faltering on the path to self-destruction…

After our transfer was cancelled I was feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly I felt very, very angry and very, very defeated.  So, after months of being good (eating less sugar, drinking lots of water, taking all the supplements from my acupuncturist, drinking almost no alcohol), I decided all bets were off until the end of the year.  In fact, the words that I actually thought were “Fuck it!”.  I thought those words a lot.  After all, there was only a week and a half left in 2009 to let my hair down, eat and drink what I wanted and just generally indulge in some good old-fashioned self-pity and self-destruction.  How much damage could it do?  I figured, worst case, I’d gain a couple of kilos and maybe get my first hangover…

Then Sunday I woke up with a bit of a sore throat and a headache.  It seemed to improve as the day went on, but didn’t really go away.  Then yesterday, there it was again, and a little worse this time.  Want to guess what today was like?

So, as of yesterday, I’m back on the acupuncture supplements (first and foremost the vitamin C!!) and drinking lots of water.  I’ve got an almost full box of Lindt chocolates (my absolute favourite) sitting in the fridge and I’ve only had 2 of them!  And in my week of indulgence to date, I’ve had 6 cans of pre-mixed rum and coke and 1 bottle of sparkling wine.  That used to be a regular night out when we were younger.  What the hell happened?

Anyway, I’m back on the straight and narrow, and hoping the sinus headache and sore throat disappear soon so we can started on 2010 with a clean slate!
