Overall, good day, though I have a feeling that weekends will be the most challenging while on this 30 day challenge.  I have to look at #sundayfunday in a different light, so much of my life revolves around food and alcohol, I mean seriously, we dine out 4-5 times per week, eat great food, drink wonderful wine all the time.  My sleeping tonic is always a glass of Jameson before bed.  The more I evaluate living without the things that ” I love ” so much, the more I see that I don’t necessarily need to have those things.  This doesn’t mean that I’m swearing off alcohol and carbs forever, but I know that I’m good saying on Day 5, that I can do another 25 days.

Game Of Thrones premiered tonight.  In our house, Sunday dinners are a ritual, well, we base our meal around The Game Of Thrones, usually that entails some form of red meat, vegetables and something hearty, like they would eat in all of the Seven Kingdoms.  So, either Maegen or Sean and I will spend some time in the kitchen preparing our feast.  I’d say this was the biggest challenge yet.  I love being in the kitchen on a Sunday afternoon, we’ll crack a bottle open and enjoy the whole cooking experience together, chatting the afternoon away while in preparation.  Today Sean opened a beer and I filled my water bottle, and we still chatted the afternoon away….. Habits are hard to break, but if I can make it through today, I can make it through all days ahead.  The more I say it, the more I write it, the more it will come true.. ha ha!
