Dang it. Just when I was entering my 2nd day of not drinking alcohol, my husband came home with a case of Mirror Pond Black Butte Porter.
I've been preparing for this clever diet trick for two days. I can always drop a few pounds if I stop drinking. Easy. Right?
I drank through the rest of the wine two days ago, and knew he drank the last beer yesterday. I went to Trader Joe's and bought salad and stuff. I have been eating plain yogurt recently, and thinking about chicken breasts.
I was prepared, mentally, to lose 3 pounds this week by cutting out the beer and wine. If you've tasted a good Porter on a hot day, you'll understand my dilemma here.
So, what should I do? Hide it? Ask him to hide it? Go on vacation for a week, away from the house?
