Please sir, another carb? I'm 'ungry

Last Thursday I started a new lifestyle program (that's my fancy happy face word for diet) with Chris. So far it's been going pretty well.

I've worked out every day. And haven't touched a sip of alcohol. Y'all I went to dinner with my mom and turned down wine! TURNED DOWN WINE! Do you hear me? I could have ordered multiple martinis or delicious glasses of pinot. But I was strong! I made it!

Not boozing has been okay. It was a little weird this weekend though. What do people who don't drink do on the weekend? No, seriously. What is there to do on a Saturday night if I'm not going to a bar? Movies? Board games? Sleeping?

But here's the real problem. I'm craving carbs like crazy. I was ready to cut someone for french friends on Sunday.

This is what I want. I actually want 5 of them:

(This is the most delicious giant bowl of past I have ever eaten. That's fresh lemon linguini and ricotta fresh from the market. Ah, nothing beats Riomaggiore in Cinque Terre in Italy!)

If it stops raining today I'm going to for a run. I downloaded a Couch to 5k program on my ipod last night and am going to try to start running. I'm not someone who likes to run (actually I totally hate it), but I figured it was worth the $2.99 to download the app.

I'm trying for 30 days straight of working out. 7 days down! Only 23 more to go!

Good luck! I wanted to download a 5k training program to my ipod last year, but its the old school kind and the download was only for newer versions. Instead I took up weight loss yoga, which was pretty effective.

I'll go out on a limb here and say that everything is better in Cinque Terre.

You are a crazy, crazy girl! Best of luck with your lifestyle program. I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE YOU TURNED DOWN WINE!!!

Wow! Good work girl! I rarely have the will power to turn down wine at dinner, especially if other people are drinking it. ...Good luck with 30 days of working out!!

I honestly don't know how you gave up alcohol....and what to do on the weekend?! Man, when I'm bored during the weekend and there's nothing to do, the first thing I turn to is booze. I'm proud of you! Especially for passing up wine with your mom....I don't know if I could do that!
