the minute I walked through the door (it comes out of the tap there) and just simply said "no, I'm on the waggon until Feb 1st." Not too hard!
Feeling worried that I've put on loads of weight over Christmas- I've tracked everything I've eaten and drunk as honestly as possible, and it's a bit scary. Mind you, there's not that much chocolate, only one mince pie, no Christmas pud or cake, so I bet it's not as bad as other people. I had to face the fact that if it weren't for the wine, I would have probably done okay - does that make me an alcoholic? Hopefully that does mean that any gain I've made should be off quite quickly with a month on the dry. At least I had lost that weight before Christmas. Even if I have put all of that back on I'm back where I started and not 10 lbs heavier than that (oooh, get me, I'm Pollyanna)
Back to work tomorrow and the positive attitude will have to keep on there as well - I can't let others get me down, I was really guilty of that towards the end of last year, and that's no way to be. I have found that I have felt a lot better being honest and open about things, and that will need to continue. At the end of the day, I think it is appreciated if someone is up front and truthful rather than devious and bitchy.
