Chinese New Year - off the wagon.
So yesterday I was invited to a Chinese New Year party at my favourite Chinese restaurant - 12 people there, food and wine free.
Well, almost all of the first courses were dumplings or had pastry - wheat! Pancakes with duck - I only had one of those.
Delicious food, way too much wine and today I don't feel great. But I don't feel as if one day off the wagon will harm me long term and I shall have a booze free week to make up for it.
Should I have been more strong willed and missed out any grain foods and not drunk wine??!!! Or enjoyed the meal - which I did - and put up with feeling lousy today?
I'd say the Chinese have been drinking 'jiu' and eating wheat products for the best part of 5000 years or so.
They seem to be thriving.
Free booze is allways worth feeling lousy for..
I live in Reno, do you want to meet up? If you are tracking your body weight, I would recommend taking a 10-day moving average and track that instead.
