Let the music move your feet

Have not been drinking. Or mostly not drinking. It's not abstinence, it's the conscious decision to have something else. Tea works, tea works very well.

And the sleep is better. It's even better when we both don't drink.

I've said this before, but it bears repeating, I'm not talking about drinking. I'm talking about any drinking at all. One beer, or one cocktail. It makes a difference. The closer to bedtime, the worse I can't sleep, and when I do I wake, and I wake, and then I wake.

Not so the past week.

There's also the calories. Trying to exhibit some kind of self-control. Yes.

Distance: 3.6 miles
Avg. Pace: 7:48
Duration: 28:10
Route: Forest Hill Loop

Tonight, however, I am alone. The boy at band practice, the girls shopping and working. I will make dinner, and enjoy one beer, and take a run.

Today is Prince Tribute Day in Minnesota.  Local Current is playing his catalog from A to Z.

Damn. The Artist makes daddy run fast.

Temperature: 52°
Climate: perfect. cool and clear.
Weight: 168.5 lbs. (-1.0)
Goal: 165 lbs.

So far, so good.

I haven't been drinking either. Usually my husband and I would have a glass of white wine before dinner and a glass of red with dinner, but he works every night except Sunday, so I don't bother to open a bottle of anything. I miss the taste and the company, but most of all I don't like that I'm trying to replace those calories with dessert. It has become a sad habit.

Makes sense I lose one pound and crack a beer. Sigh.
