I have not tried to fit my engagement ring on my finger yet. I think that is something I am going to do at the end of the month, at the conclusion of Dry January.
Did I mention I was doing Dry January? My husband and I decided it would not be a bad idea after December, which was a rather bloated, indulgent month. Never drinking to the point of getting proper hangovers, but we are talking a cocktail or two every evening. In our late 30s, the effects just hit harder.
I thought it would be like doing Whole30 again, which to be honest, is a struggle during the winter. However, I have not thought about alcohol since the clock struck 2022 and I have not even craved it so far. It is my hypothesis that the Pamper Pirate keeps us so busy that we don’t notice that we are missing out on anything.
I feel better and just, I don’t know, clearer? If my ring starts to fit again, I think that will be all the motivation I need for Dry February.
I went to the embassy gym twice this week and stayed home and used weights twice this week. I love having the Pamper Pirate cheering me on during the latter; our nugget has recently learned how to high five and that is the best reward after finishing sets.
Let’s meet back here next week, same time same place, for a check in?
