I have a confession to make… I cheated.

I did. I know I said that I was going to avoid alcohol all month long but I didn’t, I cheated. Yes it is true, I am human. Shhhhh……….. don’t tell anyone.

I will make my excuses to try to justify going back on my word, but in reality that is exactly what they are… excuses. It all started last Sunday night when my husband and I went into the city. We were both there for work, I was staying all week, he was staying only one night but we were there, alone together with no children and we went to a great new restaurant for dinner. It was an occasion that called for wine so I had a glass. The next day – and every other day after save for Saturday and Sunday, I was having dinner alone after bracing the tremendous cold and working in an un-friendly environment and yes I had a glass with dinner those nights too. I knew I was being weak and I just didn’t care. The only positive thing is that it was just a glass with dinner, but still that is far more than my original ‘none’.

Phew – feels good to get that off my chest, I hate letting myself and more importantly others done. I hate not following through on a goal but obviously I didn’t hate it quite enough to avoid the grape completely I guess! Oh well, it has been done and now here we are, almost at the end of January. It has been a crazy-fast month, I can’t believe how fast it has flown by! We leave for our Hawaiian vacation in 10 days and the end of the month is just a few sleeps away – 4 to be exact. Will I make my goal? Honestly, I am not sure. That week away threw me for a loop. It was mentally exhausting and soooo hard to drag my ass down to the gym let alone eat regularly and I definitely dehydrated myself as going to the bathroom where I was, was an ordeal.

What I do know is this… My goal was 3% body fat and 6″ between January 1 and 31st and as of January 26th, I was down 2% body fat and 3″…. so will the next 3 days be my saving grace? I am not sure but I do know this… I WILL meet my 3% reduction goal bringing my body fat down to 20% before I leave on holidays next week. You can take that to the bank.  Will my total inch loss reach 6? Perhaps, but I am going to keep going for a 4% and 8″ loss by the end of February – a spa day with some great girlfriends and clients is riding on it, so wine be damned it is time to FOCUS!
