I was too chicken to get on the scale this morning.
I went to a wine and cheese social last night. It was ok. It was a business event and since I'm still new to this town, I don't know many folks in my business. I'm working on it, though. Well, as the event title suggested, there was plenty of wine and cheese. The wine was mediocre, but the cheese was fantastic. I probably ate $20 worth of cheese last night. That and the one glass of wine makes up for my $25 event ticket.
I caught myself on my second plate realizing that I shouldn't be consuming this much cheese. It's hard to turn down big chunks of Gruyère, though. That stuff's my fave. That and Rembrandt aged Gouda (not smoked Gouda but, boy, smoked g is great in grits). Yummmm. I could make myself sick on the stuff. I have before. I'm not proud of that. I did go back and get some carrots to make me feel a little more healthy.
So today I started thinking about a goal. I said in the beginning there would be no goal-setting, but damnit, I guess I need to. I don't think blogging all the time is a good enough goal. This blogging almost every day is really easy because I enjoy it. It's not work and, for the most part, is pretty much effortless. Shouldn't a goal require some effort to complete? Well, What do I need to accomplish? That list is too long to put here so I'll bring out the one I'm thinking about at the moment. No, not eat less cheese (although, I am trying), but drink more water. That's right. Water is my goal.
I don't actually do a lot of liquid intake during the day with the exception of the occasional Mr. Pibb (which I haven't had since this past weekend) and coffee. So, I need to drink more water. So far I've only been able to get one or two glasses in a day. I need to be drinking like 10. So...this is my goal. DRINK WATER. At least 60 ounces a day. I am still going to have coffee, but for every one cup of coffee I have I'm going to have 2 glasses of water that don't count toward my goal.
I hate what this means for my bladder.
