Day 58..Sober but not Sexy

Now that I am not glugging wine multiple days out of the week I thought I would have dropped some weight.  NOT.  I really am a creature of habit.  I drank too much..habit and now I eat too much, specifically sweets and carbs…habit.  

I use to be fit and fabulous.  Now I’m fat and frumpy. This needs to change. I know it is going to take effort and constant vigilance. The same thing it takes to be sober.  Either way both bad habits involve indulging. Self control and discipline is what it will take.  I know I have it in me.  I have proven that the last 58 days.  So since counting/numbers seems to be a theme I’m going to try the 21 day fix. Wish me luck!!😜

Day 50..woo hoo!!

I honestly did not think I would make it to day 50. But I did and I am so proud of myself..(patting myself on the back).  The things that have helped me get to this milestone are,

-the wonderful support of my husband,

-my training wheels anatabuse,

-this blog that I re-read regularly to remind myself why I decided to take this journey,

-the stories and  support of the other bloggers

-my new love for pastries (hehe),

-and of course my Lord and Savior, Jesus  Christ

No wine tonight

So I have have been in a blah mood, craving the dreaded wine.  But instead I opted for these😜. I may have a sugar hangover tomorrow but at least is not a boozing one, btw I’m gross!!!😂😂

Day 43; The sun needs to @#%&*!! come out!!!

I think my wanting to cave in on this no-wine thing  and obsess about wanting to drink is because of the gloomy grey days that have been settling here day after day.  It’s cold, damp and blah.  And that is sooooooooo not good for me.  I am definitely one of those people affected by the weather.  Days like this zap the energy, enthusiasm and motivation right out of me.  Boredom sets in.  I can’t get my butt to the gym.  Sleep is my activity of choice.  And that is bad.  The combo of no wine and gloomy days…yeah 😖. So, I’m thinking energy drinks may need to be consumed. I was at a customers office yesterday and someone told me about these “fizz” drinks that provide a boost of energy.  They are actually called Zipfizz.  I have never been an energy drink “drinker”. But maybe it’s time.  Well at least for a time!   Never had Red Bull or Monster.  I would love to hear from y’all about your energy drink experience….the good, the bad, the ugly and of course your brand choice👍. Thanks!

Day 41 😳

I don’t feel it’s getting any easier. As a matter of fact,  I am thinking more about wine now. I miss it.  I’m planning a party and a cruise and I am having a hard time thinking I will not be able to have wine.  Ugh. Stressing out. Not good. Nothing helping. #craving #caving😩

No politics please

Alert..if your recovery blogs becomes a politic outlet you don’t belong here.  I can say and debate on a lot of the nonsense with facts.  But I am here for my recovery not rhetoric. Day 39😊🇺🇸

Day 35 & 36…Hard & Carbs

Ok the last two days have been so hard.  Hard to get out of bed, Hard to get anything done, Hard to work out, Hard to not want wine, Hard to be positive, Hard to have energy, Hard to eat right.  Ugh😩. So all I have mustered to do is eat all sorts of crappy CARBS…chips, pretzels, ice cream, pasta, pizza, crumpets, french fries and now I feel blah and meh😕. So why now??  Is it my body going through continued change since sans wine!!?? Is it because for an entire week  I worked out and ate right??God forbid my body said lol! And it’s not PMS lol!  Please God🙏🏻 help me tomorrow get my butt in gear, get energy, and abstain from wine and BAD CARBS😜😜. Any suggestions from my fellow sober(ish) bloggers would love to hear from you😊👍

Day 34 (810hrs)

Feels like 30 years without wine😩. Oh well,  I guess I better get used to it.  No hangovers, no regrets, no shame, no guilt, healthier liver, healthier life, etc. yeah I can get used to that😊

Day 26 Doing it!

Yep, I did it again and twice today. The gym!!🎉. I went this morning after kids went to school and then this evening with my son. He is 15 and took up to working out about 6 months ago. He is very disciplined. So finally because I don’t partake in the 5:00pm let’s open the 🍷 anymore I can partake in spending time with my son. Although he’s about the weights, me the fat burn cardio lol!  So happy not to be drinking. I have my moments for sure. But this is better 😊
