The First Real Dry February Temptations–Avoided!

Well, so far this had been going swimmingly–I had a better handle on my diet, I wasn’t craving anything verboten, and my skin even looked better! Alas, at dinner on Saturday night (at a bar/pub/grill type of place), I was sorely tempted to add a beer to my order of a vegetarian Cobb salad. I didn’t, but I really did want to have that beer. How odd, since I’m not really a beer drinker, preferring cocktails and highballs to all things ale. And today I’m feeling a bit anxious and a glass of sparkling wine would be just the ticket. But again, I said “no”.

I DID treat myself to some exotics today–a Hawaiian papaya and a Chinese white pear. Honestly, I’d never even heard of a white pear. But they exist and I am now the proud owner. I haven’t eaten it yet, because I do need to admire it for a few days first!
