Groundhog Day

Well today the dogs ate the remote, but don't worry...I didn't cry!

The offenders and the evidence

It was also crazy sock day at my favorite fitness class!

Crazy sock day
I'm in a really good mood.  I guess it's a pink cloud day.  I am feeling better and the sun is out.  Also the scale seems to finally be moving in the right direction. It's moving slowly, but I'll take it.  Getting on the scale in the morning can affect my mood for the entire day!

Groundhog day has me thinking of how in the end my drinking pattern had become like a bad version of the movie.  It went something like this:

  • Think longingly about how lovely a glass of wine would be
  • Convince myself I'd only have one glass (maybe two)
  • Drink the whole bottle (sometimes more)
  • Wake up at 3 am, unable to sleep
  • Try unsuccessfully to understand why I'd had too much once again
  • Feel terrible the next day, mentally and physically
  • Repeat (not everyday but all to often)
I'm really glad NOT to be doing that anymore!


  1. I LOVE seeing the dogs who ate the blanket and remote and other things! LOL
    Poor babies. They must have a tummy ache!
    I sure know the groundhog day feeling. Yuck! No more!
    So happy you had a pink cloud day!
    I love days like that!
    Peace and Hugs!

  2. That whole lather rinse repeat cycle is just awful, isn't it. So glad to be out of it!

    Your pups are adorable!



  3. Your drinking day and mine are identical! My scale has stopped moving and I'm so over it. I still can't believe I haven't lost weight purely from giving up wine. It seems so unfair. Sorry about your remote and blanket too!

    1. I agree. I keep thinking someone will look at me and tell me how wonderful I look or that I'm glowing or something...but I look exactly the SAME!!

  4. omg, I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO know that groundhog feeling. just one glass, yeah right!! never happened. I am so glad to be out of that torture. the bathroom scales are another one of those tortures. I am posting on this tomorrow, as I have just read an amazing article.

  5. But those puppies looks soooo innocent ;) My drinking pattern was like yours, happy to be out of that awful spiral! Lori K

    1. They keep me on my toes for sure, both under 2 yrs old!
