My name is Ashley and I drank too much wine!
Happy hour always seems to get the best of me, not sure why I haven't learned my lesson yet. Last night J and I decided to meet up after work to catch up and take advantage of happy hour. J is my girlfriend who was in the hospital for almost a full month in December and even though I visited almost every day we still haven't been able to just catch up since almost November! 3 glasses of wine (each), and a months worth of gossip later we decided we should probably call it a night. Not sure what it is about wine and girlfriends that is just the perfect combination no matter what day or time!
Now with that being said I have realized that I really need to cut down on my drinking. For the last month or two I have been drinking 3-4 nights a week. Most weeks will consist of at least one happy hour, a few dinners out, and two weekend nights (or days) with friends. For example this week will have one happy hour with J, a wine tasting with girlfriends on Friday, and a date night downtown with the BF. The habit hasn't been good on my waistline or my wallet! The drinking won't help with my running or diet which are two things I am working way too hard on to not see results. One day a week is going to be my new limit and it doesn't mean I can't go to the events I just need to order water instead of wine and really stick to my resolution of being commited to my goals.
