Coming in to the weekend, I was like... "I got this, it won't be too difficult... I'll just fill up on delicious drinks sans alcohol"...
... which I did.
I even re-discovered how delicious fruit juice is, especially when mixed with Sprite or Ginger Ale... I've had about 12 of them since Friday.
So yes, I survived the weekend.
It was anything but easy.
My "I got this" optimism was premature, because while Friday night dinner with friends was a success (thank you fruit juice and virgin, extra-spicy caesars), the rest of the weekend wasn't as easy. The cravings were there, but food, fruit juice and cappuccinos did the trick. Also, keeping busy by kicking my husband's ass at darts (for once) kept my mind occupied and the cravings at bay. (Things that also helped occupy my time? Writing this post while choking down water, finishing up some personal projects, actually doing the dishes instead of "leaving them for later", and sleeping in.)
It's only been a week though, and I imagine it getting harder. I'll keep you posted... but only because this might help keep me accountable.
