I spent the weekend consumed with friends....but did not take the time to log on to TOOLS. I hav this friend that had never celebrted her birthday because of her religious beliefs. She turned 36 over the weekend and 3 of us got together and made her have a wonderful birthday weekend. She loved it and it was nice to see her so happy. I danced the night away on Saturday but drank a bit too much. I will have to check that next time I go out and promised myself to be in check and use TOOLS next time I go out. I regret having the drinks and was sorry the next day....I spent the weekend drinking lots of water so it would flush the alcohol out of my system. I weigh in today....and had this fear over the weekend of showing a gain....but today's lesson is fear. I will stand there and take the consequances of my own behavior. I will take responsibility for my own mistake if I show a gain due to the alcohol. I was doing good and I will not let one lousy mistake ruin my progress. I did great the rest of the weekend....and while all the others drank beer I stayed with water! I did not eat any junk or let them influence my eating right. I got up to exercise today.
