First of all, I must apologize. It has been forever since I have written. I promise, I will be getting back to it. Life has been very, very busy for me lately-I am writing plenty for work and school, and this blog has not taken priority. I have missed being here. Plus, I realized many months ago I no longer wish to save the world. Nope. Not a job for me nor one I want. That is a job only God can handle. Of course, I still love Shakeology and drink it every day (I encourage everyone to use it too!), but I’m done preaching about it. Everyone is free to make their own healthy choices for their lives, however I am still going to share all about mine with you here.
Anyway, I’m back. Yesterday I realized that wine goes with everything. Really, it does. I am kind of wine grieving this week. If you love wine like I
consume it all the time do, then you KNOW it goes PERFECTLY with EVERY single meal, a good book or movie, fireplaces, homework, holidays, family & friend gatherings, chocolate and cheese, every possible food combination, etc. It is beautiful in a glass, smells and swirls divinely, and tastes better than anything grapes. I was also realizing (once again) how much wine has become an idol in my life. I am not an alcoholic, but I believe I have been a wine-o-holic for the past several years. I can stop. At any time. I do stop. But I sure miss it when I do. It’s just that once I pour one glass, I continue pouring. That is my problem. Remember my previous blog about my love for wine?

Well, per doctor’s order I am off wine for the next two months. Sucks to be me, right? Especially when wine goes with everything in my life. After these two months are up, may be I will continue going without? I can’t say right now. However, I do know that if I go back, it will only be occasionally, because my little body is not happy right now.
I am feeling good, day three without wine. I have more energy, am sleeping sound and have lost 2.5 pounds. Just in three days, 2.5 pounds! That speaks volumes and I feel safe to share about that here. I am choosing to listen to my doctor and to stay consistent for my tummy’s sake and health. But, trust me, I am missing
crying about wine right now. I have prayed that every place in my life that wine has filled would be replaced by the touch and presence of God.
Do you struggle with something such as this? I’m interested…
Have a lovely weekend,
