{Meal Plan} Pinning & Planning Our Dinner Menu: Week of January 29

Does anyone else feel like January moved in slow motion?

With attempting #DryJanuary and giving up drinking, it felt like time stood still. I suppose that’s what happens when you are acutely aware of everything around you and you are not letting the good times roll by chilling with a few cocktails. Time drags on instead of slipping away while in a drunken stupor.

But how do I feel?

Absolutely not one bit fucking different. And it is quite disappointing.

#DryJanuary Run DMT Funny - Not Skiny Too Sober

While I am sure my liver enzymes have improved, I don’t feel any physical change. I’m not sleeping any better and despite not having a drop of alcohol, I still feel sluggish and tired.

I haven’t lost any weight although I have been consistently watching my portion sizes and journaling everything I eat. I’ve also been drinking lots of water and substituting my evening glass of wine with chamomile tea.

I thought my head would be clearer but instead it is clear I am desperate for a glass of wine. I could seriously kill for a glass of cabernet.

*sigh*

In other news, I attended the Women’s March on Washington (more about that experience later) and came home with the flu. And from my previous episodes of the flu, we know how that goes. I never lose weight. Yay.

Sorry if I sound cranky or bit like Debbie Downer, but I’m still not feeling well due to the flu. I have been laid up for five days; I’m constantly nauseous and I have severe cabin fever. I’m hoping for things to be back to normal tomorrow starting with eating something other than toast and broth.

And if you’re curious, yes, I plan to still abstain from any alcohol beverages just because I can. One alcohol-free day at a time.
