There’s no way I’m going to be able to give up wine.

I can’t believe I actually posted that on my own blog. I must have been drinking when I wrote that.

I’ve only been sans wine for one day and I’m seriously contemplating a trip to Target – where I plan to wipe out an entire aisle of boxed wine – so I can bathe in it.

You can’t absorb calories via epidermis, can you? At the very least, the grapes must be good for your skin (or in this case, mental health).

Oh, and, forget about almost all of my ex-boyfriends – spin class is by far the stupidest thing I’ve ever done.

Spin class is for a-holes. Literally. I’m proud to announce that I AM NOT an a-hole. I know I’m not, because if I was, mine would not hurt the way it currently does. The extra padding didn’t even help. I hate spin class, the sick/fit neighbor and the sparkly spin instructor. My face was as red as my tank top for almost three hours after that stupid spin class. There must be a better way (better = easier). Those a-holes (hee hee) can sit and sprint while I bathe in Chardonnay.

I actually just got up, poured myself a glass of sav blanc, and cheersed it in your honor. I always think about giving up wine and then I think WHY? I like it, it likes me. No problems to be solved there. p.s. I’m even better at convincing the world that quitting your life to travel is a completely feasible and preferable option after a few glasses of wine…sooo, I’ll meet you in the Tar-jay wine aisle?

You’re quickly becoming the best and worst influence. Who knew Christine, who knew…

I read this post while at Old Soul, while drinking a glass of red wine and eating artichoke dip.

But, I’ll agree- spin classes are the hardest workouts I’ve ever done. Ever. That includes 300 pound Coach Chuck yelling at me during all of my high school volleyball workouts.

I’m pretty sure God gave you a metabolism Lesley. And that’s all I’m going to say about you (and God)…after what you said about red wine and artichoke dip.

If I can give up wine for 9 months (twice), you can do it for a few months! And spin class will get easier (promise). The best shape I’ve ever been in in my life was when I used to take spin (and lift weights) regularly. Just promise me that after I have this baby in August, you use one of your cheat days to hang out with me, drink wine, and have some yummy snacks. <3

First and foremost Dana, I don’t know how you did/do it. Giving up wine for one week just about killed me. Then my first cheat day (which I already had to have) just about killed me again (I may have overdone it). And…I have a cheat day saved for you post the birth of your baby boy. Don’t you worry about that.

From one wine snob to another… Just thought you might want to check this out 🙂

LOL! I knew wine was good for your skin! Mark my words…one day…I shall bathe in it.
