Tonight I'm making dinner for my boyfriend. We are going to have salsa turkey sloppy joes and drink wine, so I have to save up points for the wine.
I constantly have this inner debate about alcohol. I love drinking. I love it. Not to excess, but I love hanging around and having a couple of beers or glasses of wine. I just love it. But, I've read a lot of literature that says if you are serious about losing weight, you should not be drinking or you should be seriously limiting your intake. I have limited it some. Usually my flex points are saved for weekend drinking. Hopefully I am not using 35 points per week on booze though! Then I think, since this is an issue I feel strongly about, and maybe refuse to compromise on, maybe I am not that serious about losing weight. But then I think, everyone's lifestyle is different. Maybe if I were married and spent weekends at home with a family I wouldn't feel like I wanted to drink so much. Maybe if I didn't like going out and dancing every weekend - instead stay home and rent a movie or something, I wouldn't want to drink as much either. I don't know. Just rambling.
