Already on day five of my Sober October challenge here. Can’t believe it!
Each morning, I am waking up looking forward to the day ahead, even with all the delayed onset muscle soreness right now. That feeling is a constant reminder of the work I am doing and I want more!
Which I will for a while as I already hit the gym today! I took off for the first time since August for a lunch break to hit the gym. Work really is a bear but I have to force myself more to get away from my laptop. It’s so not good to sit allllllll day. So, I shut everything down. Did not look at my phone the whole time￼. I took the hour￼ going patiently through all my exercises. Worked out my shoulders, abs, legs, and arms-things that I couldn’t get to on the session before.￼ The gym was dead, which is my favorite! I can crank up my headphones and bop around without feeling like anyone is criticizing me. (We all feel that at the gym btw)
So. So far I am feeling pretty motivated and optimistic, which is exactly what I wanted to feel. I haven’t touched any alcohol nor any snacks. I like what I am seeing. By no means am I in shape, well, potato is a shape, and maybe my mind’s messing with me, but I can already see some changes. Maybe the alcohol was bloating me up or something, because I feel like my face looks deflated and my gut is more like chub. If that makes any sense. Haha.
I am, however, nervous for this weekend ahead￼. My weekends usually consist of going out all day or getting together with friends all night, which equals lots of restaurants, take out and drinking. This weekend, I have not made any plans with friends, only one birthday party on Saturday night with family on the agenda. And it’s with my in-laws. Which now that I am thinking about it… I don’t know how I’m going to survive without booze 😆! But! I am determined to use every tactic I have in my arsenal of ignoring the stupidity and drinks around me in order to make this weekend successful!
Now I need it… Wish me luck!!
