Ahhhhhhhh... I'm back on the downward slope again. Whew! I lost about a third of my total summer-long gradual gain this week so I should be in virgin territory not too far in the future. This time, though, I have no goal date set so I can be a LITTLE easier on myself. This week I had a couple of glasses of wine on Wednesday night when I went to a show and I still managed to lose by (a) getting back to my serious exercise, and (b) being mindful the rest of the time.

Wednesday night was a show by Dave Stewart and his Rock Fabulous Orchestra. I loved it. Particularly liked hearing his story about writing "Here Comes The Rain Again" during a huge fight with his then-partner/lover, Annie Lennox. I listened to that song in a whole other way and think I now have a new theme song for fights. ;-)

That night we also met a woman who was Miles Davis' first wife -- she is now the maitre d'iva (her term) at a restaurant in L.A. and she is a total hoot. Only in L.A...

DB will be home tomorrow. I think this will have been the longest we have been apart (10 days) and these last few are TOUGH. I really miss him! But I have a friend coming over tonight for dinner and to watch the debate.

Onward and downward!

Ahhhhhhhhh is a great way to put it. It is a relief to get back in the healthy routine and lose the extra stuff. I think a night out and a couple glasses of wine is healthy. It's good to be able to enjoy yourself. Glad you are doing so good and having fun, too!

I really liked your post on the Addict's Mind. I just hadn't been able to articulate what I liked about it.

I'm sort of glad you didn't have a goal date set. You're in the right place, the right lane, and you'll get to where you want to be.

What a fun couple of days you've had with the Dave Stewart show and meeting Miles Davis' first wife (and I bet she was glad to get away from him).

By now DB will be home and I know you will feel more settled and definitely happier.
