alissaks Posted September 28, 2014 Share Posted September 28, 2014 I'm on day 14 (WOOHOO) and I find staying on track relatively easy during the week but once the weekend comes, bam, it is tough. My partner and I LOVE beer (and wine) and yesterday was college football Saturday. We were driving around noon and he jokingly said, want to stop for beer and wings, as we neared a restaurant we would often go to. He is currently on a 45 day paleo challenge, so he was just kidding but just like that, beer was in my head. Later on, with no set plan for meal 3, I asked what we should do for dinner and he said, a meat lovers pizza and pitcher of beer? Damn, he's killing me with these suggestions. We are big craft beer drinkers and even have hops growing in our back yard from when he brewed and I find the social aspect a hard piece of this process. When it's just the two of us, it's okay but we talked about going to a Boston Bruin's game in two Saturdays and since I will still be on the Whole30, I just don't want to go, so he will go with friends. He is incredibly supportive and proud of me, thank goodness but it really has me thinking a lot about what people do when they don't go out for cocktails. That is what I do with my girlfriends or with other couples. I do think it's easier to be at people's houses and not drink, than it is to go to a bar. What's the point of going to a bar and drinking 4 club sodas. Geez, not sure if this is the right place for this post, perhaps it's AA!!!! But yesterday was my toughest day yet, with dealing with food/drink and the activities that we are used to. Anyone else experience football partying withdrawal?
