This weekend we hosted a graduation party for our youngest. We got pizza from an amazing pizza shop but I made all other foods. Pasta salad, fruit salad, tossed salad, cheese/pepperoni tray, brownie/cookie tray…all for about 30 people. It was ALOT of work. Just the planing and grocery shopping for it all, the prep for it all, the set up for it all and hosting it all and finally the clean up of it all. I went to bed at 11pm last night so my 5am alarm came fast. I’m tired this morning but everyone had a great time!
The key thing is that I’m tired just from being tired. I used to drink while prepping for these things, sip on something during events like this and then half ass pick up after everyone left, barely making it to bed.
I did not drink while prepping or during. I did have a drink once everyone left as I cleaned up the kitchen. However, I had just that one drink I sipped on, got everything properly cleaned up/food put away, even cooked eggs for me and hubby for this morning. Even though I went to bed late and I am up early it is just due to pure exhaustion, not due to drinking all day. I am getting my work out in this morning which never would happen in past years. I am quite proud of myself and hubby even noticed. I received compliments on my hard work working out and I actually remember exactly what people said.
It just feels really good so thought I’d share. I did think about drinking when food prepping but told myself no, so there’s still that mindset pattern. I’m glad I could break that yesterday. 😃💪
Well I hope everyone has a great day! I’m off to get my workout done and start the day off right.
