Failing to catch the wagon

I'm cross with myself. Today should have been a really good day, starting with the gym and back to my usual food - and both of those have happened. But I picked up Tigsy's ashes from the vets, and was very uspet... Being upset I have had some cider and a couple of glasses of Pims (with full-fat tonic) at a neighbours. I am so annoyed that I can't seem to manage one day alcohol free at the moment.

I am going to be boring and post what-I-ate and confess to my boozy sins. Maybe that will get me back on track sooner. Tomorrow is yet another day.

Breakfast:
Total 0% with pumpkin seeds, goji berries, almonds, a brazil nut, ground flax and brewer's yeast; kiwi fruit

Snack: raw broccoli with 1 tsp apple and chilli jelly.

Lunch:
Spinach with mushrooms, brewer's yeast, eggwhites

Snack (1):
Cantaloupe, Grapenuts, Gojis
Snack (2):
Steamed asparagus, raw cauliflower with 1 tsp apple and chilli jelly.

Dinner
Steamed purple sprouting broccoli, quorn cooked with leeks, tomato and rosemary

That is so sad about picking up your baby's ashes. I know I would have reached for the wine, or gin, or whatever, under the same circumstances. I live in constant fear of the day when Philomena's health finally fails. She's on meds for kidney disease and thyroid disease now, and doing well, but she's 21 and I know she won't live forever. But I love her so!

Sounds like a very trying day.
You did fine.. I would have done the same.

Take care,

Give yourself a break. You had a difficult and stressful situation to deal with. Having a few drinks to cope with it all is certainly understandable.
Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Pimms and tonic?!? I can totally understand reaching for a nice bevvie in the circumstances, but surely the No 1 Cup (with real lemonade, not fizzy pop) is more ON, if maybe not CR?

Remember, a lot of CRONies do daily moderate alcohol (and not so moderate on occasion - on Easter I had three glasses of chardonnay, two glasses of prosecco, two glasses of port and a sherry). Don't be so hard on yourself.

I don't even particularly like Pimms anyway, no matter how perfectly prepared! :-)
