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 263 – Still Standing

I’m still standing (just). After vowing to never eat another bite of chocolate on saturday night, I’ve had some every day. Some days I’ve binged. Some days I’ve had just a little. I’ve decided to park it for now and enjoy Easter. I’ll let future me deal with this. It’s been warm and sunny hereContinue reading “Day 263 – Still Standing”

Day 258 – Excess

I seem to do everything in life to excess. Drinking, eating, exercising, skin care, I’m either all in or completely out. It’s around 3am in the morning here in England and I’ve just been horrifically sick. It’s completely my fault. I decided for 4 weeks I wouldn’t eat dairy or sugar as I’ve previously feltContinue reading “Day 258 – Excess”

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 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 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 229 – Big Fat Cravings

I’m suffering from big, fat, mouth watering cravings tonight. I know what’s causing it. I’ve had a rubbish week, banging head ache for 2 days, rushed yoga practice, little time to myself and my step daughter really grating. This evening, I ran (read waddled) with my lovely mummy friend. We went around a local villageContinue reading “Day 229 – Big Fat Cravings”

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”
