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 265 – 100 days to go

I realised today I have a 100 days until I reach a full year of sobriety. It’s weird as it doesn’t feel like a long time at all. But then the first 100 days felt like such a long hard slog. Today we have met my family in the park (to get it over withContinue reading “Day 265 – 100 days to go”

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 239 – Happy International Women’s day

Day 239 and I wanted to take a little moment to appreciate my beautiful baby (BB) on international womens day. She is my reason for getting sober and working on self improvement so she can grow up being proud of her strong mother. My friend who was furious I’d given up drinking is pregnant andContinue reading “Day 239 – Happy International Women’s day”

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”
