Day 90 – Just call me Gloria Gaynor

“At first I was afraid, I was petrified” I survived!!! the night…. which is a relief as I’m officially on day 90. Last night my mum shared these gems with me over a 4 hour period: I shouldn’t eat so much pasta (after she dishes up a massive bowl of spag bol for me). It’sContinue reading “Day 90 – Just call me Gloria Gaynor”

Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation

Day 2 of isolation. I’ve eaten all the chocolate in the house. We have walked in the rain, I have crawled on my hands and knees pretending to be a dog and chasing BB. I have cleaned out our bathroom cupboard and found loads of hotel bath bottles so I can have a spa night.Continue reading “Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation”

Day 57 – Time

I’m finding time strange at the moment. Days seem to be whizzing by at a fast rate, BB is developing more and more and will soon be walking. I’m nearly at 60 days sober. On 21st September I’ll have been married a whole year. At the same time cravings seem to last forever, interviewing anContinue reading “Day 57 – Time”

Day 50 – The half way point

Day 50, wow. I’m as surprised as you are that I’m here. I thought I’d be able to wax lyrical about my beautiful dewy toxin free skin, however, unfortunately my body has regressed into a teenagers and I’m covered in horrible spots. I thought I’d be able to smugly announce my weight loss, however, I’mContinue reading “Day 50 – The half way point”

Day 46 – Cravings

I’m getting more and more nervous about this heart procedure. I notice the more nervous I get, the more I have to fight the overwhelming urge to stick something in my mouth. I’m craving alcohol, sugar (namely chocolate) and dairy (chocolate, cheese and pizza). I keep telling myself if I still want it tomorrow, IContinue reading “Day 46 – Cravings”

Day 45 – my achy, breaky, heart

When my alarm went off at 5:15am I wanted to hit it so hard. The wind was still howling outside as I threw on my swimsuit and snuggly clothes and headed out to the car. The drive took 10 minutes so I awkwardly hung out in the car park until others arrived and congregated aroundContinue reading “Day 45 – my achy, breaky, heart”

Day 27 – Step Mum guilt and blended families

I’m sorry blog but I need to vent. Anyone who is part of a blended family knows how hard it is to make it work for all involved. My husband constantly feels at loss when his eldest child is with her mother, and then showers her with attention to the point of almost ignoring BBContinue reading “Day 27 – Step Mum guilt and blended families”

Day 18 – Nourish

So I’ve finally graduated from Jason Vale and now reading Catherine Greys book called the unexpected joy of being sober. I’m only a little way in but so far enjoying the different writing style. One comment from the book has stopped me in my tracks this afternoon “The thing that you think is your crutchContinue reading “Day 18 – Nourish”
