Day 291 – Catching up

It feels like it’s been an age since I’ve been on, yet at the same time life has passed by really fast. We’ve been doing our normal day to day stuff, national trusting, walks, slides, stories and I’m still loving it. I can’t believe in less than 16 weeks this precious time will be over.Continue reading “Day 291 – Catching up”

Day 275 – More navel gazing

These are 2 Facebook statuses from my account 7 years ago. The worst thing is, there were so many “hilarious” night outs and injuries, I cant even remember what night the status relates to. I wish I could tell 7 year ago self, that being sober is the best way I’d ever feel. That theseContinue reading “Day 275 – More navel gazing”

Day 264 – Last night

So after writing everything thing down yesterday I went and did some yoga. During a lying down bit at the end, I fully decided I would raise everything with my husband. I think part of my issue was I felt like I wasn’t living authentically as I was holding a lot in. I also feltContinue reading “Day 264 – Last night”

Day 252 – Saturday evening runs

This photo was taken at the end of my run last night. One of the best things about sobriety is the extra time you get. This month I’ve rediscovered my love for running. I used to always run and have done half marathons, 10kms etc. When I got pregnant, it was discovered I had anContinue reading “Day 252 – Saturday evening runs”

Day 243 – 8 months

So I got a month ahead of myself yesterday. Turns out I’m 8 months sober today not 9 months. I thought it had gone a little bit fast. Treated myself to some beauty pie perfume and a mascara because I’m worth it. I was surprised by my SD before school with a lovely mothers dayContinue reading “Day 243 – 8 months”

Day 242 – 5am wake ups

Today my little munchable BB woke us all up at 5am. The whole house. So my hubster and I tagged teamed getting the children up and had our showers. By this point it was 6am. Between 6am and 8am before my step daughter left for school, I’d made a pasta bake for BBs lunch andContinue reading “Day 242 – 5am wake ups”

Day 233 – Same but different

4 days after the cravings striked, they are slowly starting to dissipate and it’s such a relief. And whilst everything looks the same on my normal day to day mum life, it feels sort of different. I now know I’ve got the strength not to crumble and when there’s rough cravey times in my futureContinue reading “Day 233 – Same but different”

Day 230 – Cravings be craving

Woke up on day 230 still craving. It wasn’t an every minute thing, like it used to be at the start. But it was there, whispering away to me. I confessed to my long suffering husband. Who was brilliant. He got me outside for a big walk with BB. We all went to the ducksContinue reading “Day 230 – Cravings be craving”

Day 223 – A little bit

So I’ve decided to do a little bit of something each day to gain a sense of achievement in these groundhog day times. It could be house and garden related or myself, as long as I ticked a small task off each day. After deciding this, I suddenly felt full of energy and good intentions.Continue reading “Day 223 – A little bit”
