It's funny, that I could be such a fanatic about fitness- and still convince myself that a bottle or two of wine a day wouldn't hurt my fitness quest- duh! I work out at least an hour a day, often two, and adore weight-lifting and pilates. How could I possibly think that was compatible with so much alcohol. We can certainly delude ourselves- I certainly deluded myself. I am curious to see how my fitness progresses in the absence of alcohol.
I'm surprised- so far this isn't as hard as I expected- but I anticipate there will be hard days. The thing at present that throws me most off balance is habit- going to the grocery store, heading for the wine section, and thinking: Oh, no, I'm not doing that today. Going to a restaurant, about to order wine- oh, that's right, not today. Thinking about my evening, visualizing reading with a glass of wine, and remembering-nope, not today.
Now I've got the first week under my belt- let's see what my next week will be like. 100 days is a LOT of weeks- like, fifteen or so. Seems forever. Sigh. But I'm on it.
